What Voodoo power cable should I buy?

Post by peniche7 » Thu Sep 10, 2015 11:33 am

HI,

I own a SKB stage 5 pedal board and recently bought an EH Epitome.

The Epitome demands 9V 185mA, but the stage 5 power outputs only gives 9V 100mA at each output.

Can I buy a Voodoo Lab Output Splitter Adapter PPAV and plug a 9V 100mA to each female of the cable from the SKB pedalboard PSU and plug the male to the Epitome?

Will this work and give me 9V 200mA or it will give me 18V 200mA to the Epitome? Will this damage the Epitome?

Thanks

The Output Splitter will not work as a Current Doubler since one of its leads is ground lifted. We don't have a cable that will work correctly with the SKB power supply for this application.

I hope that helps!
