    I got a few different ones.

    Voodoo Lab Pedal Power
    Pedal Train something something
    Decibel Eleven Hot Stone
    Voodoo Lab X4

    I’m using a couple of VL X4 on smaller boards. If I’m careful and use a little math I can run a pretty decent board on the 1000milliamps provided. I’m so lazy I’m trying to get away from the big brick power supplies... size and weight are not my friend.

    VooDoo Lab Pedal Power. It's an older one, but it's done what I need for a long time, now.

    Have you had any noise issues with your Phoenix? I'm on my second one. First one made crazy interference noise from my modulation pedals. It was replaced and the second one does it too. This one also makes crazy, AM radio sounds with my Klone pedal.

    Not of those noises are there when I daisy chain the whole board off of a single 1-Spot.

    I have since bought a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 3 Plus and it is dead silent too.

    Walrus Audio has been spectacular in the customer service department though!

    The only noise issue I ever ran into with mine was powering the Molten Voltage Delaytion (tap tempo controler for my carbon copy). I powered it with a seperate wall wart through the plug on it and ha no issues afterward.

    Regardless of brand, you want one with isolated outputs.

    Trutone CS12.

    I’m a big fan of it. No noise, easy to install. Very versatile.

    Plain old planet waves 9v 500mA adaptor…. Easily supplies enough current for Dunlop wah, boss chorus, overdrive, tuner, delay…. $9

    I picked up one of these a while ago. So far its been just fine. The accuracy of the "isolated" outputs is perhaps optimistic but like I say, so far so good. What I like best about it is the direct AC in without the need for the wall warts like the two Caline ones that I have. They worked fine also, but not a fan of the need for the additional converters.

    Yep Walrus Phoenix is awesome, have it since 2017 and no issues whatsoever. I power a Pedaltrain Novo 24 with it so occasionally I still need to daisy chain off of 1 or 2 of the outlets but I double up some mod pedals, not dirt. Not a single buzz or hiss.
    Also use a 1 Spot CS6 to power a Pedaltrain Metro 16. Its very thin and fits under the Metro even though it’s a flat board. Perfect match for that board. The 1 Spot works great too.

    I power my entire Pedaltrain Pro with it.

    This is the board in question. The Phoenix apparently doesn't like this combination of pedals. I tried switching out all of the cables, both signal and power, rearranging everything and trying to isolate individual pedals to see if one of them is the problem. No luck.

    All of these run fine on a 1-Spot daisy chain or the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 3 Plus. Two Phoenix' in a row gave me fits.

    I'm really bummed about it too because it has just the right number of outlets for my board and it fits neatly underneath.

    I use a Gator power supply that I robbed from my Gator board (the big one) when I got my Pedaltrain. It works well.
