Planet Waves DIY Solderless Cable Kit
Kit Contents:
- 10 records jack neutrik gold
- 3m cable (from memory)
- 1 mini cutters
So 5 patch cables (12 € / piece)

Cables patches that can be cut to the desired length to perfect his pedalboard.
The implementation is a breeze: the desired length is chosen, cut with the side cutter provided and is driven into the male connector jacks. Then you shake the single fastener with a small screwdriver and it's done.
Visually it's pretty and exudes quality.
Warning: This solderless kit is ONLY create patches cables, not instruments jacks 2m! Technically it is possible but it will not be all shot. It is designed for connecting a pedal attached to initially pedalboard!
In terms of sound quality is impeccable, no loss in the high frequencies, midrange and bass; unlike the yellow cables and others I have had in troubleshooting before.
To sum up, this kit is not cheap, but helps to make the desired patch cables for his pedalboard custom Personal length. Given the time seems right, I bought 3 kits over 2 years and no problems reported.
A good alternative for those who can not weld, for those who do not want to complicate things. I redid this choice to even 2x growing my pedalboard, but if I had to do a full pedalboard, I think I would do my patches single cable with a soldering iron. It is certainly pleased tedious, but the bill is divided by 2 to see 3!
Excellent product.

Planet Waves DIY Solderless Cable Kit
I use these patches for nearly 4 years now.
I had yellow cables (low-end), the Vovox (high end), and not surprisingly the Planet Waves is located between the two with an excellent sound quality / strength / price.
The overall sound is balanced, and I've never had to complain of crunches.
However, be careful taken away from the 230V power cable: Cable Planet Waves (like any other) easily transplanted 50Hz and can induce a small buzzing unpleasant.
The connectors are a bit big though especially compared to switchcraft (which is a model of its kind) and the pedals too tight against it may easily scratch their paint because the connections are metallic coating (happened to me), but we console with the ability to put that straight or angled connectors as needed allow many adaptations (he is still a long cable so every time I buy straight connectors to the unit over what I allows more patches).
For guitarists who make and remake their pedalboard is incredible saves time because it is very easy to change the lengths of the patches.
Once we understand how it works (moisten the top coating of the cable so that it slides easily, well then push the cable by turning slightly to help to make the connection and tighten the screw anti- tearing) it is impossible to miss a connection.
It seems that Petrucci uses his to wire rack (I did not check myself), but no matter: I bought 4 kits and I am very satisfied!
I remake this choice with your eyes closed.

Planet Waves DIY Solderless Cable Kit
* For how long have you been using it?
About 1 week.

* What thing do you like most/least about it?
Ease of Use
Product quality and audio quality
The cutter not super mega handy if you have big paws but nothing discriminatory nor
The fact that the product can not be declined in several ranges with prices declining ... For example, I bought it only to make patches for my PB and I find myself with 1.50m of cable do I use (for now) nothing. Too bad there is not a real pack Pedalboard ", with fewer bases and more cable jacks.

* Did you try many other models before getting this one?
No, no, level kit cables / patch-it-yourself and seamless, there are at Lava Cable, George L's, and Core. This one seemed good prices and feedback, plus it comes with 10 phone jacks, while the George L's are sold with only 8 bases.

* What is your opinion about the value for the price?
Good to very good. We will see the longevity of patches and manufactured. For those who would doubt the kit is more financially attractive than buying (5 Patch € between 10 € and 15 meter cable, short, one gains a big ten euros).

* Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
In principle yes, without hesitation.

I put 9 / 10, there is little to say about the product itself. It's just a shame that manufacturers like Planet Waves does not develop more products in this range.
