    Default Power conditioner for Fender twin reverb

    Can anybody recommend a power conditioner for my Fender twin reverb amp. It is an all tube guitar amp and the problem is the amount of white noise that comes out of it when I plug it in at home. At other places it is very quiet. There are a ton of power conditioners out there and I am hoping to get one under $200.
    Thanks

    I'm just going to throw this out there and maybe some musicians can chime in on better, newer recommendations. I would recommend one of the Furman pro audio rackmount units for your amp. They've had various models over the years, I've used one(Furman PL-Plus) in my office system for at least 15 years, never had a problem with it.

    Thanks Polkie! I was considering a furman. This amp sure is sensitive to signals coming through the outlet.

    I have to ask how old is your amp, any previous owners? I've had friends over the years that use Fender tube amps(most from the late 60's blackface and on to the silver face 70's amps. Those old amps can make a number of noises from old caps,tubes, solder joints, dirty connections etc. lol.

    Thanks...it is a '65 twin reverb reissue. It is pretty new. When the sound is up my strat sings! The sound is AMAZING! and POWERFUL! problem is in my living room and when it is quiet the white noise is pretty loud. I took it back to where I purchased it and there it was still audible but barely. One of the guys there is a long time player of fender amps and said that that amount of white noise was normal. I'm used to solid state amps that are dead quiet.

    Update:
    took it back to the store again, they swapped it out for a new one aaaaannnnnnddddd....MAGIC!! Took it back home and no more white noise!!! The conditioner did not make a difference in the white noise but I am still glad I have it. Nice protection for this amp.
    Gotta say it is nice listening to reproduced music but listening to it live is very cool. Amazing to me that the signal to noise ratio in amps that produce music is nowhere close to the amps that reproduce music.

    Recorded music is better than no music, but when you're starting with recorded music as your source, you're already extremely limited in what you're going to experience compared to live. No way around it. This is why I don't invest a ton of money in reproducing audio. A lot more than your average consumer, but nowhere near what some people pay.

    Perhaps if you invested more in your home audio gear you'd realize that one can get pretty damn close to a live performance.

    Not turning this into a debate. There's much more to a live performance than just what you hear.

    I have owned a original 65 Twin Reverb and a reissue. The New Reissue I feel was better then the original. I never had any issues with mine and noise.
    Sounds like you had a bad one. A conditioner can only clear up noise IF it's coming from the outlet.

    I had a 1970 Fender Strat in off white with a Rosewood fret board , It was my first guitar and I sold it. Kinda wish I had it back.

    Thanks Mantis!
    just saw your post 2006 about your purchase of Fender's evil twin.
    And I feel your pain about your 1970 strat...I wish I had it too! My current strat is a 1994 American.
    My new TRRI sounds AWESOME!! Just wish i had more time to play.
