    So I received my Super Symmetry yesterday and was PUMPED.
    I have a very modes setup as I do most of my playing at home (P-bass > Super Symmetry > amp).
    When I turned everything on and stepped on the SS the noise level was AWFUL (super loud).
    I don't believe for a moment its the pedal (Darkglass makes awesome products).

    I believe this is because (and I am a bone-head) I was using a very old boss power supply.
    Yep, good decision on my part $300 pedal and use a 15 to 20 year old power supply.
    ANYWAY, I want to be sure I buy the proper power supply.
    Darkglass says to use a "Regulated 9V DC Adapter with a Center-Negative plug".

    It appears the Livewire PH1700 9V Slimline fits the bill.
    However, I was wondering about the 1 SPOT - Space-Saving 9V DC Adapter.
    In reading the description of the 1 SPOT I don't find anything about a center-negative plug.

    Does anyone have any experience with either of these?
     
  2. I've used the SS with a variety of power sources. Not used the ones you're talking about, but I've not had any problems with noise at all.

    I bought it from another TB'er so hopefully I didn't get hood-winked.

    One spots are great. Probably the best you can buy in that style of power supply.

    1Spot is a safe bet!

    I bought a 1-Spot on the way home from work today.
    I just tried it out and the Super Symmetry now works perfectly and sounds FANTASTIC!
    Thanks everyone.
