It's just a joke
Anybody got a power conditioner to recommend? I have an Axe-FX coming and I want it very protected from electrical BS.
I have the same one. I used a $80 rackrider for years until it bit the dust last year. This Furman has been great. Maybe it's just me but I tend to not overthink this kind of stuff. Do I want my gear protected? Sure, but how often do I see a crippling power surge? I've only once ever played in a venue that had shoddy electrical, and I wouldn't buy a $500 power conditioner, but I think $100 is a good price to pay for the basic protection.
Dude I totally get your point, and for a lot of players yeah that's really a good thing. For me though, I've always used double-locking trems, so once it's in tune it's good to go, rack tuners back in the day were $250 (i have no idea the current market and FU I don't want to google it), and even recently we had these huge on-stage banners in front of the amps, so I couldn't see it anyway even if I tried.Meh, 1U tuners are great because they're easy to see from a distance, but that's a topic for another thread.
Yeah, the tuner is pretty sweet, but it kinda has trouble with our tuning. We use 8s down a whole step, and it definitely has a problem with that low E haha. I use the harmonic to get it, but a dedicated rack tuner may be a good idea in the future. Plus, I'd like to be able to tune without having to get within the general vicinity of my rig.The Axe-FX tuner is pretty decent, and with some MIDI controllers, you can see the tuner on the floorboard. I still kind of want a nice 1u dedicated tuner, though.
