Which Power Supplky Do I Need?

Post by bjorn.toulouse » Wed Sep 13, 2017 5:50 am

My board currently consists of:
Danelectro French Toast
Way Huge Swollen Pickle
Boss BF-2 Flanger
MXR Carbon Copy
Korg SDD-3000
Boss RE-20 Space Echo
Line 6 MM4

Which Pedal Power do I use?

P.S. I wouldn't mind room to grow :D

A Pedal Power 4x4 would just cover what you have, or a Pedal Power Mondo to give room to grow.

In either case, the SDD-3000 would need to use two of the High Current 9V outputs combined with our Current Doubler Adapter (the one with the Green end) in order to provide enough current.

The MM4 is your only other higher current pedal and it can be powered from any of the High Current 9V Outputs on 4x4 or Mondo, or from output 5 or 6 on the Mondo.

Each of the rest of your pedals can be powered form any of the 9V outputs on either supply.

I hope that helps!

thanks for that info...slight change to my board...now it is :

Way Huge Swollen Pickle

How would that play out with the 4x4?

So the Flashback is the new pedal, right? If it is the single button sized pedal then it should be able to be powered from any 9V output on a 4x4.

I hope that helps!

the update is that my gear got stolen, so I am building from scratch. will the 18v outlet on the ISO-5 power a Korg SDD-3000?

Oh No! That is terrible news!

The SDD-3000 says it requires 9V @ 600mA... that says it cannot be powered from any output on an ISO-5.
A Pedal Power Digital or Pedal Power 4x4 would be able to power the SDD-3000 any two 9V High Current Outputs combined with our Current Doubler Adapter (the one with the Green end).

I hope that helps, and I hope somehow your lost gear can be recovered!
