Power Jacks?

Postby BlobWeird » Fri May 18, 2007 2:23 pm

Anyone know if there are kits out there for pedal power jacks? Or just cheaper jacks out there somewhere? I need like 4 more jacks but they are like $20 from boss and i know they are cheaper out there somewhere. Makin one couldnt be that hard right? just need to know the exact voltage and resistance needed.

You could always get one of those cable end adapters from Visual Sound. They have one that goes from a 9v coaxial plug at one end to a 9v battery clip on thje other end. So you just connect the 9v P/S right to the battery clip. They cost like $3. They also have Line 6, reverse-polarity, and mini-plug adapters.

I have a Boss Chromatic Tuner (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/ ... sku=213012) that doubles as a power supply for up to 8 additional pedals. That may solve some of your problem. They make power supplies that will supply up to 8 pedals (I think, I don't own one, but have looked at them). Check any music store or online store.
