Will the Modtone Power Plant's 9vAC out power a Kingsley pedal?

    Looking at the pic of the back of the Jouster, it looks like it's labeled "9vAC1a."

    My Modtone power plant has an out labeled "9V AC 1000mA regulated." Any reason this won't work? I don't want to fry anything. Anyone actually do this?

    I use the supply that came with my Jouster, so I can't comment on the Modtone from experience. However, keep in mind that some Kingsley's had 9V AC supplies and some had 12V AC. My Jouster is 12V AC and according to the Kingsley website, the new ones use a 12V AC supply. It is 12V/1A, so I assume if you found a Jouster with a 9V supply, the Modtone should work.

    Well, 9v AC is 9v AC, so no problem there. Not enough power to the pedal will just sound bad, and a regulated power supply shouldn't be able to supply more power than it's rated for. I'd say try it and see...
