Soon I'm probably going to create my own pedalboard as I'm soon going to have a fair few pedals. When my two new ones arrive I will have these:
1) Korg Pitchblack tuner
2) Digitech Bad Monkey
3) Boss NS-2
4) peavey VK footswitch
(possibly get an EQ pedal in the future)

My question is, how to power them.
At the moment, I have two 9V power cables, and that is fine for the moment, but with my new pedals, how should I power them?

I was thinking I could get a daisy chain, and connect them using one 9V power cable, then chain the power to other pedals. Would this be possible/would it damage my equipment?
I know I could get a brick, but well, they're expensive and funds are limited.

Something like this?

If that's the case, you're fine until your pedals' required current doesn't exceed the maximum power output of your supply.
In that case I don't really know if the pedals would just have less headroom or if you would cook the power supply.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I guess spambots are now capable of reading minds.

One Spot power supply with a 5 daisy chain.
Ibanez RGR421EXFM >> Maxon OD808 >> BOSS NS-2 >> Peavey 5150 212

if you already have the ns2 you might as well try it and see if you're getting any noise. if not, sorted.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

isn't a power brick a glorified daisy chain? I mean if he already has an NS2 it's a daisy chain...

Cheers for the answers, i'll probably just kick my tuner pedal out for the moment, and replace it with the bad monkey for the moment while I decide what to do, as I could just grab a cheap power brick for £30-40

Saying that, just found a HB powerplant on gumtree for £15, so might grab that next weekend.

you don't need to, the ns2 will power your pedals with a daisy chain lead.
