15V Regulated Wall wart for Dirt Bag Deluxe??
« on: May 10, 2012, 12:42:43 AM »
Hi Guys,

1st time post on this site. Thanks to Brian for locating some Dirt Bag boards for me.
Dirt Bag Deluxe builds coming up, and I have a couple of questions regarding power for the MN3005 option.
Everyone seems to use a Road Rage to get the juice required, is this simply because no one wants an odd voltage wall wart on their board, or due to other technical reasons?
Is anyone successfully using an external supply that meets requirements ala more recent DMM reissues?
15V regulated with the right current available I assume for the Dirt bag.
The DMM was 24v down to 15v originally by the looks of things.

I intend to try both chip types if I can get some real 3005s, the first build will be v3205.
If the Road Rage is the only way to go for MN3005 chips, then so be it.

Any help appreciated.

I use a Burkey 6 http://www.burkey.nl/Flatliner%20SIX.html
It runs my Dirtbag, Current Lover and Pork Barrell all at 15v and an MXR EQ at 18v plus a couple of 9v effects.

Thanks for responding.

Burkey 6 looks like a good unit.
I just remembered that Gig Rig do a 9V to 15V thing called the El Paso. Size of a battery.
I have the Gig Rig power supply/generator system already, so that seems an easy way to do it. Plenty of grunt.
Similar idea to the Burkey voltage change, but outside the box solution for the other voltages.

Just a bit more mess on the board.

15V regulated supplies might be hard to find, but 18V unregulated (or even regulated) ones are pretty common. You could build a really nice 15V regulator fairly easily with just a handful of parts using a LM7815 linear voltage regulator. The datasheet has the basic circuit you'd want to make.
