18v power supplies

Post by fazzybear » Thu May 07, 2009 12:33 pm


I hope you can help me with the following: Can you run three 18v supplies off of the Pedal Power 2 Plus.

I have three Fulltone pedals, GT-500, Fat-Boost 2 and OCD which i want to run at 18v each. I sometimes use the OCD with the Fat-Boost 2 at the same time, would this be a problem.

I noticed you also supply the voltage doubler cable (I think its code is PPY on your website), is this available in the UK?

No problem running 3 18V pedals. The PPY cable is just a Y cable that combines 2 outputs in series to get 18V or 24V. It is possible to combine outputs this way because Pedal Power outputs are all isolated. Of course you can use all of the pedals at the same time!

You can check with Sounds Great in Cheshire (http://www.soundsgreatmusic.com) or you can get cables directly from Voodoo Lab. We send cables via post in a padded envelope, it's not very expensive.
