Power Supplies and Pedalboards
#1
Stompbox 
Just upgraded my travel board with a Truetone 1Spot Pro CS 12 power supply , it has 12 outputs but one of them is 9v AC for those peeps with oddball shit. So 11 pedals on the board and a new thing called complete silence except with high gain plus OD. https://photos.google.com/photo/AF1QipOG...cvXMzU9Our https://photos.google.com/photo/AF1QipON...7lIs6ejjmE Ignore the volume pedal and the a/b boxes and the Ditto they don't travel  to jams.

Well geez y'all have zero interest in power supplies ? Feeling almost human again after a couple days of the stomach flu I just ran it through some testing and it is at least 100% better than it was with the daisy chains and multiple wall warts. Have to run a single 1 Spot to the Ditto without any obvious added noise. I am going to probably put 2 CS 7s on the Classic Pro which is (2) 18v and (12) 9v with 8 of them being 12v or 9v total cost will be $240.00 for 14 pedals getting good , clean power.

Power supplies are way better than daisy chains. Haven't been on a daisy chain in what seems forever.

I got mine long ago -

Voodoo Lab PP2, PPMini, PPAC. (Yes I have a few of them oddball pedals)
Eventide power supply.
Only one I'm using right now is the Eventide I bought for my H9 setup.

9v AC is just a crazy thing to put on a power supply if you ask me ? I did have 2 12v AC pedals I just sold. Newer ones are not using toroidal transformers for power like the Friedman. The CS12 has one for the 9v AC plug though. Have had good results with the daisy chains off the Boss tuners for years but when you hook up 2 or 3 amps and 2 large pedalboards with a/b boxes you get a bunch of noise. I am pretty pleased with this upgrade , just started when I built the board for the guy with the 3 Les Pauls. That one has a Voodoo Labs 4+4 and it is silent again up to really high gain with an OD on. Have to say the Truetone seems to be cheaper and better then a lot of the competition.

Captain Coconut/Paradox Flanger come to mind for me. I think I have a few others.

I picked up a Donner DP-2 back in the spring. 6 x 9v/100ma, 2x 9v/500ma and one each 12v/500ma & 18v/500ma.

So far so good... no noise and no problems. [emoji1303]
