Sommer Cable has introduced new SC-Silver Stage microphone cables that are comprised of copper with silver alloy wire, a combination designed to provide optimum conductivity and consistent performance specs over long periods of time.
Silver is sometimes described by electrical engineers as “alive” due to natural oxidation. Unlike copper oxide, silver oxide is conductive, but its electrical and mechanical properties can vary slightly over time, causing the sonic tone color to change.
The new SC-Silver Stage cable uses tightly and concentrically stranded class 6N copper wire, which is then refined and smoothed with high-quality silver alloy. The result is a cable designed to offer long-lasting performance stability and one that can be assembled easily with silver solder and without electrical losses.
SC-Silver Stage has a flexible yet robust outer jacket composed of temperature-resistant PVC that is fortified with gas-foamed, smoothed wire insulation. It can serve as a balanced connection cable for microphones, mixing consoles and patchbays both in the studio and on stage. With 120 ohms of wave impedance, the cable performs within AES/EBU tolerances.
SC-Silver Stage cable is available both as bulkware or as ready-made lengths with XLR connection for immediate use. Go here for more specifics.
