When designing a professional pedalboard (we will say, quality and can be abused on a tour, all without flinching), the power supply part is often neglected by guitarists and guitar-techs. Big mistake, this one being essential so that your small (or large) family of pedals can coexist on the same board and above all, do it in the best conditions. Indeed, having a good power supply means: limiting buzzes, hiss and other parasites, gaining space by clearing multiple sockets and separate power supplies. And of course, having the best possible sound, because the quality of the current delivered directly impacts the sound reproduction of your equipment.
This is why Yukihiro Hayashi (who makes pedalboards and systems for the biggest Japanese bands) developed the PT-3D. The Free The Tone PT-3D benefits from a construction never seen before for a product of this type. Indeed Yuki has chosen to use 100% Japanese materials from aeronautics. The result? 190 grams on the scale and only 5.5 cm wide! The PT-3D is a featherweight power supply, but rest assured, that doesn't take away from its power. It has 6 regulated, stabilized and filtered outputs (to power your classic OD, boost and distortion pedals) and 2 500mA outputs to power all digital pedals on the market (Strymon, Line6, Eventide, etc.) . These outputs are fully isolated and deliver up to 1A peak. Likewise, each output is protected against short circuits and electromagnetic radiation from the power supply is non-existent.
In the end, the Free The Tone PT-3D will be a benchmark in this area for many reasons. Its extreme miniaturization and its great power allow it to be integrated on any type of pedalboard, mini or large format. Its weight and dimensions offer you the possibility of installing several power supplies on the same pedalboard without weighing it down / loading it. Finally, the quality of the current delivered makes your effects simply sound better and quieter. Essestial!
Note: The PT-3D is made entirely in Japan, with exclusively Japanese components. The packaging includes the necessary DC cables.
