Powering Boss MS3

Post by mbman » Thu Jan 18, 2018 10:21 am

Can I use my PP2+ to power a Boss MS3 and a Shure GLXD receiver?

TIA
BC Rich PRS and Jackson guitars
Diezel Koch Marshall and VoX amps
Rocktron Lexicon and Boss effects

The MS-3 draws close to 300mA so it will need a Current Doubler Adapter (the one with the Green end) connected to Output 5 or 6 and any other output with both corresponding DIP Switches set to Normal.

The GLXD can be powered from output 5 or 6 and the corresponding DIP switch can actually be set either direction.

I hope that helps!

Hi John, I also have an MS-3, I'm using a pedal power Mondo. Would I be able to power the MS-3 with one of the 9V 400Ma outs? Thanks

No problem to use a single 9V/400mA Output for powering the MS-3.

Good Luck!
