Guitar/Bass Power Supplies VoodooLab Pedal Power 2 Plus 8x9VDC
Used by top touring and recording musicians everywhere, the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus is the industry standard power supply for all battery-operated guitar effects. With eight 9V completely isolated, regulated, and highly filtered outputs, Pedal Power 2 Plus will make your pedals sound consistently at their best. A custom designed, ultra-low noise toroidal transformer delivers quiet operation, free of hum and noise.
Features two outputs that can be switched to power Line 6 modelling pedals, and two outputs with variable voltage "sag" to emulate dying carbon batteries for vintage sounds in your wah, overdrive or fuzz. Plus, with its isolated outputs, you can combine them to create 18V. Pedal Power 2 Plus is hand made in the USA and comes complete with cables, detachable AC power cord.
Isolated outputs quarantees no hum creating ground loops or noise generating interaction between pedals. Without a "common ground", the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus will power both negative and positive power supplied effects pedals without difficulty. Outputs of the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 are short circuit protected, so a short in a power cable running to the pedal, or a malfunctioning pedal will not cause the other pedals to stop working. The Pedal Power 2 will temporarily turn off the power only to the pedal with a problem.
The Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus powers both types of Boss pedals, a switch on the bottom of the Pedal Power 2 selects either 9-volt PSA or higher voltage ACA type power supplies voltage, and 2 special power outlets designed to power Line 6 digital modelling pedals and Tone Core pedals, and 2 adjuatable voltage power outlets used to simulate power line "sag" of batteries running out of power for raunchier distortion from various effects pedals. The Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus Power Supply is a must for any musician with more than a few effects pedals. An AC jack in the back of the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 handles an external power supply. The Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 features a toroidal power supply transformer which minimizes the stray field that can cause hum and noise.
The defining feature of an isolated power supply is that each power output is completely indepedent and electronically isolated from the other outputs. The advantages of an isolated power supply include reduction in noise and more consistent, stable power.
9/12V (x4) – Standard 9V and 12V Boss ACA
With each one of these four outputs delivering 100mA, you can easily power any 9V battery-operated pedals. Boss pedals that specify the PSA adapter operate at 9V like most other pedals. Boss pedals that require the ACA adapter operate at 12V which can be selected via switches underneath the Pedal Power 2 Plus. Any one of these outputs can be individually selected to run at 9V or 12V.
9V (x2) – High Current 9V and Line 6 Modelers
These two outputs each deliver 250mA allowing you run high current draw effects like the Boss DD-20 Giga Delay or Line 6 DL4 Delay Modeler. Via switches underneath the Pedal Power 2 Plus, these two outputs can be separately configured for regulated (Boss Twin Pedals) or unregulated (Line 6 Modelers) power allowing you to run both units if so desired. These outputs can also power any standard 9V effects as well.
9V (x2) – Standard 9V With Battery Sag Control
These outputs each have an available 100mA of power, but also allow you to SAG the voltage from roughly 4V to 9V. This feature can be enabled via the bottom panel switches. The SAG control is mostly useful for transistor-based fuzz, octavia, and distortion circuits, as most modern opamp designs are minimally affected by variations in supply voltage. We recommend turning SAG off if you’re going to run digital pedals like delay, chorus, and reverb.
18V/24V – Using Custom Cables
All of the outputs on the Pedal Power 2 Plus (and the original Pedal Power) are completely isolated allowing you to create different voltages. You can run effects like the current MXR Flanger by combining two 9V outputs to create a single 18V supply. By switching two outputs into 12V ACA mode, you can join them together to create a 24V output for powering numerous Electro-Harmonix stompboxes including the Deluxe Memory Man.
