Just moved UK > USA - what power supply do I need now? 18V AC??
« on: February 26, 2019, 09:47:57 PM »
Just moved to the US and assume my 2box DrumIt Five PSU isn't going to cut it as it's only rated for ~230V input.

The label has all but worn off but it looks like it's an 18V AC adapter. Anybody have any more info than that? Will a standard one off eBay etc. work ok?

You would definitely need an AC/AC adaptor, not the usual AC/DC adaptors like almost all electronic devices use (inc the new Drumit3) So I would go to an electrical store and ask if they have one that will supply 18V AC. I am not sure of how many amps the drumit5 requires, so check that first.
