DC Brick power adapter help!

I'm currently using a DC Brick to power my pedals (dunlop) but the cable that connects the mains to the brick itself is broken.

Will the brick accept any kind of adapter cable thing? What are they even called so i can search them? Can't see them any where! will it take any value?

Im in the UK if that helps - 230V Mains


UPDATE: I know this is a very old post of mine, but um... Well, I've went and done it again, haven't i?

Anyhow, I can't remember what one it was that I bought last time - will this one ie found be appropriate? Cheers

"The Jim Dunlop DCB-10 Brick is the most reliable and consistent way to power your effects board.The DCB-10 BRICK will power all your effects from one central source and is powerful enough to run all your pedals and stomp boxes. The Brick powers up to ten effects at once and it accepts nearly any source of incoming AC power, from 100 to 240 volts, at 47 to 63 Hz. Just change the adapter plug (sold separately) for the country you’re in, and the Brick is good to go.There are a variety of leads included to connect your effects, including two extra pin-type connectors for old MXR’s and other vintage effects. The DCB-10 Brick features seven 9V and three 18V outputs, and you can use them all simultaneously without fear of overload or overheating. With an output capacity of 1000 milliamps, you’ve got power to spare.More than a power supply, this box is a power conditioner as well, and the DCB-10 supplies predictable voltage at all times, keeping your effects sounding consistent every time you use them. Plus, the Brick’s unique FCLF (Foldback Current Limiting Circuit) provides ultimate protection against power shorts and overloads. Even at full load, you’ll enjoy the quiet and cool operation of a fully regulated power supply."

contact dunlop and get a new one. the power supply you need is 18V, 1.0 ma, negative center. it looks like the barrel is pretty standard. technically you can go to radio shack (or the British equivalent) and get a generic power supply to serve the purpose, as long as it has those specs.

I say you either contact contact boss and get an official replacement or just get of the damn thing.

Dunlop DC Bricks are terrible. Get a real brick style supply, like a BBE Supa Charger. The Dunlop DC brick is just a daisy chain in disguise.

+1 i have had my bbe supa charger for quite a while, gigged quite often. it has never had any issues and has never failed me. you can select the voltage on each plug. has plenty of power.
