I may not be too
helpful, but I hate to see a question go unanswered
1). I don't understand your question. Are you using three independent switches, LED's etc, or are you tying them all to the same switch?
2). Yes, you can power them all with one jack. Make sure you wire them Parallel
, as opposed to Series
, so that all three circuits get 9V (I'll post a pic in a second here). Here is your problem: while your voltage to each circuit will be the same, the amount of current (amps) will be split between the three circuits. IE, you toggle on effect one, and it works fine, but as soon as you toggle on effect two, you will experience a drop in the output of effect one, because the current that was going solely to effect one a moment before is now split between the two effects. This might be a major drop, this might be a minor drop, it really just depends. The way to counteract this is to use a power adapter with more amps. My tuner runs off a 100 mA adapter, and my fuzz runs off a 2.2amp adapter. Both adapters give off 9V
, they just differ in the amount of current. The thing is, I can use a splitter and power several pedals off the 2.2amp adapter, because each pedal will still get a good ammount of current. While I could
do the same thing with the tuner adapter, I would lose some performance because each pedal wouldn't get as much current. Most pedals work best with at least 100mA or so, at least in my experience.
Best of luck,
Diodeates?? Wasn't he a Greek philosopher? An intellectual foe of Socrates, as I recall, because he could only think one way.
