    Hi All,

    I've been looking for a power supply for my pedal board and there seems to be a lot available over a vast range of prices so I thought it best to ask first before I spend.

    I only have a few pedals (budda bud wah, EHX Small Stone, Boss TU2, Boss DD-4) but need to power supply to be universal to fit all these.

    I've been looking at the Burkey Flatliner SIX
    Burkey Flatliner SIX pedal board power supply - Free UK Delivery - Vision Guitars UK

    Do you guys have any other ideas?

    Looks great - isolated outputs, etc. I'm lookin for one to feed my Digitech Whammy at 9vac and 1300mA!

    +1 more for the Voodoo labs. I used to use a 1-spot and had lots of noise. The PP2 made it go away!

    Pedalboards, Pedal Board Cases, Effects Pedal Power Supplies and the Finest Hand-built British Guitar Amplifiers by Diago - Pedal Power

    Check this out. I have heard nothing but good reviews for this and I need a power supply myself so was planning on getting this.

    I actually saw a guy in a local bar using one to power his board and he raved about it.

    There is a list of all the pedals it can power on the site. I think all of yours are compatible. If not they also make a range of adaptors/extensions.

    I think you meant DD-3? Lol.. :D

    The flatliner looks good but IMO a little bit expensive for those looking for something simple to power up their boards.

    I'd go with either the PP2+ / Trex Fuel Tank Jr / BBE SupaCharger.

    I actually meant DD-7 but good catch there... small slip of the fingers! :)

    Thanks to everyone for your input!

    What are the advantages of the PP2 over something like the unit MJG posted?

    The voodoo is nice, but I think the best is the T-Rex Fueltank Classic followed by Burkey's Flatliner.

    I was reading the specs on that site and if it really does what it says it will (power Line6 modelers and provide 18V) then that really looks like a great unit..

    Well, I went with the popular vote and got the PP2.

    The funny thing is, apart from the controller for my Dual Rec, it's the most expensive thing on my pedal board! :)

    I suppose you gets what you pays for!

    Thanks for the help all!

    The T Rex fuel tank classic doesnt have any isolation between the 9 volt outputs. This makes noise. It cant do 18 volts and it cant power Line 6 or Eventide pedals. There is no contest. PP2
