    Batteries

    Like I said before, I switched to a smaller chain and powered it with batteries so I didn’t have to bother with outlets, noise, amperes and such.

    Took this compact rig to a studio yesterday and OH BOY…



    I strongly recommend it. I hadn’t really used batteries ever since I was a beginner with a couple of cheap pedals and a 15 watt solid state amp but DUDE! My rig sounded so good I couldn’t stop smiling. No noise whatsoever and every pedal was lively and perfect in my ears.

    Plus, it was obviously practical.

    If I were to have a pedal board, that would be about what I'd want, too. Nice. Is that a wah or volume pedal?

    Wah. It’s the classic Morley optic wah in a smaller chassis

    By using a good power supply with isolated outputs such as ex. Voodoo Lab (there are more affordable options), noise won’t be a problem.

    Yes I used to do that but you still need to find an outlet for it, deal with cord length and it adds weight and bulk to your board.

    In film noir and legal thrillers those non sequiturs are known as "red herrings".

    I’ve never had noise problems with DC Bricks.

    I've got my P/S permanently mounted to the underside of my pedal board -- out of sight and out of mind. Plenty of regulated juice that's quiet as a church mouse, with both 9VDC and 18VDC taps for any conceivable device.
