Essential connectivity for your studio!

Patchbays often go unappreciated until their contacts get rusty or you need just a few more connections. The dbx PB-48 48-point Patchbay takes care of both problems with the greatest of ease. This balanced DBX 1/4" TRS patchbay has 48 easy-to-reach jacks in the front and rear-96 points in all. Each of its 24-card assemblies has 4 jacks and thumbscrews so switching from normalled to non-normalled positions is easy. Pure nickel silver self-cleaning contacts won't get funky and waste your connections. The patchbay uses one rackspace. You'll appreciate its dependability and the price!

  • Not a great design

    As reviewed by GREG SANGUINETTI on 2/21/2012

    Not very well designed. The cards are held on only by one nylon jack nut that fits into a slot, pointing down. Plus the only shielding is on top. Otherwise the whole frame is open. Ok if you want to stick with half-normal configuration. Full-normal is not an option. De-normaled, or straight through can be done but it is a real pain. The cards all have to be swapped and removing the jack nuts is tough because they are too close together for even a thin walled socket and too close for an open end wrench. You have to use pliers. Remember they are nylon and the only thing holding the cards in. I took one look at all that and returned both units. I replaced them with the Behringer bays, which surprisingly were much better designed and fully shielded.

  • Great product, great solution

    As reviewed by Rishi on 4/22/2011

    I bought the dbx PB-48 patchbay a little while back after learning about patchbays in general. I upgraded to a high quality two channel AD/DA converter and was worried about plugging and unplugging my instruments in the converter. I tried using a cheap mixer but it introduced noise in the signal. A high quality, multi-channel mixer can run pretty expensive and I found out about this, dbx's version specifically. This patchbay has allowed me to be very flexible and change the recording chain (passively) with ease, and often as I never record more than one instrument at a time. Its got great solid connections. This has made my life very easy and will make the connections on my AD/DA converter last.
