Guitar Cable: Hosa Tech Elite Series
Hosa Technology’s new Elite series guitar cable is available with both straight and right-angle plugs.
Hosa Technology’s new Elite series guitar cable is available with both straight and right-angle plugs. The cable uses a stranded 20 AWG Hi-Purity oxygen-free copper (OFC) conductor to reduce resistance and improve signal flow. According to the company, stranding the copper helps reduce capacitance and increase bandwidth, allowing the guitar’s sound to retain more tonal character during transmission through the cable. The company says foamed polyethylene (FPE) dielectric also contributes to the cable’s high performance because FPE fills the material with air, thereby improving its dielectric properties without adding weight. Price: $37 (5-foot length); $62 (25-foot length). Hosa Technology. 714-522-8878. www.hosatech.com.
