Solid Cables Announces Eleph Speaker Cable

Solid Cables has unveiled its entry into the speaker cable market

Pasadena, CA (November 26, 2009) – Solid Cables, manufacturer of painstakingly detailed and handmade audio cables has unveiled its entry into the speaker cable market.The new Eleph speaker utilizes ultra pure copper conductor of different diameters to better carry the full frequency spectrum of sound any amplifier could create.In doing this, the Eleph cable provides a truly transparent link between the amplifier and the speaker.

Solid Cables believes they are the first to make the innovation of using not only an ultra pure copper 10 gauge conductor, but one made up of different diameter strands to better carry the full spectrum of sound. The conductors are in a helical wind pattern to resist electrical and mechanical noise and housed in a 6000 PSI tear resistant armor. All conductors are permanently isolated in an avionics grade adhesive to eliminate internal breakage, shorting or solder joint failure.

Features include:
• Suspended polymer insulator
• All metal shell
• Armor and ends permanently fused with avionics grade heat shrink
• Hand soldered using premium audio grade silver alloy
• Helical wound ultra pure copper conductor, multiple diameter
• Quadruple strain relief
• 6000 PSI tear resistant protective outer armor
• Available with Speakon™ connectors
• Available in Carbon Black only

MSRP: $135 for 3’ Eleph speaker cable

Beautiful playability. Stable under neck-wobbling, pitch-bending maneuvers.

Polarizing styling and construction if you’re strictly traditional. Expensive for a niche instrument.

The first and perhaps most important thing to know about Riversong’s Glennwood TS6 is that it aspires to hybridize elements of electric and acoustic guitars. This is not a new idea—certainly not in the amplified acoustic era, where the straightest route to eliminating feedback is by reducing the resonant elements that cause feedback in the first place. Some acoustic/electrics achieve these ends by slimming bodies down to electric-guitar thickness. Riversong, however, sticks to traditional acoustic formula by making the TS6 a full-sized instrument. Its dimensions are a little bit atypical: the 16" wide body and 4 3/4" thickness are about the same size as Martin’s “jumbo” J body and the Taylor Grand Pacific. The pretty silhouette also echoes the curvaceousness of those larger guitars. Those similarities sometimes feel like an exception, though. At nearly every other turn, the TS6 very happily breaks the acoustic design mold.
