Power Your Variax!

Keep your Variax running with the Line 6 Variax Cabled Power Kit. Not only does this kit power your Line 6 Variax, it also functions as a direct box. The supplied 15' Planet Waves 1/4" TRS cable powers your Variax and sends the guitar's signal to the XPS A/B box. The XPS sports a 1/4" and an XLR output. Send the 1/4" signal to your amp and the XLR to the main board. By hitting the A/B button you can switch where your signal is sent to. This is perfect for acoustic guitar models that will sound better running straight through the mixer as opposed to your guitar amp. This kit adds flexibility and unlimited power to any Variax. Never worry about battery life again with the Line 6 Variax Cabled Power Kit.

Line 6 Variax Cabled Power Kit Features:
  • Power your Variax at gigs or in the studio without worries
  • XPS A/B box works as a direct box sending your signal to your amp or mixer
  • Includes 9V power adapter to power XPS and your Variax
  • 15' Planet waves TRS guitar cable included
Keep your Variax powered with the Line 6 Variax Cabled Power Kit!

If you own a Variax, this is a must-have. Lithium ion batteries are fine, but they go bad, don't last long enough, and at $50 a pop, they're not cheap for the average musician. The cabled power kit, however, is a great value. Both the power supply and the foot switch are built road tough. And the Planet Waves instrument cable is rugged and high quality. This is money well spent, good for the environment and easy on your wallet.


Thanks for all......I can use again my variax 300 because last year I stole my briefcase with the POD inside it... :O(

So glad I got one!

This is the cat's *** if you have a James Tyler Variax guitar and want to use acoustic and electric sounds in your live set. I am blown away at how well this box works in my rig for live gigs and recording. Having just one cable to the guitar which provides power (no battery required now) and takes the signal back is genius. I am so glad I finally got my hands on one.

Handy little box

Welll, it does exactly what it's supposed to. Never have to worry about charging my variax, and the xlr line out means I can send acoustic sounds straight to the PA just by stepping on the switch. I was afraid that, this being an active unit and all, it might mess with the signal that some of my more sensitive fuzz and overdrive pedals see. However, everything still cleans up great with the volume knob. Great to have if you've got a variax.

It works!

The cord, switch and power supply all work great. Not having to worry about charging the battery is convenient. It may be a bit over-priced but not so much that I'd return it. It 'feels' like a quality unit but I haven't had it long enough to attest to its durability. So far, I'm entirely satisfied with it. Of course, Sweetwater's service was impeccable.
