I'm upgrading my pedal situation, from a couple of boxes on the floor with a daisy chained power adapter to an actual board, and i'm looking at power options.
At the moment, my chain looks something like this:
ProCo Turbo Rat
EHX Big Muff Pi
TC Flashback delay
TC Hall of Fame reverb
I'm going to be adding a couple of new ones also, at the very least another delay pedal and some kind of modulation effect, maybe a Moogerfooger ring mod if i can afford it. The board will be used for several rehersals a week as well as regular gigging.
How should i power this chain? I'd like to keep it as cheap as possible, i've been looking at the Harley Benton Powerplant but it really seems too good to be true. Oh yeah, it needs at least one 12v option for the HM-2.
Nothing cheap will really be an improvement. I have heard the Diago is good but have no experince with it. You need a voodoo labs pedal power ultimately, nothing else is as quiet, it removed noise that I for years had thought to be "normal".
I would buy that rather than more pedals.
Voodoo Lab is the way to go.
The combination of a Pedal train / Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus will provide you with a solid good solution.
After tinkering around with cheap power chains and all kind of pedal board, I found out that investing in this solution is totally worthy.
Pedal Power will do 9, 12, 18 or 24 volts, but for 18/24 requires using 2 outlets.
But you can still daisychain some pedals with the PP using splitters. I'm sure all 3 TC pedals have enough filtering that you can power them with a 1>3 splitter.
As for the Cry Baby, powering it may add a bit of noise....I keep my wah off the board and power it by battery.
Some germanium pedals don't like to be powered either. I have a Rangemaster clone that has a bad hiss when powered, but I use a Virtual Battery from the GigRig (it's a DC isolation transformer), and it works fine.
if you're on a tight budget the best for the money i have came across and i use personally is a Diago Powerstation, really nicely put together and only cost me about £60, came with a daisy chain. Really good for the price mate.
