Warning about the Line 6 Variax Cabled Power Kit

Recommended Posts

I really like being able to use the Variax without batteries and this kit is perfect for that but there is some risk with it.


One night I inadvertently plugged the TRS cable for the Variax into my Acoustic/Electric guitar and it fried the electronics.


It doesn't have a way to sense if it's plugged into the Variax before it pulses the voltage.


If you get this kit be cautious to not plug it into anything but the Variax.

Agreed nbaird. The variax TRS prevents inadvertent insertion into non-compatible jacks much the same way a 120V outlet and a fork don't.


It will take some thought to unwind that Adamsian twisted logic. 


If that was too obscure (I'm known for that) Google "much the way bricks don't"
