Pasadena, CA (November 11, 2008)–Solid Cables, a manufacturer of high-end instrument cables, will debut the Dynamic Arc Beta cable in January at NAMM.
Handbuilt in the USA, the cable sports helical wound spiral shielding, polymer suspended carbon insulator, an all-metal black die-cast shell, and 6000 psi tear-resistant protective outer armor. All contact surfaces are atmospheric oxidation/contaminant cleaned and lubricated with audiophile grade metal preservative at the factory and are hand-soldered using premium grade silver alloy solder; additionally all mechanical components chemically welded together.
According to the company, the cable works best when teamed up with instruments utilizing single coil pick ups, but suggests it can also be used for playing dub- or reggae-type bass guitars that need a very stout low end but a woody top end. In such cases, the cable reportedly provides a warmth and smooth tone without the ice pick snap or click that is usually present when using a pick.
