Many of the most “tone-conscious” guitarists like Eric Johnson, Scott Henderson, Michael Landau, and Josh Smith prefer 9V carbon batteries over a DC power supply because of the current restriction and voltage sag that provides an “amp-like” quality to their overdrive, distortion, fuzz, and wah pedals.
The Vertex Battery Power Supply is designed for such “tone-purists” to use in tandem with a primary power supply for high current/voltage pedals (like a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power), while the Battery Power Supply provides optimized 9V power to your favorite overdrive, distortion, fuzz, and/or wah pedals.
