It‘s now possible to power your 6V, 9V, 12V, and 18V devices from a USB outlet.

Molln, Austria (March 22, 2019) -- Songbird FX has just released their new series of Birdcord voltage converter cables. Plug them into any USB port and they will generate an output voltage of either 6 Volt, 9 Volt, 12 Volt, or 18 Volt.


  • Converts 5V USB to either 6V, 9V, 12V, or 18V DC Voltage There‘s 4 different versions of the Birdcord. Each has a highly efficient voltage converter circuit hidden inside the USB plug.
  • Compatible with Effects Pedals, Keyboards, Amplifiers, and More The Birdcords can power all different kinds of musical devices with a DC jack on the back and a power draw of less than 9 Watts. That‘s basically all devices that run off batteries and many more!
  • Play Your Music Outside! In combination with an ordinary USB power bank, the Birdcords give you many hours of grid-independent and noise-free power. No more one-way batteries! No more hum, buzz, and hiss!

This new series of Birdcord voltage converter cables is the successor to the very popular USB→9V Birdcord, that was released one year ago. A lot of experience and customer feedback ran into its development to ensure highest practicability.

Each of the new Birdcords is currently available at a price of €16.99 (approx. $19) directly from the Songbird FX webshop, where they provide fast and cheap worldwide shipping.

Muse returns to self-producing on Will of the People, an album teeming with formidable anthems that navigate themes of fear, politics, dystopia, compliance, corruption, and other topics concerning the world order.

Decked out in black ninja-like uniforms with mosaic mirrored masks obscuring their faces, Muse opens their current shows with the powerful, sing-along chant of “Will of the People,” the anthemic title track off their latest album. From that song’s infectious shuffle until the very end of the concert’s encore, people are jumping out of their seats, and appear to be completely mesmerized.
