EBS Pedals and how to power them

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by LAKLAND011, Dec 7, 2002.


  1. I have an EBS Octabass and I've been powering it off of my Boss daisy chain. I have no manual for it but I heard somewhere that the Boss power supply will fry it because the voltage is different. Is this true?

    If it is true, what other options do I have besides a separate EBS wall wart?

    Thanks

    No, not true. Same voltage and polarity.

    You can use

    - Batteries
    - Wall wart
    - Phantom power (see EBS manual)

    I tried a rechargeable battery pack to replace the wall wart (problems with hum) but have gone back to the wart (EBS model).

    I've been using a Signalflex PS-9, and my EBS Multidrive is doing fine with no problems.

    I power mine from the TU-2, which in turn is powered from a Boss wall wart. Same polarity, no hiss or hum, good to go!
