What we say:

At A Glance

The Pylon Advanced Transformer Boost Noise Gate from KMA Machines is not only a premium noise gate but packs in a lot of other features too. Its simple yet very powerful set of controls makes it quick and easy to find the correct setting to work best with your setup and style of playing. Being built in Germany, it is of very high quality and also looks great with its snazzy graphics.

The Cut control can be used to tighten up your low end if needed, making this the ultimate noise gate for sculpting your tone too. With additional functions available such as using an External Trigger Input for external bypass switching or Gate-triggering, this is one powerful pedal!

Features We Love:

No More Noise

High and Low modes let you select the most appropriate gate style for your playing, with the Threshold control setting when it kicks in. Keep it soft for expressive playing then tighten things up for djent styles where you need those staccato stops. No matter what genre you play, the Pylon can really help to remove unwanted noise from your performance.

Boost Your Signal

The Pylon can be used to add up to a whopping 30 dB of gain! This can really transform your tone and with three different modes for the boost’s on/off state, you can choose from On, Off or Sync mode!

Multiple Setup Options

With the classic In and Out plus a Send and Return, you can hook this pedal up in a number of ways including the 4-Cable method. Perfect for those with big rigs and massive pedalboards!

Who Is It For?

The guitarist who wants full control over their sound and tight sonic delivery. The Pylon also works well with bass and synth, so it can be used on almost any instrument where you need that controlled and boosted delivery.

Customer reviews

Overall Rating 4/5 (1 reviews)

Fantastic pedal, but mine arrived broken, the boost turns itself off randomly when set to sync mode. KMA are sending me a new microcontroller which they say should fix the issue. I couldn't find anything online about this, so I don't think it's common. But KMA certainly seemed familiar with the issue. Five stars for the pedal. One star off for the disappointment and apparent lack of testing. But service from KMA was fast, friendly and helpful.
