Ok, so, say to buy an amp from the UK or US, apart from usuing a crappy adapter, are the "power cables" (dunno what they are called) interchangable? So can i buy the amp from another country, then just buy another power lead for it? I live in aus by the way, and clearly dont know **** bout electronics. (of any kind shape or form)

EDIT: I know i have another thread further below, but this is a serious question for a change.

I don't have any experience in this but from what I understand the power cable for an amp is the same no matter which country it is in, so what you would probably need is just an adaptor. I don't know what standard voltage is in Aus but many British-made amplifiers also have a voltage selector on the back of the amp, so you can play the amp in either the US or Europe without an adaptor. Not sure if either of those voltages works in Australia though.

I believe American electronics are 110-120V? and Australia is 220-240V.

My amp has 2 voltage selectors. 120 for US, and 100 for Europe

I don't know if this applies to all amps, but some have volatge selectors in the back.
Ibanez -> Peavey -> Eardrums

Apparently I'm on some list of people to listen to..?

it's 220 to 240 in europe.

funky p: some amps have voltage selectors, not all. If it has a voltage selector, then it's probably (i.e. don't quote me on it, find out from someone who knows, like an electrician, or the actual amp company) ok to just find a lead that fits, once you switch the voltage.

if there ISN'T a voltage selector, then you'll probably have to get a step-down/step-up transformer. or else buy a different amp.

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.

Yes yes I know, don't ask me how that works but that's what it is. 120 for US, 100 for Europe
