OVERVIEW:

A very useful feature to a modern pedalboard is integrated power. To do this is very simple, we just need to determine a few things and we’ll have your DIY Pedalboard powered up in no time. We’ll give you all the info to choose, pick & install your own pedal board power system…


INTRO:

I personally think all pedalboards need to have integrated power, or at least make it SUPER EASY TO POWER the board up. What we are accomplishing is simply supplying AC power to all the needed components on your board with one cord so we can actually play the thing and play, not spend all afternoon trying to get it to work!

We make this super easy with individual parts to construct your own, pre-made harnesses & kits or… simply purchasing our boards that already include the power section.

POWER INLET:

The first component in any power section is the inlet piece. We use 2 power inlet styles, IEC and Edison style. The most common is the IEC port. If you think you will need to have a long cord to power your board, the Edison style is a great choice. It should accept almost any standard US extension cord. We also suggest the Edison inlet if you need an angled, Female Esison, or power strip pigtail assembly. The installation hole is large enough so those will work. When using the IEC port, you are restricted to the installation hole size. When purchasing a pre made harness, we can only send that out with the straight IEC or the C5 aka Mickey Mouse plug.

INDY LAMP & TOGGLE SWITCH:

Why certainly not necessary, the indicator lamp and toggle switch were one of the biggest requested add-ons for our custom board builds. It was so popular, that we include it in all of our angled board builds. The toggle switch is very handy when you want to leave the board plugged in, but not have power running to the devices. When power is plugged in and toggle switch is on, the indicator lamp lights up!

PEDALBOARD POWER PIGTAIL:

The main purpose of the pigtail is to get our board powered. To properly run the pedals, we need a power supply, or more then one power supply. A properly configured power section will easily and properly power these all your pedals and other devices. We made a visual reference guide to help determine what pigtail you need. Our most common is the straight IEC. We’re shooting for a seamless connection from the incoming AC wall power through the inlet, to your pedal powering device(s) and thats it.
