Re: Dealing with hum due to multiple amp use
Thanks for all the replies.  
 
It's true I have more AC powered stuff than just the amps, there is the Leslie and the Echoplex. The Leslie doesn't have a grounded cable, and reversing the plug (Ha, it's not even polarized, that's how old it is!) or unplugging it doesn't add or subtract hum. The Plex has a grounded plug and it does hum without a ground lift.  
 
So that's 5 AC powered devices: Three amps, two effects. Would the Voodoo switcher or R.G.'s gadget still solve all that?  
 
David, if I wanted to build one of those HumX's, I would put the diodes inline, in series on the ground wire?  
 
Are the diodes in series or parallel?  
What kind of diodes would I use?  
 
Thanks again,
