PedalSnake®

Option ONE: Keep the AC Power Cord


.

I Want To ...

  • ... Use PedalSnake to replace only my pedals-to-amp cables, and ...

  • ... Keep a power supply on my pedalboard, and continue to run the AC power cord.

    .
    NOTE You can keep a pro-grade power supply on your pedalboard, AND lose the AC power cord. See the PedalSnake-Strymon 24V Method.


.

What Do I Need?

.

Choose a 4-Channel BaseSnake

Most players with a board-mounted power supply can get by with a 4-channel BaseSnake. A very complex rig could require a 7-channel.

Choose from:

4M18 BaseSnake 4 channels, 18 feet

4M24 BaseSnake 4 channels, 24 feet

We Recommend

We want all of our customers to receive the full benefit of PedalSnake. This is why we highly recommend PedalSnake's Option TWO: Lose the AC Power Cord, and run only one cable (aka the Low Voltage Method). This method has become very easy to do with the advent of the PedalSnake-Strymon 24V Method.

You can always keep the power supplies you have. Simple rigs are easy. More complex rigs may take a little planning to ensure a quiet system. We have the expertise help you have an ultra-quiet rig using modest, cost-effective power supplies. Just contact us.

Want to keep your AC-powered, board-mounted power supply for now? No problem. You can always upgrade to this One Cable "no AC power cord" method at a later time. This is part of the beauty of PedalSnake's configurable design. It is lifetime investment that changes easily whenever you wish to change. But when you do upgrade to the Low Voltage Method, you will see that nothing really compares.
