  • Roland SPD-S power adapter

    Hey guys does anyone know where I can find a power adapter for the SPD-S?

    Well I can tell you the supply you need is 9V DC @ 1000mA (1A).
    Sadly I am unable to tell you the polarity. Get it wrong and you might fry the SPD as 1A is a fair amount of current.

    I would contact Roland, no doubt they will sell you a replacement. You best sit down before they tell you the price. If you ask them nicely they might tell you the polarity.

    Perhaps a fellow SPD owner could provide the info on the polarity. A trip to Radio Shack (or a similar electrical outlet) would then be called for.
    I would recommend getting a regulated power supply too.

      I believe all Roland/Boss power adapters are negative center (but there are certainly some on eBay claiming to be Roland compatible which are actually positive center and therefore useless).

        Thanks for the reply I'm going to give them a call. I saw those for sale on ebay but none of them actually said "spd-s" so I didn't pull the trigger thankfully.

          I'm preaty sure it's negative to the center. I'm using it that way. Besides, eBay offer shows that polarity (https://www.ebay.com/p/1794436463?ii...=ps&dispctrl=1)

            What does a look in manual of the module say? Normally those details are listed in the technical details section / or the requirements...there don’t have to be a call...

            Edit:
            Ok, not quite fair and not shown in the official manual, but the Roland Museum (http://www.rolandmuseum.de/zubeh/html/netzteil.html) shows the details: Plus polarity is on the outer ring, minus the inner pin.

            Hope this helps
