Ernie Ball unveils the miniature Volt power supply

Smaller than the brand’s packs of strings, it should prove a handy solution for pedal power.

Ernie Ball has launched a new guitar accessory: the Volt pedal power supply. The compact unit measures in at just 9 x 5.6 x 2.3cm.

This small enclosure is home to four isolated 9V outputs, so digital or otherwise noisy pedals won’t introduce any extra hum to your board. The outputs can provide up to 300mA of current, enough to power most pedals, even massive digital behemoths like the Strymon BigSky.

The unit accepts a 1A DC in power supply, and also has a power-through output jack for daisy-chaining multiple Volts together if your board needs more than four power connections.

The provided AC adapter is universal, with Ernie Ball noting that “When touring internationally, you can plug the Volt into virtually any outlet – from the US and UK to the EU and China.”

To prevent unplanned pyrotechnics taking place at any of your shows, the volt is “thermally protected,” and features short circuit protection. Similarly, for quick troubleshooting, the unit’s outputs each feature an LED light indicating their status.

Alongside the universal power supply, the Volt ships with five DC power cables – four for connecting pedals, and one for connecting the unit to another.

The power supply will be available in February 2021, and will list for $99.99. Find out more at
