With an enormous range of pedals, pedal switchers and digital devices out there, pedal boards need an increasing range of unique cables to suit different applications. We have the biggest range of termination options to choose from. Simply choose the type of end you need and how long you need the cable to be. We take care of the rest.
Pancake – These are a low profile right angle jack that allow pedals to be placed close to each other and will generally suit most applications on your board.
Right Angle – For when a pedal has jacks close together, like the Boss DD-7.
Short-Body Straight Jack – The most common application for these is a true bypass looper where right angle jacks cannot be used. Since these jacks do not have strain relief, they are best suited for pedalboard and rack applications.
TRS – Often used to connect an external control pedal like our Advanced Control range, or to send tempo to a pedal from an external source.
TRS Y – Sometimes referred to as an insert cable. They have a TRS jack at one end which connects to two separate cables with TS connectors at the other end. These work perfectly with the RJM PBC switcher to connect pedals to it’s stereo loops, or with our audition boxes.
MIDI – Available with any combination of right angle or straight jacks. With the correct tool the RA jack can even be re-orientated.
To measure the length of the cables you need, grab a piece of string a couple feet long, put one end of the string on the pedal jack you want your patch cable to start at. While holding that end of the string in place, run the piece of string to the next pedal in your signal chain. Measure the length of string you just used for that connection. Record the length, along with the jacks you would like to use for that particular cable (pancake, right angle or short-body straight) and repeat for the next pedal in your chain.
When doing this, make sure to leave room for the string/cable to run around corners without being stretched too tight. Check out our Instagram account to get an idea of how to run corners, lay cable and select jacks. Always leave an extra couple of inches if you are cutting it close on length. The last thing you want is a cable that is slightly too short!
