Gepco Introduces X-Band Unbalanced Guitar/Instrument Cable

Bringing X-Band Performance to an Unbalanced Design

DES PLAINES, IL, October 5, 2007— Gepco International has introduced the XB20UB - X-Band Unbalanced Guitar/Instrument Cable. The first unbalanced cable in the X-Band series, the XB20UB offers users X-Band performance in guitar and instrument applications.

The XB20UB features a heavy gage (20AWG) oxygen-free copper conductor for maximum conductivity and corrosion resistance. To provide exceptional EMI/RF rejection and low triboelectric handling noise, the XB20UB has two densely stranded 95% copper braid shields combined with a semi-conductive PVC layer. As with all X-Band cables, the XB20UB has a data-grade, foam dielectric that significantly reduces the capacitance of the cable. The outer jacket is constructed from Gepco's G-Flex PVC compound that is exceptionally flexible, easy to strip, and abrasion resistant.

"By offering the low-loss and noise rejection performance of the X-band series in an unbalanced design, we are now able to offer pro-audio interconnect performance for guitar and instrument applications," said Scott Fehl, Gepco's product development manager. "Compared to typical, MI-type instrument cables, the XB20UB unbalanced X-Band cable has significantly lower attenuation, noise rejection, and durability."

Gepco® International, with headquarters in Des Plaines, IL, and branch locations in Burbank, CA and Chestnut Ridge, NY, has been a leading provider of studio and broadcast audio and video cables for more than 25 years. The company also specializes in manufacturing custom cable assemblies, panels, patch bay harnesses and breakout boxes.
