    Hi all!

    I have a Gator G Bus 8 Pedal Board and a few weeks back the power cable for the power supply broke. It literally split into 2 parts so I can't really fix it.

    I've been looking for a replacement both at local shops and online but I just can't find it.

    Does anyone know where can I find a replacement? I don't really care if it's generic.

    It actually seems to have 2 different cable options, below are the descriptions and I also attached some photos:

    I had the same exact issue and I ended up getting a one-spot and power my pedals off my Boss TU-2

    Is this what you're looking for? One pic shows power 'in' and I believe the other pic is your 3 18V outputs...

    It looks like it!.. It might sounds dumb (I don't know much about electronics) but why would it have 3 different inputs and why is it 3x18V instead of just 18V?

    DC-IN... input

    Three 18 volt outputs are a great option, when you have three pedals that require 18 volts... out, to power the pedal(s).

    I mean I have actually 6 pedals on that board. But does that mean I need 3 cables? That makes no sense does it? Or am I getting it wrong?

    The power it puts out is then giving you the options of all of the 8 9v outlets AND three 18v outlets to power your pedals.

    Some pedals may require 18v instead of the usual 9v hence they give you this ability. As long as you aren't running lots of digital pedals you should be fine utilising all outputs ( I regularly have 8 pedals on my pedal board with that power supply and have no issues)

    Your power supply can power 9V and 18V pedals.

    The side with the three 18V outputs are for powering 18V pedals.
    You would need a separate cable for each 18V pedal you want to power, just the same as the 9V outputs.
