OVERVIEW

Properly power your 18V pedals with an adapter you can count on.

The Dunlop ECB-004 18V DC Adapter is a quiet, well-regulated power supply that powers most effects pedals that run on 18 volts. With 500mA of current, the ECB-004 can even run power supplies such as the DC Brick. 2.1 mm by 5.5 mm positive barrel with negative center.

Note: Be sure to check the label on the power supply to ensure compatibility with your effects pedal. ECB-004 adapters manufactured before summer 2011 had a current rating of 150mA and are not compatible with the DC Brick. Newer ECB-004 manufactured summer 2011 or later, which are marked with a current rating of 1A (500mA), can safely be used with the DC Brick.

I npirchased the adaptor for use with my MXR EVH117 flanger. Worked perfectly until I realized another pedal in my daisy chain was my achilles heal. The Danelectro DC-1 Cool Cat Chorus eats through batteries like pacman at a blue ghost benefit for the blind. Just for kicks I tried the ECB-04 on it and shazaam, no heal to hold us back. Just purchased another and both are still going strong.

Good for my OCD

By Magdiel Cordero

from Glen Burnie, MD

Comments about Dunlop ECB-004 Barrel 18V Adapter:

The size is the unique bad thing. But the perfomance for my OCD Fulltone is good, the chamge of voltage.
Excellent for my OCD Fulltone, but the size is too big to coenct with others pedals.
The value is good, no problem.

Add headroom and more dynamics to your overdrives.

By LoFiBrian

from Ohio

See all my reviews

Comments about Dunlop ECB-004 Barrel 18V Adapter:

Overall im impressed dunlop can offer a regulated 18v supply so cheaply.
I got this for my Barber Unlimited overdrive. Most overdrives/distortions that are overbuilt and can handle the overvolatge benefit from it. I originally tried this with the Voltage doubler cable in my T-rex fueltank jr. with my Timmy pedal and was astounded by the effects of going from 9v to 18v. more Clarity, less compresson, more headroom. overall more amplike.

With the barber the dynamic range and overall sag was reduced and now with the internal trimmers set to taste it sounds even better.

I will warn you that this will toast some pedals that dont have the specified parts inside to handle the voltage increase. You should read the specs or contact the manufacturer to confirm you can do this trick.

another plus is this is regulated to give the pedal 17-19 volts. whereas other cheaper adpaters may reach up to 14-22 volts depending on the wall port and the adapter itself. so I know this thing going to work well.

The bad part is its the same quality made in china adapter everyone has. I dont think it would survive consisitant tangle and mangle of gigging. but plugged in for at home playing it should last for some time. If Fulltone came out with a 18v adapter like their 9v models I would invest in one. but for now this is the cheapest and best option for giving overdrives 18v's

      Comments about Dunlop ECB-004 Barrel 18V Adapter:

      Purchased for a Catalinbread DLS after their manual recommended this product. At first it was fine but about a month in I noticed I couldn't turn my gain up to full without getting some strange noises from the amp. At first it wasn't a problem, I never set my gain this high, but after three months the Dunlop unit itself started producing a whine and with it accompanied a considerable amount of noise in my signal.

          Great For Diamond Compressor

          By Zach Morgan

          from Illinois

          See all my reviews

          Comments about Dunlop ECB-004 Barrel 18V Adapter:

          Overall, if you're looking to improve the performance of your pedals, and your pedals can withstand/accept an 18 volt power supply, you can't go wrong!
          I bought a Diamond Compressor, which can run on a power supply between 9 and 24 volts. There are many ways to wire those voltage configurations up, but this is by far the easiest. It's a very quiet supply. Best of all, it greatly increased the headroom and lowered the noise floor of my Diamond Compressor. You would be hard pressed to find a better compressor than the Diamond running on a ECB-004. This is it; simple and easy with increased performance from your pedals.
          I give this an 8 because although it's performance is outstanding, the plastic/outside of the unit is very light and cheap. It doesn't feel like it could withstand a whole lot of abuse. Then again, that all comes down to how well you take care of your gear.
          Once again, I give this an 8 not due to it's performance, but because of the cheap plastic. I think the price could be a bit cheaper, but overall it's a pretty fair and standard price point.

              I use this adapter to power a Seymour Duncan Shape Shifter up to it's maximum potential. I questioned using it at first because the box has AC wrote on the front, on the adapter itself, and even on the Dunlop website says AC; but, every place selling it says it's DC. I called Dunlop, and they said that they get that question asked all the time, and that they would have to update their website. He then assured me that it was DC power. He said it's AC from the wall converted to DC to the barrel. On the side of the box does indicate this I guess. It's been good so far. I can also use it to power an older Dunlop 535Q that operates on 18VDC only. I'm very glad I found this.

                Comments about Dunlop ECB-004 Barrel 18V Adapter:

                I bought this to use for an old Ibanez AD80 delay pedal (rather than the two "battery adapter" connectors I had going), and once I got a barrel plug to 3.5mm adapter (one spot), it's worked great. Until the other guitarist in my band borrowed it to use on his Echo Dream 2 (with stupendous results). I'd buy again -- in fact, I may have to if I don't get it back.

                                  Works good powering my 18V pedal.

                                  I bought this to power my Cmatmods Brownie, Fulltone OCD & Barber Direct Drive.
                                  So far, I haven't heard the noise or hiss that some people mentioned in their reviews.
                                  Not a drastic change from the 9V power but there is an improvement in the overall sound from
                                  my pedals when I switched to 18 volts. It added a little more clarity as well as increased headroom
                                  as most folks will describe. It's a power supply, and it does one job only. That is, to power the pedals reliably, consistently and noise free. And for that, I gave it high marks.
