A clean, reliable connection to one’s signal processing and amplification chain is of paramount concern for any guitarist or bassist. Hosa Technology is now shipping a significant upgrade of the company’s popular Elite Series guitar cables, available with Neutrik X-Series straight and right-angle plugs plus a new nylon webbing over the cable’s PVC jacket. The Neutrik X-Series connectors employ precision machined, one-piece contacts designed to provide both signal integrity and structural rigidity. The connectors feature gold-plated contacts for corrosion resistance and superior signal transfer and utilize a zinc die-cast housing for rock-solid reliability. With a polyurethane gland to prevent cable kinking for longer cable life and chuck-type strain relief for maximum cable retention combined with a sleek, ergonomic design for easy handling, these connectors deliver the ideal blend of performance and long-term reliability.
These cables use 20 AWG Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors that reduce resistance in order to facilitate maximum signal transfer. Polyethylene dielectrics reduce capacitance while conductive PVC reduces handling noise. Further, a 95% OFC braided shield is employed for noise-free signal transmission.
Hosa Technology’s Elite Series cables range in price from an MSRP of $44.10 (for a 5-foot length straight to same) through $85.65 (for a 25-foot straight to right angle model). These cables are also available in 6-inch, 1-foot, and 1.5-foot patch cord lengths, with MSRP pricing ranging from $38.85 – $40.95. The Elite Series is in stock and available now.
