I have a planet waves chromatic stage pedal tuner and it says I can daisy chain. This pedal runs on a 9v, 300mA, tip power supply.

The other pedals I have and their power supplies are:
Digetch digi delay: Digitech power supply don't knwo what its called.
MXR Phase 90- Dunlop ECB-03 Barrel 9V AC Adapter
Dunlop Crybaby- Dunlop ECB-03 Barrel 9V AC Adapter
Danelectro Fab Chorus- 9v Danelectro DA-1 Power Supply
Danelectro Fab Flanger- 9v Danelectro DA-1 Power Supply
Rocktron Hush Pedal- Boss PSA-120 Adapter

I'm 99% sure all these could be daisy chained with my pedal tuner but wasn't sure. So are they compatible?
If so which daisy chain will work?

They only power 5 correct? And is it 5 and the tuner or 4 and the tuner?

I'm not sure I understand what you are asking. Are you wanting to daisy chain the power, or put them inline from the guitar to the amp?

I'm not sure where you came up with the figure "5". Then again, I may have missed something.

If you are concerned about signal drop caused by the effect pedals being in the circuit between your guitar and your amp, you need to take into consideration what effect each of them have on the signal. Some pedals actually act as "repeaters" and boost the signal level. Others will drop the signal.

If you are asking about power. I'm not aware of any steadfast rule of a number. As long as you don't over tax the amp ratings or the wire guage, you should be fine.

I'm asking whether or not I could daisy chain (power) my pedals using the planet waves tuner and a daisy chain. And I'm asking whether or not my pedals are all compatible to be daisy chained like if the voltage is right and whatnot. And what chain to buy?

Got ya. Most vendors and even MusiciansFriend, usually post technical specs on equipment. They are all going to be 9v, thats my guess anyway. What you have to watch out for is IR drop, or the resistance of the wire x the amperage.

When you connect loads like that, they are connected in parrallel, that means the voltage stays even across the board, but the amperage will vary depending on the particular loads of each device.

Do you know someone that has some electronics training? They would be an ideal person to have diagram this for you. I studied it, but that was in the Mid Eighties. I Administrate computer networks, I couldn't recite the resistor color codes to save my life.

Nah not to my knowledge I'm gonna keep researching and go ask someone at guitar center next time I'm there and wait for some more replies.

Also I was wondeirng on this daisy chain what do you do with the plug that doesn't look like the other 5 on the chain?

Would that go one be the thing that goes into my tuner? Because my tuner just has like 2 jacks that look the same just like the jacks to power my other pedals.

The plug that is different from the others is actually a socket, into which you would plug your Boss adaptor. Then you plug the daisy chain into the next 5 pedals.

Oh so I plug the power adaptor into the socket and then go into my pedal tuner with the first daisy chain thing powering the tuner AND 4 others? or however many on the chain?

The daisy chain feature int eh Boss tuner works with a daisy chain adapter where all the ends look alike. The one in the link would allow you to daisy chain power with out using the Boss power feature.
Visual sound also makes one that will power 5.
seems like most of the gear uses the same power jack... most DOD and older dulop/mxr pedals have a phone stlye power jack which would require an adapter... same with E-H.
and then the Line 6 gear tends to be reverse polarity.
so, I think youhave enough info to make it all work, you just might need to spend another $10-$20 .

I'm 99% sure itll work I think I'm getting one tomorrow worse comes to worse I have to return it or get an adaptor or two no biggy.

I thought you were going to put something together in an adhoc fashion. Those should work just fine for what you are wanting to do. The only thing to worry about is if the ends will fit the pedals.

I decided not to add the fx loop into the mix too big of a hassle.

I however have them in the order you suggested if I were to not use the fx loop.

I bought the daisy chain and it worked perfectly sometime soon I'm gonna finish making the actual pedal board and put the pedals on and whatnot.

I'll try and post pics as soon as possible.

Gold, Silver, No-colour. (tolerance +/- 5, 10, and 20 %, gold and silver also act as negative 1 and 2 for the multiplier band)
