Yes, Zuma provides automatic worldwide power compatibility (100-240V 50/60Hz), and can be used internationally with the appropriate region-specific IEC cable. The IEC cable is the cable that connects from the wall outlet to the back of Zuma.
Zuma ships with the IEC cable for the region in which it is purchased. If you intend to use Zuma internationally, you will need to purchase the appropriate IEC cable for the region that you will be traveling to.
Zuma provides a total of nine – 9V DC center negative outputs, providing 500mA of current each. Two of these are adjustable outputs that can be set to 9V (500mA), 12V (375mA), or 18V (250mA). Pedals can be connected to Zuma with the included 2.1mm x 5.5mm barrel connector cables. Zuma can power most effects pedals on the market, including all Strymon pedals. However, there are some pedals that have different requirements:
My pedal requires LESS than 500mA of current:
My pedal requires MORE than 500mA of current:
My pedal requires 12V DC:
My pedal requires 18V DC:
My pedal requires center-positive polarity:
My pedal requires 15V/24V DC:
My pedal requires AC power:
****Caution: Providing too much or too little voltage to your pedals can provide undesired performance or even damage your pedals. Please make sure to check with each of your pedals’ manufacturer for recommended voltage, polarity, and current to ensure proper operation and prevent damaging your pedals with incorrect power.****
As Zuma is lightweight at 1.25 lbs, you can use Dual Lock® to mount underneath your pedalboards. When mounted in this manner, place the Zuma upside down with the rear IEC power connection aligned with one of the rear holes for your power connection.
These brackets are compatible with:
Pedaltrain Novo 18/24/32
Pedaltrain Classic 1/2/Jr/Pro
Pedaltrain Terra 42
*Zuma mounting brackets are not compatible with older model Pedaltrain boards (PT-1, PT-2, PT-JR) with holes on the rear brace instead of an open pass through for the length of the board. For those boards, we recommend affixing Zuma to your board with Dual-Lock®.
To connect Ojai units to Zuma:
Please read this FAQ for info on how many pedals can be powered when linking Ojai units.
You can link as many as 6 Ojai and/or Ojai R30 units to your Zuma, powering up to 39 effects pedals. While it’s unlikely that anyone would go to such extremes, we wanted to ensure Zuma delivers maximum flexibility and expandability. A much more likely scenario would be to link 1 or 2 Ojai units to your Zuma, powering a combination of up to 19 high and low current draw pedals.
