How To Build A Guitar Pedal Board, Pt. 1: Creating An All-In-One Power Supply

With a renewed interest in all things guitar, I thought I'd share some of my thoughts and ideas on guitars and guitar equipment on Pisteuomen. So, I'm going to start another series that I'm calling "How To Build A Guitar Pedal Board". In each of these installments, I'm going to show you, how, as a guitarist, you can save lots of money by having a little creativity. In this first post, I want to show you how to save upwards of $200-300 by saving yourself from having to buy the plug that fits each pedal you purchase or a "one source power supply" such as the T-Rex "Fuel Tank" unit or the less expenisive, "Godlyke Power Supply". I'm going to show you how to save by teaching you how to make your own in 10 easy steps. I came up with the idea on my own and did it in less than an hour. When you're done, you will have saved tons of money and given yourself a great sense of accomplishment. So, what follows is a slideshow that will guide you through the process of building your own guitar pedal board's "one plug power supply". Because the slideshow moves quite fast and because the in-depth, explanatory captions are not included, you will need to click the "Tutorial" link below the slideshow and once that page opens, follow the instructions "step-by-step" w/each pic and its caption. Use the "next" button in the top, right of the page to proceed to the next pic or the "back" button to refer to the previous one. Enjoy!

(*Note: While there are 10 Steps, there are more than 10 photos. Some steps required a number of illustrative pictures. Thus, some pics may be labeled 1.5, etc. "1.5" is still representative of "Step 1" and so on and so forth! Also, there is no "sound/volume" because this is a pictoral/reading tutorial!)
