Effects pedal ac power?????

I have an old DOD Compressor Sustainer that runs on 9v batteries. Is there any way I convert the 9v into ac power so I don't have to buy batteries all the time? It say this on the bottom: For ac operation use a 10v DC negative ground power supply. What does this mean?

Your DOD compressor should have an input for a power supply if that is what it says on the bottom. At that point, you can simply go to radio shack and get a 10v power supply.

Do they look like a headphone input? Cause there is one of those next to the actual input. Other than that just a 9v thingy in the back.

It could look similar to a headphone input. Chances are if it isnt the input or output jack, it's the spot for the AC adapter.

Found an ac that barely works in my one drawer. There's alot noise in my signal not sure if it's the pedal or the crappy cable I am using since I only have one good cable.
