The newly designed cables are available in 3", 6", 12", and 24" lengths.

Coachella Valley, CA (March 18, 2020) -- Ernie Ball, the world’s leading manufacturer of guitar strings, musical instruments, and accessories, is proud to announce the availability of an all-new line of flat ribbon patch cables. Built from the ground up, these cables are the result of improving upon extensive research of the limitations and problems with existing patch cables on the market.

Ernie Ball flat ribbon patch cables feature a high-quality design made with roadworthy construction and superior components that are built to last. The flat cable design and low-profile connectors allow for optimized pedalboard layout and cable routing. They offer improved frequency response with a clear tone with crisp highs, tight mids, and rich harmonics. Metal components are made of 99.95% oxygen-free copper to resist corrosion. Multiple shielding materials preserve the signal with low handling noise, and the durable PVC jacket exterior ensures long-lasting performance. Connectors are all flat-angle/flat-angle. These cables are available with black jacket with lengths of 3", 6", 12" and 24" and come with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

The flat ribbon patch cables are now available with street pricing beginning at $22.99.

While the Yamaha name is famous in circles beyond the guitar world, they’ve made first-class guitars since the 1960s. And while they don’t unleash new releases with the frequency of some larger guitar brands, every now and then they come down the mountain with a new axe that reminds us of their capacity to build great electric 6-strings. In 2015, Yamaha introduced the first generation Revstar. With a handsome aesthetic inspired by the company’s motorcycle racing heritage, the Revstar combined sweet playability and vintage style touchstones. This year, Yamaha gave the Revstar an overhaul—including body chambering, updated pickups, and new switching. What’s impressive is how these alterations enhance the already impressive playability and versatility of the original.
