surfybear metal and pp2+

Can I power a Surfybear Metal reverb pedal with my PP2+?

The Surfybear pedal comes with a 12v 1000ma centre positive power supply but apparently the pedal only needs 500ma.

Can I get 500ma at 12v from output 5&6 if I use a current doubling cable?...it says in the manual that each channel delivers 250ma.

P.s. I have been running an Effectrode compressor by doubling the current in outputs 5&6 and it says it is 12v 600ma. So in theory this should work right?

cheers

Hi there,
For the centre positive you’ll need the special cable found here

Or modify one yourself.

I’d try 5 or 6 with the dip switch away and see if it powers both the Surfybear and Effectrode with just 1 port, if it doesn’t it will just cut out. If it does cut out, try 2 of the ports 1-4 on the Effector and port 5 and 6 for the Surfybear.

See how you go

Cheers
