Anaheim, CA (Jan 18, 2012) – Planet Waves is adding custom-designed American Stage cables to its line of cabling. Designed and manufactured in the U.S., this special cable features Planet Waves’ exclusive In=Out technology for optimum signal transparency, in-line solder joints for superior conductivity and strength, and the exclusively patented Geo-Tip design for improved fit in all jacks.

Planet Waves American Stage instrument cables are built from the ground up. The custom designed, made in the U.S.A. wire reproduces full lows and rich highs, accurately transferring true tone with clarity and noise free operation. The 22AWG Oxygen Free copper center provides enhanced signal transfer, while the 100% shield cover with 95% tinned copper braid and conductive PVC under jacket provides excellent electromagnetic interference rejection and no handling noise.

The in-line solder process utilizes modern micro flame technology and specially formulated RoHS compliant solder to create a permanent bond between wire and connector, creating unsurpassed strain relief and durability. The connectors are designed to exacting specifications and built by Neutrik in their state-of-the-art facility in Lichtenstein, using the highest quality components available. The flexible cable construction provides reduced tangling, effortless handling and uncoils easily. The innovative patented Geo-Tip provides a seamless and secure connection in any instrument, pedal or amp jack.

Available in 10’ – 30’ lengths, Planet Waves American Stage Instrument Cables will retail from $39.99 to $69.99 and will begin shipping in the Spring of 2012.

All artists copy, but reinterpretation is where the magic lies.

While I have a special place in my heart for the classics, I yearn for reinterpretation that wears its reverence for the past on its sleeve but doesn’t just feel like an imposter. In my own instruments, I try to pay homage to the vintage guitars that inspired me to play, design, and build. That will never change. But it also doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate and even adore new things. This sentiment is true for both guitars and the music they make. Hybrid mashups have existed forever, and a lot of what people think of as original musical examples are in fact reinterpretations of something they just didn’t know previously existed.
