new guy on the forum

Post by Blackguard » Tue Jul 03, 2018 4:51 am

Hello,

I just logged in and am not very familiar with all the content.

I want to power up my PedalBpard and hesitates between PP AC or PP 2+ (oher?)
Here are my stuff:

Wha - Dunlop Cry Baby
Whammy - Original WH1 (usually this one is source of issue - 1200ma?)
Delay - Boss DD2
Phaser - MXR Phase 90
Disto - Tube screamer TS9
Looper - RC2
Tuner - TU12H

Thanks for your help on the best settings

Best regards

Bertrand

As all your pedals require DC power, except for your older Whammy (which requires AC power), Pedal Power 2 Plus is a sensible choice.

It can power all your DC pedals (from its DC outputs) and you can power your Whammy from the (rear panel) AC courtesy outlet with its adapter/wall-wart.


Cheers!

Hi Ben,
Thanks for quick reply.
You mean I will be able tu plug the whammy original whammy adapter at the back of the pp2+?
(I’m not sure what wall wart means..)
Do I need an adapter for that? (I think i have an european power plug)

Thanks
B

Yes, power the Whammy from the AC courtesy outlet with its power adapter (ie. one of these: adapter/wall-wart).

The AC courtesy outlet will show the same power as that which powers the Pedal Power 2 Plus itself.

Thus a 220-240VAC model Pedal Power 2 Plus (powered with 220-240VAC mains power) will have 220-240VAC on the AC courtesy outlet.

And similarly, a 120VAC model (powered with 120VAC mains power) will show 120VAC on the AC courtesy outlet.

And...

To connect with the export model AC courtesy outlet use an appropriate type C14 cable/adapter.

We do not sell this type of cable/adapter but they are available online.
