This is a great product that does what it says it does.

The end user can also cut off the ends that you aren't using. My pedal board only uses three pedals so I cut off the last five.

The ends are straight and stick out a lot - I mean - a LOT. If you are designing a sleek pedal board and want to hide you cables or tuck them in a little this set will stick straight out almost an inch and is very obtrusive.

The One Spot connectors are 90 degree where this set is straight. It's easier to make the One Spot work where these seem to get in the way.

I kept the set for emergency failures though.

I bought this to power my entire pedal board, i'm running about 6 pedals most of the time. the problem is, the plugs do not fit in my crybaby wah. also they aren't 90º like my onespot. so for me, this was a waste of money. I should have saved up thirty Dollhairs more for joyos power supply.

Good, but not perfect

By Kevin-w9QEL

Comments about Boss PCS-20A PARALLEL DC CORD:

Its a little short, only good if your pedals are in one row. You also need another pedal to use it like the TU-2 or the planet waves tuner. The plastic around the dc jacks is also so wide that it does not fit into pedals that have deep jacks such as a cry baby. It does, however power 8 pedals, which is the most you can easily find. If you feel you have all the things this pedal requires, it's perfect for you. If you don't but need the 8 pedal connecters, just get two 1 spot daisy chains.

Very handy

Comments about Boss PCS-20A PARALLEL DC CORD:

I got this today with my Boss NS-2 to power my effects chain. It's great to have all of my pedals powered with just one adapter and no more 9V! However, it is a LITTLE short, so it isn't very friendly for EHX pedals, I just had to leave one plug empty...no big deal. Also the plug is too wide for my Crybaby and I'm sure some other pedals too. What I did was take a knife and cut away the top of the rubber to expose more of the metal connector. This way, it fit in fine, only a small hassle.It seems a little expensive, but overall a GREAT buy!

Comments about Boss PCS-20A PARALLEL DC CORD:

This cord saved me lots of money on 9v batteries and power supplies. I use mostly BOSS pedals, so I did not have the same problem with application as other users had. It even fit my TS9DX pedal. Before using this cable on a non-BOSS product, you should be sure to check the pedal's specifications to be sure that the +/- are the same as the BOSS powering pedal or you'll ruin your pedal.

High quality, flawed design

By ThatOneBassGuy

from Houston, TX

See all my reviews

Comments about Boss PCS-20A PARALLEL DC CORD:

This daisy chain is only good for pedals that are in line or have the power inputs facing each other. Works great for Boss-style pedals or pedals with power supplies on the top, but with pedals with side power jacks it doesn't work; the length between jacks is just too short! Get the Visual Sounds daisy chain instead.

Pretty much a godsend

By ifightaliens

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Boss PCS-20A PARALLEL DC CORD:

I love it, no more batteries. Only problem was that it didn't fit my dunlop crybaby. I guess that's ok because this is made for Roland/Boss products, but it's still a hassle. I actually had to drill out some of the wah to make it fit. People I've talked to said they do not have this problem with their wahs, but I have a different model. Otherwise I love it. You will enjoy it.

        I have used this product live for and it definately saves space and makes it easy only having to plug in one pedal. It only lasted me about six months, though.

        high quality, poor design

        See all my reviews

        Comments about Boss PCS-20A PARALLEL DC CORD:

        This would be useful if ALL your effects were Boss size with the input at the top of the pedal. But pedals come in different shapes with inputs at different places, therefore the visual sound cord with 90 degree jacks and more cord between the jacks is a better choice.
