    Here's a new one, at least for me. I was playing outside last night and the Walter Woods literally lost power for less than a second three times in a row after that it was fine. All the sound equiptment and lights that the place was using caused the drop out. I really don't know. But the really wierd thing is that none of the lights including The WW Ultra's power light even dimmed.

    Next time say hi and I'll by you a brewsky! I think that you're Ju Ju is probably back in sync Uncle Toad. But I am looking at a Furman Power Conditioner just in case it isn't. Problem is, the smallest one they make weighs more than the Woods and costs a few samolians as well. Go Figure! http://www.furmansound.com/product.php?div=01&id=PF-PRO But is does have Red Side panels that will color coordinate with Walter's front plate nicely.

    For awhile, I used an ART power condition that had a volt meter. At a couple of gigs, the meter showed less than 100 volts...I imagine that's a strain on some amp designs, while others just sound "browner."

    You might try a voltmeter at that venue if you play there again.
