Recently bought a MXR 10 band EQ pedal off of ebay but the douche didn't include the adapter.
It states it needs a 18V adapter, but could i get one the has a higher voltage as i know volts has nothing to do with power, cheers!

just use a 1spot and whatever adaptor it needs if any (the adaptors come with the 1spot if you but the decent one)

its amps, they carry the current to power a mechanism.

So 1spot should be good enough to power it? i have a 9v adapter for a radio that fits the hole, will that work?

Using you r same logic amps has nothing to do with power. The reality is that there is a relationship between amps and volts that determines power. You should get a power adapter that matches the specified voltage.

I just used a 9V adapter, its not enough, the pedal keeps fading in and out? would this adpater work instead?

Oh, and yes, voltage most definately matters Voltage is the driving force, current is the amount of fuel it takes. Both matter a lot. If you drop voltage in a circuit, the current used increases. So even if the pedal works at 9v., the current required is more. And if that current is too much for the pedal, smoke appears as a warning that you should have used the right adapter. So trust me, use an 18v. adapter, or that pedal will fry in time, even if it works for a while.


Edited to add. That power supply in the link appears to be ok, if....IF... the device uses DC voltage, AND you have a 240VAC outlet to plug in to...AND the adapter is correct...AND it takes no more than 1 amp (1,000ma)....
