If my system is properly wired, and over the last 60 years there have been
some that were wired by idiots, but where I either did it, or saw to it
that it was done right, anybody using a ground lifter gets invited off the
stage. But you'd be totally blown away by the condition of some of the
equipment, one bass players amp was so bad that it set my pocket field
sniffer off from 6" away. Walking over to the axe itself I got the same
bleeep out of it. Told him to fix it, he didn't know how, but I had 15
minutes to spare & cobbled up an xlr to tip-ring-shell cable & plugged his
axe direct to a mic channel on our board. He squawked he couldn't hear & I
said thats how it is, I'm not gonna let your pissy amp kill somebody on my
stage. The mixer on duty that day was fairly good after I explained how to
do it for the axe & it didn't sound that bad once he'd put his fingers in

soap, ballot, jury, and ammo. Please use in that order."
