Why no battery?

Dr. Scientist pedals don't use batteries for a few reasons.  We'd rather include more features, powerful pedals use batteries really quickly, and batteries are wasteful and inefficient.

What are the differences or benefits of running Dr. Scientist pedals at 18V?

With most Dr. Scientist pedals there's no difference in the sound or operation at 18V, they'll just be a little louder due to the higher voltage. The Elements is less saturated at higher voltages giving a more clean and open sound.  The BoostBot has more clean boost available at higher voltages.  Higher voltage operation is mainly provided as a convenience.

Do you have any merch?

Sorry, not at the moment, but we're working on it.  Please sign up to our mailing list for updates.

My pedal doesn’t work, what should I do?

If you have any questions or problems at all just email us, info@drscientist.ca, and we'll be happy to help.

What kind of power supply do I need?

You need a 2.1mm barrel jack with centre negative polarity.  You want to use something specifically made for guitar pedals which is regulated and filtered otherwise noise could be injected into your signal chain.  For current (mA) requirements check your pedal's tech specs.
