I bought this for our rehearsal space and gigs. The rehearsal space is chronically short sockets. But has decent power. This is replacing several tired shaky and intermittent. And to haul to gigs in my gig bag so I can plug all my amps and effects into one quality power strip. Several reviewers have commented that it does suppress some line noise. I didn't notice that but we do have pretty good power in our rehearsal space. We will see how it does at a gig with sketchy power. I've got at least 5 rack mount Furmans between my studio and our PA. Some are decades old and have never once had issues. So I have faith in Furman products. For the price this can't be beat with its LONG black cord. Steel housing. Quality outlets and some basic line filtering and surge suppression. My only regret wasn't buying a couple more when I had the coupon.

I feel the steel on the box is just a hair thin. I'd like to see this made out of steel one gauge thicker. I think then it would likely be indestructible for light touring and local gigs. It's not chintzy by any means. Just a little less than it could be. It's obviously built for a price point and offers tremendous value. That's only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. But really at this price it's a 5 star value.

Given all of the sketchy outlets I've seen in dives over the years it would have been extremely cool if Furman had included the 3 LEDs of a polarity and ground circuit tester. Yeah you can buy one for 4.99 at the local big box home store. But having the circuit detection built in would be nice. It would add to the price but not by much.

All in all a very nice alternative to junky power strip for equiptment like tube amps that don't need a more sophisticated rack mount power conditioner

First let me say that I have owned several Furman products for almost 20 years, they have always been high quality. I have been doing some work with the band this summer at a Marina/Yacht Club. The power supplied to us from the marina has been suspect with power surges. I decided to get this portable power conditioner for these gigs. It seems to work fine, but my biggest gripe with the unit is the power switch is uber sensative. Once the unit is turned on, if you even breath next to the switch, the power flashes on and off. This is precisely the reason why I bought the unit was to prevent this from happening. I am dissapointed with the quality control and the quality of the switch.

Noise Filtering that works....

By ChiefTracks

from Tennessee

Comments about Furman SS-6B Surge Block:

PLan and simple this strip provides clean power with minimal cost. I tested two average strips with subpar and similar features and found that the SS-6B provided the cleanest/lowest noise combo. I have very audible AC noise within my home and this product along with a Furman Rack helps my digital gear tremendously------Going to buy another Furman today!

Comments about Furman SS-6B Surge Block:

I own two Furman PL8 one space rack units. These look good too. I've used these and they kick around the stage well tough metal boxes with solid switches. Excellent protection well worth the money, top value.

Comments about Furman SS-6B Surge Block:

Great surge protector, on/off switch, when you plug in power cords you can feel them fit in nice and tight in the power sockets. The extra long cord is a plus too. Highly recommended for the studio or live environment.

Built well for the money

By Brook Falkenstein

Comments about Furman SS-6B Surge Block:

I was a little skeptical to buy these at first since they were very cheap and you usually get what you pay for, but I like Furman so I took a risk and bought a few for work. I must admit, when I received them I was immediately impressed by their construction, so I bought 10 more. Six plugs is better than four on the quad boxes we've been using, and a wide box is good for our live sound - they don't tip over on stage like the skinnier strips. The power cord is a nice, thick, 14 gauge, not the cheaper 16 gauge found on most other brands. It's been a few months now and we've only had one of the surge LED's punch in, but so far no failures. I still can't believe that Furman can make these for so little!

Great....

By christopher peterson

Comments about Furman SS-6B Surge Block:

I'll be buying more of these. What more needs to be said.
At first I was a little concerned because it was so difficult to insert the Plug prongs into this device. Then I realised it was supposed to be, It is made to hold onto plugs and it works extreamly well. The surge protection is why I bought these, When I took them out of the boxes and realised they had 15 foot cords I just smiled.
Solid construction. Quality cords and electrical components.
I shopped around where I live before I started looking online. I found some alright stuff but it seemed over priced and cheaply made. When I found the furman section on musicians friend I decided to try these out just because I have had furman rack conditioners in the past and I know it's quality stuff. Suprisingly the price for these was the same as cheap plastic ones with 2 foot cords at the stores here. I call that value..

    Comments about Furman SS-6B Surge Block:

    I ordered this product because of the brand and reputation but had to return it because of a defect. Musician's Friend listed this product as an open box item in mint condition at a lower price. I examined it upon arrival and noticed that one corner of the bottom plate was pushed in about 3/8" which I thought could mean internal damage. I proceeded to return it for that reason. Additionally, I wanted to exchange it for the one at their normal price and pay for the difference but was told that it wasn't in stock. So, I had to buy it elsewhere.

      Stopped ground hum and good value. I gigged at a place where I was getting a lot of ground hum from the power outlet. The band made me use a ground bypass, which is not that safe. A the same place with this surge block, I now have no hum and my equipment is protected against power surges. Easy to use, plenty of extension, well made and reasonable price.

        For me, power supply was an afterthought, but I am very impressed with the difference this product makes and very glad that I bought it. At practice volume, my rig is completely silent when I'm not playing - no buzz whatsoever. This product seems to be very sturdy, and it has a long cord. A good purchase.
