Ebtech Hum X Hum Exterminator

The Ebtech Hum X Hum Exterminator is my new "won't gig without it" piece of gear. I thought my power conditioners were eliminating noise--then I plugged in the Hum X and found out how it's SUPPOSED to be done.

Got hum coming from your power outlet? Not with the Hum X Hum Exterminator you don't!! featured

Ease Of Use If you can plug in your amp you can use this piece of gear. This is a filter that sits in between your amp's power cord and the power socket.

Sound I have the luxury of having two identical little Crate V5 combo amps. I plugged them both into the same power outlet in my house (one in the top outlet, one in the bottom) and turned them on with the volume at about 3/4. They both exhibited the usual hiss/cyclical 60-HZ noise. Then I turned off the bottom amp, unplugged it, put the Ebtech Hum X in-line, plugged it back in, and turned it back on. No noise. I repeated this operation with the other amp just to make sure I wasn't crazy. No noise. I've lived with the fact that the power in my house is "less than desirable" when it comes to noise and amps/recording. I don't usually throw around the word "panacea" but this little plug is a must-have if you've got noise coming from ground loops or bad power. It's been a long time since a piece of gear impressed me as much as the Hum X. Now I'm just wondering how they do it in such a small package. I'll be looking at the larger 8-channel units next!

Reliability Plug feels very sturdy. I've plugged it into multiple pieces of gear and had no problems. I can't say I'd gig it without a backup because I intend to have several of these around in the near future because it is now a must-have component for me. I won't play another gig without my gear plugged into an Ebtech.

Customer Support Never had to deal with them--product is simple and straight-forward with excellent results.

Liked about it No-brainer to install.
Outstanding reduction of ground loop and dirty power noise.
Sideways design doesn't cover the other outlet!

Didn't like I theoretically COULD complain that it's a little expensive, but for what you get, I can't bring myself to do so. Would be worth it at twice the price.

Overall satisfaction:
