    ...Fuel Tank Chameleon green to be precise. Here's my admittedly very first world problem:

    I want to power three pedals using the Fuel Tank of which two require two outlets and one requires one outlet.

    - Markbass Compressore
    - EBS FuzzMo
    - EBS ValveDrive DI

    Now, the new EBS ValveDrive DI runs on 9v but takes an incredible amout of 700mA (@9V) which, if you ask me, is a LOT of current.

    However, the MB Compressore runs fine at 600mA (2x300mA @ 12V) so would you say it's worth a shot buying the ValveDrive and trying to power it with 600mA (2x300mA @ 9V) "only"?

    This would be my favorite pedal board setup but because of the powering "problem" I am currently using 9V pedals only which do sound good, yes... But maybe not THAT good.

    Current setup:

    - EBS MultiComp
    - EBS FuzzMo
    - EBS MicroBass II

    What say you? :bassist:

    EBS say they recommend using their own power supply. That's that.
