PostSubject: Two Questions - Part 1 - Nocturne Power   Wed Jul 14, 2010 8:25 am

So, i finally received my Dyno Nocturne pedal in Cherry Fizz or whatever we're calling it Very Happy , and read in great detail the suggestions for power supply. However, I am an idiot when it comes to these things, and need my hand held. I have some power supplies at home, and some pedals. Some power supplies with some pedals give off a wicked hum. Some do not. I'm told that for example, my Dano Reel Echo requires a specific power supply. Is this the same thing for the Nocturne? And what are the differences in these power supplies?

Hi mark,

you have to check the polarity of the pedal and how much Volt required.
For example: my Nocturne pedal need a 9Volt DC power supply, polarity centre negative..
And i recommend good power supplies like this one:

Thanks, Brett! For whatever reason, the few guitar pedals that I had prior to the Nocturne with power supplies had a sleeve negative polarity. Weird.

all boss/ibanez pedals use a standard 2.1 negative tip cannon plug adaptor. Other companies are irritating in trying to make you buy their stupid power supply adaptor.

regarding the Nocturne, please dont plug in any adaptor that is not a high quality, filtered
audio AC adaptor. I've had to receive some pedals back and I get told they dont work only for me to find that someone plugged in the wrong adaptor and fried the opamp
in the preamp. Smile

this is what I use in my shop (Fulltone )to test all pedals because even the boss adapters go bad
over time.



this as well as any boss/ibanez/maxon or Onespot or Godlyke or Voodoo labs supply is
perfect

sorry I'm tryin to check emails and post here as well between tracking..
(Nocturne Dyno brain is working as snare drum mic pre to pro tools!)

I forgot to mention in the last post that my ac input jack is basic industry
standard other than its actual wire to the circuit board in which I used
20gauge as oppose to 22gauge. Kind of silly overkill but I wanted to
make sure I was taking full advantage of that AC adaptors power supply
to the board.

FWIW.. We are using a heavy duty 9v battery in the Dyno Brain right now
for tracking snare and it will do well for at least 2 hrs.. I share that so you
wont think that youre not gettting the nocturnes full potential if you dont
have an adaptor plugged in. So far it sounds nice n snappy on the
ludwig black beauty snare.
