How does it work?

The PedalSnake is a high quality snake cable containing 4 or 7 channels. Each channel terminates in a standard 5 pin DIN plug. Each snake offers 1 MIDI5 channel together with MIDI3 channels. Each channel will handle MIDI, guitar signals or low voltage AC or DC power.


The PedalSnake's patented wiring scheme allows unbalanced signals, MIDI, and power to be run side by side in one cable, without noise or crosstalk.


You determine what runs down each channel by the choice of "pigtail" adaptor you connect to the amp and pedal board ends of each channel.


Pigtails are available to allow single or dual (think send/return loop) guitar signals or single or dual low voltage power feeds (perhaps 9v DC and 12v DC down the same channel).


How does it help me?

Let's take an easy example. Say we have a pedal board with wah, distortion, chorus and delay pedals. Most of our pedals need 9v DC but one needs 18v AC.


We normally plug our guitar into the wah pedal which is patched to the distortion pedal and then a cable goes to the Amp input. Another cable from the amps's effects "send" runs out to the chorus pedal which is patched to the delay and another cable runs back into the effects "return".


Power comes from an extension cable bringing high voltage power to our feet - right next to our pint glass - and we have a 9v DC PSU and 18v AC PSU plugged in there. That’s a total of 4 cables running across the stage plus high voltage power where I don't want it and 15 minutes of setup time as long as I don't forget to bring a cable!


With PedalSnake life gets simpler. Firstly, we have all our high voltage power at the backline so we don't need mains cable in the performance area. We connect our 9v DC PSU to one 'snake channel that has a power pigtail set at each end. We connect our 18v AC PSU to another channel with a similar power pigtail set.


Then we connect our Amp In to the distortion pedal using a single guitar signal pigtail set. And finally we connect our send/return to a dual guitar pigtail set to connect the chorus and delay pedals.


Our setup time is minimal (most guitarists will keep the 'snake connected to the pedal board all the time) and we only have one cable across the stage. And if your setup changes in the future - you can change your pigtails to adapt!


Simple huh? Also - see our pedal boards HERE

 

New for August 2007

A new range of base cables and pigtails is now available!


Standard base cables are available in 18 foot and 24 foot lengths and a choice of 4 or 7 channels. 1 channel in each cable supports MIDI5.


New pigtails offer support for hi-power pedals and base cables and pigtails are all sold separately for true "mix and match" choice.

RS2 Dual Guitar Signal Pigtail Set



RS1-TRS Single Stereo/mono Guitar Signal Pigtail Set





MF2 I Isolated Single Power Pigtail Set





MF1-H Single High Power Pigtail Set






MF2 Dual Power Pigtail Set

£22.00

Dual PLine: Dual male, dual female (shared ground)


Dual PLine (2.1mm 2-pack); 2 male, 2 female. 15" each. Plugs into any BaseSnake channel. The female jacks accept the male plug at the end of a typical wall wart cable.

NOTES

  1. Some things to keep in mind when using MF2:

    1. Use wtih two (2) isolated DC (not AC) power supplies (wall warts).

    2. Keep total current draw (per side) to 300mA or less (about 10-15 "9V battery" type stomp boxes).

    3. Do not try to power edals whose supplies have current ratings of 800mA or more. (Supply rating and current draw are 2 different things).

    4. MF2 can be used with any 3wire channel.  MF2-I has fewer limitations, but must be used with the white 5wire channel.

  2. Both sides of MF2 share one ground wire.  It is always safe (no hum) to apply power within a single pedal chain of pedals.  If powering "across" more than one pedal chain, it is possible (though not likely) to create more ground loop "hum".  If in doubt, try our Simple Hum Test.

  3. For our SnakePOWER supply, or any other power supply with built-in female output jacks (like Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2), use MM1 or MM2-I.  These have male plugs at both ends.







MF2-I Isolated Dual Power Pigtail Set

£22.00

  1. Use with any 2 wall warts---AC or DC, isolated or not. Unlike MF2, MF2-I has two separate ground wires, so it functions like 2 Single PLines when used on a 5-wire channel (the white channel on a standard BaseSnake).

  2. Limit each side of MF2-I (red and white sides) to: 1) no more than 500mA total current draw (the equivalent of about 20-25 "9V battery" type stomp boxes), and 3) pedals whose supplies have current ratings less than 1600mA. (Curent draw and supply rating are 2 different things).

  3. For our SnakePOWER supply, or any other power supply with built-in female output jacks (like Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2), use MM1 or MM2-I.  These have male plugs at both ends.




Vari-Chain Power Chain System

The Vari-Chain System.  The world's first all-right-angle, configurable-length power chain cable.  No more unused plugs to short out.  Combine 2x, 3x, 5x cables to configure any length.  Only the last plug on each is straight, to help continue the chain.  Cap off the final plug with our 21RAA right-angle adapter.  12" between all r/a plugs when chained (6" to the straight end-connectors).

REMEMBER:  When figuring which Vari-Chain parts to buy, one straight plug is used up every time you add to the chain.  So 3 x Daisy3R yields only a 7x chain, not a 9x chain.

Power chain cables allow you to use fewer power supplies.   Most 9VDC supplies will deliver enough current to power several 9VDC pedals.  For more, see Power Chains.





1ST IN THE WORLD! Convert any 2.1 power plug to space-saving right-angle

THE 1ST IN THE WORLD! Convert any 2.1 power plug to space-saving right-angle. About 3" long. Saves space on pedalboards. Convert any power supply, PLine, or daisy power-chain cable, and place pedals closer together.
