What power supply do I need for my pedal board?

Most pedals require 9v DC power and have a very low current requirement but pedals to watch out for include powerful digital pedals like the Strymon or Eventide pedals.

How many amps does a guitar pedal use?

The range can be from as low as 20mA to 1000mA, or 1A. The most important factor here is to not underpower a pedal with too few milliamps.

How many watts does a guitar pedal use?

For example, your guitar pedal requires 9v. Your guitar head produces 100w while the PA speaker it runs into has an 8Ω input. If you mismatch certain equipment, it could have a detrimental effect on tone and even damage your precious rig.

Can you power a 9V pedal with 12V?

You can’t use a 12V adapter to power a 9V guitar pedal. A pedal that only handles 9V can be destroyed by using a 12V adapter. It’s possible for a power supply to ruin your pedal even if you get the voltage right.

Can I power A 9V pedal with 18v?

NO! YOU CAN’T DO THIS WITH MOST 9V PEDALS! Some pedals are designed to accept 9-18v, and it will say on the pedal or in the manual. But most 9v pedals are not designed to handle voltages higher than 9v.

Can daisy chaining damage pedals?

Daisy chains will not harm your pedals.

Should I unplug pedals when not playing?

Guitar pedals should not be left plugged in. You expose your pedals to electric current surges, possible heat issues, battery drain, humidity, and a lot of dust. If you want to preserve the life of your guitar pedals, then you should unplug them when not in use.

How much power do you get from a pedalboard?

Each output puts out up to 120mA, and you can also use two of the outputs to power an 18V pedal – or even power five pedals from one output – with a max of 24mA each. There’s also switchable 115V/230V operation for international use.

Is the power grid 10 a backup pedalboard?

Arguably the most unique feature of the Power Grid 10 is the design of its top side; the sleek top surface can actually double as a ‘backup’ pedalboard where you can store spare pedals or the one that you wouldn’t normally be able to fit on your main pedalboard.

What’s the big deal about isolated outputs on pedalboard?

But what’s the big deal about isolated outputs? In essence, having isolated outputs on a pedalboard power supply gives each pedal its own individual power source, ensuring the current delivered to a guitar pedal is consistent.

What kind of power does Voodoo Lab pedals use?

The Voodoo Lab Pedal Power boasts four 9V isolated 400mA outputs designed for high-current, DSP-based pedals. Two of the outputs also feature a 12V option. Other features include linear regulation and a toroidal transformer, switchable voltage and a temperature-controlled fan.
