WNAMM12: Planet Waves Introduces American Stage Cables
New cable features exclusive geo-tip design for a seamless secure connection 24-Jan-12
Planet Waves has added custom-designed American Stage cables to its line of cabling.
Frank Aresti, Planet Waves Cables Product Manager, told Amped, "We wanted to develop an instrument cable that sounds great, is flexible, and built like a tank. That's precisely what we've made with American Stage."
Here's the details in Planet Waves' own words...
Designed and manufactured in the U.S., this special cable features Planet Waves' exclusive In=Out technology for optimum signal transparency, in-line solder joints for superior conductivity and strength, and the exclusively patented Geo-Tip design for improved fit in all jacks.
Planet Waves American Stage instrument cables are built from the ground up to ensure perfect tone every time. The custom designed, made in the U.S.A. wire reproduces full lows and rich highs, accurately transferring true tone with clarity and noise free operation. The 22AWG Oxygen Free copper center provides enhanced signal transfer, while the 100% shield cover with 95% tinned copper braid and conductive PVC under jacket provides excellent electromagnetic interference rejection and no handling noise.
The in-line solder process utilizes modern micro flame technology and specially formulated RoHS compliant solder to create a permanent bond between wire and connector, creating unsurpassed strain relief and durability. The connectors are designed to exacting specifications and built by Neutrik in their state-of-the-art facility in Lichtenstein, using the highest quality components available. The flexible cable construction provides reduced tangling, effortless handling and uncoils easily. Finally, the innovative patented Geo-Tip provides a seamless and secure connection in any instrument, pedal or amp jack. Pricing and Availability:
Available in 10' – 30' lengths, Planet Waves American Stage Instrument Cables will retail from $39.99 to $69.99 and will begin shipping in Q1 2012.
