PedalSnake Introduces 24V Adapters for Strymon Power Supplies

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

Keep your head down and put in the work if you want to succeed in the gear-building business.

The accelerated commodification of musical instruments during the late 20th century conjures up visions of massive factories churning out violins, pianos, and, of course, fretted instruments. Even the venerable builders of the so-called “golden age” were not exactly the boutique luthier shops of our imagination.
