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:

    This is my second purchase of this product, and it is by far the best surge protector I've found for musical gear and home electronics. Simply put, there are no worries when gear is plugged into this. My guitar signal chains seem quieter. Built like a tank, I know it will last.

      Comments about Furman SS-6B Surge Block:

      As a musician with "wall worts" for multiple peddle and pre-amp devices for guitar, the introduction of RFI through the power lines became a critical problem that showed itself through the PA system. The SS-6B has, so far, successfully eliminated that problem; I've yet to run into a circumstance where the noise reappeared. I keep at at the far end of my power chain to minimize additional RFI acquisition.

        Comments about Furman SS-6B Surge Block:

        Great power option. Plenty of length and very rugged. Low noise when dealing with noisy power situations or high EMI. A perfect option would be to add a USB connection and space the sockets a little more but it's a solid 9 out of 10 the way it is.

          From some reviews I read before purchasing I was hoping that this may be thought of as a primitive power conditioner. I've been having the 60 Hurts Hum Blues with my guitar amps so I'm looking for solutions. This didn't help the noise issue but I still like it for its durability and the protection of my equipment as I had no protection before.
