Pigtronix FAQs

Yes. In fact, just one of the 18VDC 300mA power supplies that comes with every Pigtronix pedal has enough current to power almost our entire line.

Use the current draw table below and add up the current draw for all of the pedals you are trying to daisy chain and make sure it does not exceed 300mA per chain.

The power supply filtering in Pigtronix pedals is extensive, allowing you to daisy chain Pigtronix effect without noise problems or interference.

Pigtronix recommends the Godlyke 11pin Rt. Angle Daisy Chain. If you don’t need all 11pins, then just cut it to size or buy the 5 lead version

Its all about experimentation and finding your own sound. That said, here is a good starting point if you want to hook together every Pigtronix pedal in a row:

Philsopher’s Tone –> Mothership –> Philosopher King –> Aria –> PolySaturator –> Disnortion –> Envelope Phaser –> Class A Boost –> Echolution –> Tremvelope

Of course, the Keymaster opens up many more possibilities for parallel mixing and FX loops that contain multiple effects in a chain.

Tip = Wiper
Ring = Toe
Heel = Sleeve

Low Impedance (5-100K)

Same standard as Moog and Roland

The only exception is the Philosopher King, which uses high impedance (500K – 1M) mono control for the SWELL and FADE functions.

No, Pigtronix pedals do not have a battery option. If you absolutely must use a battery with one of our 9 volt approved pedals, then we recommend a 2.1mm to battery connector



The Pigtronix Space Pig (a.k.a. “Marvin”) was drawn by the multi-talented graphic artist, Verne Andru.
