    Hey everyone,

    I have searched for this on TGP in the past and there are numerous threads relating to individual pedals. I have never got an exact answer and ultimately have had to just take a chance and see. Thought I'd post my experience with powering 9V pedals with 12V. This thread doesn't concern itself with the sound or change in tone. Just with pedal failure or damage at 12V. Luckily I have never had this happen to me but I'm sure someone may have, and it would help to post that info here to prevent some other poor bugger from ruining his pedal.

    List of 9V pedals I have personally used safely at 12V:

    1. MXR Smart Gate
    2. MXR Dynacomp
    3. Dunlop Rotovibe
    4. MXR Micro Flanger
    5. MXR MC404 CAE Wah
    6. MXR Custom Badass '78
    7. Ibanez TS7
    8. Delta Lab Tube Overdrive
    9. SD Pickup Booster
    10. SD Tweak Fuzz
    11. TC Electronic Polytune
    12. TC Nova Repeater
    13. TC Hall of Fame Reverb
    14. BBE Sonic Stomp
    15. Boss LS-2
    16. Boss RC20XL Looper
    17. Boss SD-1
    18. Boss PW-10 Wah
    19. Boss BR 600 Recorder
    20. Korg DST-1 Distortion
