1 Rockabilly_Nick 4 months ago So yesterday I was up in my muggy office/music room, bare-footin' standing on a rug and I had my 6120 plugged into my blues jr all ready to rock. Then I grabbed my mic in my right hand and plugged it into this old tube portable record player which I usually use for vocals when just messing around. I've used this set up many times with no issues. But last night something strange and sorta frightening happened, my left hand, where I was holding the neck and muting the strings felt a sudden surge of electricity. I hadn't even turned the record player on yet , I just plugged in the mic and was going to attach it to the mic stand. Anyways, I dropped the mic and decided I'd just play some instrumental stuff. So my guess is there were a few variables that led to this issue. No 1, I'm using an old probably sketchy tube record player for vocals (although it is 3 prong). Possibly my outlet ground is not working? Or the ground in the player itself is not working? No 2, the humidity, my sweat, and the fact I was barefoot (though standing on a rug) exacerbated an issue that already existed that I hadn't noticed til last night? No 3, my amp isn't properly grounded? It should be as I took it apart to do the Bill M basic mods and put it back together and attached the ground. No 4, maybe my guitar isn't grounded? Although I used a multimeter and touched the strings and the output jack and got a steady tone so I don't think that is the issue. Anyways, just curious if anybody has any thoughts. I probably won't be using this setup in this fashion anymore. I've heard all the horror stories about musicians getting electrocuted by improper wiring/grounding between the pa and the guitar amp.
