I am looking for a power conditioner for once I get a rack setup, I ran across this and think its a steal for frickin $20. Its got plenty of outputs and I dont need anything high-tech, just a system that I can plug everything in to.


I'm obviously not wanting any tone coloring from a power conditioner, so will this suffice? or should I put a few more bucks into something a little "better"?
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.

It is NOT a power conditioner. It is an expensive rack mountable multi-outlet strip.

I'd assume the differences would mean much better surge protection and better build quality, same 8 3-prong adapters though, correct?


No need to assume... read the specs of both and compare, and then take a look at most of the racks in circulation and see what they use. Guess what? You'll find Furman at the top of that list for a reason.

I've heard that unless your running MONSTER gear, a power conditioner isn't all that important... However, I recommend this:

My setup will be a pre-amp, power-amp, BBE sonic Maximizer, and most likely an EQ of sorts, does that scream a power conditioner or will a powerstrip work just fine since I really am looking for something to plug into with everything.

Seriously??? I have played MANY MANY gigs using "normal" pedals nothing MONSTER, at places where the morons who decided to have live entertainment came to that decision via an "Oh by the way" let's have live music idea. Unfortunately they don't know that when you have the outlets that the band is required to use on the same circuit as the neon signs and refrigeration, that means the gear will make TONS of unwanted noise.

A "REAL" Power conditioner is NEVER a bad idea.

Depends on what you plan on doing with your gear. IF playing at home, and you have good wiring in the house-- sure use a plain old power strip. If you plan on gigging out, don't assume the optimistic view point regrading the clubs' electrical power, or the power of a generator for an outdoor gig.

Since my gear is important to me, I use a good ATA rated shock rack to protect it, and a Furman Power conditioner to protect it.
