Weird question. I have a Bad Cat amp that has an unbuffered loop. I find that it robs a lot of highs and lows when used. I bought a tiny visual sound buffer that when used inbetween the amps send and my effects processor completely solves the problem. The circuit is just a small mosfet that is powered by 9V. I would really like to mount the circuit inside my amp but I'm not sure where the best spot in the circuit is to find the 9V to power it? The Bad Cat does have a lighted front panel that I was thinking. Or could I do a parallel tap right from the AC (Like in the old fenders) to power the 9V power adaptor? I know it seems excessive, but I'm trying to minimize set up and margin for error on those dark stages.

Thanks!

If you have room in there I think mounting the AC adapter inside is the simplest. Otherwise I suppose it's pc board you would have to connect to?

So could I just run it parallel off the outlet in the back?

Yes, I think that would be easiest.
Since it's a tube amp, there are probably no low voltage circuits so you would have to derive something off the high voltage supply. Using the AC adapter parallel off the outlet is much easier.

Thanks! And that shouldn’t have an effect on the power to the amp? It would essentially be like plugging the amp and buffer into a power bar, right?

Yes.
Make sure everything is very secure and insulate any shock hazards.
