    not trying to hijack the thread, but since its basically the same subject im gonna go ahead and put it here....
    ive heard my ocd will sound better if i run it at 18 volts instead of 9. i use a 1 spot with a daisy chain and have no problems. i found this thing at sweetwater that will attach to the chain and convert 9v to 18v.

    does anyone have any experience with something like this? i dont really need to get an isolated power supply as i have 'the bone' board and there would be no place to put it.

    on That Pedal Show they talk about some pedals using 18V and giving more headroom.

    I went back and edited my post for clarity. Having 12V+ and 9V- in the chain at the same time caused the issue.

    I have two of the Calines and a Joyo that looks like the same thing with different ink. All three work great and the Calines have been out a few times in various jams etc and has been problem free (couple years) and dead quiet. I got the third just to have a backup really, but so far its been happy just to ride along.

    That looks like a successful mounting to me. Glad it worked out. Might have to try that brand.

    I run my catalinbread echorec and earthquaker devices The Depths vibe pedal at 18V. Think I have since I got them. Can't remember exactly but the general difference is bigger/more detailed, more volume and headroom. I think I tried it with my Catalinbread formula 5 and liked it better at 9v. I wasn't looking for headroom with that pedal but might be a better voltage for always on type use or a color boost.

    Not that I need it now, the power supply has two 18v outputs and a high output 9v.

    I did see that. The 18V can be more of a luxury but that high output is sometimes necessary. Good feature.
