Can you plug pedal power AC into pedal power 2 plus?

Post by keithkenny » Wed Sep 23, 2009 2:11 pm

I am interested purchasing both the Pedal Power AC and Pedal Power 2 Plus and have a few questions…

I’d like to use the Pedal Power AC to power:
-Digitech Whammy Pedal
-and a custom acoustic guitar preamp called the “amulet system” wich requires 12VAC

I’d like to use the Pedal Power 2 Plus to power:
-Boss Chromatic Tuner TU-2
-Ibanez Tube Screamer
-Boss Blues Driver
-Line 6 DL4
-Cry Baby Wah Pedal
-I’d also like to power another acoustic guitar preamp called the “Sunrise” which requires two 9volt batteries which runs at +9V / -9V (DC). Is there a special cable for this?

Can I plug the Pedal Power AC into the Pedal Power 2 Plus? This way I will only have to plug one chord into the wall at a gig.

Thanks for the help

Yes, you can use the Courtesy Outlet from one Pedal Power to power the other one. It does not matter which one is first.

For the Sunrise likely the easiest scenario would be to use two Pedal Power 2+ outputs, each with battery snap cables.

Thanks John,
I emailed the manufacturer of the Sunrise Preamp and he said it wouldn't work because of the bipolar power supplies requiring +9 and -9 volts dc.

I think Power Pedal Versa might be worth the wait... It will have everything i need. Any expected release date?

If the Sunrise will run using two 9V batteries then it will work with any two 9VDC outputs from a Pedal Power, Pedal Power 2, Pedal Power 2+, Pedal Power ISO5, or Pedal Power Versa. The outputs are isolated from each other so it would be no different than with batteries.

It is daisy chain or common ground type power supplies that will not power a circuit that employs a bi-polar design.

That's what I figured! I'll be sure to try. Any word on the Pedal Power Versa Release Date?!?!?!?!
