    Lava Tightrope has given me a very clean pedalboard with an easy to make design with a failure rate of zero. Love them.

    Where do you think Lava got the idea from?

    I think alot of times when folks say Tightrope or Lava was a pain they are actually referring to our older kit. The Tightrope has had very few issues other than user error. A few thousand board pics on our social media of them in use.

    Glad they worked out well for you.

    I had no problems putting the Tightrope cables together, but they loosened up after I moved a few pedals around, even faster than the mini-elc cables. The Tightrope kit was from last year.

    Evidence SIS worked out great for me. These things made me feel lke I was a pro rig designer with my first big board design. They allow your board to be very neat, tight and efficient. They are easy to make too. And oh yeah, they sound good. It's a pleasure to have patch cables that are the exact length they need to be. These things are very low profile. And one cannot help being impressed by the new technology. They are expensive but the cable and plugs are reusable. So you may never have to replace these or buy new ones. And if you need different sized cables, just modify the ones you already have, whcih is easy. That is where they save you money, in the long term.

    Where are folks buying their evidence audio SIS jacks from? All I see on Reberb is a bunch of ripoffs.
