    anyone using them in their signal chain ? -- either at instrument level into the preamp to quelch finger noise -- or in the effects loop or preamp out ?

    I figure sustain will surely suffer -- so they may not be too popular. I'm gonna try a Boss pedal as a quick fix to cancel out some serious AC hum until I can find out all about power conditioners and if they are needed/worth the cost.

    Have you tried locating the source of the hum? You are usually better of trying to fix the existing problem than adding unnecessary stuff to your signal chain.
