Aiming to create a pedalboard that is lightweight, rigid and rugged, allowing for the use of a multitude of pedals as well as power supply mounting solutions unique to this ingenious aluminium construction, W-Music distribution has introduced three new RockBoard models. Based on only one folded cold-rolled aluminium sheet for the board frame, this design needs no welded seams, W-Music says, which makes the board surface completely plain and gives users more pedalboard space for their money.
‘U-shaped vertical support braces offer additional stability without adding too much weight,’ the maker says. ‘The new RockBoard pedalboards will neither bend nor wiggle. The innovative slot-based design works equally well with standard mounting solutions as with the new RockBoard Quick Mount pedal mounting plates (sold separately). The slots also let you easily hide cables underneath the surface for a need and tidy setup. Additionally, any power supply can either be mounted underneath the board surface, or using the optional RockBoard. The Tray universal power supply mounting solution’.
All RockBoard 2018 Series models (except the Duo 2.1) are compatible with the RockBoard Module patch bays and come in seven sizes ranging from 46 cm (18 1/8”) to 102 cm (40 3/16”) in width. Rockboards come with either gig bags or optional flight cases.
Prices range from £143.86 RRP inc VAT for the CINQUE 5.2 B incl. gig bag up to £236.54 for the CINQUE 5.4 B incl. gig bag.
