Re: [Harp-L] Urgent advice needed ART Tube MP
Thanks for the info
My battery powered crate has a special adapter. (went missing)
I let my friend use it as long as she went to the electronics store and got me a replacement adapter.
They did provide one...I was shocked that it cost half as much as the battery powered crate amp....oops.
It did fit in every way...but no...check the good will ..storage unit..etc...first...before you buy replacement.
Of course, I found the missing adapter the next day...felt kinda bad...
Crate Taxi. makes a great street rig...it has one lowZ input with eq. and another channel for the harp with sep. volume....
I would recommend the medium size one ...because the vocals are a bit thin.
It fits on the back of my bike and I use it for sitting in on small venues with large crowds..(street fairs....store stoops...ah yes , the glamorous life.)

>> Hey Rick, the 700 ma rating only means that this is the MINIMUM that the unit requires. In other words, if you were thinking plumbing, 700 gallons is what the unit NEEDS. So, your adapter is fine because it is capable of 1,300 gallons. Does this make sense to you?
>> The serious thing about electrics and electronics is to not overload a circuit with VOLTAGE (which is like water PRESSURE..and can blow OUT a unit). An electric or electronics unit DRAWS power..it isn't forced in. This power USAGE is usually measures in watts. Now depending on how many watts you DRAW and at what VOLTAGE, this will five you the amps you need.
>> Your adapter isn't FORCING the electric in. The unit is 'sipping' electric FROM the available source. And since your source is already at 1.3 amps (1300 ma), your 'sippage' is well under the available reservoir of power.
>> Actually, having a little more power is a GOOD thing..as running things right ON the limit of their capabilities has a tendency to overheat them.
>> At on;y a sparse 9 volts, you have no worry on that end.
