        I've read some of the other reviews and disagree! The humfrees do just that, stop the buzzing! I have solid state and tube amps, effects, etc,etc, These little plastic things space my components out correctly, isolate, and stop the buzzing. If you want to use electrical tape or something else, good luck. Why screw around? The humfrees don't cost that much, pass on a soda or two and get the good stuff! I can not believe some of the reviews talking about cost (their cheap), and being a pain to install (come on ya wimps, man up!). Bottom line they work, they look good, they fix the buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

        These are a great idea. Yes, they are very tedious to install. especially if you have a bunch of stuff in your rack. The first ones (that'd be the top thing in your rack) are beautiful. Then it's time for row 2 (Different story). Now the room that's taken up from the ones above make the one's below them bunch up and squish out when you tighten your rack screws. It takes time and patience and a flathead screwdriver ( to cram the things back behind the effect when they come squising out when tightened down.), but, it's possible to make them fit o.k. Just takes lots of messaging.

        100% eliminated a pesky ground loop hum in my rack gear (only 2-pieces)! Allows use of this equipment on live performance gigs where ground loop hum through high powered PA would be disastrous.

          Like I said, an inexpensive piece of mind. It wasnt nearly as hard as some people made it out to be to install. I installed them on a power conditioner and a compressor. I use quality cables so why not go that extra little mile to make sure you can have the best quality sound.

          These things are great. I've never had a single piece of gear get rack rash, in many years. They are a little trying to install, but once you've got them in place they look good and also help prevent ground-loop hum. I consider these essential to my gear.

          GREAT PRODUCT TO ELIMINATE HUM.

          By Ingvar Estrada-59BxJ

          from Henderson, NV.

          Comments about Humfrees Rack Isolation Tabs:

          Humfrees are a great product that are sometimes a little complicated to install-but is well worth it in the end for hum elimination and protection for your gear!

          Use your brain!

          Comments about Humfrees Rack Isolation Tabs:

          Most rack-mount gear is not grounded to the chassis of the device, so separating the chassis from the rack-ears will have no effect on ground-loops. In those rare cases where it does, electrical tape is cheap, readily available and easier to install. The real reason you want these things is because they help protect the delicate edges of your gear from banging the sides. They also help protect against the screws which will scratch and scrape the finish. Of course, plastic washers and more tape will do a good job of that too, but these look more "pro." You be the judge. Do you want to buy cheap little plastic parts at a thousand times their value just to look cool?

          Do they work?

          By Jay Shannon

          from Dallas, TX

          Comments about Humfrees Rack Isolation Tabs:

          Yes! They are sometimes a pain to install on bigger systems! However, In my experience I have found that you do not have to ISO every unit in your rack. (although it's preferred) If you take the time 1 by 1 you can usually pinpoint the problem spots and ISO only those units with the same results.

          No other choice really

          By Dogstarr1

          from Atlanta, GA

          Comments about Humfrees Rack Isolation Tabs:

          Look, you bought all this rak gear so you could get the best tone possible, right? Now you're going to put it in a rack where it's getting ground loops that ruin the otherwise pristine sound you so carefully crafted? If you want the best sound there really is no other choice and while the price might seem a little steep for little pieces of plastic, I'd like to personally thank Humfrees for making something available that no one else provides,

          Tricky, but not impossible

          By Yo Mama

          from Sheboygan, WI

          Comments about Humfrees Rack Isolation Tabs:

          Installation is tough, but one suggestion I have (after mounting almost a dozen units) is to cut just a hair off the piece that sits between the rackmount gear and the rack rail. I cut the side with 3 edges, at the corners so it becomes square. Snipping that little bit off means that it wont push against the side of your power amp or rack gear when you're trying to place that hole over the rail threads. This will save you a LOT of time trying to get that rack screw lined up perfectly!

          GREAT AND CRAP AT THE SAME TIME

          from South Windsor, CT

          Comments about Humfrees Rack Isolation Tabs:

          Theese do actually work. But they are a real pain to install. Oh well. And If you have a QSE PLX series power amp they dont work with those due to the shape of the amp. Hey they are cheap as hell. What do you want?
