Boss DD-500 – Boss adapter

JHS Andy Timmons overdrive – 9 or 18 volts

A Pedal Power 4x4 would do all this with maybe an Output Splitter Adapter or two, or a Pedal Power Mondo would power all this with some room to spare in case you were to add something like an overdrive later ;)

The Cali 76 Compact Deluxe actually draws about 100mA and can be powered from 9 to 18V. So you have three choices, any 9V output, any 12V output, or with a Voltage Doubler Adapter connected to any two 9V outputs. the same is true for the Rocket "The AT".
The H9 can be powered directly from our 12V 400mA output. This has been proven to work without issue.
The DD-500 can be powered from any higher current 9V output. So any of our 9V 400mA outputs or from output 5 or 6 with the corresponding DIP switch set to Normal on the Mondo.
The ES-8 can be powered from any of our 9V 400mA outputs.

The rest of your pedals can each be powered from any 9V output.

I hope that helps!

Hi John,

Thank you for the information. You know I already have a PP2+ and I will add a 4x4. Then I will have 16 outputs for my ever growing pedalboard.

Regarding the Eventide H9. It appears I will have to use a cable with Center Positive. Is that correct?

Happy 4th of July.

Right on!

The H9 will use one of the included cables that has one Red end. It is the proper polarity, and the proper size to fit the Eventide power jack.

Good Luck!
