Hi i recently bought a Rockburn 10 Watt Practice amp. Unfortunately i bought it from the UK when i live in Canada . So i want to buy a converter/transformer of some type except im sorta scared it may mess with the sound. If not any reccomendations for what transformer i should buy?

Regards

you need something to drop you down from the UK voltage of 230/240V to Canada's 110V (I think canada is 110). step down transformer.

depending on how much it costs, though, it might well not be worth it. You could possibly pick up a better amp for less than the cost of that step-down transformer...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

nah you need a transformer or you'll fry the amp

an adaptor only works if you have somewhere which is the same voltage, but which has a different size of plug- e.g. the UK/Ireland versus continental Europe.

Would a travel adapter do it? Or would i need a legitimate transformer?


No! Travel adapter only makes the plug fit but you would still feed the amp incorrect voltage. Unless the amp is capable of taking both US and EU voltage (it should read 110v-240v or something in the back) you are screwed. Step down transformers can be pricey so its really not worth it for cheap practice amp.

Thats a step up converter. From USA to EU voltage. You need the opposite, Step down converter.

Also I dont know how well a cheap one like that would work with an amplifier.
