want to buy a roland octpad while in US, but will it work back in the uk?
 
Hey so title basically says it all. Really wanting to get a Roland octapad or something similar while in the us but very unsure on if it will work back in uk. I know the sockets are different as using one to charge phone now but apparently its something to do with the woltage or something?

Just really wanted to know as really wanted to buy one!

Thanks a lot

Elliot

If it is just a power issue, can't you just get one of these?

Roland octapad uses a 600 mA 9vDC adapter, so should be little problem there.

That's what I'm hoping I'll just need but I don't know exactly and obviously I want to be certain before I haul it back home

cant you just get the power cord you need when you get back to the UK. They sell spd30s there.

I say go for it. I have it and love it. Hours and hours of fun.

I agree with Blackstone. Simply visit a Roland dealer in the UK and purchase a suitable wall wart. I'd have to check mine but I believe the actual power supply section has an input connector that enables easy swapping of the mains line. Bring that bad boy home!

I thought of that but didn't know if it would of worked but thanks for clearing it up! So excited to get one now! I've got a td4 at home as well so that's another awesome feature that I can plug parts of that into it too!

I've got an oldish carlsbro bass amp that's half decent, reckon that will work with well with it?
