Diago Launches Patchfactory Solderless Guitar Patch Cable System

Diago Launches Patchfactory Solderless Guitar Patch Cable System -

Diago, creator of no-nonsense pedalboards and pedal power solutions introduces the Patchfactory solderless guitar patch cable system.

Diago Patchfactory allows you to create your own custom length patch cables without needing any specialist tools or skills.  The system offers first class connection reliability, the smallest solderless plug heads and the most transparent signal transfer available.


High precision manufacturing of both the plugs and cable means that everything fits snugly together, and super fine threads and a tightening slot in the plug cap result in strong, reliable connections.

Smallest Plugs = Maximum Space

At only 11mm (7/16") in both profile and diameter, Patchfactory has the tiniest solderless plugs heads available, giving the maximum possible amount of pedalboard real estate.  Patchfactory cable is designed specifically for pedalboard use and the relatively small 4.2mm (0.165") diameter coupled with a durable PVC jacket allows cables to be moulded to exactly where you want it around your pedalboard.

Signal Flow

At 30pF per foot (100pF per metre), the super low-capacitance Patchfactory cable is at the sweet-spot for guitar.  It offers faithful reproduction of your guitar signal and prevents the treble roll-off and muddiness often found from poor quality cable.

Diago designer James Kitchen says "The concept may be familiar, but we've engineered Patchfactory from the ground up. Everything has been fine-tuned to make them simple to put together, whilst still being reliable, great sounding and all with an exceptionally low profile."

Patchfactory will be on show at the NAMM Show next week, at booth number 5868, Hall B and will be shipping immediately after.  The USA MSRP for a kit with 10 plugs / 10 foot of cable is $90.00.  Plugs are $7.50 each and the cable is $2.50 per foot.

From humble beginnings in a bedroom in 2005, Diago has already become the fastest growing pedalboard and pedal power solutions company in Europe.  We focus on no-nonsense, BS-free products for guitar players with a focus on quality, simplicity and results rather than tons of pointless features or gimmicks.
