A Pedal Junky's Best Friend

"I recently had a chance to try this stuff and I must say I was absolutely floored with amazement."

The wonderful world of stompboxes. What a magnificent thing it can be. For those of us who dabble in the art of noise nothing can be better. For me it is the hunt that attracts me to it all and keeps things exciting. The tweaking and experimenting of different sounds, the blending and pairing of certain pedals, and the extra push or color they can give our tone. But where there's a positive there is always a negative. In the effect pedal world that negative is the hassle of finding a player friendly way of powering our gear.

This is where DC Voltage comes into play, and where the pedal power problem goes away. Imagine not having to deal with dead batteries, power adapters, power strips, extension chords, and the time they're all capable of eating up. This is now possible with DC Voltage's P3 Technology line of products. I recently had a chance to try this stuff and I must say I was absolutely floored with amazement. Let's take a closer look at this gear shall we?

Press Releases

Gaithersburg, MD - The DC Voltage Company announces full production of the P3 Signature Series Joel Weaver "Full Metal Jacket" Distortion Pedal. Known for its intense distortion, Homebrew Electronics suggested this pedal's rugged, shiny red powder-coated finish to indicate the extreme tonal variation and intensity that's available from this melding of distortion circuitry with P3 Technology in a professional-grade pedal.

Under the hood, this pedal has the same acclaimed HBE "Full Metal Jacket" distortion circuit, and has been called "thick, dynamic, over-the-top, and in-your-face." Depending on the setting of the Drive knob, this pedal can go from bluesy and touch-sensitive all the way to a take-no-prisoners, face-melting flame-thrower.

The P3 Signature Series Joel Weaver Distortion Pedal, priced at US $149 and available directly from, includes comprehensive instructions, full support, and a 9-volt battery! P3 Technology allows the battery to remain installed yet fully disconnected, ensuring it does not accidentally discharge and is available in an emergency or when P3 Power is not available.

Remotely supplying abundant, regulated power via standard cables, the patented P3 Technology eliminates 9-volt batteries, wall-warts, and AC power at the pedalboard; halves wiring; stops voltage droop; stabilizes tone; suppresses ground-loops; and makes the dreaded "dead on arrival" a pain of the past.

When set to use P3 Power, P3 Pedals actually reverse the purpose of their DC barrel connectors, making them into 9-volt power sources, perfect for powering stock pedals. This hallmarks the versatility of P3 Technology.

As with all P3 Technology -- called "a pedal junky's best friend," and "a godsend for professional musicians" -- power flows one way and signal the other over a single cable, while power problems and concerns essentially vanish. Jason Robling, President of DC Voltage Company, describes P3 Technology as "the definitive end to pedal power problems."
