    I hate PSU’s.. they are so flimsy and unreliable, so I am looking for a suitable power source which can power:-

    AF12 - 9v 800mA
    Eventide H9 - 9v 500mA
    plus a few 9v 100mA pedals

    Can anyone recommend a suitable reliable unit? The power blocks I see on Amazon don’t appear to suit that combination, nor satisfy the ‘total power’ capacity

    ALSO, Can someone tell me is it ok to use a “current doubler” when connecting to two different current sources? For example a power block may offer a 9v 500mA and a 9v 300mA, is it then possible to combine the two using a current doubler to power the AF12 which needs 800mA?

    Truetone CS7 or CS12 will do the job very well depending on how many outputs you need. Or a CS6 if you have a lower profile pedalboard. You can run the AA from a single output on any of those units.

    I have a AF3, two Eventide H9's, a Dunlop mini wah, and a Boss TU3 tuner & NS2 Noise Suppressor all powered by a GigRig modular power system and 2x Evenflo adapters.

    I used to have eight other Boss power rated pedals powered by the same supply before I sold them to "down-size". It's not the cheapest power option out there but probably the most flexible if you're likely to make regular changes

    OK, thanks for all that, really useful .. so everyone seems to trust True Tone, and I see the C7 has 2x500 mA which would suffice for the AF12 plus more than 2x200 mA which would cater for the H9 both using a doubler .. before I press the button on that, am I right guys?

    Truetone works on total power draw so you won't need any doublers as a single socket will get 800ma to the AA as long as the total draw is below 1600ma ......full details here including a helpful video https://truetone.com/cs7/ - the Truetone stuff is fab and super flexible

    Yep, with truetone it is the total power draw that counts. As long as you stay below that you can exceed the rating on an individual output. Seems weird, but it's fine.

    I have my AA12 powered from one of the 500mA outputs and it's fine. I even called truetone to check this and they told me, "yep no issues".

    Hi everybody, full disclosure I work for Eventide and wanted to chime in with an alternative option since many people don't know about it. We recently upgraded and replaced our PowerFactor to the new PowerMax. I think you'll find it quite clean, compact, lightweight and flexible as far as what you can power.
    • 7 isolated outlets, each offering voltages 9, 12, 15 or 18V
    • High current 660mA @ 9V on all 7
    • Powers multiple high current pedals
    • USB outlet for charging a smartphone or tablet
    • 100V, 120V or 230V mains operation for worldwide use
    • Ultra-low noise, no mains transformer hum
    • Advanced LED monitoring of each outlet
    • Extremely low profile, only 25mm (1 inch) thick
    • 13 Flex cables included
    • Compatible with Temple and Pedatrain pedalboards.
      • Optional GRIP bracket provides dril-free mounting on Pedaltrain.
    • Includes mounting screws and template
    Let me know if you have any specific questions.

    Check out Sweet Foot pedals. He has a Reverb Store. He builds power supply pedals and can customize the current and voltage to what you need. For example, you can order a power with outlets for a 1000mw 9 volt, 400mw 12 volt, and several 100 mw 9 0r 18 volts.

    Thanks for the heads up on Sweet Foot. I only needed something small to power my Amplifires and external tuners, I was able to buy a couple of two-port units with 1500mA and 500mA from him. Reasonably priced, too.
