Sorry folks, if this has been posted already, but I need help so here goes- I own an Ashdown ABM500 EVO amp. Sounds incredible. My one problem, though, is that the DI has a constant buzz when I'm running it into the house soundboard at gigs, or any type of recording equipment. The buzz from the DI is so significant that I have to simply mic my cab and that's it. Apparently this is a common problem, and here's Ashdown's response from their FAQ- Q: I have a hum or buzz when using the DI output on my amp. A: Pin 1 is the earth on the Ashdown Di. If you expeariance earth hum on early non EVO models of Ashdown Bass amps you can simply remove the wire to Pin 1 either in your cable or in the amp (via your local service centre or qualified dealer). Now, everything I've heard is that doing this is a BAD IDEA. TheYamaha Sound Reinforcement guide repeats several times that you can get a severe shock if you play through un-grounded gear. I've had several other people tell me the same. So, any suggestions anyone? I really want to start using my DI but I don't want to get knocked onto my butt during a gig! Thanks!
