So the actual power supply itself is not that bad.. It gets the job done for sure. However, the power cord connecting the supply to the wall SUCKS! It uses extremely thin copper wiring and just after rolling it up to pack away, will start to cause it to break. Mine broke not too long after having it and the thing is, you can't find just a replacement cord. I looked everywhere. decent product, TERRIBLE power cord. Be careful with it if you decide to get it.

    Comments about Gator G-Bus-8-US Pedal Board Power Supply:

    Up until just yesterday I would have definitely recommended purchasing this power supply... I play daily, do the occational open mic and a couple times each month will pack up my gear to jam at a friends house.. For about the last 2-3 years everything worked fine, BUT yesterday I plugged in the supplied A/c Adapter to power my pedal board only to find my pedal board had no power... After trouble shooting for an hour with jo luck, I jumped on the net for answers and found more then a fair share of other unhappy owners of this unit with the this same, UNREPAIRABLE PROBLEM. If you purchase this unit, you may like me, have 2-3 good years (often less then that) before the cheap A/c Adapter goes out, and have to buy a power supply all over again b/c there's no replacement A/c adapter available that's compatible with this unit.

        Comments about Gator G-Bus-8-US Pedal Board Power Supply:

        There's two problems with this G-BUS-8.

        First, the outputs are not as isolated as you'd think. The eight 9V outputs are wired directly to each other in parallel. This does not constitute isolation. The only isolation you get, is the 9V outputs from the 18V outputs.

        Second, the 120VAC to 18VDC wallwart adapter uses a proprietary plug to connect to the G-BUS-8 and that plug and wire is very very fragile. It is not durable enough for gigging. It WILL wear out for you, and then you'll discover the fun part; you cannot replace it. Gator does not offer the AC adapter as a repair or replacement item. They expect you to buy the whole unit again. This is an unacceptable business practice.

        Don't buy this. Get the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power ISO-5. It actually does what it claims, and is built to handle an active career in your pedalboard.

        Comments about Gator G-Bus-8-US Pedal Board Power Supply:

        I got this power supply with the Gator GPT-PRO pedalboard and was really excited at first. It has been reliable enough, but my biggest complaint is that the power cord is really wimpy. The connector from the cord to the actual box (distributor?) is small and pops out easily. I've only had it happen at a show once, luckily.

        My other complaint is that the outputs are not isolated. This didn't matter to me at first, but as I learned more about how this could lead to noise in the signal I wanted something better. The description says that it has 1700 mA output, but this is shared by all pedals plugged in which means that it's really nothing more than a glorified daisy chain or 1 Spot.

        It's working, for now, but when funds are available I plan to upgrade to something more professional and reliable.

            Comments about Gator G-Bus-8-US Pedal Board Power Supply:

            I've read negative comments regarding how the cord or plug breaks after time, but I've owned one for years now and have never had a problem with it. I should add that it just sits there, I don't gig or constantly move it around, so that could contribute to its long life. It does its job, and I like the extra 18v outlets if needed.

              This thing can power all my pedals with no problem. Only down side is that I have to buy a converter for my boomerang III looper pedal beacuse it does not come with all the adapters needed for certain pedals. Easy fix tho used a line 6 pedal convertor. But this complaint is due to my lack of research. If you are looking for a power supply that can power a pedal train PRO and not hurt your pocket book to much. This is the way to go!!!

              Comments about Gator G-Bus-8-US Pedal Board Power Supply:

              This is a great beginner power supply, great for smaller boards. But as you upgrade and start buying pedals that require their own power supplies, (line 6, holy grail, etc..) then you will want something better. I would recomend a voodo lab 2, or a t-rex fuel tank. Again, this is for smaller setups...

              Comments about Gator G-Bus-8-US Pedal Board Power Supply:

              This review is in regards to the power supply that came with my Gator GW-GIG Box Junior. I used this power source to run an Electro-Harmonics Small Clone, Aphex Acoustic Exciter, MXR DynaComp and Boss TU-2 tuner. It worked great for about four months and then, while trading pedals between pedalboards one night, the power supply stopped working. All pedals continued to work just fine, I just don't quite understand why it took this long to crap out. Maybe I got a lemon, but but I think that for this price the product should last longer than four months! I enjoyed this pedalboard while I could use it, but if I had it to do over I would just save a little more and get an SKB-45.

              I got this to power my pedaltrain pro board. It works pretty well. There is a little hum in the signal b/c the outs arent isolated like on the Voodoo Labs PP but then again its a lot cheaper than the VL. It serves its purpose so I dig it.
