You can run your pedals off of batteries, but since the battery drains whenever there's a chord in the "input", it's much easier to power them with a power supply.

There are a couple of different ways to go about this that I'm going to show you in this lesson. The most basic version is to use a 9-volt power supply and a "daisy chain" to power multiple pedals from that one source. If you use a BOSS tuner, you can connect the daisy chain directly to that and it will double as a power supply.
