View Full Version : fulltone mu-metal inductor

Hi, anybody know where I can get one of these? I'm having a terrible time with radio frequencies through my Dunlop 95Q.
I'm in the EU

Just thought I would give an update. I decided to try wrapping the stock black dunlop inductor in foil tape,something that they said would not work in a recent mu-metal thread. Guess what, it worked like a charm! So I suggest giving this a go before shelling out for some mythical unobtanium shield.:hide2

Mu metal is effective at shielding low frequencies (think 50/60Hz line frequency) but is not needed for radio frequency.
With out getting into the physics. Any conductor (copper or aluminum) will work well for electric fields and rf magnetic fields but you need high permeability like steel or mu metal to shield low frequency magnetic fields.
