Does it need a separate power supply or not?

how can people be in such disagreement about this? i would like to use it with a Danelectro regulated AC adaptor, daisy-chained with 5 other boxes (one is a tuner). will it work or not?

I power it off of a Power-All daisy chain. The worst that will happen is that when too many pedals are on at one time they won't work.

I power mine with a 1 spot with 2 daisy chains connected to 10 pedals.
Never once have I had an issue ever with my 1 spot or zilla.
I will admit I dont play games like powering on every pedal I own at the same time though. I leave that for other so I have something to read about here.

I use a 1-spot too, with no noted problems. Line 6 says not to, though.

I'm actually powering TWO of them off of one daisy chain(as well as three other pedals on the same one). No issues whatsoever.

I dont have a verbazilla but I want to play too...and I DO have a line 6 echo park and a line 6 uber metal...

I tried powering my line 6 in a daisy chain powered by a 1 spot and it added HISS, not hum, but HISS

So I tried powering a boss noise supressor with a 1 spot and daisy chaining off of it, but again if a line 6 pedal was in there it added MUCH HISS

I powered a line 6 on my skb ps-45 using the power adapters and it added too much hiss...

basically the only way I have been able to power my line 6 echo park and uber metal without adding hiss is by using the line 6 wall warts...so far

will the standard 1 spot daisy chain plugs work for line 6 or do i need some sort of converter? i'm about to make an offer on a 1 Spot and daisy chain dealio.

edit: this concern came from a blurb on the 1-spot site, but now i see that the converter is for the line 6 pedal-sized modellers. so no worries.

Yeah, I've always daisychained mine with no problems whatsoever. I even bought the Line6 power supply when I got it, since I'd heard it was noisy otherwise, but ended up getting rid of it (the supply).

the zilla takes the typical 9v center negative tip just like the Boss kind.
The 1 spot package will work just fine without any special adapters and depending on how many pedals you plan on hooking up,, you simply buy another 1 spot daisy chain and connect it to your main daisy chain..
Real simple and nice,,, ive never had any issues with noise or anything else with the 1 spot.
