Surge protectors

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Davidoc, Jul 6, 2002.


  1. Which ones would you recommend? Thanks!
     
  2. Isobar... they're rugged, reliable, and they cover $$$ damage to your equipment.
     
  3. Ditto the Isobar.

    I use an Tripplight Isobar Ultra Dianostic Surge Suppressor. Has green and red lights to show if the current is wired and grounded correctly.

    It's made of heavy duty "bullet proof" steel.

    Heavy duty circuit breaker.

    It also has -75db of RF EMI suppression.

    Three of the four outlets are isolated.

    It has a FAT cord that won't choke the flow.

    I use it before my rack mounted Power Conditioner and never worry about power interference or surges.

    Believe it or not I scored mine for $18.
    That's a deal I couldn't pass up.

  5. Thanks for the advice, but with what those things cost, I could get a power conditioner. Are there any cheaper alternatives?
     
  6. You should be able to score a Tripplight isobar at a used computer store for $20.oo or less. New will cost you $40 or $50.

    You can get a rack mount Rack Rider 15NL for 29.99 online at mars music. No bells and whistles (or lights, hence the NL) but a very simple, cheap power conditioner. Works fine for me.
