Question for those powering their QC with Cioks, did it solve weird grounding issues?
I’m playing with headphones. I experienced a significant reduction in noise once I kept the machine plugged into a computer, but the QC itself is still plugged into the wall via the manufacturer wall wart.
I’m starting to suspect that there is still a weird grounding problem because I’m getting static buildup on the plastic pickguard on my Tele. I can’t touch it without crackles and pops. The wiring has been inspected. The guitar is grounded within itself properly, and I have the same problem on another Tele. If I put a metal pickguard on either of them, I get tone suck on each, which shouldn’t be happening. It was suggested to me that this could be a capacitance issue caused by weird grounding. Since the guitars have been confirmed as problem free, I’m wondering if the issue is coming from the QC.
