Hey guys, I'm finally going to start spending some money getting some of the effects I've wanted.. How do you power yours? I've heard people say get a power brick, but that's pretty expensive.. What about something like

Is that called daisy chaining? Anyways, please educate me a bit.
Thanks & Godbless .

I use the 1 spot stuff, it works fine. Sure there is a bit more noise than without it, but its not that noticeable. I guess if I had a big nasty high gain amp it might be a problem though.

that`s daisy chaining but using something like a dc brick or voodoo labs pedal power will distribute the power evenly to all pedals an be noiseless

I use Energizer rechargables for ultimate isolation and the ability to have battery sag.

I think I got a pack of 2 of them, including the charger, for $22 and got the extra two 9V for $10.

Edit: Battery sag is when the battery starts to get around 25% power or so and has a voltage drop, making a distinctive effect on your sound.

Some power supplies have a switch that lets you emulate this. I think the Voodoo Labs one is one of them.

Nice, this is what I'm going to do, seems a lot less messy (with cords and stuff) and cheaper.
