    Setting up a board. I play a MIM Mustang through a Fender Rumble 100. Yes, a cheap bass amp. Love the cleans! Light as a feather!

    Pedals are:

    1) EHX Holy Grail
    2) EHX 360 Looper
    3) TC Spark Mini
    4) EQD Organizer
    5) TC PolyTune

    Plan to use the effects loop so Spark Mini won’t kick in drive too fast.

    Could I use a One Spot with a 5 Pedal Daisy Chain?

    Oh. I play in a two piece band with a drummer trying to use the Organizer to sound like a raucous 60’s garage band with the Guitar and (Organ) all playing the same thing in unison.

    Yes, you probably could use a one spot, but I’m not positive everything just needs a standard nine volt charge from that group, so confirm that first.

    I’d go tuner, spark, organizer, reverb, looper. If you’re fully clean on the front end, probably no need for effects loop, but your call.

    Some recommend against daisy chaining digital pedals like Holy Grail, the looper, and Organizer, particularly with analog pedals also in the chain. This is because it can create noise from interactions on the power chain. But I've done it and didn't have problems. Isolated power is better, but might not be necessary.

    For pedal order, try:
    Tuner > Organizer > boost > reverb > looper

    You probably don't want the boost before the Organizer, messing with the octave tracking. But try it and see what it does.

    Hate to be the bad guy here, but good luck running EHX pedals on a daisy chain power supply. I have several One Spots. EHX pedals bring the noise.

    I would recommend a Power-All instead of the one spot. Of course a voo-doo labs isolated supply would be best.

    When powering pedals, it's always good policy to look at the data label of each pedal and write down the current draw in milliamps (mA). For example, some pedals might require 100 mA, and others may require 300 mA.

    Add up the mA to get a total, e.g., 100 + 300 + 250 + 500 + 150 = 1300 mA or 1.3 amperes. Compare it with the power supply you intend to use to ensure you do not exceed the capacity of the power supply.

    Yeah, I’d get a Dunlop power brick if you’re not playing for money. They’re a little more regulated and a little less noisy.

    Asking pedal order is like asking which of my children should I get rid of first ;)

    It’s all personal preference and no set rules although there are “standard” positions for modulation and so forth I’d move them around and see what works for you

    I’ve run many analog and digital pedals together on the same power chain without issues for the most part. The one that did give me trouble was a Line6 Echo Park. Apparently the Line6 Tone Core pedals are all known for this. I put it on its own isolated power supply and all was well again.

    Try it and if it works, your good, if it doesn’t, pull pedals out of the chain until you find the culprit. A One Spot is the bottom of the barrel of pedal power solutions. The Dunlap Brick mentioned before is probably a better bet for not much more $$
