    Quick question...any problem at all powering a Boss twin pedal (or a couple) with a 9v 1-spot? Isn't necessary to use some sort of special Boss PSA, is it?

    I had no problems with the dd-20 but I did need to run it on it's own 1-spot to eliminate smoe clock noise in my rig

    Should be fine. Just keep in mind that all the Boss twin pedals draw over 100mA (the DD-20 draws 200mA) so make sure you don't overload your 1-spot.

    Hey Brent, nice avatar. ;)

    I've run a DD-20, Digitech synthwah, Boss tuner, and ISP decimator on a one spot without any issue for quite awhile. Not sure what that all adds up to, but its worked just fine for 3 years.

    I run my whole board (see sig) off a godlyke power-all, which is identical to the 1spot. The only exception is the Hot British, which uses a special type of PSU.

    Should be no issue
