Re: Power supply!
You're correct that you need to watch out for the current drain as well. I didn't include that in there because must effects really don't draw that much current (because they have to be supplied by batteries as well)!  
So even if a manufacturer recommends a 200mA power supply, it probably only sucks a couple mA at most. All the same, check out how much current the effects draw.  
For me, I just picked up a general purpose transformer that supplies 1.2A. Plenty of beef to go around for what I need it for.
