Why does the board itself need to be powered? Usually the boards with inbuilt power supplies suck and aren't properly isolated.

Get a Pedaltrain and a Cioks DC10.

You need an isolated power supply. There are loads. Dunlop DC Brick, T-Rex Chameleon.

They basically stop you getting that annoying high pitch noise you get from daisy chaining.

You don't need an isolated power supply, they're nicer to have and are more efficient at reducing noise and powering pedals, but they're not essential.

Also the DC Brick isn't isolated.

an isolated power supply is pretty much essential when you've got digital pedals or delays in your chain. you'll get a high-pitched whining if it's not isolated.

This is what I meant. That high pitched noise is horrible. I've got a decimator after my pre-amp which does stop it when not playing & I can't hear it in the mix when playing.

nah don't. the powered pedalboards usually have shitty power supplies that aren't isolated. so get a cheaper non-powered pedalboard, and something like a used t-rex fuel tank junior. that'll run you like $60.

I have a wooden box/board (clip off lid) that my carpenter mate made me, with routing for the cables, so cheap to make it's laughauble.

Power Supply, pretty much the best ones you can get hold of are the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2Plus model, powers 8 pedals (each with isolated grounds to avoid ground loop issues) including many non standard (18v and some others), will also power pedals that only run on battery, along with that it also has a "kettle lead" power out on the back. 2 of the power outputs have a "sag" mode where you can reduce the power they put out to emulate a worn battery, giving a different sound to your pedals.

With that I have

Polytuner > Compressor (sag mode) > Overdrive > Noise Suppressor > Amp

Send > EQ > Delay > Return


Personally I don't know of a powered board that can really compete in terms of value, the example above is pretty good but it costs considerably more, isn't all that big and the power supply is not as good as what you could get for the price.

West coast pedal board, I really dig mine and the prices are pretty good for such a nice board.



No affiliation other than the fact that I am a customer.

PedalTrain Pro with a Voodoo Labs Power 2 Plus rocks. I've got two on mine and it will power just about anything you throw on it (though some things may need the proper adapter pigtail, which they sell...Line 6 DL-4 for instance).

Edit: the PT comes with the mount brackets for the Voodoo Labs power supply. And a pretty stout gig bag for the board.

Not to mention those powered boards are bulky as hell, i own a Furman Pedalboard that I retired and it was a heavy mess and when the lid is on it, even though it has wheels like luggage its HUGE and bulky! took up alot of room when jamming/playing live.

The Cioks is better for roughly the same price.

i don't even think he needs something that big. he could daisy chain the wah, sd-1, ge-7, pitchblack, and sonic stomp off one outlet of the fuel tank junior. and then have enough outlets to power everything else individually. the fuel tank junior is deceptively powerful if you're not using high-current digital pedals.

edit: plus it's pretty damn cheap.

I thought the Junior wasn't fully isolated though?

I agree a non-powered board or DIY board with a separate power supply is the way to go.

Great, could you describe how the Cioks DC10 is better? In the event I decide to build another board...always looking for ways to improved the rig. Thanks in advance.
