We get it, researching the best pedalboard power supply for your stompboxes may not be the most exhilarating part of assembling your dream guitar rig. But much like finding the perfect pair of socks, choosing wisely makes everything more enjoyable regardless of how unglamorous it is. Plus it'll go a long way toward helping you achieve an out-of-this-world guitar tone.

The more pedals you amass, the more you'll come to realize that a quality power supply is absolutely essential. Of course, by increasing the number of stompboxes on your 'board, you open up the sonic possibilities of your rig, but you also increase the likelihood of the dreaded buzzsaw hum that can ruin your carefully crafted tone.
