    Up until today I've been using a Korg Pitchblack for this chore but it no longer wants to work. I'm using a one spot for power so what tuner seems to work best for my fellow members.

    Taking the title of this thread literally, you can buy at least one tuner that doubles as a power supply:

    https://www.amazon.com/CALINE-CP-09-TUNER-POWER-SUPPLY/dp/B00NDFWPHK

    I use one of these on my board and I have no complaints. Sturdy construction with nice quiet and flexible power for 9v pedals and a decent enough tuner for live work.

    I found you cant use the Korg to power anything if it itself is being powered from a VooDoo lab. whatever item you power from said Korg causes way too much noise in the signal chain.

    Ended up going with the Boss TU-3 5 yr. warranty is always a good thing.

    Just remember, the tuner is not providing the power or altering it in any way. Running a daisy chain from the TU-3 is no different than running a daisy chain directly from the 1-Spot. What I am saying is, I hope you bought the TU-3 as a tuner (which it is very good at), not as a power supply :).

    I power the low power pedals from the tuner, but still use a 1spot for the bigger, hungrier, ones.

    So I assume the tuner has a separate 9V power supply? Seems like not a bad idea, but you could get another one spot for fairly cheap instead, no need to get the tuner involved.

    I was thing of doing something like this on a small board (tuner, drive, reverb).

    The tuner even came with the daisy chain cable, but it has definite limits.Why wouldn't I use it ?

    My Turbo Tuner (ST-300) has a parallel power port so you can use that to daisy chain power to another pedal (or chain). The older ST-200 version does not have this feature.

    I have one particularly noisy pedal that benefits from being left off the One Spot chain and I power it from the TU.
    It helps.
