Pedal Power,AC supply on the back, Can I plug my amp in it??

Post by CascadeDiver » Sun Mar 03, 2013 9:54 pm

I notice that there is an AC power supply on the back of some pedal power units. I was wondering if I might be able to plug my guitar amp in into the back of the unit or would that be too much of a load on it??

Thanks for the help

Not unless you are running a tiny little amp.

At 120 volts, the PP2+ only supports 200 watts through the courtesy outlet. That's approximately 1.6 amps.

You can look up the wattage on your amp to see how much it draws. It is most likely it won't stay under 200 watts or 1.6 amps.

Just don't do it.
