    I've been seeing Artec on ebay for a little while now. I think they're usually for sale in the UK.

    A discussion on Artec pedals came up a long while back, particularly about their EQ pedal. I don't recall if we brought up the tuner though.

    And I don't think anyone here has tried any of their pedals yet :meh:

    this pedal doesn't look like you can change the A frequency (440, 441, etc) you want to be in

    Not very expensive over here with cheaper then a DT-10 and TU-2 I might give one a go I've wanted a spare tuner for a while

    OK. So why – and how – would I have to tune my pedals? I'd much rather have a tuner pedal.

    I like that tuner... if its cheaper than say $70 I might just get it

    the only reason I haven't bought a pedal tuner yet is because I can't justify spending $80 - $100 on one, actually $70 is a bit much in my mind as well

    i didn't know there was more than one ebay... I thought everyone everywhere saw the same thing...

    I checked out both US ebay and UK ebay and niether has this pedal tuner. both had artec products though
     
  13. well, at the current exchange rate it would cost about 67 USD, then tack on shipping...hmm maybe a UK tb'er could find a used one lol :)

    looks like they make lots of pedals

    http://artecsound.com/effect/index.html

    the navigation of what type of pedals you are looking at is on the top of the page, its not a very intuitive web design
     
  15. The Power brick look neat but only goes to 12v, sort of leaves out the big 18v pedals. :meh:

    well you could always use two of the 9V jacks in parallel... that is if it has isolated jacks... but then you take up two spaces where you could be powering other pedals... or you could do that and still daisy chain the 9Vs... it has potential

    you could use the two 12V outputs like that to power the 24V QTron

    it would be good to know if there are isolated outputs cause if there are, this could solve all my power needs

    but then again the system I have now works and I don't really need to take up less space...

    Never seen or heard about them.
    The LED tuner reminds me the TC Electronics G-Force.

    As for DC bricks, my Cioks offers 9,12, 18 and 24 V with all possible plugs and voltage doublers.

    is yours custom? cause I was looking at the site and none of them do what you say

    It's not custom. It's the Double Jack.

    I use a Booster Flex to get 18 V for my Fulltone from a 9 V output.

    If you need 24 V, a Booster Flex plugged in a 12 V output will do the job.
