8-Head Multi-Plug Daisy-Chain Cable for Guitar Pedal Power Adapters
Power up to eight guitar effects pedals with only a single AC adapter using this 8-Head Multi-Plug Daisy-Chain Power Cable from Monoprice!
This adapter is designed to work with the Monoprice guitar effects pedals, the Monoprice 9V AC power adapter, the Monoprice 18V AC power adapter, and all standard guitar effects pedals and power supplies on the market.
It features a single female DC connector on one end and eight male DC connectors at intervals of about 13.5". It uses the standard 5.5mm barrel and 2.1mm pin diameters used by all standard pedals and pedal power adapters. The total cable length is about 122".
The Voodo device, as listed on Sweetwater, includes the outputs and cables for powering 8 devices. If you needed to power more than 8 pedals, you could attach this cable to the end of a single output cable from that device and have an additional 7 outputs. As long as those cables fit into a common pedal power port it should be fine.
You may need to be careful with where the positive pin is, but these cables will just pass through whatever your original source is.
PROS: Built solid, no noise
PROS: Inexpensive, lifetime guarantee, right angle connector saves pedalboard space. Fits MOST effects.
CONS: Does NOT work well with my Monoprice tuner.
PROS: Lots of length. Inexpensive.
PROS: Price, number of connections
Lots of length
PROS: Long length both overall and the distance between plugs.
Right-angle plugs not sure why manufacturers took so long to realize this is the more practical form-factor!
Quality seems good cable is thick, plugs are well connected and fit well nothing seems cheap
8-plugs 6 is much more common, but the added plugs are really nice to have, especially if you have a lot of pedals or need to span large sections on your pedal board.
CONS: None really. With shipping in a larger order, the cost comes out close to $7 which is very good but you can get 6-bangers on ebay for $5, so it'd be NICE to get these, alone, with shipping for 7 or less. But that's just penny-pinching. No cons on the product itself.
Right off the bat I could see that this one is way thicker than the cheap flimsy one that came with my pedalboard, So i took out the original and installed this new one, I did have to use one male end plug, since the power supply from the board itself requires a male plug, so the female end is now at the other end with the old daisy chain plugged into this new one. (wish I could add a photo or two) I also like how the cables exit the plugs, far more neater than the old one!
And now I also no longer have some noise and interference that I had and thought my Flanger or Chorus pedal was bad or going bad, and I even have that one extra spare plug I really needed for my waa-waa pedal that sits outside the board, since this cable has 8 plugs whereas my original cable had only 7 plugs. One other GREAT thing about this new Monop[rice chain is that one end is a female, I CAN plug the flimsy old one into the end of the new one and have up to 15 plugs if need be, and YES, I have tested that theory and all do get enough power and operate perfectly from just 1 wall wart plugged into my Furman power conditioner! Another win/win for me thanks to Monoprice! You guys and your high quality gear NEVER disappoint nor let ME down! Once again, Monoprice Rocks! Thanks! \m/
PROS: Can link to another daisy chain, Very well made, Eliminated some hum/noise for me, Perfect
