    Well, it appears that sometime in the next six months, I will be moving to Germany. It all sounds very cool and exciting. Then I began to wonder if I would be able to use my rig there.

    I use an Alembic F-1X preamp into a QSC power amp. Both of which are rated at 120V. Is this going to cause a problem? For those of you who have played on both sides of the Atlantic, what steps do you take to deal with the differences in power? Any other suggestion you could offer that would keep me from blowing myself up would be appreciated.

    You will need a converter. Any radio-hack will have one...

    Germany is very cool. (The Autobahn ROCKS!)

    The beer is worth the trip alone..

    All I can tell you is that we have 230V/16A, you you either need a converter/transformer or have someone modify the power supplies or your amp.
