    Okay, I'm probably asking a stupid noob question, but here goes...

    I have a few regular-polarity pedals and one reverse-polarity one. I just got the 5-point power cable for my 1 Spot power source. It works great when I only use it for the regular-polarity pedals, but once I put the reverse-polarity adapter on they all stop working. After a few seconds of silence, a thumping is heard through the amp.

    If it makes any difference, I put the reverse-polarity adapter on the first pedal in the power line.

    What, if anything, did I do wrong?

    You need a separate one-spot for the reverse polarity stuff. Cannot mix/match polarities on the same daisy chain.

    Thanks Fred! I still have the standalone power source for that pedal, so I'll just keep using that. The adapter was $3, so it'll probably be more expensive to mail back. :/ Live and learn.
