AC hum can really be a rabbit hole, to fall into.yes, I agree. I’m not entirely ruling out something weird going on as we’ve had some weird power issues over the last 48 hours.
but it was plugged into an isolated outlet that I always plug into. Check with a tube amp and it was quiet as all get out. Thought it might be something with my guitar. Still there with guitar unplugged. Thought it might be a pedalboard issue. Still there with no input plugged into simplifier.
it was present with headphones and PA system.
I’ll try again today to make sure it wasn’t a fluke.
and I’m not trying to raise any issues as I think this pedal sounds fantastic. I’m just wondering if I may have a bad component or grounding issue in the pedal.
I've played my Simplifier with my Jazzmaster ( a noisy guitar) at a church a few weeks ago. No noticeable hum, until they lowered the house lights ( I played in a church warehouse of 400 +)
Sounded like bacon in a frying pan
Yep.. had to switch around pickup setting, to knock down the hum.
But I was able to adjust and get the music out.
At times, my Simplifier will "hum" at home, with my headphones. Play it through my two amps, no issues.
And when used at a few churches, it's nice and quiet. YMMV
