RockBoard Debuts New Lineup of Pedalboard Accessories

As announced earlier this year at Winter NAMM, RockBoard has debuted a new lineup of pedalboard accessories. This includes updated versions of the company's MOD patchbays, ABS cases, an LED pedalboard light, as well as the StomPete and BigToe footswitch toppers.

The RockBoard modules — MOD 1 (all-in-One TRS & XLR patchbay), MOD 2 (all-in-one TRS, MIDI and USB patchbay) and MOD 3 (all-in-one TRS & XLR Patchbay for vocalists and acoustic players) — have been updated and refined and offer the following additional features in version two. Check out a video overview above. 

• MOD 2 and MOD 3 V2 feature an additional hollow plug thru connector, which has always been available with MOD 1
• Smaller housing
• Detachable front panel in black
• Separately available MOD RACK allows mounting also on third party boards

Available starting late July.

RockBoard ABS Cases for Pedalboards
All RockBoards (except DUO 2.0) are now available with an ABS case. All RockBoard ABS cases are also available separately. These pedalboard cases are lighter than flight cases, but still robust enough for the stresses and strains of everyday touring. The company's professional ABS pedalboard cases are available for all RockBoard pedalboards (except DUO 2.0). They feature a lightweight ABS shell with a unique honeycomb structure for added reinforcement. Their lids are removable and fit like a hood over the pedalboard, so the board can be easily and quickly removed from the case. The professional ABS pedalboard cases also feature TSA 2 locks and wheels on larger versions. Available now.

RockBoard LED Light
In times of constantly growing effect rigs, the visibility of the pedals on stage becomes more and more important. With the RockBoard LED Light, you'll never be in the dark again! This LED light is specially designed for pedalboards. Compatible with all RockBoard 2019 series pedalboards, the simple 3-hole mounting clamp can easily be attached to virtually any pedalboard to illuminate pedal setup on dark stages. With four brightness levels and six color settings (white / red / green / blue / yellow / pink), it puts your pedals in the spotlight or provides discreet ambient lighting — and everything in between. Power is supplied via an optional 9V DC power supply.
