Ok, so i have a pedalboard. it's an SKB that powers 6 pedals. problem is, i have nine pedals and i want to create 2 separate pedalboards. instead of spending the cash on another board, i want to make and power my own. the making part is easy for me, but the powering i have some Qs on.

i know i can buy something like the PowerBrick, or 1 SPOT or the Godlyke multi-power sources. is it also possible for me to get a simple adapter and a daisy chain to power them all? what do you all recommend?

I use a simple Ibanez adapter that powers up to five pedals. Costs about 15,- or so.

Just buy the 1 Spot Daisy Chain and use an an AC adapter (1 Spot make a good one...I use a Danelectro Adapter). You can connect the chains together if you choose. I have 2 adapters powering 16 pedals. I have the adapters plugged into a surge protector and the surge protector plugged into a Power Tap Power Center for Computer that is on my desk. This way I don't have to crawl under my desk to turn on the surge protector. I sit my laptop on top of the Power Tap (which also plugs into the Power Tap).

Search eBay for daisy chain under Musical Instruments and Pwer Center under all categories (you could just look under Computers or Consumer Electrinics as well). Also search for 1 Spot under Musical Instruments.
