Furman CN-1800S 15A Smart Sequencing Power Conditioner

The Furman CN-1800S is the best power conditioner that I’ve found for a guitar amp. It effectively cures all hums.

SmartSequencing, a technology from Furman, passively monitors the power and transfers it to your amplifier on the best available line. You will never have to worry about unbalanced lines in your system again!

The Multi-Stage Protection (SMP) provides both over-voltage and over-current protection. [Note: +12V is always connected to the power rail(s) that provide the highest possible voltage to the amplifier. Only an amp that is receiving +12V will complain about current.
