    Would greatly appreciate some advice on this guys ...

    I bought a job lot of 4 Danelectro pedals (with power adaptors) yesterday and the seller told me I needed to use the 120v adaptors he was supplying or it would damage the pedals ... (but not all of what he supplied were 120v)

    What I got was: Cool Cat Chorus DC-1, Fab Tone Distortion DD-1, Dan-o-matic tuner DT-1, Psycho Flange DF-1 plus the 4 adaptors (1 DA-2 and 3 DA-1s, 2 of which are the 120v 2 prong american type.

    The Chorus is 18v requiring 300mA so logically this goes with the DA-2 which is 18v/150mA and 240v.

    The tuner is 9v / 300mA, as is the Flanger and also the Distortion ...

    The adaptors supplied were:
    1 x DA-1 9.6v 200mA 240v
    2 x DA-1 9.6v 200mA 120v


    I am wondering why the seller would insist that I use the 120v adaptors?
    Surely the 240 DA-1 would work perfectly well with all pedals apart from the Chorus?

    Help!
