B3K power supply for a noob

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by burnd out, Dec 11, 2017.

  1. I just got my new Darkglass B3K in the post and am now turning the house upside down to find a power supply ( yeah i know).
    The closest i can find to the manual 9v @ 20mA is 9v @ 200mA. I will have to cut the cord and re wire in reverse so the + & - are correct but what is a mA and will this do? please help?

    mA tells you how much juice the power supply can provide / how much the pedal may consume. If the power supply provides more than the pedal (pedals) consume, you're good.
    However I'd recommend getting a dedicated power supply anyway, to avoid any accidental damage.
  3. Cool cheers. So volts is the only thing to be concerned about?
    Yeah, will sort proper power in time ( i just assummed with the amount of crap we have laying around it would be this hard)
    For now i just want to play.

    Sure, if voltage and polarity is correct the pedal will work.

    I recommend going for a truetone 1spot if the B3K is your first or only pedal.

    They're affordable and work great with short signal chains.

  6. Hey, oh wow.... Yeah will do, i have decided not to cut up the telephone charging cable for now and will grab something tomorrow. I could kick myself for not sorting this before.
