Hey,

So at the moment I'm using an old big transformer to power my pedals, and I'm wondering what my best option would be if I decide to upgrade my power supply.

Pedals are in my sig,

Thanks.

either an SKB powered pedalboard, or the Dunlop DC power brick. Also the Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2.

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

If you're going to use the Power Brick, you'd be better off just getting a One Spot. they do the exact same thing, just the Power Brick is neater, and costs a hell of a lot more.

You're best bet would likely be the Pedal Power 2.

I should mention I've got a homemade board which I want to keep using, so no powered boards for me..

The VL seems pricey. Uk it's £150, which I think is more expensive than any of my pedals...

I may buy it, if there were no cheaper options. I'm looking at the GigRigs stuff, it seems cool but I can't see me wanting any more pedals, or if I did it would be replacing my chorus or whatever.

Also, I don't expect for the power supply to be able to power my Whammy or EQ, but it'd be a nice touch..

Thanks guys.

Cheap in comparrison to? It's £117 here, and the VLPP2 is £149. £32 and you get the "best".

Pedal power 2 all the way. Built like a tank, very neat and tidy whilst creating no unwanted hum/noise through the pedals.

One question;

I don't really plan on getting more pedals (But GAS strikes when you least expect it...) so what would you do if you get more than 8 pedals? Using a chain would mean the isolated outputs are worthless, and buying two seems a bit over the top?

Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2 is the best one out there for the price IMO.

Don't get the DC Brick, it's an overpriced POS. The One Spot is a really, really good value if you want to keep it on a budget. If you gig a lot, I would go for the Voodoo Labs, but if you're just playing around the house, the One Spot is more than adequate.

I think it would be ok to daisy chain a few if you're over a pedal or two. The problem arises when you start daisy chaining loads. You'll run into lots of noise issues then.

Honestly, buying another isolated output is useless unless you have 3 or 4 extra pedals that need powering.

I have the PP2 and 18 pedals.
So I do have to daisy chain a few.
If you have more than 8 pedals, you may need to experiment as some pedals don't do daisy chaining power well.
