Topic: 9 volt DC adaptor

Can someone tell me the correct adaptor to use with the Flashback, please?

Re: 9 volt DC adaptor

9V DC with over 100 mA (milliampere) - try to get it in the ballpark though, if it says something like "2 A) that means 2000 mA, which is a bit much since the pedal won't be using it.

Make sure the adapter has a negative polarity;

Since electrical devices draw current, there is zero harm in having a supply of the proper voltage that even greatly exceeds the specs of your device. If you go to the library because you need 3 books, you brain won't fry just because the library has thousands of them available. That's how current draw works too. The spec on the adapter is what it CAN provide IF the connected device DRAWS ("tries to actually use") that much.

Put another way...if you connect a 2000ma adapter to a 100ma device,the adapter will supply....

100 ma to the device. It won't try to cram more electrons per second than that.

Not so with voltage.

Re: 9 volt DC adaptor

that's kind of what i wrote though isn't it? it won't be using it? a waste getting one with a huge supply if he's buying a new one, i don't know if prices change because of that kind of thing.

Re: 9 volt DC adaptor

Any common 9v supply is OK. The pedal draw is less than 100 mA so any std  9v brick feed or basic 9v wart will work. You can run higher mA than a device needs but not less. No harm should occur no matter how high but you do not need to be ridiculous as it does not help the performance or tone.
