Power supply on a budget?
« on: June 16, 2017, 06:27:22 pm »
Can any of you good folk recommend a decent budget power supply? I've got about £50. It will be powering around 7 9v pedals.

Thanks

There are ones for 10 pedals on amazon for £30 with the cables supplied and have good reviews. The amazon app does not give me a link though.

Hi

I have seen these but they seem to get mixed reviews. Have you got one?

Thanks

No I haven't. The Memteq one has 4.6 stars though, 36 5* reviews so it must be OK.  Amazon are really good if you want to return an item that does not suit your needs.

I went with the Harley Benton power plant off Thomann. I have to say it has got rid off all the unwanted noise issues I had. It came with all the cables and it seems very sturdy.

hi Antwilk1981

How is that supply working out for you? Going well I hope? Any pros/cons you'd care to mention please?

Thank you

The link you have for ebay that power supply looks like it is for a laptop computer

You need to be careful re-purposing laptop power supplies. They often rely on sensing to deliver a stable voltage (a way of laptop manufacturers selling you an expensive branded supply rather than a proprietary one for half the price!).

The other issue with them is electrical noise. The power supply on one of my laptops kills the PA in my church because of this.

The best line is to buy a PSU designed for the purpose and those recommended from Amazon or Thomann will fit the bill by the look of it.

(Sorry for banging on but as a recently retired electronics engineer I just can't help it.)
