I,ve never used many pedals in my rig but I bought a couple to try out for a total of 5 (including my tuner). I also bought a power supply, the only one available at my local shop, called a SignalFlex P 9. Trouble is when I use the power supply I get a terrible 60 cycle hum which makes the gain channel almost useless (yep it,s that loud). with wall warts I seem to be OK. The concensus on the HC reviews of this device seem to bear out the same problem. A couple of folks have got around it by using a 3 prong to 2 prong adapter to plug it in (someting to do with the amp and power supply using the same ground). I am going to try this but if it does not work it,s going back and I will be looking for an inexpensive power supply for my peadals. I,ve heard good things about the One Spot. Any opinions or other tales of hum hell from power supplies?

I used to use batteries in everything, but I recently started using a One Spot with the 5 output daisy chain.

It works great, no noise, and it's quite inexpensive.

Looks like I,ll be heading that way. Tried the adapter ($2.50 at Rona) but still get the hum. Thanks for the info.

Both One-Spot and Godlyke Power-All are good ones, I have the Godlyke and it works great. The other guitar player in our band also has one and seems to be pretty noise-free.

The One Spot has adapters so that you can power Line 6 pedals, pedals that require reverse polarity etc..

A pedal that requires positive tip power can not be used on the same power supply as a negative tip pedal.

Just ordered the Power All (Godlyke) from guitarparts canada. Hope it works out.
