so i was wondering if the dc brick was the best way to power my pedals, i have 3 pedals running on 18v and 6 on 9...but ive been reading reviews on harmony central about how when you power 18v pedals, there is audible hiss and hum, ive got the mxr flanger and kfk eq, so im wondering if anyone has had experience with this, or any other recomendations?

Try the BBE supa charger, TREX Fuel Tank for the Voodoo Labs one. They're a bit more expensive but worth it.

well i wouldnt describe it as "brick", more like brownish wet cement...a brick would hurt...hold on wait a second wat are we talking about?

okay seriously now, the brick is fine, but when i found the one spot power supply all my problems were solved. it's about thirty bucks and you can power all of your pedals. idk, about the 18v ones though.

The brick is a good unit. It's just as quiet, or sometimes better, than having the individual adapters. I suppose that means that if an 18v pedal is noisy, it's because of the pedal and not the brick. That's just in my experience though, other people might have had weird things happen.

I use the one spot as well, for gigging and the dives we play, just made sense.

I've heard the Dunlop brick is noisy, whereas the the BBE is a bit better.

The Voodoo labs one is used by professionals worldwide so make of that what you will.

I'm sure it all comes down to how picky you are though, there's a pic floating around of John Mayer's pedal board and he's using a DC Brick.
