Putting the studio back together , I fired up my handbuilt amp that Mark Abrahamian built for me last year ( God rest his soul - great guy ) , that I had Dave Friedman later give the Brown Eye.
Sounded really nice. - until I stopped playing and an annoying hum/buzz is audible. I thought a power conditioner would help , so I grabbed one at Best Buy ; while shopping for a last minute gift for the wife
Result , the hum/buzz still there. Looks like a job for the decimator pedal. Mine apparently died , so I'll have to buy a new one.
What I DID learn was , the sound of my Brown Eye was A LOT clearer and SWEETER. I thought I was dreaming. I'd try it with the conditioner , without , with , without. Wicked ! Seems the finer the instrument and amp , the more audible subtle changes can be heard. It didn't take away the hum while not playing , but the better sound from the amp makes the conditioner worth keeping.
Any suggestions for best power conditioners ? Everyone agree the Decimator is likely the answer , or does someone suggest another cure ?
