    Just thought I'd chip in here guys... and I really do apologise if everyone knows this stuff already :p .

    Recently I had problems with my rack unit giving out some tone-killing ground loop noise through the cab, which seriously depressed me consider the amount of money I poured into the new setup. I eventually figured out that a DI box with ground lift switch on it would fix the problem, great! Problem was in Australia you only ever bloody see $300-$400 DI boxes (inflated prices galore, like $3300 RRP for an Ibanez Prestige bass).

    Thankfully found an awesome little box from Behringer (whom I usually avoid) that is just a simplified DI box with ground lift called the HD400. It's passive too which is a big plus.

    These things are $50 AUD, and I've seen people the US saying theirs cost under $20 USD so yeah... just wanted to say if any of you blokes are having the same problem, these things work wonders, so happy with my tone now :)

    PS. Anywhere new members can introduce themselves? Would like to post up my rig and say hello properly
