RapcoHorizon Unveils SilverHog Guitar and Microphone Cables

The latest addition to the RoadHog Series, SilverHog is a series of high-end touring cables without the high-end price tag.

Jackson, MO (January 24, 2013) – The latest addition to the RoadHog Series, SilverHog is a series of high-end touring cables without the high-end price tag.

Built with the original RoadHog jacket, which The RapcoHorizon Company designed specifically for the touring musician, SilverHog cables also have pure silver-plated copper conductors and shields. This upgrade provides a link between ultimate sound quality and extreme durability. Like all RoadHog cables, the SilverHog comes with a limited lifetime warranty for further protection against wear and tear.

“SilverHog cables really are the best-sounding, flattest-laying and longest-lasting cables a musician will ever get their hands on,” says Lucas McCulley, marketing specialist at The RapcoHorizon Company. “The RoadHog series is one of the most popular brands in the RapcoHorizon family of products. Once a performer uses our RoadHog cable on stage, they never go back. With the addition of the SilverHog, we know the series will only trend upward.”

The SilverHog guitar cable is equipped with a 20awg pure silver-plated copper conductor, encased in a 95-percent pure silver-plated copper spiral shield with a RoadHog jacket that is incredibly durable, lays flat and coils easily. The SilverHog mic cable includes two 24awg silver-plated copper conductors and features the same spiral shield and jacket as the guitar cable.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
