    Hey Guys,

    I've been trying to streamline my setup, but the differences in power consumption are throwing me for a loop when it comes to finding a power supply that will work.

    My current board is as follows:
    Korg Pitchblack -> F-Deck HPF III -> Diamond Bass Comp. -> Aguilar Tone Hammer

    The issue I have is that the Diamond and the Aguilar both run at 18 volts and the other two run at nine. Right now I have to have three power supplies plugged in to a strip.

    My goal is to get a Pedaltrain Mini or Nano for the portability, but I don't know how I would power the board with a setup like that since a power strip probably won't fit.

    Any help would be fantastic.

    Thanks a lot!

    Depending on the power draw (and whether or not you want to add more pedals) you could use a T-Rex Fuel Tank Jr.

    Output 1: Into Korg Pitchblack and use the PB's 2nd power output to power the F-Deck
    Outputs 2 & 3: Voltage doubler cable to give 18v to the Diamond
    Outputs 4 & 5: Another voltage doubler cable to give 18v to the Aguilar

    Awesome guys, thanks a lot. I didn't really realize how expensive power supplies are, but it seems like that is about the going rate. I'll have to pick one of those up.

    I just got my nano in the mail today, and after an easy modification my fuel tank jr is tucked under it nicely just a thought.
