THE SOLUTION

Discipline: Product

THE SOLUTION is the world’s first splash proof pedalboard for guitarists. Its revolutionary click-in system seamlessly integrates up to eight effect pedals, eliminating the need for patch cables between pedals or external power management. Just like the 14 corresponding NEXI effect pedals were created to complement each other to allow for every guitarist’s unique signature sound, THE SOLUTION is more than the sum of its parts. With a truly holistic approach to design and technology, all details were carefully crafted in perfect balance with each other, creating a minimalist and iconic design statement fit for any center stage.
