    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!

    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.

      Comments about Furman SS-6B Surge Block:

      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.

        Comments about Furman SS-6B Surge Block:

        As a keyboardist that plays many different venues, the one thing thay all have in common is that the electrical outlets near the bandstand are always questionable regarding correct wiring, proper voltage, and firmness of connection. With the Furman most of these issues become non-existant. It's metal, therefore robust, the 15' cord eliminates an extension cord, and the security of seeing the LED glowing as a sign of protection gives me hope that my instruments will not suffer an electric meltdown any time soon.

                        Recently started gigging again and the places we play are very suspect when it comes to power. One particular place only has ONE outlet that works and that's ten feet off the ground powering a neon beer sign. I've spent thousands on PA equipment and my amps, so rather than have some electrical anomaly destroy my gear I bought this Furman outlet to protect it. Consider it a one payment insurance policy for your gear. Don't leave home without it!
