Questions and Answers
I tested this adapter with a "vintage" late 1980s Boss digital delay pedal, and it worked well, though the adapter added a little extra noise to the signal (could be the house). I always prefer the most quiet signal I can get , so haven't used the adapter to power FX pedals regularly, or at a variety of locations.
Obviously, the pedal's voltage requirements should match what the adapter supplies.
