I'm getting shocked touching the mic while holding the strings. Read all the advise I can find about why and I have tracked it to something in the pedal board. (That is, I get it from different PAs, in different buildings with different guitars and main cables, etc. Proved that if I plug directly into the amp and skip the board altogether then the shock goes away.)Problem is that I can't break the pedal board down at a gig and then go through all the pieces until I find it, so I'm trying to do it at home with volt meter since I don't have a PA at home.I'm expecting to see a current between the strings and the wall ground outlet - but I'm not! Can anyone please tell me how I should use the voltmeter to see the problem so I can then go through the rig until I eliminate it?Thanks!
