Starbug, he is not talking about a step-down converter but just a plug adapter. As Octavian mentioned, the box can take the input of 100 to 240V, which means a step-down converter is not needed.

Octavian, since you have checked (and I just checked mine too) that the box can take up to 240V, it does mean that you don't need a converter, but the plug will be different in Germany, so you need to get a plug adapter. You can get a general purpose one that can be used in different countries.

Ok, so that was the easy answer.

However, if you are going to use it for 8 months, you might want to consider getting a small voltage converter (or step-down converter as mentioned earlier) in additional to the plug adapter (option 2). A converter would change the voltage from 220 V to 110V. So you would go with an adapter on the wall plug, followed by the 220 to 110 converter, then your piano box. This way the piano box gets heated less.

The PA300B/PA301 works on 100-240Volts AC. As these adaptors have a separate mains lead, all you need to do is to get a 'figure of 8' mains lead from your local electrical store when you get to Europe and use that with your existing power adaptor. Frequency (50/60 Hertz) has no effect.
