Morgan Re: What is a ground loop?
well i haven't experianced this, but i find people saying they want a transformer in the A/B box to stop this from occuring.  
 
What kind of transformer?  
 
All the a/b box uses in a 9v battery and indicator LED's

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

i know of two placed to get a good quality unit of this type: 1) roll your own, using RG's schematic at Geo, 2) buy a Roger Mayer Crossroads Signal Director.
