Well, just looking for something to cut down some noise. This drive's me particularly crazy with new strings, and if I change to guages of strings i use or try to lower my action too low. I get lots ot little clinky string noise, I dont get it on my buddies setup or on his bass, just on mine. The action isnt too low for it, but its close ;p Beside that little clinky noise, once in awhile i get a little bit of sound problems with muting, i'll miss something and a bit of sound from an unmuted string will come out, nothing horrible or probably uncommon for most players to have sound escape once in awhile, but I want to know what i would use to get rid of that. These arent essential... but i really dont know, or understand anything about Rack systems, Effects or any of that... So the evil clanky noise I get once in awhile and some occasional string sound let loose are what im looking to get rid of. These would be fixed by a Noise gate correct? To block out the low volume "annoying" sounds?
