Acronym for Volt Ohm Meter. If non-analog, as is virtually every meter sold today, also known as a DMM, Digital Multi Meter. Fluke is the best known manufacturer, other brands may perform satisfactorily and be less expensive. For general stage use, I like this model, as it fits in one's pocket and costs $36.00. Meters can be found for as little as $3.99.
Safety notice: When operating these meters, the user may be exposed to dangerous and deadly electrical current. Prior to using, read all instructions and cautions. Do not use without proper supervision and training.
