Power up your pressies

Just a quick reminder that if you’re buying synths, guitar pedals, mini amps, retro consoles or any other fun gear that needs power for Christmas, you’re probably gonna need some power supplies.

If you’re buying online, on Amazon or eBay, double-check the product page or listing to see what’s included with the package, see if you’ll need to get a power adaptor separately. For example, lots of the best-selling Yamaha kids keyboards don’t come with one. That’ll cause tears on Christmas morning, not just for the kids, so be prepared.

Ripcord live on kickstarter

⚡ ⚡ Rip it up and start again – Ripcord is live on Kickstarter now ⚡ ⚡

Hey there – Just to let you know our latest power solution for mobile creatives – RIPCORD – is on Kickstarter right now!
It’s the plug ‘n play anywhere USB power cable – you can power loads of gear from any old USB port.

We’ve been selling the small batch version for a couple years now, and thousands of musicians have tried it out.
Danny Davies – engineering, pre-production on New Order’s “Music Complete LP” said:

I used the USB converter with my MacBook Pro; tried it with a Boss MZ-2/Boss TU-3/MXR Badass ’78 Distortion. All worked flawlessly with the Mac’s PSU in or out, out – there didn’t seem to be any significant battery drain.

It’s going good – in the first three hours we’ve raised nearly 1000 EUR, or 4% of our goal.

Please share it round! And if you’ve any questions, comment below, or hit us up on social media!
