Thats the thing I can never remember to say. “Choke Coils”. We have been over this, so I know to say they are not fully isolated, but I can never remember to say Choke Coils (Thanks once again @howard)
Yeah, like I said @terb, I use Caline power supplies. They Claim they are individually isolated. I have never looked inside, but I believe Howard HAS looked in his, or a similar one and was able to determine that they use choke coils and claim isolation because it is easier to say for advertising.
So I am willing to bet that my CALINE does the same thing. I don’t experience any noise that should not be there.
My compressors and OD / Fuzz pedals, but I run them thru the noise suppressor so I don’t have to hear it in headphones all the time.
But, there is no strange noise or hiss / hum that should not be there, unless I introduce a bad guitar cord, or plug in a bass that has a bad input jack or pot that is getting interference from twisting and touching the wall or something like that.
I am completely happy with mine and i have two.
I found these pedals while I was looking at tuners again (I sold my TS-2, well traded it for my BC-1X really) and saw the Stax, thought it was a cool looking pedal for a decent price, and then I realized it was doubled as a PS, so i searched for others.
NOW, I have not noticed that any one of the pedals have stated ISOLATED,. which MIGHT mean they are not using choke coils inside them. I think somebody will need to get on and see how it does. if it does fine, keep it, if not, send it back.
