SNAMM05: New Pedalboard Cable Kit From Planet Waves
Make Your Own Solderless Cables 06/08/05
Pedal Boards can become an aggravating, confusing, nightmare of long, tangled cables. Customization of cables to specific lengths can be a tedious, messy job involving hot soldering irons. All of that could become a thing of the past thanks to the Cable Station Pedal Board Cable Kit from Planet Waves, which eliminates all of those problems in one package.
The new Pedal Board Kit is a further extension of Planet Waves popular Cable Station solderless cable-making system. It includes 10 feet of instrument cable (marked at one-foot intervals), 10 right-angle Planet Waves plugs, and a mini cable cutter. The cable is double-insulated and has a braided copper shield for 100% shielding coverage, and the plugs are plated in 24-carat gold for improved signal flow. Planet Wavesâ€™ patented compression springs ensure a positive connection.
The Cable Station Pedal Board Kit works just as easily as the rest of the Cable Station line. Users simply cut the cable to their desired length with the mini cable cutter, twist the plug on, and tighten the screw to finish their custom cable. Thatâ€™s it. No soldering, no complicated procedures. Itâ€™s just cut, twist, and screw, and in less than a minute, a custom cable of unbeatable quality is ready to go.
â€œWeâ€™ve basically created a tone-upgrade kit in one box,â€� says Planet Waves Brand Manager Mike Bradley. â€œThe speed at which a guitarist can rewire a pedal board is a huge benefit, and the solderless design of the right-angle plugs enables any guitarist to create an efficiently wired, clean-sounding, professional pedal rig. The improvement in tone can be, frankly, startling.â€�
The Planet Waves Pedal Board Tuner Kit retails for $99.99 USD
