    Question about powering pedals

    I have a pedalboard, bit with my new delay I have run into an issue.

    SKB PS-8 powered board - 8 100mA jacks
    - TU-3
    - Line 6 G30 floor receiver
    - Digitech Hardwire reverb
    - MXR Micro amp

    Now add in my new-to-me Empress Vintage Modified Superdelay. It came with a power supply and needs 300mA for power.

    My question is, how would I go about having everything on my board and powered? Am I looking at *sigh* getting a new board with various designated power terminals to power the various pedals? As it stands I need 3 outlets just to power my rig, which is not ideal. I'm not gigging it yet, but I hope to be live again in the coming months.

    Do I have any other options? Thanks guys.

    Hopefully james will chip in here. He just built his board with some fancy psu that powers his hd500 and pedals

    I'm hoping it's possible to somehow mod my current board to use the empress power supply and still power all my stuff.

    Provided the voltage is right, you _could_ theoretically just create a custom cable to run 3 jacks to one plug IN PARALLEL NOT IN SERIES SERIES WOULD BE FUCKING BAD DO IT IN PARALLEL and be fine, since all taht would do is up the available amperage.

    While I have bought a fancy power supply (see my own pedalboard thread for that), what Max said sounds like the best idea to me. Just make up a cable that connects 3 of the connectors you need for the board into the connector you need for the delay. Connect all the positive wires together and all the negatives together and you're good to go. Oh, don't forget to insulate any bare wires
