Hey Hugo, Just tagging onto this. It seems the power supply connector from the Timeline is shorter than the Voodoo Cables. Voodoo Labs' power supplies are the standard. Please let me know if you have further trouble by sending us an email to with any additional detail and pictures of what you are experiencing. Yesterday I tried to power my TimeLine, but the light of the supply started flickering and nothing happened. I am just wondering how to solve this issue immediately.
This can happen during playing and can cut the signal chain and can be a big problem, especially in live gig situations. The supplied power jumper cables will not fully insert into the back of the Timeline. Hi Strymon I have recently purchased the big sky finally! I am hoping to add one of the Brains, a Fuzz Ray and possibly the Seltzerado at some point. Sometimes it works fine and other times you have to give an slight adjustment to ensure that there is contact between the adapter and 2 pin plug. Go forth and keep all of your pedals happy! We have never tested that supply, but if it does provide those output specs, it will work to power 1 Strymon pedal from output 8. The main benefit of isolated outputs is that you can power 2 or more pedals that shouldn't be powered with the same output separately for example: in most cases you shouldn't power more than 1 digital effect with the same output because this can create noise. For image posts of your gear, it is required that you write your thoughts on the pedals in the comments - at least a short first impressions, review, a sound clip, your uses for them, etc.
Hope my rant was somewhat helpful, cheers! I am curious about the Friedman product that is coming as well. I am looking at the Mooer Micro Power which has 8 300mA outputs, that's a super cheap but well-reviewed supply. You can also add another one, or an Ojai the smaller model, has 5 500 mA outputs if you need more power. I tried to use the included power supply out of the box but there is noise in my rig that was removed when I connected it to 200mA out put of the schizophrenic. They're convenient and seem well built and reliable for what they are, but in the end it's kinda like a high capacity, feature rich 1Spot.
I have been having an issue where the Strymon power supply keeps falling out of the power outlet. Josh — The BigSky pedal requires a minimum of 300mA of current to operate reliably. You have to use isolated outputs, each. That will only be a potential problem if the supply you'll be using doesn't have true isolated outputs. If this is not happening, the pedals must not be receiving what they need from that power source after charge. You can ruin pedals beyond repair, accidentaly when turning these ones around. If the 10 9V outlets share the 750mA of current, then these outlets are not isolated.
Can you please provide the make and model of this power supply? You may also want to move the link cable around to see if that causes the power to drop. So I've recently gotten into pedals over the last year and I've tried several power supplies. I had one twice and I believe it just kind of flashes at 100 ma. Alternatively, please feel free to use our accounts on social media such as Facebook or Twitter to get in touch. Another benefit of isolated outputs is knowing that the current delivered to a pedal will be consistent - particularly important with digital pedals.
Voodoo Labs and Ciocks have been well regarded for quite some time The Eventide power brick is a Cioks. Outputs 5 and 6 on the Pedal Power 2+ only provide 250mA of current each. This could be a grounding problem with the setup. Marcus — Sorry to hear that you are having trouble with powering your pedals with Ojai. It has over-current protection, and although there's no specific high-draw output, if you box clever you can simulate one. You will need to power 1 of these devices with their own separate power supply or find another power supply solution that can provide isolated power to all of the listed items. My take is that these devices are fairly equal on this level.
Thank you Sent from my iPhone Sent from my iPhone Brandon Thomas — Sorry to hear that you are having trouble with the blueSky pedal. I was supplied with the standard power supply, which came boxed, plus a 3 pin adapter. We recommend using our included power supply, as they should always power up your Strymon pedals without issue. Strymon stuff never goes on sale. Petr — Sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your Flint pedal. The Spark, meanwhile, is a more straightforward power supply with a super-thin form factor that means it can be mounted under smaller boards like the new Pedaltrain Nano series.
The Mobius even worked perfectly when I power it from two outputs that only provide 100mA 1-4 , which means that it actually only needs 200mA. No more voltage than stated, ever! Chris — The length of the barrel connectors on power cable ends such as those from Voodoo Labs and our own power supplies are pretty standard. If the outlets of this type of power supply are not isolated, you may get additional noise and hum in your audio signal. Some will be introduced at the amplifier, but a lot of the noise introduced by pedals can be removed. What is the connection setup that you are using the Mobius in? Isolation and noise-wise, Truetone is secretive about their technology and Strymon provides information that most will not really understand or care to. If so, does changing the audio cables that are connecting these devices while powered in this manner change the behavior at all? It's been working fine for me for months, and I'm loving the small size and negligible amount of weight it adds to my board, but am looking to expand my board a bit soon so I may look at one of the Strymon power supplies, as they seem to be the only ones that have everything I need in terms of current draw.
The place for all things related to guitar pedals. When i first got the timeline nothing would elminate a massive amount of hum even just powered on its own with the provided supply until i purchased the necassery gigrig isolators timelord and power supply which then lead to no issues since. Jason — Thanks for checking out the blog! Negligible difference bewteen the two, if it were a blind test I don't know if I could tell which was more quiet. My favorite feature is that they say you don't have to worry about the draw on each port, you only have to worry about the total draw. Hi, i bought in last time two smaller units El Capistan and Ola, I plan to buy soon one more Blue Sky.
