Have an FBV? Buy this!

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired an FBV 3 floorboard for use with my Firehawk 1500. It came with a perfectly respectable RJ-45 interconnect cable. It would be great for a computer. Of course, it has a lot of memory and coiled up like crazy all over the floor. What a mess! Besides looking pretty stupid, the coils present a tripping hazard. And in no way, shape, or form is a polyethylene-jacketed Cat5 cable designed to withstand the rigors of regular stage work. I found a better one, and you should buy it now.

 

Some deep Googling revealed a braided nylon jacketed RJ45 Cat 7 cable seemed like it might just be what the doctor ordered. Amazon Prime to the rescue, I had it in my hot hands in 2 days. It is vastly superior to the supplied cable and not too much coin. You are welcome.

Wow, great find!  Are you using one of these now?   Always thought the cheap CAT5 cable was the weakest part of the Spider amp/FBV system.  I'm not gigging with this amp any longer, but if I was, this would be a must-have.

Yes, I bought both lengths. They work splendidly.

Thanks for the link! After the show, is it easy to wrap up in a circle like mic and guitar cables?
