    I'm looking for plugs to make up my own power cables. Specifically I have some five plug cables that I want to split into two and three plug cables for two different pedal boards so I'd like to get a plug I can solder on the end of the cut cable. Any ideas?

    For the replacement cords for a Voodoo Labs Pedal Power+ or anything like it, sweet water has a great assortment of 18in. cords. Angled angled, angled straight. You name it, they have it. I've looked all over the place, yet they are the ones who have the best power cords.

    Thanks. I'll keep that in mind although that's not what I need at this time.

    Are you referring to a female 2.1 x 5.5mm connector? If you are splitting a daisy chain, you can place a male 2.1 x 5.5mm connector at the ends to plug directly into your PSU.

    Yes a female. I use a lithium battery for power so I just need to take an existing plug and turn it into two or three.

    The solder-it-yourself right-angle plugs have a tendency to fall apart, in my experience, very annoying.

    I bought some GigRig Distributor cables, with pre-molded right-angle ends to go into the pedals and wired together what I needed with those.

    If you are looking for the female counterpart, then go to Mouser.com for it. You will need to do a search, but I would look up Kobiconn connectors to start.
