    Has anyone tried running their Crunchbox at 18 volts? What do you think?

    Do it all the time! I found it to be less compressed and a little more open sounding, even better at 24 volts.

    Thanks Grooveking, that's exactly what I'd like out of this pedal. Now.....how can I convert to 18 volt?

    thanks,
    Dale

    An 18 volt Dunlop adapter seemed to the do the job.

    Personally, I didn't care for the crunchbox at 18v. It changed the character of the pedal. It opened up the pedal but also gave it more of a bite in the highs that I didn't like, which also happened with my fulldrive at 18v. But I liked the fulldrive at 18v. The crunchbox not so much. I think this has been discussed on the forums before and remember reading that the builder perfers the crunchbox at 9v. I could be mistaken though. Memory's not what it used to be.
