Hi, I have the following 8 pedals and I would appreciate your advice on how best to connect them to the Power Power plus.

1) Boss TU 3
2) Ibanez Tube Screamer
3) Boss Distortion
4) Fuzz face mini
5) MXP phaser 90
6) Deluxe memory man
7) Boss Digital Delay
8) Strymon Flint

Can I use a splitter to connect the Boss TU-3 and Ibanez Tube Screamer? What is the best way to power the Deluxe Memory Man?

Thanks,
Jon

The TU-3, Tube Screamer, Fuzzface Mini, Phase 90, and probably both the Boss Distortion and Delay can each be powered from any output with the corresponding DIP Switch set to Normal. Also, any of these pedals can be powered from the power output on the TU-3. Just to be certain, what are the model numbers for the two Boss pedals?

The Flint can be powered from output 5 or 6 with the corresponding DIP Switch set to Normal.

Do you have the 9V or 24V Deluxe Memory Man? If it is the 24V version then you will need a 2.5mm Voltage Doubling Cable to combine any two of outputs 1-4 with their corresponding DIP switches set away from Normal.

I hope that helps!

Hi, the Boss pedals are DS1X and DD-7. The Memory man is 24V. So to be clear: I use two inputs from 1-4 with the cable for the memory man, then use a splitter cable from 3 to power the TU-3 and Tube Screamer (or one of the boss pedals)?

Flint goes into 5 or 6. The other pedals could go into any of the other inputs. So it would look something like

Inputs 1-2 - Memory Man with Cable
Input 3 - splitter cable powering TU-3 and Ibanez
Input 4 - Boss DS1X
Input 5 - Strymon Flint
Input 6 - Boss DD-7
Input 7 - Fuzz face mini
Input 8 - Phase 90

Thanks a lot for your help!

That will work fine! Just make sure the outputs you use for the 24V Deluxe Memory Man have their DIP Switches set away from Normal. All the other outputs will have the switches set to Normal.

You can certainly use the Output Splitter Adapter but you don't don't actually need it with the TU-3 because the TU-3 has a power output jack that basically accomplishes the same thing. You can use one of the included all black barrel cables to go from the power output on the TU-3 to the Tube Screamer power input.

Good Luck!

Ok, many thanks! One last question: If I want to add one or two more pedals, can I use a splitter cable to power two Boss pedals with any of the inputs or do they have to be powered individually?

Thanks!

You can combine any combination of your pedals excluding the Deluxe Memory Man and Flint. If you have the DD-7 as one of the paired pedals you may want to use Output 5 or 6 (with the corresponding DIP Switch set to Normal) for the higher current capability.

Good Luck!
