Stage Magic Launches Second Generation PedalSnake
August 2, 2004
Stage Magic recently announced the introduction of the all-new PedalSnakeG2 system. Featuring many enhancements over the original G1 PedalSnake, the G2 offers guitarist the ability to expand or change their pedal setup without sacrificing their original PedalSnake investment.
PedalSnake is Stage Magic's patented "FX pedal solution" that carries both instrument audio signals and low-voltage effects-pedal power in a single cable. It eliminates the clutter of cables that run between a musician's effects pedals and amplifier, without multiple pedal-power supplies, unnecessary guitar cords and AC power extension cords. G2 provides a single, flexible, multi-line "snake" cable which is easy to handle onstage, easy to coil for storage, and quickly plugs-in with its color GuitarLines and low voltage PowerLines. Time is saved and the look is very clean .
Since guitarists change their rigs so often, PedalSnake G2 is a "system" concept. When a guitarist's rig changes, G2 easily changes as well. A total of eight (8) mono GuitarLines and PowerLines is now possible, as well as stereo audio, "foot switch" lines and different power connectors.
"The Generation 2 PedalSnake is an exciting entry into the guitar FX pedal market," says Jody Page, Stage Magic President. "Our new MIDI "interface connector" was chosen as a "highly reliable" connector, and now allows the immediate use of MIDI, with no mod's or adapters. GuitarLines and PowerLines are created with Plug and Play Pigtials (P3's) having female MIDI connectors. These P3 interfaces allow the user to select a mix of up to eight (8) analog Guitarlines and PowerLines for any pedal system configuation. G2 also lowers PedalSnake costs. Combine this flexibilty and affordability with our patented shielding scheme and PedalSnake G2 will revolutionize how guitarists design and use their pedal rigs."
PedalSnakeG2 uses high quality twisted-shielded-pair microphone cable which is specially wired to eliminate crosstalk between unbalanced GuitarLines and PowerLines within the snake. This patented process insures noise free performance without any sound or tone coloration.
