Here is a pic of my setup: http://i40.tinypic.com/f3xqvc.jpg

Gear:
Guitar: Epiphone Les Paul

Amp: Marshall MG 250 DFX 2*12

Pedals: Boss Super Shifter PS-5, Boss Distortion DS-1, Boss Metal Zone MT-2, Marshall stock pedal

Misc.: 3 9V Adapters, Power Cord


Whenever I plug my adapters into my pedals to play, it creates a high pitch noise heard through the amp. When I unplug them and just use battery power, they work fine. I'm not exactly sure how to fix this problem. Can anyone help me?

Get a new power supply. Onespot is pretty cheap.

I did a google search on that and a lot of people are complaining about noise. Is there something I can buy to reduce the noise I'm currently hearing?

Voodoo labs is expensive.

Why don't you pickup the Boss PSU and a daisy chain? At least I know that's well affordable.

Seconded. Daisy chain them together. I would recommend the Onespot or Powerall but not the Boss brand one, I've seen half a dozen die (they sound fine though).
You need to use very clean power for audio applications, I don't know what kind of adapters you're using but if they're really cheap they'll introduce all kinds of noise.

So you recommend this? http://www.google.com/shopping/product/10202081694911809536?hl=en&q=Powerall%20power%20supply&um=1&ie=UTF-8&bav=on.2,or.r_qf.&bvm=bv.46751780,d.eWU&biw=1360&bih=639&wrapid=tlif136910618258810&sa=X&ei=F-eaUeaDKoXY9ASdsoGYDQ&ved=0CGAQ8wIwAQ

ive found that boss pedals really only like boss power supplies. lol a few of mine made feedback when plugged into other brands power supplies. switched them to boss products and the noise was gone.

It's been said but I'll just do emphasis because Visual Sound's One Spot is really good.




If your budget ever increases get a Fuel Tank or a Pedal Power though.
Pedaltrain is working on an amazing power source but it hasn't been released yet. I'd definitely check it if available by then.

Damn

I can find the daisy chain cords: http://www.bossus.com/gear/productdetails.php?ProductId=20

And the power supply: http://www.bossus.com/gear/productdetails.php?ProductId=911

But not the power supply that can plug into the daisy chain

=[

Man it's so tempting to get the one spot. It's a lot of bang for your buck. I googled it though and the reviews are very polarizing. You either get a lot of noise or none.

It's only noisey if you have a high amount of pedals and at the supply limit.

Make sure the highest current draw are closest to the power supply.

I think you will be a ok with your pedals. You only have 4. The 1spot has a high current limit.

If you're going to base your purchase based on online reviews, then you're going to have to spend more money. Go for the Onespot, if it doesn't do the trick then nothing cheaper than an Iso 5 will.
