    I've been using the Super Booster on my pedal chain at 9 volts for a good couple of years now. I just recently noticed that is supposed to use a 12-volt power supply. Now, it has been working fine at 9 volts. But, am I damaging the unit? Should I be worried? Everything seems to be working fine. Thank you
     
  2. I used mine at 9 volts for years without it doing anything to the pedal. It's a handy unit.
     
  3. Back in the day when I used it I didn't have an appropriate power supply so I just used the 9V. When asking MB they answered that it works, but has a little bit more headroom. I then bought a bigger power supply, connected it to the 12V outlet and didn't notice any difference at all.

    Really? Ive has this pedal for years. It’s my DI Box/cab sim (using the VLE), and a boost if needed. All this time I’ve been cursing the stupid power needs of this pedal.

    I actually came upon that solution by accident. I never knew it needed a 12V power source. I just bought it and threw it straight on my Livewire 9V daisy chain and it worked, so I figured it was cool. Honestly never had an issue with it. I just wanted to know the difference between the 9V power and 12V power draw. And make sure I'm not breaking it haha
