Zac, are you trying to run 6 pedals off a single Pedal Power output?

If you are, the thing to remember is that you can max out a 100mA output very fast. A single effect like delay or chorus can push at least 40mA by themselves. Also, even if you had a bunch of low mA pedals like overdrives and a wah, then you have now tied all the grounds together and will probably get some hum.

Really, if you have that many pedals, I would suggest a second Pedal Power, or when it's finally released, a Versa. Otherwise, daisy chaining all those pedals defeats the purpose of using a single pedal with it's own isolated and filtered power output. Just saying...
