So what are 2.1MM DC Solderless Plugs anyway?

November 30, 2016

So we've been asked the above question quite a few times, by friends, family, non-musicians, etc. And since no one else is making this kind of plug, even guitar players might not know what it is or that it even exists.

Simply put, we have taken the standard 2.1mm x 5.5mm DC power plug/cable, which usually plugs between the power supply (Voodoo Lab Pedal Power, etc.) and an effects pedal on a guitarists pedalboard, and made it solderless and cut-to-length.

Since most of us have quite a few pedals, the standard DC power cables (which are normally 18" in length) can create quite a mess once the extra cable length is zip-tied or otherwise knotted together. With our DC Solderless plugs and custom cable, you can easily cut the cable to length and assemble a plug on each end within a few minutes.

Here's an example.

The top photo shows the standard pre-packaged cables bundled to the left of the Tuner. The bottom photo shows our DC Solderless cables, with no excess, routed to each pedal.
