What power supply should I get?

    I’ve been using a one spot forever... it finally gave out so I figured I’d upgrade to something not noisy...

    So here’s my signal chain.

    Guitar-> Zvex Mastotron- DOD440- EHX Small Stone- Boss TU-3- Zvex sonar- Digitech Whammy- Boss SD1- Marshall Shredmaster- Ernie Ball VP- EHX Freeze- Boss Space echo Re-20-> amp

    So all of those pedals are 9v except for the 12v whammy... what is my best bet for a power supply? I was thinking Voodoo Lab ?

    Does anyone know if the power plus 2 comes with the correct wire to fit a Digitech Whammy V4?

    I don't think I would abandon the 1-Spot for something less noisy, considering the 1-Spot is so dependable and you're likely to still experience noise on an "upgrade." Pedals can be inherently noisy based on just the chain.

    For the odd man out pedal, the 12v, I would use a separate isolated power supply anyway. They're so small and damn cheap enough, why bother for a "1-plug" solution for all your pedals?

    The Voodoo PP2 has 12 volt capability on a couple of its outputs. You just have to flip a dip switch located on the underside of the PP2.

    I don't know what cable the Whammy uses for power but Voodoo Labs sells a variety of cables with positive or negative centers and different tips. I would think they could give you what you need. Call them.

    BTW, I think it's a smart decision to get a quality power supply like the PP2. Super dependable. Buy it and you're done messing with power concerns forever.

    Used to think it wasn't so important, but since a recent move to a place with what i asume is bad power, I have become a big fan og isolated power supply's.
    Really made a big difference in both noise and tone to have everything hooked up with galvanic isolation, so I would go for an isolated psu.

    Regards,

    One Spot CS12. Has the 9vAC 800ma needed for Whammy. And a lot more options and future proof than PP2+, you would have to use AC pass through with whammy included adapter on PP2 to get AC power whammy needs.

    Here's a used one with 2 of the 18-9v step down cables to n case you need them. Their $15 a piece on their own.

    I'm using a One Spot CS-7 that I'm real happy with. If you have more pedals then try the CD-12.
