So I am at a gig last Saturday and some drunken idiot knocks over a mic stand and blam! right on top of my rhythm guitar player's p-board. Takes out his Delay pedal knobs and cracked the LCD Screen. We always have some sort of back up (old, replaced gear), but the config (i/o & power) were all wrong. We would need to turn it upside down to work with his current audio plug setup and the power line (soldered) was about 3/4" too short. 3 Monkeys to the rescue. I keep 4 audio and 2 DC with 2 ft of cable in my guitar bag...for just this type of emergency. It took me all of 3 minutes to measure, cut (with scissors - couldn't find my knife), twist on and we are back up and running. Best friggin cables EVER, period.
This is the cleanest looking, most versatile, easy to make solution for any pedaboard build. Quick and easy to assemble, every single one worked the first time, and the most compact plugs I have seen.
I use these to keep my more complicated board clean. Being able to make exact lengths needed for board easily and with minimal tools makes these my favorite.
Easy assembly. Great sounding. My pedalboards have never sounded so good!
I bought a dozen get of various colors of diy cable. I had it in less than a week, and the quality is remarkably superior to the cable that came with an amazon company's cable kit... There looks to be about 10x the copper wire in the middle for contact with the plug. I look forward to doing business with 3 Monkeys in the future. Thanks, folks!
