Power Pump

Power Pump

Need 18V to give your overdrive some headroom? POW!

Need -9V for your posi-ground fuzz? POW!

Sweet little board that will give you:

  • An 18V supply of around 20mA (depending on the IC used) from a standard 9V supply.
  • A -9V supply from a standard 9V supply, so you can power your posi-ground pedal on the same power daisy chain as your standard polarity effects.
  • Optional Starve control on the -9V supply to simulate a dying battery.

Please note: due to the relatively low power output it is recommended that you use one of these for each circuit requiring the power. 20mA isn't a great deal. Check your pedal power consumption if in doubt. Not recommended for battery use.

The starve pot (if used) is board-mounted for minimal wiring and easy enclosure mounting.

Kit includes: PCB, all components, hook-up wire.

Difficulty: Easy

PCB size: 25 x 22mm

Not very exciting, but incredibly useful 5 product stars
"If you are building a PNP (original spec) Fuzz Face then one of these will make your life a lot easier. I didn't use the starve pot this time (it simulates a flat battery and allows for some impressive 'exploding amp' type sounds). I was building a Fuzz Face to dual box with a home-brewed Octavia, and it all needed to run off the power suppply on my pedal board. The Power Pump supplies -9v to the Fuzz Face, allowing me to treat it as if it was a regular negative-earth pedal. Excellent. It can also be built to supply 18v. The Disorder pedal, in particular, sounds even better when supplied with the additional voltage." John Roberts - 08/12/2013
