    Top 10 Best Pedalboard Power Supplies in the UK 2021 (Strymon, Donner and More)

    After collecting guitar pedals for a while, eventually, a daisy chain just isn’t going to cut it. More stompboxes need more power, so, before long, you’ll get a white noise buzz. You can run the gauntlet using batteries, but that’s a risky business too. If you want to avoid both these scenarios and play in relative peace with decidedly less noise, a pedalboard power supply is the way to go.  Finding a power supply can be hard, though, and sometimes it feels like you need an electrical engineering degree to figure out all the terms. However, armed with the information in this guide, you’ll be able to tell your mA from your volts and easily find what will work best for you. From there, you can shop around all the top dogs like Voodoo Labs, Strymon, Truetone and MXR.
