Ask a question:


Which pedalboard power supply can I use with Le Preamp series ?

Solution

 

When assembling a pedalboard with one or several Le Preamp, choosing the right power supply is very important. There are lots of good pedalboard power supplies out there, but not many can deliver the amount of current the Le Preamp series require to work properly (this current is due to the use of a tube powered with high voltage).

 

You will find below a list of a few pedalboard power supplies that could be used to power one or more Le Preamp pedals, along with a Torpedo C.A.B., and other pedals. Please note this is only for indication purposes : this document can in no way replace the user manual of the mentioned power supplies (which can be submitted to change), and does not substitute to the Le Preamp series user manual and specifications.

 

The specifications of the Le Preamp series power supply are listed here.
