PedalSnake Introduces 24V Adapters for Strymon Power Supplies

Multiple Ojai and Ojai R30 units can be chained via the 24V source.

Raleigh, NC (November 6, 2017) -- PedalSnake has introduced 24V Adapters for use with Strymon’s 24V-sourced Ojai and Ojai R30 power supplies. The benefits to the pedal-using guitarist are dramatic:

  • A pedalboard-mounted power supply, with fully isolated and regulated outputs, now requires no AC power cord to be run by the user. A single PedalSnake channel connects between Strymon’s 24V source at the backline, and the Ojai R30 (or Ojai) on the pedalboard.
  • Users configure a single PedalSnake channel as a P-Line (PowerLine) and add the 24V Adapters.
  • Power ‘em all. The Ojai sports five 9V outputs, while Ojai R30 has 9, 12, and 18V outputs. All are rated a powerful 500mA, enough for all Strymon pedals, as well as larger pedals from Line 6, Eventide, Radial, etc.
  • Expandable: Never run out of outputs. Multiple Ojai and Ojai R30 units can be chained via the powerful 24V source.
  • Ultra quiet. Videos have already surfaced on YouTube comparing magnetic field noise between Strymon and other major-brand onboard power supplies. Strymon’s are the quietest in the bunch.

PedalSnake has been replacing pedals-to-amp cables in player’s rigs for years. But in the past, players choosing to keep an onboard power supply had to run a 120VAC power cord in addition to their PedalSnake. This was because PedalSnake employs easy-to- handle low-voltage cable, not safety-rated for high-voltage.

Low-voltage cable is the more elegant solution. Why run 120VAC, a voltage capable of delivering thousands of watts, to a pedalboard that requires only 1-2 watts of power? Guitar snake cables with high voltage capability require thicker insulation, often as much as 1” in diameter. PedalSnake’s low-voltage cable is light, flexible, easy to handle, and coils easily into the smallest pedalboard case.

With the 24V Method, players can now have a state-of- the-art pedalboard power supply with no AC power cord in sight, and realize the full beauty of a single-cable PedalSnake system.

Street Prices

  • PedalSnake Systems start at $87, 24V Adapters $9 each
  • Strymon Ojai $149, Ojai R30 $169

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
