Samba Debuts Studio, Stage Pedalboards

Aesthetics and construction intended to help units fit studio, stage designs.

Benicia, CA (March 12, 2018)—Samba Pedalboards has introduced its debut lineup of three pedalboards, all sporting ergonomic details, aesthetic designs intended to align with various studio décor, and road-tested construction.

The pedalboards sport forward-sloping front panels with dovetail joinery and 3⁄4-inch solid wood construction; recessed-panel input/output connectivity with exclusive expansion slots for future growth; and a UL safety-compliant, one-piece AC power connection with included adapters and extensions. A 10-foot AC power connection cord is also included with every pedalboard.

Samba’s launch includes three models, all with identical styling and included features: the 13″ x 17″ Model SP-131, 13″ x 24″ Model SP-132 and 18″ x 24″ Model SP-182.

The pedalboards’ top surface is covered with a low-profile Velcro loop material for pedal mounting. Optional natural maple-finished wood tops are also offered. All tops feature an array of slots for cable routing, enabling wiring to be concealed underneath, along with space on the underside for an optional Voodoo Lab or other power supply.

Standard cabling includes one each of a custom-crafted input and output, constructed with Canare GS-6 guitar cable, a Switchcraft right angle 1⁄4-inch jack for connection to pedals and a Neutrik 1⁄4-inch input/output plug for instrument, amp or PA connections.

Expansion slots are provided for more sophisticated rigs and include up to four additional integrated input and/or outputs for future growth. These can also be used for multiple purposes such as stereo/two amp configurations and other applications, as well as for send and return effects loop connections.
