I run my Diamond Jr on 9V standard.
EDIT: Voltage doublers for pedalboards are easy to find.
WTH, this is so lame. I coulda just bought the junior if I had any inkling that it wasn't powered normally. I have 18v, but apparently that's not enough. I just emailed Diamond; hoping there's some workaround. Otherwise this pedal is useless to me, because I am not using a separate power cord for it.
That's not the issue. I have 18v on my power supply.
That sucks, bummer.
For me it's worth it. Just a different cord to me. But I get your frustration. I also think it's darned strange.
I like putting a compressor in front, it keeps my hotter basses from breaking up earlier than I would like. Just a little peak limiting seems to make a big difference.
Well, my second favorite comp is the OvniFX Smoothie. Hard to come by. I'm an opto comp kinda guy. I always wondered what the Ampeg Opto Comp sounded like, but I'm not changing anything on my board, so it's useless to even try.
Scubadoo on TB has an incredible comp Thread.
The OvniFX site is also incredible for all things bass comp.
The impression I’ve gotten from you is that the Cali76 would be up your alley
heheh. Stirs pot
Well given that I might be in the market again, I’m open to suggestions. The frustrating thing is that it seems I need to find this stupid power supply to verify the thing even works just to sell it.
Ugh.. I almost made the same mistake before I bought mine. I was searching through the pedalboard photo threads to see how others had it set - I caught the plug thing reading some of those posts. If you have the option to swap or return, it's worth it IMO.
Yeah, well given that I basically don’t even think I need one with this amp, I might just put the Spectracomp back in play, find a decent TonePrint, and try it in a really low setting.
Aaannndd the response from the seller, LOL: "Did you use the red cable that i sent in the package? There’s a small bridge cable that needs to be used as an adapter. Also it works on 9V but it is happier at 18V"
I saw the cable, but just assumed he was throwing it in and put it in my bag/didn't use it. LOL. So I will try that later and see if it works. If it does, I will be happy.
Aww yeah! Hope that works for you.
Yeah....if I didn't fry it last night :-(
Or the Empress!
There is a super simple solution and it is a little patch cord that reverses the polarity. IIRC all the previous regular size Diamond came with one. They'll probably send you one for free, or you can order one on line from multiple sources.
EDIT: Didn't see your post above...that little cable is your friend and the one I was referring to.
Read on brother Al
Yeah, I got a phone call, stopped reading, and started typing! Those who don't read (or in this case didn't) have no advantage over those who can't!
Lol. True indeed
Well my second D-800+ arrived yesterday. Just as I was finishing loading the car to head out for a gig. Got it out of the box and into it's bag and stowed it into the house for later. So in my excitement I used my current D-800+ for last nights gig. Any way gigging today so the new head gets a outing to make sure all is good. I would be shocked if it wasn't. So without further delay....
Keeley Compressor Pro.

And another observation.
The Subway cabinet line.
There is no cab IMHO in the Subway line more versatile than the 212. I own 2. I also own two Subway 410s. Yes the 410s ROCK! Whether you are using one or two of them, they deliver.
That being said.
The Subway 212. Dayum. These bring bass to the party. Along with the smaller foot print and lighter weight these things are just an all around, does it all cab. Amazing lows. All the way down to the low B. Bright piercing highs that are easy to control. Especially with the compressor. And the mids are astonishing.
I get the love people have for the Subway 15's. Whether it's the 115 or the 215. I'm sure these cabs are amazing. And if I hadn't gone down the 212 road I probably would be pushing a pair of them. Unfortunately I haven't had the opportunity to try them. It's probably for the best. All I need is to fall in love with another speaker configuration. With two 212 and two 410 cabs already on hand adding two more. Basically Whoppers of a cab to the heard isn't what I need.
So what I hope people take away from this is "don't discount" the Subway 212. Easy to move. Tone that never disappoints. And truly a beauty to behold.
Ok! By the way. When you stack 212's....
Well hopefully some here will get that experience one day. Tomorrow night I will.
