Always did I want to get rid of that dreaded wallwart.
Outside with a Wavedrum and even with an FX pedal, a looper or recorder ..
Im having my DIY soldering solution already for a while.
Now in 2020 there is an easy and cheapo solution for non solderers.

Basics first:
The Wavedrum is powered by 9 Volt DC positive tip ,
current draw 240 mA, maybe a bit more during startup.

This cable gives you 9 Volt from any powerbank USB port,
attached plug is 5,5mm 2,1mm positive tip

THE ADAPTER
5.5.mm 2.1mm to Korg small 9 Volt input
Arrow https://www.thomann.de/de/myvolts_ripcord_aa839ms.htm
also works for Korg Volka and ... what else Korg ???

Alternative USB to 9 Volt converters:

cheap at 1,78 buck (shipping included). Quality ?

Hello Waterdrum, this is very interesting to me. Do you talk about a Wavedrum Global Edition? The Global has a draw of 1,7 A as I read in the manual. Will it work with the myVolt Adapter? Thanks for an answer

These 1.7 A are the max current that the Korg wallwart can deliver.

The WD uses only 240 mA or a bit more.
This was measured by Midisaron some years ago.
The Global is not much different.
Just do it ... happy.
