You might think that one guitar cable is the same as any other, not so, the people at Solid Cables would argue strongly that this is not the case. After making extremely high copper cables that result in high signal integrity, they found that people were experiencing high levels of top end – basically the crummy cables they'd been using before were attenuating the top end drastically and they'd become used to that sound. In fact Paul Reed Smith is said to use a 50ft cable because he likes the way it darkens his sound. So the boffins at Solid Cables they figured they could actually control the sound by experimenting with the materials used to make the cable. And that's what they did. As well as making regular high quality and extremely tough guitar and bass cables - Dynamic Arc Ultra - designed to be "the toughest, best sounding cable in the world", they came up with the Dynamic Arc Beta cable: "For those with very hot single coils, this is your cable. It aligns the highs, and gives a warm tone to jazz boxes with p-90's or strats with single coils without harsh siblance that some single coil pickups can transfer. This cable is also preferred for dub or reggae type bass guitars that need a very stout low end but a woody top end. while the dynamic arc ultra is your choice for articulation and clarity, the dynamic arc beta is your secret weapon for warmth and smooth tone without the icepick snap or click that is usually present when using a pick. if your pick attack is giving you headaches and ear fatigue, this is your cable." There you go. They ain't cheap, but they are works of art.
