EHX 16 Second Delay reissue power question

Author EHX 16 Second Delay reissue power question
ketem13
I've got a second-hand EHX 16 Sec delay pedal but I bought it without power supply.

The power supply I have is 9v 600 mA output.
Any idea if I can use it with the delay above?

Can I also split the power supply mention to use together with Red Panda particle delay?
Or is better that each pedal have it's own power supply ?

Many thanks

From this page is says it needs a 9VDC 500 mA center positive supply:

Also look at this thread on their forum, you may be able to write to them and get a manual? thumbs up

I don't think a 600 mA supply wouldn't run both pedals at the same time very well since the Red Panda wants 250 mA.

Thanks! useful links here!

Edit: how can I know if my power supply is center positive ?

It seems I can run the 16 sec delay pedal with 600ma but cannot run both the 16 sec delay and the red panda.
I will purchase another power supply for it.

It should be indicated on the supply, and also the pedal should show what polarity it expects, although sometimes manufacturers don't print it on the pedal. angry

There is a little graphic symbol that is used to indicate the polarity:


If your pedal needs a polarity that is the opposite of what your power supply is you can get a little adapter to flip the polarity:

It's clear now smile
many thanks!

Normally guitar pedals run on a center NEGATIVE power supply; it sounds like your delay is an oddball, so don't use a normal pedal supply on it!

EHX sells OEM replacement wall warts. Don’t monkey around. Send them an email, tell em what you have and get the right power supply. I love my reissue 16 second delay and use it with my easel a la Cohen. Take care of it.

This one I found next to my home should be fine
output 9v dc 1000 mA center positive

I just got it and from the few hours I play with I'm already in love love

One issue I have is that the sliders are really stiff to move. I guess originally it should be smooth isn't it ?

Any idea what can I do in order to soften it ?

Thanks

I've never had that particular device so I can't say how it should feel or what the best way to improve the feel would be. You should write the company for maintenance advice but my first thought would be to try some Caig fader lube:

I bought it new around the year 2000?
The faders were never smooth. But with use they get a little smoother
