    I usually have my wireless in a rack with a tuner but I want to make the gear i bring to gigs less bulky. So now im considering putting my wireless on a pedal board with a floor tuner instead.

    My question is this, can I power the wireless (Sennheiser freeport) daisy-chaining it with a boss tu2 and a digitech bad mokney? My pedals are usually daisy-chained but i have since lost the adapter and im wondering if buying a new one will also power the wireless. I'm not really sure how the whole negative/positive and mA/volts thing works. But i know the adapter socket on the wireless unit is the same as the ones on the pedals.

    If it helps, here are the specs on my wireless:

    ooh, you better bone up on that, otherwise you're gonna burn up something!

    that senny apparently needs a 12 volt supply, so no, you can't just jump it off your boss pedals.

    there are power supplies that will do what you need, like maybe the voodoo lab pedal power 2 plus; it'll do 9 volts for some pedals, 12 volts for others, and has a couple high-power outs for stuff with more current draw. (that's the "mA" number, and it's very important. the mAs, or milliamps, that a piece needs can not be more than a power supply is rated to produce.)

    also, positive/negative, or AC vs. DC, has to be exactly right or you'll also blow up something.
