    Hi I've got my rack gear set up guitar into my line6 G55 wireless then into my Korg PitchblackPro tuner then into my Hartke HA5500 head. Every time I press the mute button on the tune I get a loud pop. Is there any way I can stop this?

    All the cables are fine. And I don't get the pop when I take the tuner out of the chain and put it in the fx loop.

    I've read about putting a 1megaohm resistor across the jack plugs. Should I do this on the cable between the tuner and wireless or on all the cables or on the jack socket on the guitar?

    The pop is a result of the true bypass setup inside the tuner. You can wire up a 1m resistor inside the pedal to help reduce the pop but I've never personally tried that. When I build pedals, I always put a 100u cap on the V+ of the pedal to eliminate the pop.

    Ask around freestompboxes or diystompboxes... I'm sure one of those boards has seen this issue possibly with this particular Korg tuner and likely have a simple solution for you.
