The latest offerings include a solderless pedalboard kit, updated 9V adapter, and a CinchFit Acoustic Jack Lock designed especially for Taylor guitars.

New York, NY (April 4, 2018) -- D’Addario Accessories is excited to launch another addition to their premium cable offerings – the DIY Solderless Pedalboard Audio Cable Kit with Mini Plugs.

D’Addario cable kits are the ultimate solution for custom wiring your pedalboard or rack gear when space is restricted. Featuring solderless plugs that connect to cables in seconds, creating custom lengths has never been easier – it’s as simple as cutting the cable to length, placing the cable end into the plug end, and securing the set screw to produce flawless, great-sounding cables.

The included plugs can be configured for straight or right angle connections, and use less space than standard audio plugs. The plugs also feature our patented Geo-Tip design for an enhanced connection in any instrument, pedal, or amp jack for custom cables that produce the most accurate and reliable reproduction of your sound.

Including 10 plugs, 10’ of cable, mini cable cutter, and screwdriver, D’Addario’s DIY Solderless Pedalboard Audio Cable Kit with Mini Plugs is available April 1 - $133.80 MSRP / $69.99 MAP.

D’Addario Accessories has updated its popular 9V Adapter in order to meet the new Energy Efficiency Standards for external power supplies.

The updated adapter has been upgraded to output 500mA (previously 300mA) of 9VDC power and can now be used with 100V-240V AC input voltage.

This improved adapter has a barrel size of 2.1mm, with a cord length of 72 inches, and can be used with all common effects pedals with tip “-“ inputs.

The D’Addario 9V Adapter is now available in F and G plug types starting April 1 at $14.05 MSRP.

D’Addario Accessories is excited to add a CinchFit Acoustic Jack Lock that is made specifically for Taylor guitars (Expression System).

Endpin jacks are notorious for creating hassles when applying and removing standard guitar straps, and usually require modification to the strap which results in a less-than-desirable fit. With CinchFit, players now have a fast and easy solution for attaching their strap to acoustic guitars with endpin output jacks.

The Acoustic Cinch Fit loops through the end of any instrument strap, and its magnetic security clasp makes sure it stays in place. The cinch clamping action also allows easy application and removal, utilizing the weight of the instrument to remain locked onto the endpin so the guitar is always held securely. And with no strap modification required, now you can easily attach any strap to acoustic endpin jacks.

The CinchFit Acoustic Jack Lock for Taylor will be available April 1 and retails for $19.95.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
