    hi i am from the uk, and am wondering if there is any bass players who can recomend a good power conditoner? there seems to be a lack of furman products here, and other power conditoners for sale here are like £50? that cant be much good? i have currently got an ampeg svt4-pro amp and rack tuner and am looking at building a nice rack, can any 1 recomend a good furman one which will suit me better? or any other good well made power conditioner that could be recomended? i am prepared to spend for a good one but hopefully i dont wanna buy nothing too pricey, maybe £300+

    any suggestions would be great :D thanks
     
  2. Why do you need a power conditioner? Do you know what they are? They are just a rackmountable power strip! Why do you want to waste 300 Euros on one?

    If you really need one ( :rollno: ), I don't think I've ever seen anything besides those furmans

    i want a power conditioner because i see alot of bass players using them in their racks, any they are suppose to make your amp last longer and run smoother. i want to know what other bass players think about this and which models are they using :D

    I'm going to move this one to the Amps forum. Your'e more likely to get an educated answer over there.

    This topic is discussed at least every other week, and you'll find at least two open threads on it at any point in time. Bottom line, surge and noise protection is very inexpensive, and 50 pounds is the most you should pay. Voltage stabilization is very expensive, but the good news is that chances are less than one in a thousand that you need it.
