TM-1 European power supply question
MUFF WIGGLER Forum Index -> Metasonix  
Author TM-1 European power supply question
Mosiej
(Forgive me if this is addressed elsewhere)

Anyway I lugged my TM-1 to Europe and am deathly afraid of it exploding or me dying trying to plug it into a European outlet. Anyone got any leads in Europe where I can get a power supply for it?

Thx y'all!

This is one that Metasonix recommends.

This will also work, though you have to solder a 2.1mm coaxial power connector to it.

heck yes ! thanks a ton nanners

Is there anyway to get some sort of converter for the US power supply? or is a better / safer choice to get another one?

Also should I get the 60 W or 150 W?

Don’t use the US power supply overseas. The 50Hz power in Europe will likely melt the power supply.

I've heard that MOST 60 Hz transformers will work on 50 Hz, but it's "not guaranteed". Sometimes you will find one that is marginal and runs too hot on the wrong frequency. Transformers that work at 50 or 60 do exist, but I never see them in low cost AC wall warts.....

I am still a bit confused.. the link you provided it only comes in 60w or 150w option.. Still haven't found a soultion yet.. and I need to get this beast back up and running

I think you're confusing wattage with hertz. (Two conversations going at once can be confusing).
The US electrical supply oscillates at 60Hz, and Europe uses 50Hz
Wattage is just a function of voltage and current.

The Conrad power supply I posted comes in 60 watt rating only. I don't know why you are talking about a 150 watt version. Do not use a 150 watt version. Use the ones linked to.

(with a 2.1mm coaxial plug added--talk to a technician if you don't understand any of this, please!)

Yes, this is true; in general. However, the units supplied with my S-1000 and TM-(something... I’ve forgotten as it has been more than 10 years) melted at 50Hz when used with a step-down. I subsequently bought all new 220V/50Hz unit’s.
