I am wondering if I should try driving in a new grounding rod solely for my Westinghouse, to have a completely independent system. If its not RF, isnt ground the only other option?
Again, Ive narrowed it down that its not anything in my pedal chain, nor any combination of things drawing from the same power source. Guitar straight in to amp with nothing else drawing power= noisy.
Am I correct that a ground lift would be a bad idea/not help?
Never lift a power ground. It’s there for safety. Ground loop problems can be safely
dealt with by lifting a signal ground.
