PLAY AS YOU PAY
The Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus Universal Power Supply is the ultimate solution for powering your pedalboard and other outboard FX processors! You'll enjoy clean, filtered power via 6 x 9VDC 100mA and 2 x 9VDC 250mA regulated sources -- and clean power means better sound.

The beauty of the Power 2 Plus: all of the power outputs on this baby are completely isolated from each other. This means that you'll encounter no tone loss or power drain between different devices. With a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus powering your pedalboard, you can know that your outboard FX are running their best and most balanced. Moreover, you'll know that your rig is safe from unexpected surges or any "dirty" power you might find out there.

3 Different Sections

You'll notice that the front panel of the Pedal Power 2 Plus is divided in ACA, L6, and SAG sections. The 4 outputs in the ACA section each deliver 100mA appropriate for 9V battery-operated pedals. These can also power Boss pedals that require the ACA adapter and operate at 12V. Just flip the switch on the bottom of the Power 2 Plus to change from 9V to 12V on any output!

The "L6" section refers to Line 6 units, and delivers the 250mA that will allow you to run devices like the Line 6 DL4 Delay Modeler. Standard 9V effects will run from these outputs as well, if you like.

The 2 x Battery SAG Control outputs each offer 100mA of power, but also allow you to "SAG" the voltage from 4V to 9V. This feature can be enabled via the bottom panel switches. This feature is there for the most die-hard tone freaks, allowing you to experiment with the power input behind your distortion pedals, to simulate the "dying battery" tones that so many guitarists swear by.

Ground Loops, Begone

Most of the noise and hum musicians encounter onstage or in the studio is caused by ground loops. With its isolated outputs, the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus breaks unwanted ground paths before they even form.

9 Isolated Outputs

Meanwhile, the Pedal Power 2 Plus employs a specially designed, ultra-low noise toroidal transformer. By placing separate balanced windings on each of the 9 outputs, the Pedal Power 2 Plus eliminates the magnetic field noise caused by most standard "wall wart" power adapters.

No More Noise or Hum

Any power supply can only be as good as its own power input, right? The exceptionally clean sound you'll hear coming from the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus owes to its use of an audiophile-grade linear power supply that prevents the transient noises and hum caused by standard "switching" transformers.

The Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus is handmade in the U.S.A. and comes complete with connection cables, a detachable AC power cord, and a 5-year warranty.

Features:

-6 x 9VDC 100mA and 2 x 9VDC 250mA regulated sources
- SAG outpour section with controls for power sagging distortion units
- Ultra-low noise toroidal transformer
- Four selectable outputs for Boss ACA units

Important!
Pedal Power 2 Plus is manufactured to operate from a specific supply voltage. There are three different models, which accept 100V, 120V, or 240V mains. All units sold in North America are for 120V only. You cannot operate a 120V Pedal Power using 240V power without the correct step down transformer. The supply voltage is marked on the bottom of the unit.

Short Circuit Protection
Each output on the Pedal Power 2 Plus is short-circuit protected. This means that if you have a short in a power cable, or one of your pedals malfunctions, PP 2 Plus will temporarily turn off the power to that pedal. All other outputs will continue to function normally with no long-term damage.

Product Description

Filter, regulate, isolate, and protect! Pedal Power 2 Plus does it, and does it well, because any less will degrade your pedal's performance. Players everywhere upgrade to Pedal Power 2 Plus because it powers what conventional power supplies can't. Pedal Power 2 Plus is hand made in the U.S.A., comes complete with cables, detachable AC power cord, a 5-year warranty, and simply makes you sound better.

More Than Fixing Ground Loops

Ground loops cause hum, and the solution is to break the unwanted ground path. Isolation is the best way to do it. Unlike other power supplies, Pedal Power 2 Plus isolates every output. This eliminates tone robbing interaction between units. Now you can properly power everything from vintage overdrives to modern digital marvels that others just can't.

Proprietary Balanced Transformer

A typical transformer, like those used in a wall wart, creates a large magnetic field that causes hum in any audio path near it. Pedal Power 2 Plus uses a custom designed, ultra-low noise toroidal transformer, with separate balanced windings for every output. Now even the most sensitive pedals can be dead quiet.

Switching power supplies aren't for everything.

What's good for charging a cell phone is NOT good for your pedals. While digital switching power supplies are small and inexpensive, they also generate unpredictable transients and extraneous noise. Pedal Power 2 Plus uses an audiophile quality linear supply for consistently stable, clean, pure power.

Features

9/12V (x4) - Standard 9V and 12V Boss ACA
With each one of these four outputs delivering 100mA, you can easily power any 9V battery-operated pedals. Boss pedals that specify the PSA adapter operate at 9V like most other pedals. Boss pedals that require the ACA adapter operate at 12V which can be selected via switches underneath the Pedal Power 2 Plus. Any one of these outputs can be individually selected to run at 9V or 12V.

9V (x2) - High Current 9V and Line 6 Modelers
These two outputs each deliver 250mA allowing you run high current draw effects like the Boss DD-20 Giga Delay or Line 6 DL4 Delay Modeler. Via switches underneath the Pedal Power 2 Plus, these two outputs can be separately configured for regulated (Boss Twin Pedals) or unregulated (Line 6 Modelers) power allowing you to run both units if so desired. These outputs can also power any standard 9V effects as well.

9V (x2) - Standard 9V With Battery Sag Control
These outputs each have an available 100mA of power, but also allow you to SAG the voltage from roughly 9V to 4V. This feature can be enabled via the bottom panel switches. The SAG control is mostly useful for transistor-based fuzz, octavia, and distortion circuits, as most modern opamp designs are minimally affected by variations in supply voltage. We recommend turning SAG off if you're going to run digital pedals like delay, chorus, and reverb.

18V/24V Using Custom Cables
All of the outputs on the Pedal Power 2 Plus (and the original Pedal Power) are completely isolated allowing you to create different voltages. You can run effects like the current MXR Flanger by combining two 9V outputs to create a single 18V supply. By switching two outputs into 12V ACA mode, you can join them together to create a 24V output for powering numerous Electro-Harmonix stompboxes including the Deluxe Memory Man.
zZounds Expert Review
The staple for pedalboards everywhere, this power supply is incredibly useful and powers a variety of different pedals -- even with different voltages. It even includes 2 outputs that simulate the sound of dying batteries in pedals for an added bonus. If you have several pedals and don't want to worry about your batteries dying in the middle of a gig, then pick this one up.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (37 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Expensive but worth it"
Sound: Sounds Great. Very Quiet. I don't regret it. It consistently powers my pedals right regardless of whats around me. If I'm using single coils or humbuckers, playing with my tv on or by a computer. It keeps things quiet. Feature: This thing can power anything. Read the manual, tells you how to power n get more voltages and what not. If you need some extra cables or more different ones, you'll have to get them or an adaptor or whatever. That's its only downfall. But then again, how would they know if you're using a bunch of specially powered pedals. Better than a 1SPOT any day, neater too. Ease of Use: Its easy as connect your pedals if youre using standard 9V pedals like boss. Quality: This thing is a brick. Literally a brick. You see, feel, and hear the quality. Super reliable. I mean you already spent a small fortune on your pedals, so don't skip out on what powers them. Spend the extra cash, it'll outlive what you paid for it no matter what. Value: I didn't think it was worth $170 in the beginning. But when I hear the noise from before and after. The cost of me using batteries would've passed $170 a long time ago. Manufacturer Support: No need to contact them. It was great out of the box. The Wow Factor: I don't regret it. I do wish it was cheaper, but I'm glad I got it. It went with my pedaltrain perfectly as they said. My pedals are super quiet, and protected. Plus, if a gig place doesn't have good electricity or the power goes this thing will keep them running and sounding right and protect them. I think a piece of mind and consistency in the long run make this power supply better than the others. Overall: I'll start this off by saying this is one of the few supplies that ISOLATES EACH AND EVERY PEDAL, and protects them. This thing makes pedals quiet. I had a boss eq pedal and an ehx small clone that made noise with my 1SPOT while they were off. This got rid of all of the noise. A little comes through when my Small Clone is on, but not as bad as before. Thats just a noisy pedal anyways. Everything else on my board is silent on or off. It comes with enough cables but make sure you know ahead of time what type of pedals you're using and how much voltage and current they're because if you are using a bunch of pedals with random plugs like certain EHX n Line 6 pedals, you'll have to order some cables for those. This thing is super versatile. Especially the Sag voltage feature. Thats what made it worth it. It mounted perfectly under my pedal train 2 (took a couple tries drilling though). The cables were long enough to power my pedals even the ones at the ends of the board.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Paying for silence"
Sound: The sound - or lack there of - is amazing. I originally had just a few pedals that I hooked up using 9v DC adapters plugged into a power strip which added a little bit of noise. I added more pedals and decided to get a DC adapter that lets you plug in 5 pedals to the same wall wart plug, that added a TON of noise. I got the VooDoo and now it's silent. I can have as much gain and distortion as I want and the amp will sound like nothing's plugged into the input. Feature: Nice that you can switch between adapter types ACA and whatever the other one is. I don't have any Line6 so two of the outputs won't be usefull unless I buy line6.. hmm. I plugged my distortion pedal into the SAG (which simulates dying bateries and is supposed to sound different) but I couldn't hear anything because our drummer wouldn't shut up. I do wish there was an on/off switch. As is you have to unplug it, hook it up to a power strip with an on/off, or just leave it running. Ease of Use: Plug it in. Quality: Built like a tank Value: Pretty expensive, I haven't tried any others to know if you can get the same quality at a cheeper price. I'll be using this on my pedal board that'll be used in a studio so utter silence was important and I'm willing to pay for it. Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed it The Wow Factor: Looks fine Overall: I like it, I plan on keeping it on my pedal board for a long time. If it breaks I'll look around and see what else is out there but will most likely stick with it.
