How are you powering the smaller one? and what are you going to put on it? All 9V pin hot pedals? Or a mixture of stuff?

My preference for large pedals with high/odd power requirements drove me to Pedaltrains with Voodoo labs power and I'm happy, but...spendy. 2x what you are looking at.

Uhm... smaller one is not powered YET. These i do believe are all going to be 9v battery and 9v wall wart style. I'm going to check into the pedaltrain and voodoo tho, thanks man. :)

I got the Pedaltrain Pro And I'm really happy with it, but it's big. It takes up a lot of floor. I'm using a Dunlop Brick for power, it's OK; works as designed but was a bit of a pain to secure underneath the frame.

The Pedaltrain comes with brackets for the Voodoo Labs powersupply. Looks like a easy install.

If you gig a lot you might want to think about a Pedal Snake. I can run 18VDC for the Brick, 9VAC for my Whammi and 2 effect send/receives all from the back of my amps. I just plug in four 5 pin DINs and I'm wired. One bigass cable.

Did I mention the Pedaltrain Pro is big?

We have a Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2 Plus on the guitar pedal board in I, Parasite.

It's been totally solid, and I dig the two sag controls for starving pedals. Sounds great on a Noise Swash.

You can get the Pedaltrains in three sizes; the Pro is a little wider than the 30x16 Gator board mentioned above. The open rails are *killer* for routing cables.

What I like about the PP2+ is the complete isolation of the outputs. I have a 2 plug adapter for the MutronIII that I got from Lingenberg Sound, it pulls +9v from one lead and -9V from the other and needs isolated grounds. It won't work at all with the Dunlop or several other multi-9V things, in a bad smoke/fire/fried gear kind of way. The PP2+ is like, "sure, bring it!" A couple of adapters to handle the Moogerfoogers and 12V or 18V gear and I'm cooking.
