Diago Unveils Sprinter Pedalboard

Large enough to hold four standard pedals and comes with a lightweight soft case.

Garforth, UK (June 24, 2015) -- The Diago Sprinter is a small ultra-portable pedal board with a tough, light-weight soft case. It is designed for when travelling light or when space is at a premium such as fly gigs, practising or low key events.

The board is large enough to hold up to four standard sized pedals or six micro pedals, plus a compact power supply. Like its bigger brother the Diago ‘Commuter', it is machined from HDF for low weight and high rigidity and has six large flat rubber pads on the bottom to give a low profile platform with great stability. The entire top surface is covered in looped pedal carpet material so that your pedals can be put exactly where you want them, and stay firmly attached.

The bag is made from tough nylon and padded all over with a resilient EPE interlayer, with a zip going down 3 edges to give easy access to your board and is big enough to accommodate the board and most pedals. It has an integrated carry handle and a removable, adjustable shoulder strap to make carrying comfortable and easy, and also comes with a 2 metre roll of velcro for your pedals, so there should be plenty to re-do your board a number of times or swap out your various pedals. There's also a lightweight flap pocket on the inside that can be used to hold strings, picks or other small accessories.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
