Our Philosophy

A message from Jody Page, PedalSnake's Inventor

A former fulltime professional guitarist, Jody retired from the road to pursue a degree in electrical engineering from NC State University.  He then spent 18 years in all aspects of electrical and computer design—hardware, software, motion control, analog, digital, electro-mechanical, noise reduction, and reliability. Jody now holds three U.S. patents (PedalSnake being one), and was a 2001 inductee into NASA's Space Foundation Hall of Fame. He was also honored in 2008 with North Carolina's Ethel Fortner Award for his ongoing contributions to art and education.

PedalSnake does not have a corporate mentality. We are not here to exploit anyone or anything, as most business executives are trained to do. I am simply a guitar player and engineer, and our only business interest has always been to share our discoveries with the guitar playing community, to make things easier and improve tone while using the most cost effective methods.

PedalSnake is not your typical product. It is a novel cabling system with a plug'n'play design, so you must choose the parts you need for your rig. It has to be this way, because there is no "standard" guitar rig, and because rigs tend to change so often.

At first, you may wonder about the plug'n'play design, but when your rig changes, you will be very glad that PedalSnake can be so easily modified. We designed PedalSnake to be a lifetime investment, and we wouldn't have it any other way.

However, plug'n'play does take a bit of effort. Because you must configure your own PedalSnake System, some simple guidelines must be followed. These are not difficult, and we are always here to help you. When set up properly, PedalSnake will always preserve your core tone, and should never increase your noise level. In fact, more often than not, PedalSnake will reduce noise.
Sometimes a customer will encounter a problem. If that happens, just contact us and we will help you get it right. If for some reason we can't solve your problems, we offer a full 30 Day Return Policy.

But not everyone is patient, or seeks our help. So you may run across reviews or posts online that claim that PedalSnake is not a good product. While everyone is welcome to their own opinion, we've found that these posts typically come from people who did not ask for help with their configuration, or did not appreciate the necessity of our plug'n'play design.

All we can say is, if you do your own research you will find that the PedalSnake World is filled with players who are thrilled with the clean stage (like nothing else out there), the easy coiling of lightweight low-voltage cable, the clear tone, lower noise levels, and reliability that will last you a lifetime.

These happy PedalSnake users are not untruthful, or less sophisticated than those who had a different experience. They just followed our guidelines and did things right, or asked us for help if they had problems.

So we want you to know, we are always here for you. Talking about guitars, pedals, and amps is our business, and we actually enjoy it. So we hope you will jump in and join us in the PedalSnake World. It really is the fastest, cleanest, quietest pedal rig experience you can have.

So keep on rocking,
Jody Page
