    Hi all, ive finally come to the point where my meager DC brick is out of taps. i have a one spot that i can use in tandem untill i upgrade my power supply but id rather see if the brick can be used on all ten pedals by running a pedal off the 2nd 18v tap. on my board im running in order:
    -OCD v4 (at 18v)
    -Fat sandwich
    -Hoof
    -A very special twosome
    -Bit commander
    -Super hard on
    -Devi ever US
    -TC gravy (chorus/trem)
    -TC HOF mini
    -Korg DT-10 tuner

    so the question is does anyone know if any of these pedals can hang at 18v besides the OCD?

    I drilled an extra hole in my Pedaltrain so it can hold a Voodoo ISO-5 and Pedal Power 2 plus.

    my question isn't about power supplys, just asking if any of the listed pedal can run at 18v.

    What did the manufacturers or the manual told you?

    You can calculate the power draw on the pedals and match the to the plug on you supply if it's a block (and not a wallwort). I use a couple of Y power splitters... Just think about what effects you're not likely to have on at the same time and pair them.
