Am I the only one who powers eleven pedals with a 1-spot (actually, a Godlyke) and has no noise issues?
I wouldn't call mine "noise issues" because I assume most higher gain dirt pedals to have some form of buzz to them. But on the higher gain ones I can definitely hear the less-filtered power from my 1 Spot. Didn't start off that way, it developed over time.
It's a non-issue for me for sure, 98% of the time. But there are a few pedals I built that definitely required some filtering because the circuit just didn't play well with unfiltered power. The biggest culprit was the fuzz face...I tried nearly every variation out there and they all had the craziest noise issues until I applied some filtered power.
So, bottom line...I don't consider my 1 Spot to have noise issues, even though they are somewhat present, because it isn't so noisy that the pedals are unusable. Others might consider it unusable, but it doesn't bother me. I wouldn't mind building a little filter box to run my 1 Spot through though, just to see what kind of difference it makes in the noise.
Also...when is this thread going to achieve sticky status?
