Hi All

Ive been looking at http://www.guitartrader.com/

Cause they ship to New Zealand and are still way cheaper for some stuff than getting it here...

But... They have a tick box saying...

"I understand that the product(s) I am purchasing are U.S. models and may have power requirements different from that of my country."

Which has got me all paranoid?

Will this pose a problem?

Thanks

No, most pedals run on 9vDC, so if you've got an adapter there will be no problem at all. If you're getting an adapter or a power supply from the US, then there will be a problem.

Im mainly looking at their MXR pedals, as MXR is totally over the top expensive over here, to get a 10 band eq Im look at 320 bucks lol.

Ah crap lol

Lol cant you buy power socket converters at airports n shit? Would that work?

If you get a Dunlop DC Brick, they can be used anywhere, so you could buy one from the US. There are some sellers on ebay that will give you 10% off a DC Brick if you buy any MXR/Dunlop pedals.
You should be able to find an 18v adapter at any decent electronics shop though.

they just change the actual plug fitting, not the voltage that the device is wanting

I'd take a T-Rex Chameleon over a Dunlop DC Brick any day.

Cleaner power, isolated outputs...

Are they switchable to 240v though?
I'd take a BBE Supacharger over both, its basically a Voodoo Labs PP2 clone, but half the price, and switchable.

Ah that Brick looks good... And I can use it to power my other pedals to it seems... Still that too costs a fortune in NZ lol. 300 bucks lol.

This is true. They don't ship the cable for that though with the unit, unfortunately. I don't think so at least.

That's how it is for my Voodoo labs.


+1 bbe does not ship a y cable for 18v.

i just bought a supa charger a few weeks ago and love it.
