I have a Boss BCB 30 pedal board with daisy chain. I have three pedals: TU2, CS3 and DD3. I bought an universal power supply to use with it. I have set the power supply to correct polarity and voltage. I've checked with a voltmeter and it shows 9.13 volt. It also work with each of the pedals, but not if all pedals are connect with daisy chain.
I have tested the daisy chain with my voltmeter to see if there is a connection, and there are. But if I test it with voltmeter when connect, it doesn't show any voltage.
TLDR: daisy chain doesn't deliver power, but wires are sound.
