Default Re: Eleven Rack + Boss ES-8 = Noise Issue ??

I think I figured out that simply my guitar is the problem. I play a Duesenberg V-Caster.
I removed a bit of Hiss by re-ordering the cable paths. Now I have the same noise with the guitar plugged in directly into 11R as when I plug it into ES-8 and use 4CM. The noise more or less disappears when I use the tone knob. This seems to be a thing with the circuits in the guitar. They are a bit unconventional in this model.

But still I am thinking about using Boss's NS-2 in my chain. But I don't really know how to set it up with the 4CM. It's quite confusing. Maybe you have an idea?

Glad you were able to narrow it down to the guitar.

As far as the NS-2, there are really only two places you can put it that may help your problem; either in between the ES-8 and the 11R or between your guitar and the ES-8. I can't say which one will be better, so give both spots a try and see which helps more.

Guiltar -> NS-2 -> ES-8 -> 11R guitar in.
Guitar -> ES-8 -> NS-2 -> 11R guitar in.
