    I just bought a vintage Arion SFL-1, and was planning on using a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2+ to power it. Can anyone confirm if this will work? I don't want to fry it before I even get to play it.

    If it helps, the manual says:
    Power Requirements - DC9V 006P/6F22 AC adapter
    Consumption current - DC9V 16mA

    And in another section, it says:
    AC Adapter Jack - Use Arion ACA-120, ACA-220 or ACA 240.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The PP2+ will power it just fine (I've powered all of my Arion pedals off my PP2+, including my SFL-1) Give it it's own port (no daisy chaining), and FYI it will take up to 12vDC.

    GREAT pedal.

    Cool, thanks for the info. Just to clarify, this is an 80's model, not a reissue. I'm not sure if there's a difference between the originals and reissues, but I thought it might be worth mentioning. And yes, it will get it's own port, so no problem there. I didn't know about the 12v, but that's good to know. I'm really looking forward to trying it out. I've heard good things. Thanks again!

    My SFL-1 is a first gen gray box version - it’s fine. ;)
