using PP2

and i've run out of slots,

but this is the only product i am able to get my hands on that has a daisy chain:

http://www.thomann.de/se/boss_pcs20a_st ... skabel.htm

its a boss pcs20a pararell. i know boss uses different power whatever so:

will there be problems with using it to multi up other 9v pedals, or using the other adaptors for like ibanez tubescreamer with this daisy chain? will it convert or otherwise wierd up the current, or not carry it properly?

wouldn't want my pedals to go up in smoke when i turn on,

thanks a lot for any advice!

You can use a daisy chain cable from any of the outputs but you must mind the current limit for the output used. Also, the potential for ground loops comes right back as the ground will now be common to all the devices on the daisy chain cable. We make a Split output Y cable for powering two devices from one outlet with one side ground lifted for this reason. Good Luck!

Hello.

Could you please direct me to a link to purchase this item? I can't find a "Split Output Y cable" on the Voodoo Lab site or any distributor's sites. Google didn't give me much but this post and another post of yours mentioning the same cable.

Thank you!

All cables for the Pedal Power power supplies are available by calling us or sending an email to info@voodoolab.com. We do not list every custom option because there are simply too many of them.

We also now have a short Split Output Adapter cable that connects to the Pedal Power and has two cable mounted jacks so you can use any of the Pedal Power cables from the Split output Adapter to your different pedals. The Split Output Adapter has a white stripe on the side that is ground lifted for easy identification. These are great if you do not want to have a custom cable made or if your connection needs are likely going to change.
