Whether you're gigging, laying down tracks or mixing, the AC power feeding your gear is full of interference and line disturbances that you'll hear loud and clear--annoying clicks, buzzes, and hums. And although you may not hear it immediately, dirty power can also cause loss of dynamic range, a harsher-sounding mix, and increased noise floor that can transform your tube-warm tone into a transistorized sonic nightmare that can ruin every song in a set or destroy an otherwise perfect studio take.
Always sound your best
The Monster Clean Power circuitry of the PRO 1000 uses patented filters to dramatically reduce electronic noise on the power line. With clean power, you'll enjoy purer, more natural tone and increased dynamic range, so you'll always sound your best--onstage and in the studio.
Like personal computers, the sensitive electronics inside your equipment can be easily damaged or destroyed by the surges and spikes common with power lines today. The problem is even worse if you live in an area plagued by lightning or power blackouts. Extremely high voltage can travel through an unstable power line at any time--mid-set on any stage or mid-take in any studio session--seriously damaging or even destroying your precious gear. The Monster Power PRO 1000 features extreme surge protection with 2775 joules of metal oxidized varistor protection for limiting surge voltage and current no matter where your music takes you.
More than just a surge protector
It doesn't just stop with surge. Clearly labeled sockets differentiate between the Analog, Digital, and High Current filters, allowing you to organize your connected gear for easy hookup while also optimizing its performance. That saves a lot of aggravation when you are behind your equipment rack trying to find the right plug.
And unlike regular power strips that always come up just a little too short, you'll appreciate PRO 1000's extra heavy duty cord, which features gold-plated contacts for maximum power transfer, just like you expect in a Monster Power product.

First, yes, this is a nice piece of equipment. I'm not convinced of the 'isolation' as I often heard pops and clicks through the PA when plugging in or unplugging other items, but otherwise, seems to be a nice (albeit slightly overpriced as is typical of the brand) power strip. The real issue with mine was that the plastic endcaps began degrading over time - like very slowly melting. Literally, the surfaces became sticky. And no, not from heat - this thing was only on when I was playing guitar, it did not get noticeably hot in use, and for 99.9% of it's existence it has been inside me my more or less climate controlled house. One of the very few times I did take it out to a gig, it slipped out of a bag I was carrying and landed on one of the now brittle end caps, cracking it in two and exposing the wiring inside the case. I called Monster and they said they were really sorry but they could not give or sell me new end caps. For want of a dollar's worth of parts (for which I would have readily paid fifty times that) I now have a completely useless (and otherwise entirely functional) piece of equipment and Monster has lost a customer - for life.
Way awesome conditioner, you gigging musicians out there! I even use it for my tv and surround sound system! Looking to eliminate that hum from the amps, but don't want to suppress your tone? This is the thing to buy!
