Help with Power :)

Post by Twostep376 » Fri Mar 24, 2017 1:14 pm

I have three pedals that are going to require some assistance (I don't want to harm. Any of these expensive tools!)

- radial tonebone Pz preamp
- Ehx memory man deluxe 1100-TT
- hamstead soundworks signature tremolo


Can it be done? :)

I have PP2+

The Radial PZ-Pre will need to still use its supplied adapter, but you can plug this in using the Courtesy Outlet on the back of the Pedal Power 2+.

The Memory Man Deluxe Memory Man 1100-TT can be powered from output 5 or 6 on a Pedal Power 2+ with the corresponding DIP switch set to Normal.

The Signature Analogue Tremolo can be powered from output 5 or 6 on a Pedal Power 2+ wiht the corresponding DIP switch set away from Normal.

I hope that helps!

Thanks! To clarify, the following is from hamstead regarding the trem:
You need 300mA for the initial power surge. Although the pedal only needs 180mA to run, it definitely needs 300mA when switching on.
From hamstead website :
Power Requirement: 9V to 18V DC 300mA (Centre Negative)
So... The away from normal can supply 300ma?

Not only will the Pedal Power be fine to provide the startup spike, it will goose the Voltage up a bit to around 12V.

Good Luck!
