    I have constructed 9v PSU from Guitars of Love but when I plug it in to the above pedal it just hums and the 9v LED dims down.
    I have read conflicting views about neg /pos polarity

    Can someone help me with this problem please and could I have damaged the pedal if I had wrong polarity

    Many Thanks

  2. Isn't the polarity indicated on the pedal?

    Looking at my Boss adapter, the center is negative.
    pretty hard to break a Boss pedal tho
