Just bought a JVT-59 and love it! I am looking at an XPS Pedal to a/b between the PA & Amp, but mostly want it to power the guitar instead of using the battery.

 

I am unsure about how this works... It appears that there is only a 1/4" input on the box - does a standard 1/4" guitar cable work? Do you need a special cable? Am I way off and this does not power the guitar?

 

Thanks!

The XPS box will power the JTV but you need to use a TRS (stereo) cable. It will not recharge the battery.

Basically the ring will be the line where the power is transferred.

You can also power via VDA and a POD (X3 or HD500)

I just bought a new XPS a/b pedal, but with no power supply. I picked up a cheap AC 9V 2000mA adapter and here is what happens:


 


It does power the JTV 59


But, the power light never comes on


 


The XLR & 1/4" lights work


But, no matter which of those is lit the signal is always coming out the 1/4"


 


So, bad pedal? Or, bad power supply that isn't allowing the pedal to reach its potential?

It sounds like you're not using a TRS cable. With a regular guitar cable, you're only sending audio from the pedal - not power from the pedal to the guitar.

Thanks... Actually was using a TRS cord and it did power the guitar. I've ordered a proper Line 6 power supply and we'll see if that was the issue.

Does it matter if the TRS is balanced or unbalanced? Mine is balanced...

No it doesn't matter.  The TRS is only to supply power as well as transfer the guitar output.  It's not stereo.
