...To power my pedals? I'm guessing no seeing as nobody really does it and it's a lot cheaper.

You can get some adaptors with removable jacks and I'm asking if I could just connect a daisy chain and plug in?

Try it, I used to use a generic adaptor, just make sure the voltage and polarity are set right.

It depends on the mA output of the adapter your using.

Will there be bad consequences if it doesn't work?

Yeah, I forgot about this. Make sure you have enough output from your adapter.

If you have enough output, correct voltage and polarity, I can't see a reason why it wouldn't work.

Sounds simple enough but google 'ground loop' and 'guitar pedals' - or I'm guessing a search of this site would do.
Simple daisy chaining introduces unwanted noise/hum.

This. If you've got a 9v adapter with appropriate polarity, then the only concern is the current draw. You add up your pedals' usages and make sure the adapter can handle it.

In addition to the above suggestions, you really should consider one made for pedals or other audio equipment.
IME, generic ones (at least those that Radioshack sells) are noisy as fvck.

If it doesn't work, you could always pick up a Visual Sound 1-Spot. I use one and it powers all my pedals.


Probably not the best cable you can buy for pedals but it works and it's kind of cheap.

I've done that once, and it got noisy. Trying it again later this week with a better adapter which is advertised specifically as 'does not introduce any noise.' We'll see.

My friend used a basic 9v power supply to power at least three pedals and there was no added noise (at least I didn't notice any noise). I think you just have to make sure you have a good quality power supply.

Robbgnarly is right. Daisy chaining doesn't always introduce unwanted noise/hum. I've powered 5 pedals with a daisy chain from one Boss PSA-230 for years without a single problem.

I use a 2 amp regulated power supply that I got from a local electronics surplus store. Probably originally powered a Sony camera. The key to not getting noise is using a regulated supply. Unregulated outputs a higher voltage with low loads and have ripple on the output. The ripple probably increases when you increase the load.
