Small electric shocks from guitar strings

Notapor ClintBarton » 04 Jul 2018 11:14

Hi,

I have a small studio and have recently moved it from the UK to Spain. I have been using it in Spain for the last month or so with no problem. Today, when I plug in any of my three electric guitars into my Focusrite 6i6 interface I am getting a small, but noticeable and unpleasant electric shock when I first touch the strings or any other metal part of any of the guitars. I have had the three guitars for years, the Focusrite for ages too, I have not introduced anything new electrical into the house today.
Can anyone suggest what could be causing this please?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

Check the installation making sure it has an effective grounding. If you use plug adapters, extension cords, etc. it´s possible to lose that connection.

Todavía hay una opción más divertida :manifiesto:

Hi, Clint and welcome to the forum.

I have the same problem at home and after some investigation a few month ago, I found the problem, the old 220V/single-phase (live+neutral) electric power from the wall outlet has changed to some kind of double-phase (live+live), the advantage is that you can get 120V from any live to ground and 220V from live to live but you have to deal with random 'electric kisses' if your body and equipment are not insulated from ground.

I'm not a technician and you should ask to one but at the moment the best solution I've found is to forget to play guitar barefoot and to use a good insulation carpet in the room I have my amps and guitars.

Hope it helps you, regards.
