Product Description

Huge horsepower, small size.

Power your pedals with Ojai—the highest horsepower, most technologically advanced effects pedal power supply of its size. Ojai delivers clean, rock-steady power to your effects pedals in a lightweight and expandable package, giving you flexibility and room to grow.

You get five high-current, individually isolated, ultra-low-noise outputs—each with its own dedicated regulator and custom transformer. Each output provides a massive 500mA of current.

Ojai’s dual-stage topology, pre-regulated outputs, optically isolated feedback, and advanced multistage filtering result in a power supply that allows your pedals to achieve their highest possible dynamic range.

Dual isolation.

Ojai’s all analog circuitry offers two stages of isolation, completely eliminating ground loop and AC line noise issues, allowing your pedals to sound like they were designed to sound.

World tour ready.

With automatic international power compatibility built-in, Ojai delivers clean, reliable power to all your pedals, on any stage anywhere you play in the world.

Never run out of outputs.

Have a growing rig? Ojai is part of an expandable system. Gain more outputs by connecting additional Ojai units to the 24V Thru jack. Or use Ojai to add five more outputs to Strymon's Zuma power supply (sold separately).

Hear your pedals, not your power.

Many popular guitar pedals were originally designed to work with batteries. Since batteries are inherently very low noise and not susceptible to ground loops, these pedals often were not designed to be resistant to noise from power supplies. Our ultra-low-noise design prevents power noise from bleeding into the audio signal, allowing your pedals to deliver the highest possible dynamic range.

World tour ready.

Playing gigs all around the world? No need to purchase separate power supplies for your international tour. Ojai has automatic worldwide power compatibility built-in (when connected with the appropriate IEC cable). Whether you’re on 120V, 240V, 100V, or any variation in between, Ojai will deliver clean, reliable power to your pedals, even if the venue has dirty power.

Dual isolation.

Ojai’s all analog circuitry offers two stages of isolation. Each of the five output channels is individually isolated from the 24V DC, and the 24V DC is isolated from the AC input power, eliminating ground loop and AC line noise issues. Ojai also provides dual power regulation: Wide-bandwidth optically isolated feedback loops on each channel, as well as on the input, allow both the input and outputs to adjust for changes, ensuring solid output under changing load conditions.

Energy efficient.

Don’t let the blue chassis fool you: Ojai is green at heart. Significantly more efficient than linear power supplies, Ojai is able to deliver substantially more current while handling a much wider range of input voltages. Ojai’s high efficiency design delivers high-current power distribution in a compact unit, for a small carbon footprint and a small pedalboard footprint.

Design Team

Our power design team has over 25 years of experience in power system design, from developing mission-critical power systems for the aerospace industry, to developing best-in-class power supplies for top-selling power amplifiers, studio monitors, guitar amplifiers, and more. We’re using this vast experience to provide clean, dependable power to all of your effects pedals.

Breakthrough Technology

Strymon has solved the switching power supply problem. With our dual-stage topology, pre-regulated outputs, optically isolated feedback, and advanced multistage filtering, we have designed a switching power supply that is actually quieter than linear units.

Audio Testing

To make sure your pedalboard delivers the best sound quality possible when powered by Ojai, we did extensive listening tests with every pedal we could get our hands on, and we audio test each and every unit in our lab. In fact, every Ojai power supply unit goes through the same rigorous Audio Precision testing that our pedals go through. With Ojai, your pedals will sound the way they were designed to sound.

What are the dimensions and weight of Ojai?

Ojai dimensions: 3.2″ x 2.3″ x 1.3” (81mm x 58mm x 33mm)
Ojai weight: 4.7 oz. (133g)
Ojai power adapter dimensions: 4.2″ x 2.15″ x 1.25” (107mm x 55mm x 32mm)
Ojai power adapter weight: 4.7 oz. (133g)

How many Ojai units can be linked together, powered by one power adapter?

You can theoretically link as many as 20 Ojai units together, powered from one power adapter. The amount of available current per output depends on the current draw of the connected pedals. A common setup would be to link 2 or 3 Ojai units together.

When Ojai units are linked together, how many pedals can I power?

This depends on the current draw of the connected pedals. Ojai can power 5 outputs at a full 500mA load. Most pedals consume far less than 500mA, so this means that we can link Ojai units together and still have current available to power more than 5 pedals.

2 linked Ojai units could power up to 9 high current pedals (e.g. TimeLine). 20 linked Ojai units could power up to 100 low current pedals (e.g. Boss DS-1). A likely scenario would be to link 2 or 3 Ojai units together, powering a combination of 10-15 high and low current draw pedals.

How can I mount Ojai to my pedalboard?

Ojai is incredibly lightweight, and can be mounted to the top or bottom of most pedalboards using only VELCRO® or Dual Lock™.  You may also choose to mount the included 24V power adapter in the same fashion.

Strymon BigSky - Reverb Effects Pedal 02:50

Strymon BigSky is the only effect used in the making of this video. Visit http://strymon.net/bigsky — Music by State Shirt [http://youtube.com/stateshirt] and Pete Celi. Plug into BigSky and instantly lift your sound into the stratosphere. The world below you fades into the distance, and you're elevated into a glow of lush, glorious, radiant reverbs. To create a reverb experience as natural, beautiful, and immersive as BigSky required tremendous feats of sound engineering and artistic imagination. Using the fundamentals of acoustical science as our beacon, we carefully studied and scientifically analyzed reverb technology from the past fifty years. We faithfully captured the essence of these classic sounds, and forged ahead to dream up our vision of reverbs from the future. Feel the mechanical tension of the Spring reverbs. Hear the floating particles of the Cloud machine. Defy the laws of physics with the Nonlinear reverbs. Unleash the multi-head reverberations of the Magneto machine. BigSky gives you twelve studio-class reverb machines, each with simple yet powerful controls. We knew we must take reverb to a whole new level. With careful attention to detail, innovative analog circuitry design, an insanely powerful SHARC processor, and the utilization of top-shelf components, we've developed a reverb pedal that fits on your pedal board yet has better audio quality than many rack reverb units. This fusion of science with art has just one goal. To provide you with the most musically inspirational reverb experiences possible.
