Well guys...I spent my first paycheck on something that I've been needing...very badly apparently.



Yup! I finally replaced my old DC Power Brick with the Voodoo Pedal Power 2...Isolated outputs FTMFW!

So, as expected, it cut down on my noise...infact, there is almost no noise unless I have my Tubescreamer on (but that's to be expected).

Here's some things that I didn't expect to happen...they were pleasant surprises!

-Increased overall volume
-Better, fuller tone
-More sustain

If I had known how big a difference this pedal was going to make, I would have gotten it sooner.

Oh, we also got this:



Its a Behringer Keyboard Amp/ PA.

Now, seeing as this is essentially a keyboard amp with PA functions slapped on, I didn't expect much...but wow!

First of all, the keyboard sounds better than ever...but what surprised me was the quality of the PA...

It only has one XLR (which is fine for my purposes), but the quality is pretty great. Now I can hear my beautiful voice amplified throughout the apartment (and my neighbors can appreciate my singing...poor them).

Also, don't be surprised if some robot hookers try to solicit sex to you on the streets.

HNGD bro! I've been looking into the Voodoo power supply for a while (also as an upgrade to my brick, lol) and you might have convinced me. Haha.

Sweet. I used to own one but it got stolen at a gig. I haven't bothered to replace it as I cut back on my pedals. It's a huge step up from the Dunlop unit for sure. You tried running the TS at 12V yet?

No! I didn't even know that was a thing...people do that?

What are the advantages?

HNGD. I picked up the same model a couple of weeks ago. Beats the hell out of buying 9V batteries all the time, and the SAG outputs are handy for experimenting with lowered voltage effect on a pedal's sound.

there is a difference when you finally get decent power. that's for sure.

congrats on the new gear.

Yea, some people like it. I didn't notice too big of a difference tonally but it responded a bit better dynamically and had a bit more output.

I tried it out...I definitely prefer it that way! I noticed it sounds less...digital...that's the only way I can describe it. When I run it at 9 volts, my tone changes noticeably, but on 12v it just stacks on gain, and a bit of volume, but it retains the original tone.

Much MUCH better. Thank you for the tip!

Hmmm. Wonder how that will work with the Bad Monkey...
