Gruv Gear has unveiled the LYNK Pedalboard – a new approach to pedalboard construction, both in terms of the actual construction of the board and how users go about putting together a rig with it.
The modular system lets you link together (as the name suggests) different LYNKs – each is a lightweight aluminium panel, coming in at 12 by 17 inches. The board is offered in single, double and triple panel configurations. The connecting pieces, made of ABS plastic, have threaded feet to allow the pedalboard’s angle to be fully adjusted. There’s also a wireless battery power option, which can keep pedals running from a few hours to a few days while reducing on-stage cable clutter.
The main benefit is probably most apparent to guitarists with bad cases of GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome.) In a practice space or at home you can establish a full, triple-LYNK pedalboard loaded with every obscure fuzz pedal and bucket brigade delay from the 90s you own plugged in and ready to use. Then you can detach one of the panels filled with the ‘essentials,’ for easier transport to gigs.
Gruv Gear has also launched the Pedalboard Kapsule Case, which is made with the same rugged construction and materials as the Kapsule for guitars and basses. The case features built-in TSA locks and the Global Recovery Tag system recognized by nearly 3000 airports worldwide for ultimate peace of mind when travelling.
