Cheap-ish power supply for multiple pedals?

Postby Arpangel » Sat Oct 17, 2020 6:34 pm

I’ve got an MXR ISO Brick in my studio, which is great, but I’ve just put together a small portable rig, comprising of three pedals, and a synth, I need a multiple PSU that will power all three pedals, something really small, and compact. I don’t want to get another Iso, I’m trying to think of a really simple solution, as the pedals I’m using don’t run on batteries.

How portable do you want to be? I have a couple of RockBoard Battery power packs, including one of these which seems ridiculously cheap at the offer price https://m.thomann.de/gb/rockboard_power_lt_488778.htm?o=5&search=1602958417 recharges from a USB charger so no need for an extra charger in the travelling rig.

The true tone one spot is the quietest daisy chain power supply I have used and they aren't expensive

I use one with a mix of analogue and digital pedals, but there is an infomercial style video on their website that has cautions for which digital pedals might need an isolating psu.

Oh also the power cable is reassuringly long

Beat me too it, love my 1Spot. Best part is you can buy all the extras separately so I have one PSU but each board has it's own chain (home use). I've also got the doubler which runs my Dunlop UniVibe.

Otherwise I'd look at the mini iso from Dunlop/MXR.

Thanks, didn’t know about this little PSU. The info video is very helpful.
