    hi! i got am new amertican big muff some month ago, and been using it with a battery.

    between the input and the output it has some kind of poewer suppy input, but i never seen one like that.

    is this for powering the pedal? in that case, do i need a special power suuppy? what voltage/polarity i nned?

    thancks!

    other thing...

    i just checked out the power supply of my tube zipper, and its AC/AC, which i never seen one before for powering a pedal.

    that means that i HAVE to use that addapter for the zipper. but the muff let me use a battey so i asume it can be powered with a regulrar AC/DC suppy.

    hey thancks!

    i noticed that a regular 1/8 mono plug fits perfectly. so if i want to make my own adapter; which will be the - and which the + ?

    it is imposible to me to order an adptar cause it cant be shipped to uruguay so im making it myself
