(Coachella Valley, CA – March 2, 2020) – Ernie Ball, the world’s leading manufacturer of guitar strings, musical instruments and accessories, is proud to announce the availability of an all-new line of flat ribbon patch cables. Built from the ground up, these cables are the result of improving upon extensive research of the limitations and problems with existing patch cables on the market.
Ernie Ball flat ribbon patch cables feature a high-quality design made with roadworthy construction and superior components that are built to last. The flat cable design and low-profile connectors allow for optimized pedalboard layout and cable routing. They offer improved frequency response with a clear tone with crisp highs, tight mids, and rich harmonics. Metal components are made of 99.95% oxygen-free copper to resist corrosion. Multiple shielding materials preserve the signal with low handling noise, and the durable PVC jacket exterior ensures long-lasting performance. Connectors are all flat-angle/flat-angle. These cables are available with black jacket with lengths of 3", 6", 12" and 24" and come with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
The flat ribbon patch cables are now available with street pricing beginning at $22.99.
