The Power List is basically a collection of current draw figures for lots of guitar effects pedals. You can use it to figure out how much power you need from a power supply, or (which might be just as frequent) to find out why a certain pedal won’t work from the power supply you have… 🙂
This list isn’t complete – not by a longshot – but more a collection of findings. The list is updated as new measurements come in, so check back if your pedal isn’t listed. Or better yet, measure it yourself (here’s how), let me know the result, and I’ll post it here. Please don’t mail me with requests – if I don’t have it in the list, it is simply because I don’t have it.
If you’re looking for the list of power supplies, it’s at the end of the list (after the various pedal brands). Here’s a direct link.
If there are two current draw figures posted (for instance 12/14 mA) they refer to the bypass/active modes. When you see the word (stated) added to the figure, it means the figure is the manufacturer’s official number, rather than measured by a user.
Voltage is assumed to be 9vDC, except where specified. I’ve recently started simplifying the list a littie, posting only bypass/active figures when there are significant differences and removing decimals (so 7.8mA turns into 8mA). The normal format will therefore be just a single mA figure, which makes the list a little easier to read.
Thank you:s and an invitation
Also, I’d like to thank everyone who contributes to this list – without you it would be much shorter.. Thanks! If you want to contribute, measure your pedal and e-mail the figures to me on andreas (at) stinkfoot.se, or simply leave them as a comment below.
