How do I use a tuner with the Variax 600 A/B box?
by johnyp_2000 on 2013-02-18 12:18:44

Hi everyone! I just purchased a Variax 600 on Ebay so I'm new to the forum. My question is this: I know I have to use a TRS cable from the guitar into the A/B box. Do I put my tuner before or after it?

After, because you need the TRS to power your Variax. Putting a pedal between the guitar and the power supply would make the power go to the wrong place, and not your guitar.

ALL pedals go after your power supply.

Also congrats on your purchase. I got a 600 on ebay last month as well! Awesome guitar.

Thanks for the reply! I've piecing this into my pedalboard. I also tried plugging my regular Tele into the A/B box using a standard 1/4 inch cable and it works fine. Does anyone know if this will cause and damage to the guitar or the box?

You can plug any guitar into it. The box only gives power when it sees a variax plugged into it (Which is was the LED is for). If it's green, then you have a Variax. If it's off, you either have nothing plugged in or a regular guitar plugged in.

So yeah, you can use a reg guitar just fine. You can use it as a splitter if you wanted to
