Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone had some info on 9V power supplies as I mine seems to have vanished. I've got a big muff pi, RC-2 loop station, morley bad horse wah, and some other boss pedals.

Guitar center wants $25 for their cheapest one! Anyone know of a chain store where I can pick it up cheaper?

Thanks!

that's pretty cheap. keep in mind that a crap power supply can screw up your pedals.

The 1-spot is the best possible at a low budget. $25 is about right, compared to how the next level up are iso bricks which cost past $100. Just make sure you don't wreck your pedals with wrong mA ratings, reverse polarity, etc. Make sure you get a chain for all your pedals and nothing more. Generally you won't exceed the mA ratings.

A lot of people are saying 1Spot, but know this. If you plan on getting any kind of volume out of your amp, be prepared to turn off your gain channel whenever you aren't playing. Those things will make a dirty channel sound really noisy, even with a gate. I have one, and everyone I know that either has one or used to have one all agree that they are noisy. If you can swing it, save up for a Voodoo Lab, but if you need one quick, get the 1Spot and start saving for a Voodoo Lab. I know that I'm tired of switching to the clean channel between songs.

I got one for like $7 from China on Ebay. Worked perfectly for over a year now and my rig is very quiet even with tons of gain from my E1

You will do good with the 1 Spot first, and once you have enough budget you can get a Voodoo Lab.

Just "9V 2A supply" should bring some up. I run my GT100 off one and it works just fine.


Edit: Try to find one with the right mains connector. The adapters are always shit.
