View Full Version : Hardwire Reverb
09-14-2010, 05:07 PM
I need some help guys...I'm an idiot and I just powered my new Hardwire Reverb with my PP2 not realizing that the Hardwire needs 300 mA. I quickly realized this and then just tried it out on battery power. It takes a second or two for the reverb to start up when I switch modes and the reverb sounds a bit weak...Am I screwed?

as far as I know: as long as the input voltage and polarity were correct there shouldnt be any damage to the pedal.

The Hardwire RV-7 only draws 75 mA (it is in the manual). The PP2 should power it without a problem. (I power mine with a BBE Supacharger)

Thanks for the responses. Is there supposed to be a lag in the reverb when you switch between modes?

I just went all the way through mine strumming an E chord and switched through all the modes and there was NO lag or dead space. The only lag will be into the Reverse mode, because it's backing-up or whatever it does in it's crazy world.
Hope your pedal is o.k.

For me there is lag - when I change modes it takes a couple seconds for the reverb to be engaged... After that there is no lag between hitting the note and the reverb working, if that makes sense.

If the pedal needs 75 mA as stated above then there should be no problem with using the PP2. The pedal will only draw as much current as it needs regardless of how many mA the power supply has avalilable over that required by the pedal. I'd just shut everything down and try it again.
