TC Electronic Sentry: Great Noise Gate Pedal

Post by elvis » Wed Nov 25, 2015 10:12 pm

I have an ISP Decimator G String. It worked very well, but it seems to have died. When I was using it, I did struggle a bit in that it only has a sensitivity knob, so you get the attack and delay that they give you. Still, those pedals work great.

I was going to replace it with another Decimator, but happened on the Sentry ad on the TC splash page. $100 less and more controls. Plus I love TC.

I hooked it up today. It works very well. Nice pedal.

Used the Sentry at rehearsal last night with my RA100. It was fantastic. Played at lots of volume. With it turned off the hiss and feedback were an uncontrollable nightmare. With it on, I didn't notice it was even there, except NO NOISE. Awesome pedal.

I run it with buffer on, not true bypass, but it really doesn't matter because I don't bypass it. It's always on in my rack.

High gain channel with overdrive pedal in front. Probably amplified G System noise. The amp by itself is pretty quiet.
