Applications

Instrument Rigs - You've got a rack for your effects, preamps, tuner...You're going to plug that into the wall? One big spike and your rig is up in smoke. Furman's standard level surge/spike protection defends your gear from the spikes and surges that are so common at gigs and practice spots. With Furman's standard level RFI/EMI filtration, you'll get a quieter tone without pops, crackles, and the local radio station coming out of your amp. Plus, dual pull-out lamps let you see your rack without turning the house lights on, while the digital voltmeter lets you monitor incoming voltage.

Recording - Can't track down where that noise is coming from? Your mix sounding flat? With Furman's standard level RFI/EMI filtration you'll lower the noise floor caused by the dirty AC power coming into your console or DAW. Furman's standard level surge and spike protection keeps your sensitive digital equipment from acting funny or burning up due to everyday spikes and surges. You can even monitor voltage changes, as the digital meter allows you to keep an eye on the incoming line voltage. With a 15A capacity and nine total outlets, it's enough to power your whole home studio.

DJ Equipment - Bars, clubs and other event venues have some of the worst power out there - from air compressors turning on and off to light shows pulling current loads up and down, the AC power can be a strain on the circuits in your rig. Furman's standard level protection and filtration keeps the bad stuff out. The dual pull-out front panel lights also let you discreetly see your board and gear without distracting from the show on the dance floor.

Pro Audio - When you're out there gigging, you never know what kind of power you're going to get. The wear and tear on mobile rigs eventually takes it toll - that's why it's smart to plug into Furman's standard level protection and RFI/EMI filtration. It keeps your equipment safe and sounding clean. It keeps your equipment safe and sounding clean, while the digital voltmeter lets you monitor incoming voltage. Whether you're setting up a show at the local club or powering up the church band for their next service, make sure you give them power they can trust.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Not bad. Simple and cheap rack mount."
Sound: It doesn't do anything negative to my sound. It doesn't really do anything positive either, but its not supposed to. It just protects your gear. Feature: The same as the guy below me said, it really is a glorified power strip. The lights are pretty nifty, they do illuminate your rack pretty well, but I don't find a use for them. I don't fault them being there though. Ease of Use: Big button, turn on. Green light means all's good. Turn off, your whole rig powers down. Quality: Not bad. If you have an expensive rig, of course you're going to want to buy a more expensive conditioner, but if you're like me and not made of money, this is a great rack. Value: I got a deal on this but its probably only worth $50. Again, a glorified power strip. Manufacturer Support: Haven't dealt with them yet The Wow Factor: You need a power conditioner if you have a rack. Its just good practice to protect your gear. Overall: I'm gonna hold on to it for a few years until I need to replace it with a higher quality, in which case I will probably be purchasing a higher quality furman.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Gets the job done at a good price."
Overall: It conditions my power which is why I bought it, it's also nice that it has lights and a dimmer know since it's being used for a live setup and you can't be to sure about clean power and great lighting conditions everywhere you go.
Style of Music: Heavy metal, Death, black, thrash.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
