EBS Introduces Line of Patch and Insert Cables

The insert cable allows you to place other pedals inside an effects loop.

Sweden (March 24, 2014) -- EBS of Sweden announces the Flat Patch cables for connecting pedals on pedal boards and the Y-Type insert cables. These cables are part of EBS line of pedal accessories, including power supplies, split cables, connectors as well as the newly introduced EBS Carry-On ‘hand luggage approved’ pedal board and bag. See, Strings & Accessories on the EBS website for info.

PCF-10, 18, 28 and 58 patch cables
EBS has released new innovative patch cables to use on pedal boards. The cables are extremely low resistant and well shielded, to prevent signal loss. The flat design and flat, compact connector housings offer the possibility to save plenty of space on your pedal board, still with full flexibility to easily remove and replace pedals when needed. The EBS patch cables are available in four different lengths, 10 cm (3.9 inch), 18 cm (7.1 inch), 28 cm (11 inch) and 58 cm (22.8 inch). Price $3 to $5.50 approx.

ICY-30, insert cable
Based on a similar design, EBS now present a Y-type insert cable to use with the effect loops on the EBS Billy Sheehan Signature Drive (or similar pedals). The cable has a Stereo connector at one end, split into two male mono connectors representing the ring and the tip of the stereo connector used as send and return respectively to create a loop. The cables are 30 cm (11.8 inch) each, to offer full flexibility. Price approx $13.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
