    Is it possible to make cables for a Pedal Power? I could really use a couple of them to be about 2 or 3 inches longer. Does anyone sell custom lengths? Voodoo is taking their time getting back to me... :)

    I use a thin speaker cable and right-angle plugs from radio shack.

    How do the ends fasten to the speaker cable?

    Try calling them up. They have great customer service on the phone. I called asking about how to obtain a battery-clip adapter plug for my PP2 and they took my address and mailed me one free of charge. Great guys. It says in the manual that they do custom lengths, you should call.

    I made my own when I got the original Pedal Power in 1988. If you can solder, it's cake. I actually made shorter ones for the pedals that were right in front of the PP. Voodoo Labs only included six of the barrel type cables, and I needed eight for my board (there was a time when I actually used only eight pedals?!?!?).

    That's brilliant. Can you tell me what gauge solder you used? That would help tidy things up a bit.

    just use thin, 2 conducter cable, like you find on a boss AC adapter
    plugs are available from Rat Shack for BOSS type as well as others..

    I made my own to length
