Charlotte, NC – March 2014… Neutrik USA, the leading supplier of robust and reliable professional connectivity solutions for audio, video, and data, is pleased to introduce the most advanced plug for the electric guitarist: the ultimatePLUG. Combining the characteristics of two of Neutrik’s most advanced guitar plugs, the ultimatePLUG takes the tone altering characteristics of the timbrePLUG and combines these capabilities with the muting provisions of the silentPLUG—providing unparalleled convenience for the performing guitarist.
The Neutrik ultimatePLUG is a 2 pole right angle ¼-inch professional phone plug with gold plated contacts to ensure superior signal transmission. Like Neutrik’s timbrePLUG, the ultimatePLUG provides the ability to change the timbre of one’s guitar sound from a neutral, clear tone to a warm sound in four steps by simply turning a knob on the plug. The characteristic sound of a guitar is influenced, to a certain extent, by the connected instrument cable due to the natural electrical properties of the cable. The rotary knob on the ultimatePLUG provides the ability to adjust this tone.
For any performing electric guitarist, changing instruments during the show requires due diligence so as to avoid the unpleasant squeals and pops that can occur when changing the instrument under load. Neutrik’s silentPLUG addresses this common challenge by automatically muting the instrument cable. Like the silentPLUG, Neutrik’s ultimatePLUG features an integrated silent switch based on REED-technology that guarantees a lifetime beyond 10,000 mating cycles. This plug features a rugged metal shell enhanced with a rubber cushion overlay for improved shock protection. The ultimatePLUG’s switching contacts are hermetically sealed and incorporate industry proven and reliable chuck type cable strain relief for the utmost reliability.
Peter Milbery, President of Neutrik USA, Inc., offered his thoughts on the company’s ultimatePLUG, “With Neutrik’s ultimatePLUG, the ability to adjust one’s tone and change instruments silently brings a new level of convenience for the performing guitarist. This advanced connector helps today’s performer get exactly the tone he or she wants while making the process of switching instruments during a performance an effortless and quiet process. I have no doubt the performing guitarist will appreciate the capabilities of cables that utilize this connector.”
