Since pedals come in different shapes and sizes, you will sometimes need patch cables of different lengths.

This is where the D'Addario DIY Solderless Pedalboard Patch Cable Kit comes in, as it allows you to custom cut a 10' foot cable to the exact sizes that you want. And as the name implies, you can easily attach the cables to the right angle plugs without the need for soldering tools or experience.

It even comes with a mini-cable cutter and screwdriver so you have everything you need to work on your custom patch cables right out of the box.

In addition to all that, the 10 plugs that are included in this kit are 24K gold-plated for longevity.

Features:

  • Pack: 10' Cable, 10 Right Angle Plugs, Mini Cable Cutter, Screwdriver
  • Plug: 24K Gold-Plated
  • Jacket: Double Insulated
  • Shield: Braided Copper
  • Length: 10'

Pros

Users commend this kit for its beginner friendly solderless design, reporting that it is very easy to setup. Just make sure that you plan and measure pedal/cable placements properly, and you should be fine. A lot of reviewers also appreciated its solid build and the gold plated plugs which have not failed them.

Cons

Some users cautioned that you have to push the cable all the way in before tightening the screw, so it would be best to cut the cable a bit longer than what you need. A few even mentioned adding up to 1.5" inches of length per cut just in case you need to move pedals around.

Overall

We were recommending this kit until we reviewed the category in July 2018 and as a result we began recommending this higher rated alternative.
