Got a whole bunch of stuff coming for the recording room and the guitars. First round made it in today.

Been super curious about running my pedlulz on a rechargeable supply rather than right off the wall. Rumor is that cleans up a lot of noise issues if you have crappy power. And believe me, I have crappy power. So I grabbed a couple of these here thing-a-dobbers to try out. Reviews make it sound probably they'll work well. Someone said he's running two 500ma draw multi-effects boards for about six hours a charge, so my piddly boss pedals shouldn't be too harsh on them.

Also got a nice Furman rackmount power conditioner for the recording setup. That's been wanted for a good long while. Hopefully it'll help quiet down the mic preamps.

And some mic cables 'cause mine seem to constantly wander off.

And then a whole bunch of rack rails and screws to finally stop the floating mass of rack equipment that tumbles around the desk from time to time in my clumsier moments. Now I'll knock over multiple rack units all at the same time! HA HA!

I'm most excited to try out the battery power supplies. It'll be nice to ditch the nine volts and wall warts for everything but my 12 volt pedals.

Oh, almost forgot, also got a set of Wilkinson compensated saddles for the tele.

Later this week/early next I have a whole round of computer upgrades circling in. Hard drives, memory, cable clamps for desk mounting, desk mounted monitor stand, 24" curved monitor, cables to move some components around the desk, wireless keyboard and mouse, new wireless adapter that should run at something faster than manually carrying packets from the router, and some little bits and pieces. Gonna need time to get everything up and running. Putting in for some time off to get this shit taken care of.

I'll pop up my thoughts on these power supplies when I get a chance to try them out. Looking like Friday or sometime over the weekend at the moment before I can spend any real time back there. Damn busy life. :facepalm:

Nice man, sounds like a shit ton of nice upgrades.

Me personally, I would completely forget that the pedal supply was rechargeable, and there’d be a metric fuck ton of ‘WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH ALL THIS SHIT IT WAS WORKING FINE LAST WEEK’ moments.

This is why I bought two of them. One's charging at the desk, one's in rotation. Everything stops working I'd have to be completely blind to miss the one charging and about 30% of the time I'm not completely blind so I'll :idea: and swap 'em.

Not exactly sure what I was expecting, but these fuckers is tiny:

Appreciate the dry/cracked winter skin. :cop:

Barely takes up the same space as a boss pedal, and less than an inch thick.

According to the manual, a seven hour charge could last from twenty to fifty hours depending on draw. Obviously if you're trying to supply the entire universe it won't last long, but a few standard 9 volt pedals it should take a while to wear down. Wish something like this existed back when I was still playing shit clubs on the regs.

They can also operate as a standard USB charger for phones and such. Handy. Currently charging up. They say let it reach full charge before first use, then after that you can charge it while using it if you want. :idk: Cool little gizmos.

I wonder if that would reintroduce the noise you are trying to get rid of?
If it still keeps it out - this could be worth it just to isolate your pedals from crappy power.

I bought a Furman power supply last year and immediately noticed how it cleaned up the sound.

Yeah, clipless, I'd guess when plugged in you'd still have line noise.

I've got the furman sitting right here ready to be plugged in this weekend when I can tear apart the desk and get everything re-arranged. Been wanting to do that for ages and finally decided to just do it. Stupid of me not to at this point.

Yeah I use something similar (Big Joe Lithium Powerbox) for my live rig. Works great, never had an issue with it.

Never mind the dry/cracked winter skin.

How can a 7 foot tall 400 lb. guy have such small hands?

:confused:

He's that tall? I didn't get that impression from the heavy metal snow shoveling picture.

He shrinks when he gets out into the cold.
