Hi Guys

Am adding a few pedals to my board and thinking a multi-power unit would be a good idea.

Which ones would you recommend? Are the SoundLab ones any good?

Thanks :thumb:

Just a few of the most popular ones.

Buy BBE Supa-Charger Guitar Pedal Power Supply | Guitar & Bass Effects Power Supplies | Musician's Friend <-- Has a lot of voltage options. My personal favorite.

Buy Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2+ Power Supply | Guitar & Bass Effects Power Supplies | Musician's Friend <-- People like the sag options. Has a separate electrical output in the back that can power other things (up to a certain extent)

Buy T-Rex 9V Fuel Tank Junior Guitar Effects Pedal Power Supply | Guitar & Bass Effects Power Supplies | Musician's Friend <-- Small, cheap, and effective for what it is. No isolated grounds, however.

Buy T-Rex Fuel Tank Power Supply | Guitar & Bass Effects Power Supplies | Musician's Friend <-- Has a ton of outputs. Again, no isolated grounds.

i love the voodoo lab. it has switchable voltages (9 or 12VDC, via dipswitches on the bottom) as well as the sag. it's super quiet.

Undoubtedly the T-Rex Chameleon

Channels 1-3, and 5 are selectable between 9VDC and 12VDC (and you can daisy chain up to 5 pedals off each too)

Channel 4 is selectable between 9VDC and 18VDC (there are also cables to bridge other 9VDC together for more 18VDC (although not isolated then).

Channel 6 is 12VAC.

Alll channels are isolated.

Talk about versaitility. I'm concvinced this is the best supply:

I use the Voodoo Lab PP2. Don't cut corners when it comes to a power supply's quality. Using it in conjunction with Boss pedals that each power 7 other pedals has worked out great for me. I hide the power supply and cables in my wedge pedalboard for a clean look and wired a power jack to it for quick and easy plug-n-play setup:

Thanks for all your advice, guys, really helpful.

Am liking the Voodoo Lab PP2 - bit pricey, but I think it is worth it for a soild, reliable one.

I use a Cioks/Eventide PowerFactor. I bought it because I needed a combination of 12V and 9V supplies and wanted everything isolated if at all possible to avoid noise. It was probably overkill but coming from a £36 PSU that was causing me noise issues I figured I might as well do it properly rather than do it twice.

T-Rex Chameleon is also pretty darned good but the Cioks won for me due to more isolated outputs and a thinner form-factor to fit under my 'board.

I still use the old, reliable Dunlop Brick. It's got seven 9v and three 18v outs. Perfect for my setup.
