Harley Benton PowerPlant

Power AdapterEverone buys pedals one after the other, but then sooner or later the question is: How do I power them? Batteries are always empty (and expensive, as well as they're not environmentally friendly) - and the power strip with 5 power supply units also doesn't look really sexy in the pedal case. For guitarists who love their many colourful stomps and always want to have them around, the Power Plant is just the right thing.

Eight (!) 9V outputs provide a total of 500 mA, plus a 12V AC and a 12V DC output for the most exotic of power consumers; with that you are prepared for all eventualities.

A whole bunch of adapter cables available in various sizes is included. Its the optimal solution for most pedal cases at an extremely affordable price!

  • With 8 x 9V DC (500 mA), 1 x 12V DC (500 mA) and 1 x 12V AC (500 mA) outputs
  • Incl. cable set (length of black cables about 50 cm, colored cables about 30 cm)
  • Dimensions: 16.5 x 8.5 x 5.0 cm

Note: The polarity changes using the supplied cable extensions!

Why pay if you can get Harley Benton stuff.

30.03.2017
I would call it PowerTank not PowerPlant - it is surprisingly very well built, almost like tank. Second power supply that I have in my hands from Harley Benton brand and it is same as Junior model - looks very solid. It is also very accurate and small which makes it affordable to use with almost all pedalboards both beneath and underneath pedal surface.

Such small box has 8 outputs by 9V each and they all are isolated that means that you can safely power such pedals like fuzz, distortion and compressors without worries that they could enhance additional noises. 12V output comes handy for pedals that need more voltage for their headroom. There is also one AC output. Overall such set provides enough power outputs for more than middle sized pedalboard. All necessary power patch cables are also included.
It has main power cable that is possible to unplug and replace with longer one. Connector is pretty much standard. Separate power switch is also added so it prevents supply from jumping voltages during switching on/off. Unfortunately there are no switch between 220/110 Voltages but it is no worries if you are located in European region. Power indicator LED on front panel maybe not the brightest one but you can easily see when it is on.

To sum up I can say that there are almost no difference between power supplies under maybe 150 EUR - they all are almost equally made so the affect they do on sound. And if there are no difference, why pay more if you can get some Harley Benton stuff.

Power to the pedals!

Josh H., 15.05.2013
Ah Harley Benton, I'm finding a new addiction to their products. Reliable and to the point. I always have huge admiration for any company that can offer me an option that just works and this is another example of such a thing. The Harley Benton PowerPlant is a cheap and sound option for any musician that wants the constant ring of their chorus or BAWLLS of their octave. Over the past few gigs I've used with it I have only 2 problems with it.

1. It's to damn big
2. Renders my entire board useless when I plug my EHX Bass Balls in (However I think that is due to the old wiring of the pedal due to it being from the 70's).

The first point is basic but i feel is vaild. I have this mounted on my Gator pedal board which I know has it's own power supply purpously designed for the board but the price difference between the 2 boards obviously made me sway towards the HB. The size has it taking up 1/4 of my board which leaves little space to expand with new pedals which I do want to aquire. how can this be sorted? Well if you have a board like I do then if the supply was slimmed down a touch it would have fit comfortably at the back of my board which would have been ideal. I small change but can make a huge difference between 5 pedals and 7.

Finally the second point isn't really an issue by any means or a deal breaker but more of a warning that the HB PowerPlant might be incapable of correctly powering older pedals such as my EXH Bass Balls. So be mindful if you do order this if it will work.

In a nut shell the Harley Benton PowerPlant is another one of those little musical mircles that just works! It comes with a healthy suppy of power cables and a european kettle lead (Oh thats another point, Thomann should list an option for the product to come with a UK kettle lead instead of the standard European one). Be mindful when ordering if you mainly use older pedals. If you use modern EHX, Behringer and/or Boss you should be more than happy with this. I recommend this to any friends with a huge pedal board and loads of new pedals as for my friends with small boards and a taste for the vintage effects I say look else where. Even though this supply may work fine for Daft Punk it hasn't got a whole lotta love for Lepplin.
