Anyone use these? I went ahead and bought one without even thinking of checking compatibility :X

Any way, I will be using this with A Digitech Hardwire Tuner and MXR DI+ (M80). Hopefully it'll work. I've googled and see other people using them with Hardwire Series and M80, so outlook is good

I don't think it'll work with my generic Nady wireless but it'll be a plus if it does!

Use one, love it. It broke, i bought another one. I've owned Voodoo Labs power supplies, DC Bricks, the 1 Spot is cheap, painless and effortless, and doesn't take up space on my pedalboard. Chuck in a surge protector and you have something that'll rival any other PSU on the market.

I use it for everything, except my Slow Gear. It even runs my TC Nova (1200mA alone) with no worries, alongside 7 other pedals.

What are American plugs like? Over here we have three prongs. One is live, one is neutral, they are the same length and equal in size, the ground is above them and slightly longer.

because the 1-spot is double insulated the grounding prong is plastic over here, which broke on me and because of the way our plugs work I couldn't use it anymore.

One Spots are all I try to use. The only power supply I have that is not a one spot is for my MIDI controller, simply because it needs it's own power supply to keep from adding noise to your signal, and I went with the cheapest possible. I also use the One Spot "pigtails", since it more efficient at eliminating noise than power supply pedals.

Love mine. Powers all 3 of my Toadworks pedal no problem, plus I have room to expand for more pedals should I decide I'm not dancing enough in one night. :lol:

Powers everything on both my bass and guitar boards except for the DL4, which takes 9V AC power.

Yep, the US ones have 2 prongs. They make an adapter that you can plug in Line 6 stuff! Visual Sound - Guitar Effects Pedals, 1 SPOT Pedalboard Power Supplies, and more...
Somehow I doubt that converts DC to AC power in something so small...? If it does work that'd be awesome, but I dunno how it would. Could someone possibly clarify?

The L6 DL4-style pedals also have a slightly different power plug, so this probably fixes that; but I doubt it'll power anything but the Line 6 Tonecores and/or maybe the M9/M13 if those take DC power.

^AWESOME! 1/4th of my problem solved. (I might be buying my guitarist's wife's ashdown comp)

Line 6 modeling pedals = can power up to two Visual Sound - Guitar Effects Pedals, 1 SPOT Pedalboard Power Supplies, and more...

Tonecore pedals = cannot chain, can power only one: Visual Sound - Guitar Effects Pedals, 1 SPOT Pedalboard Power Supplies, and more...

Holy shit! I totally didn't know that. My pedalboard just got like a dozen times simpler to set up.

I have been using one for a while now, haven't had any noise issues with it at all; works great for me.

I had a noise issue with mine, when I had a US Vox V487, ISP Decimator, and Boss
TU-2 all chained up. I think you have it now, Josh... confirm? I don't want to go hunting imy pile of adapters for something I don't own anymore. I know you have(had) the decimator, and I THINK I sent the 1-spot along with it.

I think my noise issue came from the specific TU-2, there had always been problems with it when not on battery power.

I've always had a problem with noise when pedals of different polarities were mixed. Anyone have this with the 1 spot?
