What will happen if you use a pedal with a 60v DC adapter for prolonged periods? Any thoughts appreciated!

PS. No I am NOT stupid enough to do this.

Sounds like that's way too much power. I'm guessing something will explode

Something will blow probably.
Usually you should go with whatever the pedal says. Any more, and you're bound to blow something.

That's probably what happened (my friend gave me his dead pedal, and I was smart enough to read the power supply he was using [it didn't come with the pedal]).

By the way darkarbiter7, how have you been?

I think you'd probably cook something for sure.

Some pedals have limited protection on the 9V line coming in. A typical circuit is a small (100 ohms or so) resistor in series, followed by a 9V zener diode to ground. The zener will keep the voltage at 9V in the event you plug in a correct polarity power supply with a higher voltage. If you plug in a reverse polarity power supply the zener will short it to ground (minus about 0.7V). The series resistor is supposed to absorb any extra voltage in either case.

But... a 60V supply? The resistor is going to have to drop 51V! If it's a 100 ohm resistor, then that's about half an amp of current! You'd need a resistor that could handle more than 26W in order to survive that!

Nope. That resistor is toast.
