Keep your pedals powered all night long with the MXR DC Brick, a revamp of the DCB10. Now under the MXR brand, the new DC Brick features all of the short circuit and overload protection of the original but now handles twice the power, allowing you to use virtually any combination of effects. Additionally, each 9v output has a red LED that illuminates if there is a short so you can quickly identify and troubleshoot any power problems. The MXR DC Brick has eight 9v outputs and two 18v outputs, a change from the DCB10’s seven 9v outputs and three 18v outputs. And of course, the AC adapter and all necessary cables to connect pedals to the unit are included.
no problems with power your effect pedals. just the cable to power the mxr dc brick is too small. it's one of those power chord with a big block at the end of it, which is annoying for live/home use. positive note: when i used a 1 spot with my mxr bass octave deluxe and mxr bass fuzz deluxe, they made a terrible noise. the mxr dc brick eliminated that noise.
Have one of these to keep all of my pedals powered (duh). It's pretty good and I've heard people whine about hum but I've never had that problem myself. Great piece of gear, and great value for money.
I'd say this is one of the most reliable, solid pedals I have. It has 8 9V and 2 18V outs, which at least for me it's plenty. The thing with the LEDs is pretty great. I had a problem once when a pedal was failing the sound for a couple of days and then one day after I moved my pedal board it just stopped working. I noticed that a LED on the brick lit red. I took a look at it and found out that after I moved the board a power cord between the brick and the pedal was almost broken. It never happened onstage but it's a pretty great advantage to have this warning before you play. If you plug your board and see a red light there you can work on it before it fails your song in the middle of the gig. Cheers
