For the longest time I was a no-effects guy, or at the most one pedal between my bass and amp. Well, that's changed and I'm starting to see the light, or be lured by the dark side... I'm so confused. When it was one pedal I powered it with a 9v and plugged and un-plugged when I was done. Got a second pedal, it's not that much more trouble... Added 2 more and now I'm wondering what to do. I know I eventually want to get a Voodoo Labs or similar power supply, but that's not in the budget for this month, so for the next few weeks is it ok to keep the pedals plugged in on battery power? Will they drain the same way an active pre will drain if you keep it plugged in, or does the effect have to be engaged for the battery to drain? Keep in mind I'm not planning on doing this forever, just until I decide on and get a decent power supply.
