The GigRig Humdinger

Split your signal, correct phase & kill hum.

Great for DI, reamping, wet/dry and plenty more besides.

The HumDinger was designed to eliminate earth loops in audio equipment by isolating the second output with a high quality audio transformer. Earth loops are a common complaint. As soon as the ground on your gear has more than one main route to earth, you have the potential for an earth loop. The best and safest way to get rid of an earth loop is to isolate the ground that is causing the hum. 

Using the HumDinger to get rid of earth loops is easy. If you use 2 amps all you need to do is stick the HumDinger at the end of your effects chain. Your main (buffered) output goes to one amp and the isolated output goes to the other. Your earth is consistent through the main output but isolated through the isolated output. 

Using a mains powered effects pedal, simply place the HumDinger in the chain after the mains powered effect. The Mains powered effect is your main ground and the ground from the amp is isolated.

    As others have said, I bought this for Isolated output for a dry out in a wet/dry rig that I am putting together now. Always wanted too and thanks to Dan and Mike sharing in detail how they do theirs, I was motivated to do mine as well. This unit is small and made really well. It does exactly as they said it would. Thank you.

    Exactly as advertised

    Isolated output for a dry out in a wet/dry rig works as exactly Dan and Pete described (when they made me need the extravagance of a wet/dry multi-amp rig in the first place). So, well done you bastards.

    The Humdinger is indispensable for my two-amp rig. The buffer is clear, the footprint easily fits on my boards, and the phase switch is brilliant. I am able to achieve a wider profile of textures with no loss in signal quality or EQ.

    The humdinger is the tool to use for my wet dry rig with the Gigrig G2. The isolated output, and phase switch are the perfect essentials for this kind of set up. Very happy with this purchase.

    Great unit! I play through lots of vintage blackface fender amps that have separate channels which I like to set up differently and use an A/B switch switch back and forth between them. The problem with doing this is that it almost always creates a ground loop. Most of the time lifting the ground of one amp will fix this but it’s not a safe practice. This accomplished the same thing but I’m a safe and quite way. Absolutely killer solution.

    A must have if you play with two amps

    This thing is amazing.
    It’s small and looks great, so it fits like magic on my pedalbord. I can’t imagine a better option for getting rid of earth loop hum and phase issues.
    As a plus the communication was great and they answered all my questions really fast.
    Thanks a lot GigRig!
