    I only just found out about this now, this seems very useful for a practice setup. The 9v power is what got me hooked since they're easier to deal with than a special 24v adapter, as my Mooer Baby Bomb's adapter had a broken brick which got fixed last week.

    9v 500ma is definitely handy. I bet this will be popular with people who just need to make some sound through a cab and aren't worried about tons of headroom for gigging or cutting above a drummer. I know I'd be into it if I were a pedal preamp guy :2c:

    This definitely seems to be the niche this is meant for, and for ~$60, I think it's priced right to service it.

    I wonder when the 100 watt "50 Cal." pedal power amp is coming out. Is the 200 watt bass version going to be called the "Nitro Express"? :lol:

    This is cool but, if your power supply has an 18v output you would probably be better off with an AMT Tubecake TC-3 imo.

    When it comes to poweramps, presence and resonance are super important to me.

    Would this pedal be appropriately powered by linking two 9v outputs from a power supply with one of these?

    I had the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power X2 which only had 9v out, but the MXR 10-band EQ ia 18V, and that adaptor cable worked for that. Very handy.
