so i'm wanting to start using my boss bf-3 flange pedal again but i've run out of 9v inputs on my dunlop brick and have no more outlets available on my 6way for another adapter, so i was wondering if it's ok to plug the pedal into the 18 volt side of the brick? will this hurt the pedal since it's a 9v pedal?

Thanks-

Use only the specified AC adaptor (PSASeries),
and make sure the line voltage at the
installation matches the input voltage
specified on the AC adaptor's body. Other
AC adaptors may use a different polarity, or
be designed for a different voltage, so their
use could result in damage, malfunction, or
electric shock.

it doesn't say anything about being able to handle 18v

if the pedal was designed to run on 9v only, things will probably fry. if it was designed to take either 9v or 18v you should be good.

10 or 12 volts may not be an issue but good chance 18v would be a problem. Boss pedals seem to be more sensative to voltage etc than some other brands.

ok, thanks for the help everyone. glad i decided to get some 2nd opinions before i tried it. i would have hated to fry a 120.00 dollar pedal
