For a while now I have been relying on a single power supply that then has a daisy chain cable to power all of my pedals, unfortunately mains power isn’t predictable and while you may have an ok supply at home your band rehearsal space or various venues you play might have dirty power which introduces noise into your signal chain. By daisy chaining you amplify the noise generated therefore making the problem even worse, plus you can only power 9v pedals, what if you have pedals that run on 12v or 18v?
The Fuel Tank Chameleon is an isolated power supply which has mini switches that allow you to change each output. There are 4 outputs switchable from 9v to 12v DC (300mA each), 1 that is switchable from 9v to 18v DC (300mA) and a pair of outputs that you can’t use simultaneously but the first is 9v or 12v DC and the second is 12v AC again 300mA each so you choose whichever is applicable from the two.
- Noise-cancelling galvanic isolated outputs
- Several different voltage types served
- Current doubler = the possibility of as much as 600 mA
- All the cables you need
- Switchable 115V or 230V
- Compact, rugged, road-ready design
- Legendary T-Rex quality
You have the option of powering each pedal from a single output or using a daisy chain cable, the advantage over the method I previously mentioned is that you can choose to only power a few pedals in a chain which limits potential noise. In the demo below I have the Suhr Shiba Drive, Koko Boost and TC Electronic PolyTune Mini daisy chained from a single 9v output, I have the Strymon El Capistan in the effects loop powered from a separate output and although not used in this demo the TC Electronic Corona Chorus and Mad Professor Tiny Orange Phaser are also being powered from separate outputs too.
