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

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

Expression pedal – NO power needed

Pigtronix Echolution has been updated with a more accurate tap tempo function and “DUB” mode.
All Echolution pedals with serial number over 1000 have this update pre-installed.
In addition to the improved tap tempo, the following features have been added with this update:
- Loop function now includes “Dub” mode. Hold down the tap tempo swich in Loop mode to add new material.
- Reverse function enabled in all three settings (Short / Med / Long) of the Modulation mode.
The cost of the Echolution code update is $20 and includes return shipping within the USA.

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.

Yes. We recommend that you use the Voodoo Labs 2.1mm Voltage Doubler Cable in order to get the proper voltage to your Pigtronix pedals.

The Pigtronix products that are NOT COMPATIBLE with Voodoo Labs PP2 are: Echolution & Mothership


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
