    Looking for a good Isolated Pedal Power Supply, the one that keeps coming up with 5 star reviews in the hundreds is the
    Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 PLUS Isolated Power Supply
    Voodoo Lab - Pedal Power® 2 PLUS

    Seems to have great reviews, seems anything lower in cost is just non isolated and causes hums. The Voodoo Lab Power Plus runs about $150 bucks shipped. Or is there anything else out there that is lower cost?

    I have a One Spot with a daisy that works great but honestly the Pedal Power 2 + is seriously next level— I still own both but only use the One Spot when I’m testing out new pedals.
    Can’t go wrong buying a PP2+

    I'm all about the MXR Iso Brick because it's light and provides a butt-ton of power.

    Mxr iso Brick is the best bang for your buck in terms of cost vs.# of isolated outlets with a huge range of mA ratings. And you can usually get one through prymaxe with one of their frequent 20% off coupons.

    I recently picked up a tru tone cs6 and it’s awesome for the price and the fact that it’ll fit under a pt nano or mini.

    i think its worth to try a cheaper power supply before spending that much money.
    i have a donner power supply i run 6 pedals with, and never had any hum or noise.

    product page says it has isolated outputs, but folks around here say that these cheapo-supplies aren´t isolated...

    don´t know who is right, but can say it works fine with no noise or other problems...

    Folks around here are right about the Donner. They're playing word games. Each output has its own short circuit protection and is filtered, but that is not true isolation. And it's not that non-isolated supplies can't work well. They certainly can. But occasionally you will get an effect that creates noise interacting with other pedals unless it's on its own iso line.

    PP2+... awesome. They appear in the Classifieds, from time to time...

    ... at a lower cost, of course.
