RockBoard Duo 2.2, Tres 3.0, Tres 3.2 and Quad 4.3
Four new pedalboard models will make their way into RockBoard’s Pedalboard Series: the Duo 2.2, Tres 3.0, Tres 3.2 and Quad 4.3 (pictured above). The pedalboards will come with either a gig bag ABS case or flight case.
RockBoard PedalSafe, QuickMount and CableFix
The new PedalSafe system is designed to keep pedal enclosures clean and dry with its transparent rubber covers and removable caps. The PedalSafe covers can either be affixed to mounting plates which can be attached via screws or Velcro, or to RockBoard’s QuickMount system. The new CableFix can also be used to keep cables neatly in place.
RockBoard Mod 4, Mod 7, Power Mod 75 and Power Mod 150
The Mod 4 is an all-in-one wireless guitar system and patchbay for pedalboards with a range of approximately 30m along with a 2.4 Ghz ISM band. The Mod 7 acts as a professional audio interface patchbay with AD/DA converter. Both the Power Mod 75 and 150 are pedalboard-based Class D power amplifiers that feature two foot-switchable channels, a three-band active EQ, two selectable tone stacks and a switchable speaker cabinet emulation.
RockBoard ISO Power Block V 16
RockBoard’s ISO Power Block V 16 is an upgraded version of the V 10 model, but with more connections and features. The V 16 now comes with 16 isolated and stabilised current outputs and exchangeable power plugs.
RockBoard ALS-5 and ALS-8
The ALS-5 and ALS-8 are RockBoard’s newest pedalboard loopers/switchers that come with opto-coupler-based relay switches, DIP switches to activate the effects loops, two switchable RockBoard Natural Sound Buffers and foot-switchable tuner outputs.
RockBoard StageTuner ST-01 and ST-02
RockBoard is debuting two new tuner devices: one is a pedal-size chromatic tuner (ST-01) while the other is a rack-mountable version (ST-02). Both tuners feature an adjustable reference frequency rating from 432 to 445 Hz and have a tuning accuracy of +/- one cent.
RockBoard Slider Plug
The Slider Plug’s unique design accommodates offset input/output jacks to ensure minimal distance between two pedals. The plug-to-plug offset ranges from 0 to 20mm to accommodate most pedal jack differences. The Slider Plug is also available in two colours: chrome or gold.
RockBoard Premium Flat XLR Cables
RockBoard’s Premium Flat Cables now come in XLR formats and are available in a variety of lengths: 30 cm, 60 cm, 90 cm, 300 cm, 600 cm and 900 cm.
The RockBoard products for 2020 will be available from April. For more information, click here.
