Disaster Area Designs PBA-4 Dual Junction Box Insert Version
The PBA-4 Stereo Junction Box is a passive jack module for your pedalboard. Consisting of four high-quality isolated jacks, the PBA-4 can serve in a variety of signal routing applications. The PBA-4 is small enough to mount underneath the angle of most Pedaltrain boards (including PT-Jr, PT-1 / 2 / 3, PT-Pro, PT Novo series, and PT Classic series) to allow for a convenient input or output point. Connect two pedalboard patch cables between your first and last pedals and the PBA-4, and then you can plug in your instrument cables directly to your board saving valuable setup time. Use a single PBA-4 as both input and ouput points for your board, or use the PBA-4 as a stereo output junction. Both tip and ring connectors are wired through on the PBA-4, so it can also serve as a connection for expression pedals or stereo patch cables.
INSERT VERSION: The insert version wires the black jacks together as input and output, and the red jacks as send and return. Removing the plug from the return jack connects the input jack directly to the output. The insert version is ideal as patch points for connecting your amp’s effects loop, or as an “audition point” for connecting an effects pedal that is not part of your normal rig. When the cables are disconnected from the red jacks, your signal re-routes back to your normal configuration. A further use for the insert version is for wireless users – connect your wireless to the input, and your first pedal to the output. In the event of a wireless malfunction you can quickly and easily plug a cable into the insert return for wired use.
