The Voodoo Lab Power Pedal Supply 2 Plus, is an eight output power supply pedal for guitar pedalboards. It is designed to give guitar players with a lot of pedals on their board the necessary power to keep things alive when on stage or in the practice room.
It has Isolated outputs, short-circuit protection, and a toroidal transformer to cut down on excess noise. It weighs 2lbs and measures 3.4/6/1.75". It may be the solution to providing large pedalboards with the reliable power they need.
1100mA maximum output current
11 cables included
The Voodoo Lab 2 Plus pedal power supply offers a ton of power options for guitar players. Many guitarists have multiple pedals on the go at the same time. All of these pedals need to have sufficient power to keep them flowing while in use. Most pedals are multi-powered using either a 9V battery or an AC connector.
Batteries work well when they have a sufficient charge, but lose their juice and strength shortly after being engaged. AC power supplies offer a consistent and reliable amount of power to the pedals, so the signal doesn't fizzle out. The 2 Plus power supply by Voodoo Lab is a way to send the necessary power to the pedals.
It comes with eight outputs to plug your pedals into. This means that you can have up to 8 different pedals plugged into the power supply simultaneously. It cuts down on the need for extra power bars and extension cords on a crowded stage.
Each output is isolated from the rest. This means that the current sent by the outputs will not bleed or overlap with the others. They work individually from each other.
With short circuit protection, you don't need to worry about your pedals having a minor blow up that could render them useless in the event of a short in the building's breaker.
Another excellent feature is the toroidal transformer. Some pedals emit a hum or buzzing noise that bleeds into the speaker and causes a ruckus. The toroidal transformer works to curb this buzz and leaves your signal working cleanly and quietly, allowing the sound you want to come through.
It is small and compact, cutting down on the need for extra cables and wires. It weighs 2lbs and is just under 6/2". It should fit easily into your gig bag, or right into your pedalboard bag so you can take it to and from gigs easily with you.
It is made of strong and durable materials, which will ensure that it will last tour after tour.
The 2 Plus Power Supply comes with a variety of necessary cables to fit your pedals. It has six right angles AC power adapters as well as two straight barreled adapters. It also comes with specialized adaptors for Line 6 pedals, MXR or Electro Harmonix controllers, and a battery snap for pedals with no AC connector.
The Voodoo Lab 2 Plus will help eliminate the need to buy 9V batteries for your pedals continually and will give sufficient power consistently. It is reasonably priced and can be used for other low-powered devices that are not guitar related if necessary. It is a pretty handy little accessory that many guitar players could find useful.
- Not an absolute necessity
