    Hey guys,
    I just bought a Memory man at the emporium...

    the pedal is in great condition...only thing is..i cant play it...

    cos i think its designed for US power and im in singapore...now if i get a transformer...its this huge bulky thing thats there on the power supply...which i dont want....sooooooooooo

    any ideas?can i mod it...maybe do something to step down from 240 to 110

    cheers

    open up the pedal and see if u can find an internal transformer.. if there's one.. then u can buy another transformer suitable for local voltage (230V; 240V will also suffice) and just replace the stock one.. it should work after that.. and of course.. u must get the local adaptor as well. there's no pnt in getting the internal transformer changed if u use the US adaptor..

    hmm.. it shld b e simple enough if u can source the correct transformer and if you're soldered before..

    if you wanna diy.. open up your pedal first and look at the transformer model no. then find a similar model but accepts local voltage and make sure it has the same placement of screw holes otherwise you're screwed (sorry.. couldn't resist the pun :moon =P) if im not wrong.. u have to desolder some of the transformer connections then solder in the new one.. and u shld be set at least internally

    as for the ehx adapator.. u shld be able to get/order that from a local ehx distributor
