Just got one of these off of ebay to sync with a linndrum. Unfortunately, the seller didn't mention that it doesn't come with a power supply. Does anyone know what the voltage is for the PSU, and if it's center pin negative? Google looks like it gives me 9 volts or 4 volts, center pin negative but it's hard to say who's right.

According to this photo I found, it looks to be 4V, but doesn't specify polarity. You might try contacting Dan Garfield. I contacted him a couple of years ago and bought a NOS Modulator from him, but I think his remaining inventory has been purchased in bulk and he doesn't really want much to do with that stuff. It's still worth a shot.

Thanks Z! Do you know his email address still? Any chance you could PM it to me?

Unfortunately, my computer crashed Dec. 2013 and I lost everything from 2011-to Dec. 2013.

I found his phone number on a resume he had posted online somewhere and called him - or it might have been his email address - I've slept since then :)
