    Anyone use an 18 volt power supply with their Fulltone. I am curious to know how different it sounds. Is it just a question of headroom?:confused:

    Fulltone recommend it on their site.
    I've tried with a doubler but didn't like.
    It sounds too heavy and loses a lot of its tubey feeling.
    I'm back to my regulated 9 V.

    On the other hand, results improve a big lot when you use a good 9 V DC mains instead of a battery.
