Hi there;
I have an SF-2 in excellent condition that I'm willing to sell or swap direct for an F2-B. I'm in the UK so there would be extra costs though I would have to get a quote on exactly how much. The dollar's not brilliant against the pound just now if I let it go for 350 that's the equivalent of $580 and that's 100 or $160 less than what I payed!
Let me know if you're interested, you can email me direct if you wish ratbull6@gmail.com
Best,
Rob.

Is the SF-2 voltage switchable?
Or would modifications have to be made for it to run on 110-120V?

A quick google turned up this quote from Mica:

"You need to get an external "wall wart" power supply for the proper voltage in your country that matches the power rating (10.5-17.5 VDC) and the polarity (center contact positive) for the SF-2."

So does that mean crazyboy had to use the "wall wart" and that its already set to go for the states?

If it does not have a wall wart compatible with US power standards you would need buy one yourself as the one for the UK would not be compatible.

Hi there: just to make matters worse I bought the SF-2 from a friend of mine in Portugal so the power supply is for EU! However, don't know how this affects the voltage (I'm not that technical myself...)
I do know that a simple mains socket adapter solves the plug issue and I use this for both EU and US products I've bought, I haven't had any issues but in terms of the US products that amounts to a compressor pedal, an iPhone charger and the Mrs' hair dryer... However, as always, I would defer to the wisdom of Mica and Alembic for the final word...

This is what it says on the back (see photo), I've posted a couple of the front as well, I know they're not brilliant but rushed off the iPhone just to give you an idea...

Apologies Craig, file sizes too big so I've just emailed them instead.
For the benefit of recent posts the back panel at the power socket reads: 10.5-19.5 VDC and the diagram indicates: centre contact positive.
Phew, complicated! I'll just stick to playing bass...
