Pedal for AC 9V 800mA

    Well, the AC 9V output on my Truetone CS12 is getting lonely and I hate to see isolated power supplies go to waste. Try as I might I can't find pedals that take 9V AC power that are also within the 800mA range (Line 6 modelers for instance require 1200mA).

    What pedals need to be powered by 9V, AC, and 800mA or lower?

    Finds so far:
    - Boomerang
    - Rocktron Banshee
    - A boatload of digitech pedals https://www.amazon.com/T-Power-Adapter-Digitech-RP-300A-Processor/dp/B00CY36IUC
    - Foxrox Captain Coconut
    - original whammy

    The CS-12 can probably power the Line6 stuff no problem. Since these supplies use a different switching based technology to most transformer based isolated supplies, they can far exceed the mA ratings on the individual outputs as long as you don't exceed the total for the entire brick. Shoot Truetone an email and I'm sure they'll be able to confirm!

    I had the same question when I got mine! It irritated me so I put a post-it note over the slot and now I just call it the CS11.

    Ugh, that's what I don't want to do but to which am increasingly resigning myself. Seems like it was geared for a bunch of older pedals

    I think you are right. Most switched to the Boss-style adapters out of simplicity years ago, but some of those older pedals will never leave people's boards.

    Worst part? I could really, really use that last spot!
