donbenjy Posted July 19, 2006 Report Share Posted July 19, 2006 Hi, I've just bought a DB Lemon Fuzz homemade pedal, and when I try to plug it into my 9V DC power brick thing along with another pedal, the whoel chain goes dead! The fuzz works fine on its own, or in conjunction with battery powered pedals, just not when all are run off the same PSU! I can plug the fuzz and anything else in and stick something in each input, and they work, but as soon as I connect it to any input/output of something runing off the same PSU, it dies! Apparently, the designer says that it needs to be run on a seperate PSU, but it runs on a 9V battery so why not 9V DC? I obviously can't get hold of a wiring diagram, but I can describe the connections to the power jack if needed? Can anyone offer any suggestions to why this happens? I was thinking maybe the polarity of the jack is reversed? in which case i'd just need to move a few wires on the power jack... I've emailed the guy but no reply yet, so i thoguh i'd ask here! Would something like the VZex power plate, that converts a battery snap into a 9v plug thingy work? Cheers in advance for any help guys!
