I have anywhere from 6 to 10 pedals in my board and it's rare that more than 4 are on at once so the max rating never really comes into play.
Also, fwiw I use a voodoo power 2 which allows me to alter voltage for two outputs and provides leads for non standard pedals. about $170 USD new, much less used.
Although lately I can hear it whine and I'll probably replace it soon, it has been through the wars for about 8 years now so I won't fault it for giving up the ghost.
The most I'll have on at a singe moment is may two of the gain pedals and the wah. The TU-3 would also be switched on when tuning, so thats a max of 4 pedals at once and that's probably going to be a very rare occurrence.
What about the buffered pedals like the TU-3? Will they always draw?
