Wait until someone else who is sure answers before you try it, but I think the higher current rating on the PS will be fine. Let's say the wireless unit draws 200mA of current. Your other supplies are rated higher than that so you should be OK.
A while back at radio shack looking for a transformer, They said that the milliamps have to match also or there's a risk or damage. I don't know if they were correct or not. Ended up replacing everything because I couldn't find one that matched.
I talked to the company who supplied the wireless mic today and they supplied a transformer to use with it. The transformer is 12vAC 1.25A .... according to the users manual, the unit uses 12vAC 250mA. Seeing they supplied the transformer I will try it and see if it works OK.
Cool John, is there any info I can read about this? I have a tendency to just get the closest transformer I can find when one stops working. Infact until now I only checked for the voltage and mA readings, ignoring DC/AC and polarity!
P.S. hope you don't mind but I am copying and pasting this info into a text document so I can refer to it quicker than searching for the post online.
Shane - Im not sure where to read about it. I know D!ck Smith and Jaycar sells both stabilsed and unstabilised types. I recently had to replace one for a digital TV box, which needed to be stabilised. Ive also bought unstabilised ones for powered speakers that hummed badly until I added some hefty caps to smooth them.
Id be interested to know what type of supply is normally recommended by manufacturers of effects pedals?

Folks, just wanted to add that when you get a transformer that big for so little current draw, you're carrying a lot of weight for nothing. It's always good to have "spare" current, but five times the need seems a little too heavy for me.
