    HI when I build pedalboards back in 70 thies en 80thies I remember always disconnet the earth wire of the little guitarcable between pedals, I connect 1 earth wire in the beginning of the chain. But with todays George L cable you can't do that and you are getting hum from your pedals, because the earth wire of the power supply connects all the earth of the pedals. I hope you can understand mine question because its dificult to explain in English when our from Holland.
    Does anyone knows her a answer to ?
    Peace Strat58

    My george L cabled pedalboard is dead silent. If you experience hum I would definitely check the way you power your pedals.

    Hi Jero,
    What kind of power supply do you use ? I use a T Rex Fluel tank.
