Three Types of BaseSnake Channels
 
 
 
3wire Channel
  • Terminates in 5pin DIN connectors (like MIDI). 
  • Only 3 pins are wired (the original MIDI format). 
  • Supports one-way MIDI signal, with no phantom power. 
  • Shielded for guitar audio signals.
  • Replaces an amp footswitch cable hvaing 5pin DIN plug (3 pins wired).
G-Line Pigtails  All G-Line Pigtails can be used on a 3wire channel. 

P-Line Pigtails  All P-Line work on a 3wire channel except:
  • MF2-I and MM2-I  Two Dual Isolated P-Lines PIgtails require a 5wire channel.
  • MF1-H Single P-Line Pigtail varies in current capacity:
    • It is limited to (roughly) 500mA on a 3wire channel.  This is enough to power for a dozen or more 9V stomp boxes. 
    • MF1-H becomes Hi Current when used on a 5wire channel (see below).
