    is it possible to by a cable daisy-chain and then one of those supermarket 5 dollar adaptor plugs with the oltage selector swithes they normally have and stick it in the Boss Chromatic tuner TU-2 stomp box? does it work ok or do you think its better to get a real boss or one spot? is it a big difference in the sound , if any?

    I thought about doing the same thing but I bought the Boss one because I was scared.

    Get it from Radio Shack so that way you can return it if it makes your set up hum.

    If you want to go the Boss or Visual route, forget the Boss. It will not power a lot of pedals (only 200mA). The Visual will set you back about 10 bucks more but it will power more pedals (1700 mA) and will come packed with the necessary cables and connectors.

    The power supply feature of the TU2 and the LS2 is not really a "feature" IMHO. You can plug a Boss adapter straight into a daisy chain cable and connect your pedals directly and it will work just like a Visual or a Godlyke albeit with a little less "juice". No need to go through the Boss pedals' "power supply" port.
