18v PSU recommendation (for Fulltone BassDrive)

Recommended Posts

I have this pedal on my board. Running it at 18v (as recommended) uses up two of my power outputs from the PedalPower 2. I am thinking of running a dedicated 18v PSU from the auxiliary 240v output of the PedalPower 2. Therefore a wallwart supply is no good.

Any recommendations of a good 18v that would work well like this?

Diago do (or did) an adapter for a 9v supply that would internally double it to 18v. So you could keep the same supply, and only use up one output. Something to think about if you could track one down.

Diago don't sell direct anymore, but I rang them up and managed to get hold of one that way anyway as a kind of special order. Don't know if other companies make a similar adapter.

Thanks - but Diago is a switch-mode PSU - it does things differently to the transformer-based PedalPower. I don't think it would work.

You wont notice a huge difference with going to 18v.

Maybe youll hear a little more clarity, maybe thats something im imagining.

I still sounds viscious at deafening volume.

I'm not sure what this means but when I had that pedal I used the Diago psu with the 18v adaptor and it worked fine.
