Many players like the sound of their pedals as the power starts to sag. Now you can have the same effect with standard DC power supplies. The Saturnworks dying battery pedal emulates the effect of a dying 9v battery on analog (not digital) pedals by dropping the power linearly from 9v down to 0.75v, and anywhere in between. Experiment with the Saturnworks dying battery simulator to see what kind of crazy sounds your pedals can make when they’re running low on juice.
This pedal works with standard ‘Boss’ style center-negative or center-positive 2.1mm power supplies. It works best with isolated power supplies–otherwise it will drop the voltage across all pedals on the same power supply. The pedal includes a spare power patch cable, so no need need to source that extra component.
The version with a switch allows you to have two different power levels: one with full power and the other at a lowered voltage of your choosing. This allows you to have two different sounds from your device with a click of a switch with no mods required!
The Saturnworks dying battery pedal is hand crafted with top quality components including:
- A sturdy 1.5″ x 3.5″ cast aluminum enclosure
- Military spec silver-plated wire
- An MXR-style control knob
All Saturnworks pedals are covered by a 1-year warranty against defects in workmanship.
