Looking for a decent pedal power supply

Post by Ben Asaro »

I've been having increasing issues with noise using a 1-Spot for my pedals. Sooo ..

I am looking for a power supply for 5 pedals, all in the 200mA range. I am thinking of the strymon Ojai.

Does anyone here use one? Thoughts? Alternative recommendations?

I haven't used the Styrmon, but I do have a few of their pedals and the quality is top notch. I'd imagine their power supplies are too. I doubt you'd go wrong by getting one. :thumbup:

I have a Palmer PWT 05 MkII which would seem to fit your needs. 5x 9V outputs @ 250mA each - costs about €80. Not sure of availability on your side of the pond though. I've had it for about 3 years now and it's never given any trouble.

Thanks! Most of the pedals I will be using need more than 200mA each.

The one spot pro is fully isolated and well priced

Maybe giving the full mA requirements per pedal will help, otherwise you’ll be looking up a lot of recommended PSUs that simply aren’t up to the job.

I’m going to go with the Ojai or Zuma, was mostly curious to see if anyone else here used one, but then I saw some demos that convinced me.

The separate PSU is a weak point for me. A shame they haven't got an integral IEC option.

I agree, but it’s not a deal breaker for me.

I have an Ojai. What can I say about it… it’s a power supply: if you can’t notice it it’s doing its job well. I dont notice it at all :mrgreen:

I use an MXR Isobrick, works just fine, variable voltage outputs, lots of different loadings.
I’m running my Big Sky, vintage Boss stuff, and a couple more, no noise issues.

Thanks, that's precisely what I'm looking for! :D

GigRig Generator is unbeatable in my opinion. Had one for about 10 years now. Modular so it can grow and shrink as required. Brilliant investment.

Ojai arrived yesterday. I am very impressed! The sequential power up is a nice touch and it fits really well under the pedal board even with the power supply mounted as well.
