Digitech power supply

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by romac, Jun 24, 2004.


  1. I'm looking to buy a Digitech X series chorus effect pedal from music123.com. Now I'm buying from there since they ship internationally and where I live bass effect pedals are very expensive. My question is - do you have to use the special digitech power supply? Or could I go to my local Radioshack and get a power supply to power 4.8Watts unit?

    I need a 240V power supply you see, so I can't order the one from music123.com. Or could I order it and then use a transformer? What do you technical minded people suggest?

    I've had no problems using standard Boss PSU or onespot power adaptors

    So let me get this straight. If I get a Boss TU2, the power adapter (PS120 I think), and the daisy chain, that I can power Digitech and Boss pedals at the same time with no problem?

    Yep. As a matter of fact, I mod all my pedals to accept that type of adapter. One helluva daisy chain. :)

    Sweet!

    So the Digitechs won't have to be modded right? Just plug and play?

    99% sure. Don't quote me. Just make sure they require a center negative jack and it'll be fine.

    100% sure. I power a Digitech Synth Wah and TU-2 , among others, off of a godlyke one-spot adaptor.

    Should be fine! No reason I can see for it not to work, although obviously I haven't tried it with 240V since I'm in the US.
