Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 is a universal power supply for all battery-operated
guitar pedal effects. New features include two outputs that will power Line
6 modeling pedals and two outputs that can have a variable voltage "sag"
to emulate dying carbon batteries. Like the original Pedal Power, each of
its eight outputs are completely isolated, short circuit protected, regulated
and highly filtered. The Pedal Power 2 comes complete with cables, detachable
AC power cord, is hand made in the U.S.A. and carries a 5-year warranty.
wrestled with various store-bought and custom-made power supplies over
the years, but this was the first time I was able to connect everything
in minutes and get great results without hum or profanity
output is completely isolated. This means that you won't have any ground
loops or interaction between pedals that can cause hum and noise. It also
means that unlike other "common ground" power supplies, you can
run effects that have both negative and positive grounds without difficulty.
are two types of Boss pedal effects, which specify either PSA or ACA type
power supplies. Boss pedals specifying the PSA type adapter operate at 9V
like most other pedals. Boss pedals which specify the ACA type adapter operate
at a higher voltage.
Voodoo Lab Pedal Power is the only universal power supply available which
will power any type of Boss pedal effect. There is a selector switch for
each DC output on the bottom of the Pedal Power to select the correct voltage.
output on the Pedal Power is short-circuit protected. This means that if
you have a short in a power cable, or one of your pedals malfunctions, the
Pedal Power will temporarily turn off the power to that pedal. All other
outputs will continue to function normally and the Pedal Power is not damaged.
transformers create an electric field that can cause hum and noise in your
effects. Some effects, such as wahs, are particularly susceptible to this.
A toroidal transformer has a specially designed core that greatly reduces
this electric field. The Pedal Power uses this type of power transformer
so that your pedal board is quiet.
