Ok, this is an update to my quest to find a power supply for my Beat Buddy.
A short summary: I got a Beat Buddy from a friend. He couldn’t find the power supply. No big deal, I have a bunch laying around my studio. To my dismay none of them would stay connected. If you moved the pedal (or stepped on the switch) it would disconnect. I contacted Singular Sound to see about purchasing a replacement power supply only to be told that they do not sell power supplies for the Beat Buddy. ???
I ordered three different power supplies and none of them would stay connected. One of our fellow users, smoy, said that he used a One Spot power supply and it fit tight and stayed connected. So I ordered one and when I got it I plugged it in and yes, it stayed connected with no issue. So I grabbed my digital caliper and measured the plug on the power supplies that did not stay connected and then measured the One Spot. Here is what I found:
The supplies that wouldn’t work measured .214 for the diameter of the barrel. The One Spot measured .220. I also measured the length of the barrel. The ones that didn’t work were .432 inch long and the One Spot was .349 long.
.214 vs One Spot at .220 diameter
.432 vs One Spot at .349 length
I’d be interested in knowing what the dimensions on the original power supply are.
I don’t know why Singular doesn’t sell a replacement power supply for the Beat Buddy but for anyone else needing a power supply the One Spot does the trick.
Thanks again, smoy…
