I’ve just had a new one on me on this line…

An amount of kit is left set up at church, including a jack cable plugged into a DI/modeller

Someone, and we don’t know who, had clearly seen the unplugged cable end and connected it to the nearest socket – the parallel connected jack socket on the nearest foldback wedge…

Nearest – i.e. with muchos guitar signal fed back into it.

I’m presuming the fact that there were two speakers plugged in to draw the current, and that the DI input is high impedance, is what saved the DI (and Stagebox) from serious damage.

There will be words going out “If you don’t know what you’re doing – just leave it!”
