Ah, a fellow rocker! Yeah, our old sound man was a journeyman electrician,
and he always surreptitiously checked out the wiring wherever we played, and
if necessary, rewired sockets to spec (without telling management). Nothing
more annoying than a ground loop that won't go away, and I'll never forget
the night I almost got fried between my mike and keyboard chassis. And to
think, all I needed was an STL adapter <g>.
