    I've been looking at buying a couple of these Y-cables, I was looking at these a while back, but never bought them.

    Looks like it allows me to use 1 output of my PP2+ to power 2 pedals, so long as both pedals don't exceed the amperage capacity of said output.

    Has anyone bought from this company? Quality stuff? Better alternatives elsewhere?

    maybe I'm confused but I thought the split was to draw 18 volts from the PP2 to an 18 volt pedal...

    Yeah, I have a couple of those to match higher draw pedals, but this appears to be the opposite.

    I've got a daisy chain that I run selected, low draw pedals off of without issue. Note: selectivity is the key aspect to avoiding introducing additional noise. No experience with the specific product in question.
  4. I've bought the VoodooLabs ones and they've worked fine as long as they're connected to adjacent pedals. I'm using two now no probs.

    I just went and checked those out, and placed an order.
