Power connectors for pedals

    Hello,

    I posted this on the NYC pedalboards thread but perhaps giving it its own little home will bring in more responses...

    My EH micro bass synth and moogerfooger will be housed on a pedalboard, and I have a DC Brick that I use for powering the pedals. Now, the problem is that the MF uses an inverted polarity connector, and the EH runs on 24 (!!!) volts (according to what it says on the wall wart). the questions are:
    1. will I find inverted polarity connectors (mini jack to barrel) anywhere? (how about Radioshack, might they have something like this?) and if not, how hard is it to make these yourself?
    2. do you think I can run the EHMBS on the 18v outlet of the DC Brick?

    Cheers,

    nk
