Digitech Drop Pedal's ground loop hum

Hello, folks!

Any of you who owns a Digitech Drop pedal?

Is the ground loop hum normal when the both the Drop and other distortion pedals are on? I'm thinking of isolating the Drop by powering it with a spare PSU I have to eliminate this.

Thank you!

No hum here. Good cables & good power unit could help.

No issues with mine at all. I would check your power supply. It needs at least 300mv. Make sure you are using either the adapter that came with it or some kind of power unit that has isolated outputs like the Voodoo lab stuff. Other than that, check cabling and your other pedals for issues. Use one at a time to diagnose where the issue is.
