I have a daisy chain power supply. You know the one that has the long wire that lets you hook like 7 pedals up from just one outlit. Well for awhile now its been making this whinning tone. Like a really high pitched whistle. Well i couldnt figure out what was making the sounds well one day i put my ear up to the plug part of the daisy chain itself and i found the sound is coming from it and somehow going though my amp. I've tried plugging it up to a ton of different sockets and it still does it. so am i doing something wrong or is it broken? also would you suggest getting another one or are they all crap?

it could be a build up of noise in the wire, you could buy a noise gate or a more expensive power supply

i like visual 1 spot adapters, they are quiet.

and i wouldnt buy a pedal to try to quiet a daisy chain.

yea i tried using a noise gate but its not a natural noise or anything like that. Im pretty sure somethings wrong with the plug. Maybe im trying to draw to much energy through it?
#5
Wait.. so it's the whole chain making the noise? Like if you unplug a pedal or two does it go away? ...and try unplugging all your pedals individually.
#6
well i noticed the whinning gets lower when i unplugged a few pedals. Thats where i got the idea i was drawing too much though it.
#7
Gotcha. It could be the wall socket or adapter or something. You will probably have to get a different power supply though.
#8
ok thank you i will try that
im sure its not the wall socket cause i moved it around
but i will try a new power supply

You're not truly playing guitar unless you know theory.
