Power supply for multiple M32s/DFAMs/Grandmother?

Postby mattymel » Thu Dec 20, 2018 11:11 am

So I’ve reached the (poor me) point where the number of power adaptors I need to lug around/plug into MULTIPLE power strips is kind of a hassle. Is there a power source (similar to Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2 or anything similar) that works for M32s/Dfams/Grandmothers?

Many of the guitar pedal supplies have selectable outputs and I’m wondering if anyone else has thought of doing this and elminilating a cluster of tangled cables and lugging around 4-5 different adaptors and the multiple power strips needed to fit them all?

You can safely power up to two Mother-32/DFAM units on a single Mother-32/DFAM power supply using a daisy chain.

At your own risk: You can actually power up to three units, but only by connecting the third unit after the first two are powered up. The in-rush current is too great to have all three connected during power-on.

Moog recommends that you don't power more than two on a single power supply, but in some of their live streams you can see them powering three using the aforementioned technique.
