HX Stomp/HX Effects powered via Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2 Plus? SOLUTION!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

 

The Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2+ is industry standard and one of the most popular, accessible and easily one of the best all-round pedal power supply unit you can buy today. 

 

I've seen soooo many guys saying they need to sell their Voodoo Lab PP2+ power supply because it won't power their HX Stomp.

Before you do that READ THIS POST!

 

This will work on most boards, depending on board height and where your power supply is on the board.

 

All you need to power an HX Stomp or HX effects is a cable from the courtesy outlet that you can plug the supplied wall wart into.

that it literally it.

 

As I'm in the UK I needed to get an IEC 320 C14 Male to USA UL 2Pin female power cord 28CM (click name to link...) and connect it to the courtesy outlet on the PP2+. You may need a different variation depending on where in the world you are but IT WORKS!

It works, no dropouts, plenty of power to go around, safe.

Don't go selling your Voodoo Lab PP2+ just because people have suggested you need a new one (or ordered you to buy the biggest, most expensive power supply because they have it and it's amazing at powering their 5 pedals with less than 30mA needed each, apart from that £350 delay pedal but now you have to buy it too because REASONS.. we've all seen those Facebook threads....).

 

Anyway, the bottom line is this... Don't feel the need to splash out on a new PSU for your entire board just to power one thing.

There are lower cost solutions that work.

This particular solution cost me £6 or less.
