Dunlop do the DC Brick, and Leem do one too. Both power a mixture of 18v and 9v pedals. Dunlop is $299 with 7 x 9v and 3 x 18v. Comes with all leads.
Leem DC18 is $120 and is 6 x 9v and 4 x 18v.
My company imports both. You can order from Hornby Rock Shop, Canty Music Planet in Riccarton Rd, or Musicworks in Colombo St.

I got a Fuel Tank jnr off Custom Audio Boutique, which I'm sure does 18v.

12v-24v is a more difficult area. The power supplies I mentioned above are not available in the configuration. I would suggest you contact Lumen in Auckland. They specialise in power supplies, and may have what you need, or may be able to custom build one.
Lumen's # is 09 9842840.

is it a fair call to suggest that by using a "Brick" or "Fuel Tank" I will get less extraneous noise when 'idling' my pedal board?

I know I am a serial ditherer :D

I like my pedals but want no top end squeaking, etc.

Yes. The Brick is regulated, no noise. If you decide to buy one, get it from Kenny Duncan, say I sent you.

He will give you the best price in NZ.

I ended up getting a Mod-Tone Power Plant

it has switches for various DC rating
for 18v you use 2 x 9v sockets

works good , also greatly lessened pedal noise
