Pasadena, CA (August 11, 2009)–TV/film composer Tim Jones has retrofitted his production rig with Solid Cables instrument cables.
Jones, who scores for NBC’s TV show Chuck, happened across the cables during a recent visit to California ‘s Pasadena Guitars. Impressed with the tone and construction of the cables, Jones contacted the manufacturer for assistance in retrofitting his rig.
“Solid Cables are honestly the most astonishingly detailed and accurate cables I’ve ever used. I get at least an extra 20 to 30 percent more from my guitars when recording using the cables. Doing A-B tests with other’cables at Pasadena Guitar just left me shaking my head. So many past recordings with lousy cables…not anymore!” says Jones.
All metal contact surfaces of a Solid Cable Dynamic Arc Ultra are reportedly atmospherically cleaned to prevent oxidation and contamination during assembly and then lubricated for protection, performance and longevity. All soldering is done by hand using only premium grade silver alloy in an effort to provide the most transparent signal possible. During final assembly, all mechanical components are chemically welded together and the cable is shielded by a 6,000 psi tear-resistant armor.
After achieving his BA with a major in film scoring at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Jones went on to work under other composers. Now, Jones’ resume of work includes scores for The Foresaken, The Death and Life of Bobby Z, The Underground, The Brainiancs.com, King Kong: Making the Beast and many more.
