Advice for this pedalboard please?

  1. Hey guys!
    I am planning on getting myself a proper pedalboard in the near future! I plan to have on it:
    1. TC Electronic Polytune 2(mini?)
    2. Markbass Compressore (or MXR M87 compressor)
    3. EBS Octabass
    4. MXR M80 DI+
    I have a couple of questions for this.
    Firstly, Is the Markbass Compressore a good choice? It's slightly cheaper than the MXR one, plus it's valve, but it is so big and power hungry!
    Secondly, what power supply would you recommend? Something under £110 would be very very ideal, but I can go slightly above, but the cheaper the better, and preferably one that can handle the compressore!

    So guys, what do you think? :)
  2. I was recently doing research for a similar setup, I'm interested in the compressore as well. As far as I can tell, you really can't power that thing with anything but the included power supply, I couldn't find any definitive proof that the readily available power supplies for pedal boards will run it. It's also pretty large. I decided if I was going to go that way I couldn't use a pedaltrain mini and fit that and 3 or 4 other pedals. Someone with more first hand experience might be able to refute that though.

    Yeah the sheer size and odd power requirements would scare me away from the Markbass for use on a mobile pedalboard.

    The MXR M87 should also be a good bit cheaper than the Markbass...but also look into the EBS MultiComp which is a fantastic compressor as well and is still my personal favorite.
