Equipment Protection – The Furman PL-Plus II Power Conditioner

Furman PL-Plus II Power Conditioner with Voltmeter

   Being a guitar player and using very voltage sensitive amplifiers, I have always struggled with getting good clean power to my equipment. Bad power can cause all sorts of problems from strange noises to complete equipment failure. Today I’m going to recommend the power conditioner I use on my guitar rig, the
Furman PL-Plus II Power Conditioner with Voltmeter

   Before I got the Furman PL-Plus II I had several consistent problems with my power. There are several clubs I play that have a bad buzz that comes down the power line. The Furman PL-Plus eliminates that with its RFI/EMI interference filters. They stop the noise from neon lights, fluorescent lights, motors and radio transmitters. If those noises are coming down the power line, the Furman will stop them. I also had a problem with power drops and spikes causing my digital effects to momentarily reset causing a complete dropout in my sound. It was horrible! The Furman also solved that problem. The Furman PL-Plus II has been protecting my equipment and cleaning up my power for a few years now. I have never had a problem with power since I’ve had it.

   Another sweet feature I really like about the Furman PL-Plus II is the 20 LED front panel voltmeter that gives you instant visual feedback on voltage levels. I have used that meter to detect low line voltage caused by plugging too many amps or lights into the same circuit. I am honestly surprised at how often I use that voltmeter to spot check line voltage.

   The Furman PL-Plus II also has two integrated front panel lights with a dimmer control to light your effects rack front panel. It’s come in handy on those front panel buttons and knobs that are not lighted on my effects units. I don’t know how I made it for so long without rack lights.
