Hello, I recently got a Quad Massager form Perfect Circuit

http://www.knasmusic.com/products/quadmassager/quadmassager.php

I played a gig with it in the States and all was well.

When I got to Europe, I could'nt find a converter anywhere... not to mention I couldn't find anyone making new/old power supplies that output 12VAC / 3A anywhere...

Can anyone help me? I got a quad gig coming up soon...

How about a 220/240v to 120v Step-down transformer, to step down the mains side of your existing supply:

Loads of cheap and cheerful ones:

Or if you need more power

well, looking on the Knas Music web site, the power supply for the Quad Massager is actually: 12VAC, 500mA with a 2.1mm plug:

So something that's compatible is cheap and easy to find in Europe:

Not sure where you got the 3A rating from?

Beware that outlets are different depending on the country you go to.
The one suggested by Morphology is for UK only.

any links to a EU style outlet? ideally, available in poland?

AC/AC supplies are increasingly hard to locate - I think Farnell only has one euro-plug one now: https://uk.farnell.com/ideal-power/77de-06-12m/power-supply-ac-ac-10w- 12v-0-5a/dp/2368015?st=12VAC
(try RS too - or maybe TME)

if i get something like this:

https://www.olx.pl/oferta/transformator-bezpieczenstwa-ochronny-220-11 0-12v-100w-CID628-IDwRFqW.html

will it blow my massager up?

it says "up to 9A"... but i need only .5A

bad idea?
