Default Taylor hum

Picked up a Bose T8S mixer. Really like the format and the smaller footprint.
But...I now have a horrible hum that I cannot seem to find. If I touch anything in the system that is metal it reduces the noise, but does not eliminate it. Took out thr pedals, changed cords and so on. I had just replaced the pickup in the Taylor but it was fine through the old mixer.
Not real good at altering sound issues, if that is a clue. This is going to make me tear my hair out and I really have none to spare!
Using the Tylor es2, Bose T8S mixer, TC Helicon Play acoustic Live, Bose S1 speakers. My Ovation seems fine through the system, but my Taylor is unusable at this point.
Any clues or advice?

Check your household wiring. I had this issue with the ES2 going in to a powered speaker. It was fine powered from the kitchen where everything is grounded but not from the lounge, where it had a horrible mains hum.

So I basically got all the power sockets and lamp sockets grounded. Problem solved plus my apartment is safer...

Thanks for that. I will try that tonight
It never did this with the Yamaha mixer.
But...the Mic and pedals seem to work very well with the Bose mixer.
