RockBoard Expands Line with MOD 5 Module

It offers guitarists and bassists six selectable IR-based mono/stereo speaker simulations, with support for user IRs, an active DI, a headphone port, and a micro-USB port.

Markneukirchen, Germany (April 4, 2019) -- The RockBoard® MOD 5 was one of the highlights at the Framus & Warwick booth at this year’s Winter NAMM Show, where the RockBoard® novelties won the coveted “Best in Show Award”.

The RockBoard® MOD 5 extends the range of modules for the entire RockBoard® program (except RockBoard® DUO 2.0 and DUO 2.1) and offers guitarists and bassists 6 selectable IR-based mono/stereo speaker simulations, with support for user IRs (max. 1024 pts.), an active DI, a headphone port, as well as a micro-USB port (IR load, PC/MAC editor, firmware updates). 6 IRs for electric guitar and electric bass are included.

In addition, like all RockBoard® modules, MOD 5 offers a simple solution for organizing all connections to and from an effect setup. Whether you are using a RockBoard® or any other brand pedalboard – the MOD 5 will open completely new possibilities. The speaker cab simulation & DI let’s you go direct, providing YOUR sound, whatever backline is being provided at the venue you’re playing. You want to use your favorite cab? No problem, load an impulse response of its sound into the MOD 5 and you have it with you, wherever you go. The patchbay part is designed to route connections from underneath your pedalboard to its front, in order to give you a central access point to your setup and tidy up your connections. For silent and on the road practicing, the MOD 5 also provides a headphone amplifier with adjustable output volume.

Comes incl. mounting screws, counter nuts and TX wrench. Power is supplied via an optional 9V DC power supply unit.

Available from May.

A newly designed koa wonder that packs a punch.

Incredibly easy to play. Well-balanced tone.

Not as visually stunning as other koa models.


Taylor 724ce

Hawaiian koa has been a favorite of boutique acoustic builders for ages. It has a cool tone personality, somewhere between rosewood and mahogany. It can be used for both back and sides and for top wood, and it’s beautiful. It’s also pretty expensive. The good news is that Taylor’s new 724ce is built with a breed of Koa that actually helps players save a few bucks.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
