I was really curious about the ZÜE Engineering Backpack Power supplies. A very interesting, and insanely simple solution and tool to help with power and your pedals. In a nutshell, it’s a 9V battery adapter that plugs directly into your standard 9V DC power supply on the majority of the pedals out there. As I mentioned in the original post, at first I was puzzled. Why wouldn’t you just put a battery in the pedal? Well, it’s not that simple. Where these can come in real handy is when things go bad with your normal power. I’ve had personal experience with this in rooms with crazy power causing massive noise to certain pedals. If I had these, I could have disconnected them from power and easily powered them without removing the pedals from my board. It’s a great tool to have in the ‘just-in-case’ box!
During that post, I was really curious what people would think… and I wasn’t surprised that many of you felt the same was as I. One thing that came up, that I didn’t think about was the micro pedals that only have external power. Having an external battery to power these up can be handy while trying out pedals.. or if you run out of power plugs on your Voodoo Lab power supply.
Now, the great people at ZÜE Engineering gave me 2 full packs. Well, I want one for myself.. that’s for sure, but for the other pack (pack of 3 individual backpack power units), I decided to split it up and those give away. So here are the winners:
Michael P. in Phoenix, AZ
Nathan S. in Opelika, AL
Kirk B. in Auburn, CA
Congrats guys! Units went to the post office yesterday, so they should be there tomorrow! Please come back and let us know what you think!
Please be sure to check out ZÜE Engineering!
Also, speaking of give aways, the Idiot Box Effects Blower Box Give Away is still happening. Don’t miss out on this one!
