SnufferStick High Voltage Discharge Stick

About This Item

Safely discharge high voltage when working on amps
Clip the SnufferStick to the chassis for ground, and then hold the tip to your filter caps to discharge dangerous high voltage present when you turn off your amp.

Included are two 56K, 2-watt resistors in series with the nose probe and ground wire (112K total). The SnufferStick will safely discharge the high voltage supply within three to five seconds. We highly recommend using a meter to measure the voltage while you have the discharge stick in place. Only remove the stick when the voltage is completely drained.

Don't work on an amp without a discharge stick!

Did what it said!

i just finished a Fromel mod of my Fender Deluxe reissue and the first thing they say is to discharge the filter capacitors so you don't die! Point taken!
Followed the instructions, used the stick to discharge the capacitors and did the mod with no problem. (kept one hand in my pocket or wearing a glove just in case!)
Simple and easy and highly recommended if you're going to be working on amps....better safe than sorry!
Highly recommended!

Amp builder's necessity

I finally got tired of breaking my home-made snuffer; I was depending on the leads of a wirewound resistor and they kept breaking. So...
Finally bit the bullet and bought a ready made snuffer. The whole assembly looks solid and, after using it repeatedly, it works so much better than my home-built.My only beef is the price but saving my sorry body from a possibly lethal shock should not be dependent on a particular price point.
Recommend!

Great Product and Safe to Use

I need to discharge the caps on my amps when I'm working on them and this tool works perfectly. I could have tried making something but I wanted a well insulated safe tool that was easy to use and the Snuffer Stick completely met my expectations. The caps discharge quickly and the tool is well designed. Buy one and be safe!

I used this to discharge the caps on my 1973 Vibro Champ and it made the task a breeze. If you're doing any kind of work, efficiency is important, and this SnufferStick helps do that and makes amp work more fun to do.

Works well

I was going to build one of these, but after sourcing the parts, it was more cost effective to purchase this from Stewmac. Works perfectly to drain the high voltage caps. You NEED one of these if you are going to do maintenance on your own amp.

Exactly as advertised. 112 Kilo Ohm of protection. Quickly and safely discharges amplifier capacitors before your fingers do. And, trust me . . . capacitors are more than happy to dump their load of deadly high voltage into a human body.
