Can I use an USA 120V pedal on 100V voltage?

Pedal, and older Memory Man, has the power cord attached, and I don't really want to use a voltage converter or mod the pedal. I wonder if I could use it right away, since the 100-120V voltage difference would only give a tad less power to the pedal.

 

Hz is the same, 60hz.

 

Could I? Should I?

 

thanks!

It shouldn't hurt to try. I don't know what kind of power supply is in that pedal, but if it's a common transformer type then the AC output from the transformer will be a tad lower than it otherwise would be. After it's rectified, if there's still enough DC to drive the regulators then it will work. If there's not, then it won't. In either case, it shouldn't hurt anything.
