Power Brick

A question for you pedal experts...

I've got a Dunlop DC10 power brick and want to power seven 9v pedals from it. Sadly, I've lost the cables and need to order.

Should I buy seven separate cables, or can a single daisy chain lead work from just one of its outputs?

You could daisy-chain the DC10 as the 7 x 9v outputs are not isolated from one another, however best practice would still be to use separate cables.

I will certainly do what is safest, but seven cables might be more messy than one. Thanks for your comments. I've not dared use so many pedals before but I want to stereo in to two rigs with different FX per channel.

The stated maximum current draw of 375mA seems conservative for 7 pedals, you may risk overloading the supply.

You may want to check the specs of all your pedals so make sure you wont exceed this. http://stinkfoot.se/power-list is a good resource if you cant find info on the pedal itself of from the manufacturer.

However it is also worth mentioning that if you're going to be bi-amping you will very likely run into some ground loop issues if running everything off the same supply.
