    I'd love to know what was defective on the original circuit board. I am surprised if it was defective that they didn't cover it under warranty.

    Even without watching videos I can confidently say wax potting doesnít impact 60 cycle hum.

    For a start, the railhammers are covered while the Duncanís are not. That cover is soldered to the baseplate and grounded as a shield.

    After that itís difficult to say what else could be contributing to the noise because there are too many unknowns- what wiring is in there, what signal path you have, and if proximity to any computers or dimmers on the same circuit are having an impact.

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

    Even a Humbucker isnít 100% silent. The Railhammers in the videos are definitely quieter than the Duncans, but the Duncanís arenít unusable by any means.
