    I am finally (for now) building my pedalboard. But now I have to attach all the pedals. I need to make my own cables do to the crazy routing I need to do. I'm a joke with a solder gun, any suggestion on the solder less cables? I have to do some straight angle and some 90° angles. Any help would be great.

    I'm curious about the crazy routing you're talking about.
    There's quite a variety of different lengths of patch cables available, not to mention the 'pedal cranks' which are a solid connector between pedals.

    The planet waves stuff is great just make sure you cut the cable straight. I think they have a set with both string and right angle ends george l make a soldlesskit as does x2

    The routing isn't "crazy" i guess. Just need different lengths and angles to make them work. I've seen some of the DIY kits out there and was wondering if they are any good.

    The George L's kits are insanely easy to put together.
