    Does anyone know who custom makes power supplies? I'm awful tired of having to bring around 4 separate power supplies every gig.

    I found this on google: http://www.rjmmusic.com/custom.html. Anyone with experience dealing with them?

    Ok perhaps I was too vague. I currently use 4 different power supplies for different voltages - 15vdc (tonebone hot british), 24vdc (ehx memory man), 9vdc center positive (murf) and 9vdc center negative (usually 6-8 other pedals).

    So my question is whether there is anyone who will make me a single power supply so I don't have to bring around the four that i currently use.

    OK thats a lot lot lot better! i can now help you! I dont think i know of any companies who will do four different voltages/types of power in one package. The Voodoo lab Pedal Power 2 can handle 8 pedals which can either be centre pos or centre neg at 9 volts dc. (normal boss/digitech/90% of all pedals) For the others i think you will just have to live with them being on their own power line.


    hope that helps

    Thanks for the quick reply AJ

    It seems that Bob Bradshaw (http://www.customaudioelectronics.com) does custom make power supplies with multiple voltages. Won't be cheap though - He charges $250 for a standard power supply with 8 9vdc outputs. So i'll probably just stick to what I have for now.

    I was about to say the same thing...and as coincidence would have it, I received my Flatliner from Brad @ ToneFactor less than an hour ago!

    Shakti is correct - this group of voltage requirements is no problem for the JuiceBox 3.0. :AOK

    I wasn't aware that the Flatliner had added 24 volt and 15 volt DC outputs. :confused:

    +1 for the JuiceBox 003! Solved all my crazy voltage issues, and plenty of output. They're great folks to deal with, too!

    Thanks guys for all the help and suggestions! :AOK

    The juicebox doesn't by default come with 15v and 24v outputs. The 15vdc output is a special mod which they charge an extra 25euros for. As for the 24vdc output, i'll have to join 2 12vdc outputs with a y-cable.

    For my present needs, it looks like the juicebox suits me better. Cheaper too! The flatliner is listed as 260euros ($331!!!)

    $225 shipped, with a bag of candy via ToneFactor. I'm hooking mine up right now in fact. :)

    The JuiceBox DOES come with two outputs settable for just about any voltage between 4 and 24 so i think it would do what you want!
