Chuck D. - This room is all LED light, no flourescents, no fans. Mostly I use all humbuckers or stacked singles, I almost never use true single coils (metalhead). I have to spin my chair to face a certain wall to get rid of noise and if I swing into certain "hot spots" the noise gets super insane. I may consider running a dedicated 30A 120V circuit to my mancave. I have a cinder block home and my sub panel is 50' away. Could do it with external conduit and just run a dedi circuit instead of having my stuff share the line with whatever the hell else is on the ckt.Single-coil pickups? If so, it's magnetic pickup, most likely from your amp. However, anything powered by the AC line could be the culprit, including fluorescent lights, fans, etc.
I'm contemplating picking up a generator and an isolator from the gigrig then picking up more bits every few months after that. It does look like an excellent adaptable system.If money was no object I would 100% go the gigrig route. For my set up i think it would have cost £350+ so I couldn’t condone that for just being a bedroom playa.
You also could just build a power supply...
This one can be isolated and not isolated. I don't know where you would get the mini isolated transformers though. Might be able to email the site for the specs. I know you already bought one, but just posting this so people can build one if they want. They are ridiculously simple, that's why truetone can survive as a business selling power supplies. This one is not isolated. Take a look at the gunshots though. It is probably child's play for all the experienced members on the forum.
I guess some people just wants to bash my idea. Sure, you could buy a crappy 30-40 dollar powersupply made by child slaves or criminally underpaid workers. Or you could have high quality parts in a not too difficult project, but whatever. 100 dollars is what you pay for a medium quality powersupply. That is a lot. Sure, you aren't gonna save a ton of money, but you are using high quality parts, and you are not supporting communists or Amazon. Speaking of which, if you buy from Amazon, you are getting a product made by communists and underpaid workers working in horrible conditions, and then you have mistreated employees packing it, but whatever. I guess nobody has anything good to say about my posts.
Whatever. I don't view it as political, I view it as sympathy for the workers that assemble the products. But I deleted my comment so I guess it doesn't matter.
The thing is, the truly isolated supplies have a transformer, rectifier, filter and regulator for each output.Wouldn’t be 120vac on the veroboard just on the transformer primary, secondary is attached to the veroboard which should only be something like 12vac which then gets rectified, filtered, and regulated.
I briefly looked into Rg’s spider power supply diy, real cool but these days with the prevalence of cheap, small, isolated supplies there isn’t any cost or size savings there. 10 or 15 years ago though, it may well have been the best option for someone with the skills
