hey all,
im about to build a pedal board, and i want to know the best way to power my pedals.
i want the cheapest way unless that means a whole bunch of extra noise and such. i know next to nothing about power supplies and such, so any help is appreciated.

i will have the following pedals on the board.

Fulltone OctaFuzz
Clyde McCoy clone wah
Univibe clone
TS 808 clone
Danelectro Cool Cat Drive

i would also like have room to grow with whatever powersupply i choose. as in, if i were to purchase a new pedal sometime, i dont want to have to buy a new power supply.

thanks for the help in advance.

one spot + daisy chain will run you $25 and you'll be set until you need more than 5 pedals at a time, at which point you but another $5 daisy chain.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite

daisy chaining causes lots of noise issues, does it not?

A buddy of mine got a $30 Boss PSA-120 adapter and for another $10 got a daisy chain to power up to 8 pedals. The Boss adapter is specifically designed for that purpose so there's just as much power for the pedal at the end of the line as the first one in. No noise issues I'm aware of.

Or your next pedal could be a Boss TU-2 tuner and get a daisy chain. That would serve 3 purposes; tuner, power supply & as a bypass to cut your signal when needed.

Some people say they do, some don't. I use a One Spot, and I don't have any problems with noise. It may depend on the number and types of pedals you're using. I run 5 on mine.

some good info here:

I use one of the ones he advises against, but now i'm scared...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
