Contestant number one is the  Donner Noise Killer Guitar Noise Gate Suppressor Effect Pedal. The Donner Noise Killer is a classically designed product. Their skull branding is some of the best in the business and the pedal has been designed in the timeless mini-size for ultimate convenience and portability.

Now we will have look at an alternative, the  Mooer MNR1 Noise Killer Gate Pedal. Mooer may not be the most well known brand name on the market yet they seem to quietly go about their business producing some great products, especially for a company of their size and in the price range they operate within. They place a strong emphasis on research and development prior to product creation. Think MXR for a more well known brand name they can be compared to in terms of the type of pedals they manufacture.


Taking a closer look at the features of the  Donner Noise Killer Guitar Noise Gate Suppressor Effect Pedal

Like all good noise gate pedals it is designed specifically for cancellation of unwanted input frequency while retaining high quality output. The Noise Killer seems to be particularly effective at eliminating buzz.
