Which power adaptor do I need?

    I am hoping to buy a Grizzly Bass pedal soon.
    However, I'll need a power adaptor. It's described as 9v 250 mA.

    What I'd like to find is one that can power THIS pedal and a few others if daisy chained...

    I saw this one. Will it work and be safe?

    Thank you...

    PSA should do it, with 250mA left over for powering other pedals when you daisy-chain.

    That Boss PSA that you listed only puts out 500ma and only has one output for one pedal, so you'd need to purchase an extra cable with multiple outputs (with only 250ma left over for other pedals after the Grizzly). For less money you could get a One-Spot (1700ma) and a 5-output daisychain cable (an 8-output cable costs $6 more than the 5-output cable). I've been using a One-Spot with 5 pedals with no problems, though some people have reported that some digital pedals do not play nicely on daisy chains (a problem with all daisy chains, not just the One-Spot). This combo pack is a great deal, much cheaper than buying the adapter and daisychain cable separately:

    Get the 1 Spot. They work great. I have no noise issues even when I misplace one and have to run 10-12 pedals daisy chaining two harness cables.
