Hi John, one more real important question. I forgot to mention that the Effectrode PC-2A connector has a Center Positive 2.1mm
The Pedal Power 2+ comes with one reverse polarity cable (red barrel), but it is documented as a 2.5mm
barrel connector. Why the heck is this a 2.5
mm barrel when all the other cable barrels are 2.1mm? Visually, I can't really tell the difference in size with my eyes. So I'm confused about that.
Is it possible to get a reverse polarity 2.1mm connector cable for this, and how do I get one? (part no, etc.)
Also, can you clarify which end of the cable (red?) would go into the pedal side (Center Positive 2.1mm), and which end would go to the power supply current doubler cable endpoint?
I look forward to your advice on this. Thanks for your help .....
Hi John, one more question here on recommended usage and current doubling.
I have a tube-based compressor (Effectrode PC-2A), that comes with its own power adapter, but it would be much more convenient to just get the power from the pedal power 2+ supply (and not use the adapter at all).
Its power requirements are documented as: 12VDC @ 350mA.
So I assume what I would need to do is get a current doubler cable, and then use outputs 5 & 6 together, with the switches set away from the normal position (for outputs 5, 6). If I understand correctly, doing this will then provide 12 volts and 400mA of current - which would be considered safe and be the advised, correct procedure for using this pedal, having that power requirement. 12VDC @ 350mA.
Can you reply back and confirm that what I posted (above) is the correct usage for this pedal? or if not......then set me straight on what I should do for this?
I want to make sure that I don't damage anything.
You got it! Right on!
