T-Rex Fuel Tank Chameleon

Anyone using one? I am upgrading from a one spot and this looks like the best option for me for the price. Aside from 3-4 ods that arent picky about power, I have a nova delay and dunlop trem and I am getting some hum with the one spot. Im thinking with the Chameleon I can chain all the Ods on one output, have the nova at 12v on another, the dunlop trem on another, and Ill still have 2 more for tuner, looper, and any other pedals I add (I will be adding a BlueSky soon).

Are you asking if this would work? Sounds fine to me. Separating your digita/time-based effects from your analog effects will definitely reduce the noise level.

Yeah, I was just wander If anyone had one. I haven't really seen many on here. I guess they are fairly new though. I am also just kinda curious why so many people recommend the pp2+ when this is cheaper and has more current on tap and voltage options.

I use one. When i was looking it seemed like the chameleon was the only ps that could power my nova delay at 12v happily, an el cap, some dirt at 18v, with a couple outputs left for analog/digital. All without using any doubler cables And its been doing it all without problem so far.

I use one with a Providence Chrono delay which has similar power requirements (12v) to a TC Nova and had noise problems with its own supply, an 18v buffer (Lehle Sunday Driver), plus various 9v pedals. Works great no noise.

Another Chameleon user here, I daisy chain my dirt pedals and run an MXR flanger off the 18v output, I have another pedal which is + ground off it's own output, still space for anything else that needs isolating.
All working perfectly, no issues.

I'm happy with my Chameleon but I've got an issue with its computer-like plug on the left side. It's so big that I can't place my Chameleon in the middle of my pedalboard. I have to but it either on the left or on the right of my Diago pedalboards.

I'm also wondering if the Chameleon's housing box, which is quite thick, can be put under a T-Rex or Pedaltrain slanted board...

I've always wondered why the chameleon has been ignored on tgp, especially with the advent of all the strymon pedals! It outs out 300ma PER OUTPUT, all isolated, and lots of voltage options. Actually smokes the PP2+. I've used one under a Pt2 and Ptpro since it came out. Flawless.

All you need to do is replace the stock power cord with a right angle power cord. That way you can place it in the center of the board if you wish. I believe the height of the Chameleon is the same as the VL PP2+, 1.75". The same height as a 1U rack space.

Ok, thanks a lot.
So there is absolutely no tangible reason for prefering a PP2 to it... Except its big cable, but if it can accept a right angle plug, there's no more problem. I just have to find one because I had never seen such a thing.


Yes. I don't use too many pedals, and one or two can be used at 12 & 18v's so it's ideal.
All outputs can feed 9 and 12 V, one outs 9V/18V and the last one feeds 9/12v DC or 12v AC.


+1, might be due it being made in Denmark, TGP tends to favor USA made gear.
There tends to be more US builders too, but it is something I have noticed too.

There is not enough head room to power a Timeline. Timeline requires min 300ma, the Chameleons' max is 300ma.

I use the 300mA from the ISO5 for powering the timeline without any issues. I'm gonna replace it with a chameleon because my pedalboard has grown a lot.

Right angle cord ordered for 6€ shipped. Cool !

Now my problem is to know the current draw from all my pedals, especially the Lovepedals, the site says nothing at all and they don't provide any technical booklet with their pedals...

I've had problems powering my Timeline with the Chameleon, once at home it kept powering on and off, than again first song first set live. I can't afford for this to happen, just got a Cioks, more headroom.
