So, as I play out more and more, I find I get to deal with all kinds of ancient, hackeneyed power wiring in bars and other venues. After one of the bands opening with us blew two fuses (in two different amps) in one gig, I've decided that I should probably look into some form of power protection.
So I'm looking to get a rackmounted power conditioner. Everyone seems to use Furman, but they have a ton of different models at all different price points, and 95% of them look exactly the same. I like the idea of the ones that have lamps out back to illuminate the back for connections and such, but that's all I know, and that's hardly a feature to make or break my decision on.
Odds are, at its most strenuous application, I will be running a 400W bass head, a rack tuner, and maybe a couple of 9V pedals on a pedalboard off of this unit.
Which of the many Furman models (or should I go with *shudder* Monster?) should I be looking at? I'd rather not spend more than $100-150 for a conditioner, and with the way things are right now, less is MUCH better than more.
Grab a used Furman PL-Plus (Series II or better if possible) off Ebay, Can be had for 60-100 and it has the LED meter for "rack coolness enchancification"TM
Also has the popout lights if you dig that sort of thing.
