Solid as rock with more than enough power to run all my pedals off one unit!
"I am not a fan of changing gear during tours but Decibel Eleven developed one of the best new power supplies and I demand the best. My Hot Stone Deluxe is solid as rock with more than enough power to run all my pedals off one unit! Thanks for a quality product!â€?Â
"I love the versatility in the different voltages and milliamps that it can produce. I highly recommend this power supply.
"I am very satisfied with my Hot Stone Deluxe. It has safely and quietly powered all of my pedals with no problems. I have a bigger board and this meets all of my power supply needs easily. I love the versatility in the different voltages and milliamps that it can produce. I highly recommend this power supply."
"What blows me away is the variable voltage outputs"
"What really blows me away is the variable voltage outputs. The power supply has two outputs that can be easily dialed in for 5V-9V output. This option comes into play in a couple of ways. If you have some kind of oddball, vintage or foreign device that needs a non-standard voltage these outputs can be used".
I've been using the Hot Stone Deluxe power supply and two words...IT ROCKS! Isolated outputs, really heavy duty and EXTREMELY quiet. Iâ€™ve been using one of the main stays in power supply units and as good as the other one was, the Hot Stone Deluxe is better...much better. It powers everything on my board including my high current stuff".
I'm totally satisfied with my two Hot Stone Deluxe and Hot Stone HC. I have three pedal boards with nearly 22 pedals, all chained through some high quality FX loopers.Â I'm a maniac about ultra silent guitar chain and I have to say that my rig is totally quite with power to spare. Also one of the best customer service experiences I ever had!"
"It is dead silent and easily exceeds my needs with room for expansion!
I have my new Hot Stone Deluxe installed in my board and I absolutely love it!! It easily powers my TimeLine, Deluxe Memory Man (24V) and 10 other pedals. It is dead silent and easily exceeds my needs with room for expansion! Thanks so much Decibel Eleven!!
"When I saw how much power and mA it puts out I had to have it!"
"When I saw how much power and mA it puts out I had to have it! I have several power hungry pedals including a TimeFactor, Nova dealy and Line 6 M5 and the Hot Stone Deluxe handles them with ease. No other power supply compares to this one and purchased a second for my practice board. Love it!"
The Hot Stone Deluxe ($250 retail / $179 street) is the flagship in Decibel Eleven's triumvirate of power supplies. It boasts eight isolated output sections: two that deliver 5-9 volts (continuously variable) up to 100mA, two for 9 volts at 100mA, two that are switchable between 9 and 12 volts with a maximum total draw of 400mA. (In other words, you can connect pedals to each section as long as the combined draw is 400mA or less. You can also power 18- and 24-volt pedals using optional cables that combine outputs of two sockets. The Deluxe accomplishes its magic via a toroidal transformer and copious magnetic shielding, all residing within a 2mm steel chassis. A variety of cables and a detachable AC line cord are included.
I tested the Deluxe in the GP studio with several combinations of pedals that brought it up to maximum output, and it handled the strain admirably, with no detectable "ripple", artifacts, or other noise.
If you're a true pedal freak, chances are you have boutique effects that run at 18 volts, high-current digital units and maybe even a vintage germanium-transistor fuzz box (or an accurate replica of one). Putting all these effects on one pedal board can result in a tangled spaghetti of power cables and unsightly wall warts fighting for space on a bulky power strip. Battery power provides its own set of complications, especially if you like the brown-out tones of a fuzz pedal operating on a worn-down carbon nine-volt battery that's putting out only seven volts or less.
The Decibel Eleven Hot Stone Deluxe DC power supply allows various pedals with different power requirements to coexist in a tidy, gig-worthy, noise-free environment. Eight isolated output sections and 10 outlets provide ample power for up to 10 devices, with no hum or interaction between pedals. The 400mA sections are ideal for digital effects, while the two variable outlets can be set between five and nine volts to simulate a worn-down battery.
I connected several of my most power-hungry pedals, and the Hot Stone was absolutely noise free, with not a buzz to be heard. The compact Hot Stone Deluxe keeps your pedal board looking clean and sounding clean, allowing you and your pedals to perform their best. Chris Gill
