murf 105 functionality

Post by supercluster » Tue Feb 09, 2010 5:29 am

Hey guys, I have a murf that i've owned for along time. Haven't used it recently and i tested it out tonight and i cant seem to control the drive or output? I looked on the moog website and it says the MF105 "needs" a 300ma 9v tip + adaptor. i checked and sure enough i wasnt using a 300ma adaptor, the adaptor was 200ma. I tried plugging into another radioshack adaptor that is 300ma and 9v and I cant get the moogerfooger to power on. This is obviously bad, am I totally out of luck here? Is there anything that I might be missing? Why would the device be partially working with the 200ma adaptor? Maybe i'm just screwed here? If anyone can give me a tip on what the problem is or just tell me i broke the pedal i'd appreciate it.

You've probably got the polarity round the wrong way with your new adaptor. Make sure it's a centre-positive adaptor (like it says on page 17 of the manual), a centre-negative one like most Boss and other brand pedals use won't work.
