Electrical shielding

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by RavCat, Feb 6, 2006.

  1. Hi guys,

    I own a Boss ME-50B which I put on top of my stack, rather than place it on the floor (I prefer to change the settings manually than save everything in patches).

    However, when I use my amp at high volume, the electrical interferance between the Boss and the amp is pretty loud. I don't know which way the interferance is moving (amp > pedal / pedal > amp).

    I was wondering if putting some sort of electrical shielding between the two units would fix the problem? What kind of material should I use: a sheet of metal perhaps?


  2. I'm not sure if this will help or not, but have you tried turning the noise supressor on the back all the way down?
  3. Thanks. Unfortunately, I've been there, tried that - it's no good I'm afraid.
  4. Are you able to plug them into separate power circuits?
    How about a line conditioner like a Furman?
