How do I power Volca with a classic power brick?

Bacause its just 9V 1A, I dont see the reason why i should buy a special adapter for my volca (keys & fm).
What cable (heads) should i buy to do this?
Mayby a daisy chain? Or buy the parts and make it myself?

Anyone tried this succesfully?

You need a 1.7mm center-positive plug. Pedal power supplies are usually 2.1mm center-negative, so if you have one of those you'd need both barrel size and polarity adapter in one. For daisy chaining there are cables from both Korg and third parties but I think they all want 1.7mm center-positive as their input. Would be handy to have both the adapter and daisy chain in one.

Edit: Apologies. Misread your post. But maybe you can get the information you need from the myvolts specs.

Two options:

1. Daisy chain cable plus power supply made specifically for Korg gear. I sell both at KVgear.com. Myvolts does too.

2. Special cables for your power brick that reverse polarity and have the correct tips for Volcas. I manufacture these in small batches.
