Can ISO-5 power these?

Post by Cajun Queen » Thu Jan 07, 2016 5:50 pm

Hi all. Very much a newbie to both pedals *and* power supplies.
Santa brought me these 4 pedals. Does ISO-5 look appropriate? Should I be looking at something else?

Diamond J-Drive -- (I think 12ma at 9VDC)
EHX Soul Food OD -- (I think 22ma at 9.6VDC)
EHX Holy Grail NEO Reverb (not Nano Reverb) -- (I think 75ma at 9.6VDC)
EHX Memory Toy (not BOY) Delay -- (I think???? 25ma)

This last EHX pedal has this unusual note in the documentation:
"Comes supplied with a 9 volt battery. WARNING: When using a power adaptor, use only a 96DC-200BI. Do not use any other adapters. Using other adapters, even those made by EHX, could harm the unit."

But that adapter that's mentioned is the exact same one that powers the first two EHX pedals, so I'm guessing/wondering that this comment in the documentation is overly cautious or perhaps outdated.

Any comments advice *much* apprec. :)

Right on Santa!!

The J-Drive, Soul Food, and Holy Grail NEO can each be powered from any 9V output on an ISO-5.
The Memory Toy should be powered from the High Current 9V output on an ISO-5.

I hope that helps!
