Power Supply - Aimed at UK Members

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by BruceBass3901, Mar 3, 2010.


  1. I was just flicking through the Maplins catalogue, and saw a power supply for 6 effect pedals with a total available current of 450mA. This would suit be very well at the moment, as I am not a massive pedal junkie ( yet ;) ). More than anything, the price was what caught my eye; under £20.

    Anyway, here is my question; does anybody here have any experince of this supply? Any problems experienced?

    Thanks in advance :)

    6 for 450mA seems a little ambitious. 4 or 5 would be my guess.

    Maplin used to be pretty good people to deal with, but it's been 12 years since I last had anything to do with them.

    I'm sure I know the one you're talking about, which I returned due to the huge hiss/noise whenever I turned my dirt pedals on. If you think you're going to start building a collection of pedals, then I'd suggest buying a Diago Powerstation, which is costly but at the same time won't let you down. Your call.

  7. Cheers for all of that guys, I'll have a closer look later on :)

    Another question here regarding powering pedals; I have a Boss TU-2, and that has an output for a dasiy chain that supports 200mA. Could I run the TU-2 with a daisy chain to other pedals AND have a daisy chain from the power supply? If so, would that 200mA be drawn from the supply, or is it drawn from the TU-2 separatly?

    the tu2 is basically just another plug on the daisy chain. it has no way of adding to the original supplies output.

    Personally I'd use a Diago Powerstation in your situation.
