To start things out, I know next to nothing about the nature and fuction of electronic components.

I currently have 5 pedals, and will probably have at least 1 or 2 more after Christmas, and I'm gonna build my own pedalboard, but I don't want to spend a bunch of money on a power supply.

I've heard that it's possible to daisy chain (well, not technically "daisy chain") pedals together and run multiple pedals off of one power supply. How do I do this? I know you have to make sure that all of the pedals have the same type of grounding (correct term?). I'm pretty sure that they do (I have 3 BOSS effects, a Morely Dual Bass Wah, and a Blackout Effectors Fix'd Fuzz V3, which all have the little pictures of a negative sign going into a positive sign).

So how do I do this? What things will I need?

The resonant frequency of the clitoris is too low for the guitar players to take care of.

look up the Visual Sound 1 Spot and the corresponding chain cable

A wall wart power supply and a daisy chain. Thats all you need.
Most cheap power supplies aren't regulated or filtered though, so they can add a bit of noise.

I already have a power supply, so is there something where I can just buy the daisy chain? Would that be all I need?

I wouldn't recommend using a different power supply than the 1spot. Most power supplies you buy for a pedal are rated at 300-500 milliamps which, depending on what pedals you are using, will only run 2 or 3 pedals.

The VS 1 Spot is rated at 1.7 Amps (or 1700 Milliamps) which is why it works the way it does. Also, a lot of the other power supplies don't have filters like the 1spot has

Ah I see. So would A 2000mA power supply be fine? It won't like override my pedals? (although that may result in some sweet tones ) Even though I'd be running less pedals than there are jacks?
