    I'm sick and tired of the fragile, thin cables on the wall wart power adaptors that fail after limited use - too damned fragile. I've searched the net without avail, does anyone know where I can order a 9V wall wart adaptor with a heavy duty, sturdy, thick cord on it???? I wouldn't think it to be this difficult.

    Sounds like your best bet. That's what I would do.

    Radio Shack sells this tubing that you can use to gather several cables together to keep them better organized, $5 for 5'. I used it for my home computer to gather the masses of cables running in and out of my computer. I have also seen car stereo installers use it when installing multiple components. It is flexible, but more solid than what you have now.

    This is the stuff I bought at Radio Shack: Split tubing. It also comes in 1/2", and 3/8" diameter. Heck, you can even choose from a few different colors. The possibilities are endless! :D

    Get a DC power supply, a NYCPedalboard and a heavy duty outdoor extension cord.
