RockBoard Introduces Flat Patch Gold Cables

Thanks to the slim design, you can now fit more pedals on your board.

Nashville, TN (September 21, 2017) -- In 2016 we introduced the RockBoard Flat Patch Cables for connecting effect pedals on pedalboards. Now they are available with gold plated connectors. RockBoard Flat Patch Gold Cables are unique and very useful, as connectors and cables are flat, super flexible and therefore space saving and optimal for all pedalboards. RockBoard Flat Patch Gold Cables have a very low conductor resistance and are well shielded to prevent signal loss. Thanks to their slim and elegant design (only 7.5 mm high including the flat connector housing) they save a lot of pedal board real estate. For example: you can now install six instead of 5 effect pedals in the popular MXR format on your pedal board. The flat cable with flexible copper conductors protects against torsion and thus against damage and broken cables. The RockBoard Flat Patch Gold Cables also meet very high demands, for cables. The connectors are made to high quality standards, designed for a long and trouble free life "on the road". We offer these black cables with gold plated connectors in 10 different lengths:

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.
