Love mine but it has some serious hum on most settings, and I’ve tried three different power supply options.

huh weird. i tested on a bunch of supplies and never really seemed to have any abnormal hum. there's the usual noise/hum associated with amplifying the signal but nothing seemed out of the ordinary... that sucks if it's bugging anyone. it does seem to be better overall when run on an isolated supply but besides that idk. :idk:

Mine has no hum, and I'm usually pretty complainy about that kind of stuff.

Mine certainly rings whenever I touch it though.

Excited to see how the new version would compare!

Is this with other pedals in the chain or also when there's only instrument > PY > amp connected?
I had another pedal causing hum in the PY at one point but icr which one it was, and where in the chain...

Brian are you still making a Euro version of this? I want to get one for my Folktek when that comes in. I think in a rack version it'd be super useful. If not, I'll hunt I guess. :)

I also offered the other seller who is selling one 3 dollars just to piss him off. :) I love doing that shit.

Mine had developed a pretty bad ringing all the time.
I ended up replacing all the tubes and strapped them down and isolated a bit differently and it seemed to help a little.
I noticed all the ringing stops if I engaged the 3rd feedback switch which probably has to do with that last tube stage where the most gain would be.
Still loving the pedal though.
