exceeded all expectations.I have been gradually putting together a pedalboard with the effects that I need and love. I have a Boss ME70 that I just love and I recently acquired a suite of (sweet) pedals from TC electronic. - the Corona chorus, the Spark Booster, the Mojomojo and the incredible Flashback X4. The effects possibilities are awesome and I can say my Tele, Strat and Gibson ES137 sound pretty cool. However, I had a big problem with hum, buzz, and popping that was really starting to concern me and was not going away - even when I put in 9 volt batteries in the smaller units and used all separate wall warts for the others. I was also using a One Spot and it was pretty darn noisy. So with some trepidation, I talked to my sales rep (Mike S, God bless him) and we agreed on this new puppy from Voodoo. New as in there were no reviews yet. It was not cheap and my wife was thinking of cutting up the credit cards. Long story short, I got it last night, tested it out on the floor with all my gear and then installed it into the Pedaltrain 2 board using their supplied hardware. The unit must be a bit thicker than the other Voodoo stuff, and so the mounting brackets had to deform a little as I screwed in the self tapping metal screws, but no problem - it is as solid as a tank. Once you install it that way you can't see the labels that tell you what voltage or amperage the outputs are, so before I installed it I used my wife's nail polish to mark the 9V 400 ma outputs red and the 100 ma ones lavender. Cute. (I have no 12 volt pedals.)
Ok - the good part. The buzz, hum, pop and clicks are all gone. I mean gone. I do most of my playing through headphones and I can hear every nuance. This gear is quiet until I tell it to scream or cry or echo. I never expected this much of a solution to my problem and boy am I pleased. Voodoo has made a very high quality device that works better than I ever could have imagined. Congratulations to Voodoo!!
