Small and compact so it won't take up valuable space on your pedal board. Green LED indicates when it's engaged.

I play jazz guitar. One of my favorie guitars is a Gibson ES175 with one P90 single coil pickup. Love the tone but hate the 60HZ hum. I do not use any pedals and go for a really clean tone. I tried the ISP Decimator and the Boss NS-2 to rid the hum but being that they are noise gates they don't work well on pedal free guitar tone. They are more for getting rid of noisy pedal hum. The EH Hum Debugger works perfect. My P90 is now quiet as a church mouse with no effect on natural tone or sustain. I love it. My only complaint is it is made out of cheap looking steel and for the price you pay for it they could have put a nice coat of paint on it. It is a bit of a eye sore but it works fantastic. If you want clean and quiet single coil tone buy one !!!

Well it works. I tried it on a Rhodes piano, Clavinet, and guitar. It was remarkable on the Clavinet. It got rid of the nasty hum. Only one problem, I noticed one note in the higher range of the keyboard was very faint. Did the same thing with the Rhodes and it was the same note. Upon closely comparing the effect to bypass signal, there is a nasal quality to the sound over all. At certain higher notes there is almost a canceling effect. It does work, but for me I can't take the side effects. The tone is almost missing something when this pedal is on. When its bypassed, the signal becomes so much fuller and true. Some people may not notice, or care. For me, its not worth the trade off. Still Electro Harmonix did produce a very unique pedal. For certain situations it would be welcomed to get rid of the bloody hum. There is nothing out there that does what this pedal does.

      The pedal completely changes the tone. Sounds like you are playing with a bad echo kind of sound when using with overdrive pedals.

          The pedal does eliminate the hum but it also does change the tone of the guitar. I do not like the tone change. I will not use this pedal.

            I actually use 2 of these pedal. side by side and it is wonderful.
            note that those new curly light bulbs that people use. Make a terrible hum/buzz also. So get the pedal and also switch those curly bulbs back to regular bulbs.

            This thing doesn't do what it's advertised to do, it only kills a small amount of hum/noise even on strong and adds a really strange metallic, tunnel echo kind of sound to your overall tone...this pedal really is just awful!

              I've had trouble with hum and noise for a long time. Tried many different products but they either didn't work or compromised the sound so much they weren't worth using. I can stand some noise when playing out but for recording I want no noise and this devise did it. I've only had the unit for a short time so hopefully it will last.

                  I have a ground loop problem somewhere. The hum debiugger pulls the 60 cycle hum out of the system.

                    Works as advertised. My Les Paul Jr. is one of my favorite guitars, but I've always found the hum distracting in live situations. In a fit, I added a debugger to my pedalboard, and was able to play my Junior all night at a recent gig.
                    This is a great and effective product for eliminating single coil pickup hum.

                        This is a wonderful machine that does exactly what it says on the box! BUT!!!! The world outside the USA uses 220v electricity and it doesnt work with any transformer apart from the one in the box!!! So I now have a 220-110 step down transformer in my gear-chain which is a pain in the A55! Somebody please tell ElectroHarmonix that a world outside the USA actually DOES EXIST!!!!
