Can only use a maximum of 5 pedals

Post by Tomv85 » Wed Jun 14, 2017 4:58 pm


Hopefully this is something quite straight forward. I can only seem to get a maximum of 5 pedals working. Just having more than 5 connected will not make the 6th work, i.e the other pedals don't even have to be turned on. The 6th pedal will light up but there will be not output. I've tried changing the pedals/power leads/cables but it doesn't make any difference. Pretty sure the pedals are all 9v, should in theory should be able to power 8? It's a pedal power 2 plus.

Pedal Power 2+ can absolutely have all eight outputs used at once. I would suspect that what you are seeing is because one or more of your pedals needs some special attention.

Can you list the pedals you are trying to power?
