AC / DC ?!

Post by rjgolding » Fri May 12, 2017 7:22 am

please excuse my ignorance, I'm very new to the pedal world!

I'm looking to create a 'standard' small board with the usual suspects, tuner (polytune2), wah (dimebag crybaby from hell), overdrive (thunderive) etc.

I was thinking of purchasing the ISO 5 to power this all but when I looked at jim Dunlop wahs they require AC... am I correct in thinking the ISO only provides DC and therefore will not power wahs?!

any help would be appreciated!

Many thanks,

Welcome to the pedal world!!

All Dunlop wah pedals take DC power, including your Dimebag Signature Cry Baby, and can be powered from any 9V output on an ISO-5. The PolyTune2 and Thunderdrive can each also be powered from any 9V ouptut on the ISO-5.

I hope that helps!
