    I am pretty sure they stopped making those. Any you see are left overs and as such prob have the hum. They just came out with a whole new line of "micro" amps.
    I have a superfly and the hum really wasn't that bad. My main beef with the amp is that after having it for 6 months with little use it now sounds like it has digital "overdrive". I will be talking to Ashdown soon to get it repaired just as soon as I get my perfect 10 fixed which decided to start popping fuses...
     
  4. Aren't they releasing a new amp that replaces this about now?

    **edit (what he just said)

    I've got one, and yes, they have been discontinued for more powerful models at an even smaller size.

    The hum...I read about it and bought one anyway. When I first plugged it in, I could hear the hum. but only because I was listening to it and really paying attention to it. After 30 seconds, I didn't notice it anymore.

    I have played several hours in live situations with the Superfly, and you will not hear any hum whatsoever onstage....too much other "noise" going on. Drummer banging on something, guitarist tuning, keyboardist doing something...never a dull moment.

    The "hum" is a non-issue, IMHO. Don't fret it. I have a Peavey Max 700 whose fan is louder than the Superfly hum. Seriously.
     
  8. But does it come through the DI?

    I honestly don't know. We are off this weekend, but we get back on-track beginning next Friday night. I will respond to you next Sunday to let you know.
     
  10. This is brief 'cos I'm at work. Mine has NO hum through the DI. Hum through 1 channel-turn off the tweeter and it goes away. HTH

    There is a tiny amount of hum, same as in lots of amps.
