In this episode Daniel and Mick explain how to power your pedals... properly. It’s really not that complicated to understand, though it’s nevertheless a confusing subject for many people, simply because there are so many different power supply options available.

As we explain in the video however, if you satisfy each of these four things, you’ll never be confused about power again! All hail the enlightenment of VCPI. Erm…

V. Voltage
C. Current
P. Polarity
I. Isolation

After the life-changing lesson of VCPI, we go on to talk about the effect of using different voltages in pedals that are designed to take it, for example an overdrive, chorus and compressor that can take anything from 9 to 18 volts. The tonal effect can be a big deal, as you’ll hear. And just what do we think of daisy chains? All will be revealed.
