I am using one pedal at a time, however my Vick Audio Lotus Overdrive makes a lot of noise. It doesnt have battery and I am using the same 9vdc adapter that I use for my other pedals. My other pedals work fine.

When I ferrite ringed my monitors, I had to open them up and put them on the power wires inside.

You could try one on the lead running from the 9v in to the PCB/whatever Vick uses inside.

That said, the ferrite rings only fixed one monitor, though both were improved. YMMV. Maybe more/better power conditioning would help?

There is a marked difference between the way my pedals sound when the power is going through my Voodo Labs PedalPower (relatively quiet) vs plugged straight into the wall (noisy as all getout). What kind of power conditioning do people use for amps?

In similar situation- what size/type ring did you use to reduce the noise?
