The Hum-X works like magic. I carry one with me to ever gig and it never fails to eliminate ground loop hum from floursent lights and neon lights. It has taken that annoying buzz out of my amps at home & on the road. Just passed one to the new bass player in my band at rehearsal and solved his amp buz problems too. I highly recommend this product.

I recently bought one of these units and was very disappointed. It did absolutely nothing to reduce the hum. I tried different amps and guitars and different wall outlets but it didnt reduce any hum whatsoever. I guess the hype about this product is just that... hype. Don't waste your money on this piece of junk

Ebtech Hum X Hum Exterminator WORKS!

By Steve

from Redondo Beach

Comments about Ebtech Hum X Hum Exterminator:

I play a club that has terrible grounding. Plugging in any amp into the Hum-X has rid me of all humming through my speakers. At home, I would get ground hum whenever I would us my AC adapter for my laptop. But use the HUM-X in the Amp/stereo, not the laptop.

SAFELY eliminates the noise

By G

from Charleston, SC

Comments about Ebtech Hum X Hum Exterminator:

DO NOT take the advice to use a cheap adapter to get rid of ground loop hum!!! Plugging a 3-pronged cord into a 2-pronged adapter is the same as pulling the ground plug out of the cord. This is known as "lifting" the ground. It leaves the device(s) ungrounded, wide open and vulnerable to surge damage, and absolutely can get you electrocuted under the right circumstances. I had ground loop hum coming through my monitors caused by my laptop and used an adaptor to "solve" the problem. One week later as I was plugging the cord in there was a loud pop and my cord had fried. $100 for a new one. Theres a reason why music stores sell this product and not cheap adaptors. Save yourself the risk and buy this product.

HUM X SAVES FROM ELECTRICUTION

By PEEWEE

from Cincinnati

Comments about Ebtech Hum X Hum Exterminator:

THe HUM X is a great invention that redirects the ground loop noise while keeping your equipment grounded. The $0.75 ground lift will let you get shocked (or electricuted) while plucking your bass or guitar strings while singing into a microphone and your lips touch the microphone screen.The HUM X will keep your instrument grounded while eliminating the 60Hz noise. There for this is a great product that works!

HUM X WORKS !!!!!!

By J.

from Cali

Comments about Ebtech Hum X Hum Exterminator:

Works really well in my studio.. I'm running on a gateway laptop,focusrite interface, UA mic pre, and my rokit speaker monitors. Everytime i plug in my laptop charger, my speaker monitors HUMS like crazzy..i tryed everything, and i came across the HUM X and heard alot of good reviews, so i gave it a shot.. first i pluged it alone with the laptop charger, into the power outlet, and still got hums, so it took me a while to figure it out, but i found out, it was the UA mic pre that made it hum.. cause when i unpluged my mic pre from the interface, the hum stops. so i tryed pluging the mic pre into the Hum X and then into the wall outlet, and then BAMM!!! NO MORE HUM.... HUM X is worth the price.. people have diferent problems with their equipments, so u maight have to experiment with it.. again its works great !!

Don't let the price scare you .... it WORKS

By RUSS POWELL

from Arizona

Comments about Ebtech Hum X Hum Exterminator:

I own a Mesa Road King II and was plagued by a hum that got worse as I increased the gain on my distorted channels. I checked to see what was available to help me get rid of it. I saw the Hum X but was immediately put off by the price. I decided to try other methods first. I changed power tubes. Still hummed. I changed the preamp tubes. Still hummed. I dialed back the gain and tried to push the front end with OD pedals which totally defeated the magic of an RKII. I reluctantly bought the Hum X. Complete cure. The hum is gone. I don't normally write reviews of products. I felt so much frustration chasing my tail over this issue that I wanted to save others the aggravation by sharing my mistake. I should have bought the Hum X from the start and saved myself the time and money. Like the title says, don't let the price scare you. It works.

It Works Perfectly

By Steve

from Dallas, Texas

Comments about Ebtech Hum X Hum Exterminator:

I use both an acoustic amp and an electric amp with a split cable from my guitars which have magnetic and acoustic pickups on them. The two amps create a hum caused by two signal paths connected to ground at two points. I completely eliminate the hum by plugging the acoustic amp into the Hum X which goes directly into a three prong wall socket. No degradation of sound quality and the hum is completely eliminated. Great product that works perfectly.

Completely eliminated my annoying hum!

By Michael Romero

from Chandler, AZ

Comments about Ebtech Hum X Hum Exterminator:

This product did exactly what it is advertised to do: it exterminated the hum. What's great about this is that you can plug this thing into the wall, and plug your power strip into it, and it eliminates hum across all the devices plugged into your strip! :)

This thing works

By ROD WRAY

from Boise

Comments about Ebtech Hum X Hum Exterminator:

OK I was skeptical but also desperate. I play one particular venue about four or five times a year. An old hall with terrible power on the stage. Our PA rack is fine because it's on a separate circuit on the other end of the hall. The stage AC is on the same circuit as the dimmers for the main hall. We always have a terrible BUZZ from our on-stage amps and powered monitors. I had heard about these and thought they seemed expensive, and was also skeptical, because this is such a common problem for so many people, that I thought if there were a fix as simple as that everyone would have one. I ran to the Boise Guitar Center about two hours before the gig and bought one. I plugged it into the stage AC and then plugged in our power distribution to it. NO BUZZ AT ALL!!!! The guitar player thought his amp wasn't working because it was so quiet. Maybe it's just a placebo, but I swear it made the amps all perform better too. I'm buying another. Well worth the cost to stop the BUZZ! that if so annoying. Everyone should have one in their gear bag.

Helps reduce 60-cycle hiss created from single-coil pickups

By MARVIN ROBERTS

from Loveland, CO

Comments about Ebtech Hum X Hum Exterminator:

The Hum X reduced the 60-cycle hiss from my Strat's single coil picks through my Egnator Tweaker 88, set at medium gain, by 90 percent. The other 10 percent is handled by my ISP Decimator. Very satisfied with the results. No need to shield my Strat's internal cavity or pickups, but I could probably get rid of the Decimator if I did.

    Worked magic with horizontal scrolling video bars

    By Daren Eveleigh

    from Vienna Virginia

    Comments about Ebtech Hum X Hum Exterminator:

    I installed a plasma TV in a residence in 2005 with the source being several video components. I ran 60 feet of RG6 Quad shield coax from the rack room to the TV above the fireplace. This was HD component video. Immediately I had slight hum bars scrolling up the screen. I tried all kinds of things to get rid of it, the fact was that it was caused by a ground loop, having the TV on a separate electrical feed than the source equipment was the cause of this. The customer never noticed it and let me off the hook, last week he called stating it had grown very noticeable. He was right, it was affecting the color of the image grossly. I popped in a simple ground eliminator as a test only, and the bars went away. I removed it and after research found the HUM X and installed it the next day. Wow, almost 6 years of living with bars could have been avoided had we known this product existed. Works wonderfully. Picture is perfect and customer is elated. The Hum X removes ground loop end of story. Worth every penny.

    Does exectly what it claims.

    By Samuel Acuna

    from Provo, UT

    Comments about Ebtech Hum X Hum Exterminator:

    This little thing works great. But remember, it is only really for ground loop hum, so if you are looking for a cleaner signal it might not fix everything you want. The reason I gave it four stars is because it is always on, whether or not you have something plugged in. So it can get kind of annoying to have to keep unplugging it when you are done with it.

    This thing really works!

    By james dean

    from Portland, OR

    Comments about Ebtech Hum X Hum Exterminator:

    Over the last week I have had a loud hum coming from my Egnator Tweaker when paired with my pedalboard. Picked up one of these today & plugged my amp into it. Amazingly the hum was reduced by about 80%. I have to listen real close to hear any hum at all.

    Gets rid of hum when using two guitar amps

    By PLINY

    from undisclosed

    See all my reviews

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Ebtech Hum X Hum Exterminator:

    The guitarist in my band likes to use two amps on stage, one pointing forward for the crowd to hear and one pointing back as a monitor so that he can raise his personal volume without ruining my mix. In some venues he would get a horrible hum. Plugging one of the amps into the HumX got rid of the hum. It was amazing!

    Comments about Ebtech Hum X Hum Exterminator:

    I got an ABY pedal in order to switch between 2 amps or play through them together. When I first plugged both amps into the ABY pedal I got a ridiculous amount of 60 cycle ground loop hum. I did some research and finally came across the HumX. Worked like magic and everything sounded how it should. It worked perfectly for my situation.
