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.

Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus Supply

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.

"Expensive but worth it"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
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.

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.

Features
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 read more 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.
