      Lava Mini ELC Cable Pedalboard Kit with Right Angle Plug (502224)
Availability:  


A pedalboard kit that allows you to space your pedals within 1 inch or less of each other due to Lava's revolutionary right-angle plug.

The Lava Solder-Free Pedalboard Kit includes 10 feet of Mini ELC Cable, 10 Lava plugs, and a stripping tool.

Lava Cable DIY solder-free plugs—developed with G&H Industries—is specifically designed with tight tolerances to match the Lava Mini ELC cable. The Lava Plug is the first solder-free DIY plug on the market not to use a set screw to make the ground connection. Instead, Lava Cable plugs employ a sleeve that makes a 360° ground and outer jacket contact.

The right angle plug was introduced at Summer NAMM 2009 and it may be the smallest DIY solder-free right angle plug on the market—with a body width of .435", for spacing between pedals of less than 1"—or less than 1/2" when staggered.

  • Great Cable Set

    As reviewed by John Koelling on 1/12/2013

    This is a great cable set and will produce a pseudo professional (non-soldered) wiring of your pedal board. The end product looks great and produces great sound as well. I wired boards my first board with the Planet Waves kit and expanded my pedal collection so that I had to buy a second board. This second board was wired with the Lava kit If you are struggling to decide which one to get here is my comparison. The Planet Waves kit cables are very easy to put together. After my first attempt to wire my board with the Planet Waves kit, I had only one patch cord that I had messed up. I did some trouble shooting to find out which cord was the culprit, took it apart, put it back together and I was in business. The Lava Cables kit is trickier to put together but if you watch some demo videos on YouTube and take some small sections of cable and practice a couple of times, you'll be in business. The trick is to strip the insulation in exactly the right distance from the end of the wire (too long is more problematic than a little too short) and not cut too deep when you strip it. All this is a reason to practice a little first. If you take the time to practice a little, in the end the Lava kit is much more professional looking. In addition, the cable itself is much thinner and easier to manipulate in small spaces. The design of the Lava right angle plugs is also much more versatile than the Planet Waves design and allows for connections in all kinds of weird angles. The only real flaw in both kits was that the supplied wire cutter in the Planet Waves kit and the combo wire cutter/stripper in the Lava kit both wore out too quickly. Just about the time you're putting together the last 1-2 patch cords, they start to get pretty dull and it's much harder to make clean cuts/strips of the cable. Either one will work, but now that I know exactly how to use the Lava kit, I'm going to rewire my first board with the Lava kit. I like the way it looks and sounds much better.

  • Amazing!

    As reviewed by b-rizzle V-dizzle on 4/29/2011

    These cables are fantastic, they sound brilliant and are really easy to put together. I never thought my set up could sound so good but these cleaned it up and i am truly amazed with my tone. They are studio, and gig worthy. I will never use a different cable. Lava for life!!

  • Simple enough

    As reviewed by Chris on 5/31/2010

    As advertised it is certainly easy enough to make your own cable lengths to perfectly fit your pedalboard. Only had one bad connection but it was easy to unconnect and redo. I especially like that you can orient the right angle to suit your design. As for noise, I haven't noticed that this cable is any quieter than the cheap ones I had been using. However , the cost prevents me from rating this any higher than 3 stars--there are just too many other options out there that are similar and perhaps cheaper.
