Output splitter with a BigShot ABY/wont power the other Pedal

Post by tomt6257 » Wed Sep 18, 2019 3:03 pm

Hi
Using a PP2+
I am trying to use other pedals (<100ma) with a an output splitter cable and a BigShot ABY switch (which only draws current to power the LEDS). The other pedals will not power. I have replaced the splitter and the the straight cables.
Anyone have experience with the BigShot and sharing an output?

Thanks

To work properly each pedal on the Output Splitter Adapter must connect with the audio ground).Typically, pedals which use power only for their LED(s), do not connect to audio ground and therefore cannot be used on the splitter.

Try another pair of pedals (excluding the ABY).

Any better?
