Well I just have a mini rant / question... How do you make those lava tightrope work grrr / are all solderless apart from the planet waves like that?? I had the planet waves since 2009ish, never had an issue with them, never failed, reused them so many times. Bought the tightrope and watched the video 3 times, thought I did a pretty decent job but after making it last night and testing through the board tonight, it would only intermittently pass full signal... and I don't mean like jiggle it and it completely cuts out, it was more like a dying battery going from spurts of full signal to 3/4 then back to full! As annoying as the big heads on the planet waves are they are sooo easy and so reliable - going to stick then despite losing pedalboard space... ah wells! Anyone else had any luck with tightropes?
