Good sound, medicore quality

The sound of this cable is quite balanced and punchy, quite tight. The only thing which it lacks in my opinion is the thickness like in LLX or tweed series.

Unfortunately I think that Sommer has kept the old prices but the quality of their cables is worse, the font has changed, and to me it seems the white material used to cover the hot wire and the black screen changed as well, now it is less clean when screen is removed and white material melts easier. It used to be good compared to other products, now it is nothing exceptional.

Since it is cheap, I would say it deserves a good note compared to more expensive Sommer models, which seem to bring same quality for much higher price.


Never thought that good cables can cost so less money.

This cable in my opinion is absolutely outstanding option if you want high quality shielded low noise cable for your guitar, bass or other instrument. The price per meter is very low but don?t be wrong - it really worth its money. Together with pair of Neutrick jacks overall price of 3 or 6 meter cable is almost same as you would buy a cheap one, but the quality is way beyond that.

Let?s start with cable construction. Upper isolation is made of pretty thick hard rubber that makes it very enduring. Main conductor is isolated with another hard material prevents wires from breaking. Overall all this triple shielding does its work - cable is super solid and suitable for touring musicians as well. Wires are not so thin and there are no worries that after soldering connection spots could be fragile and can break up.

Checked them with both guitar and bass and can say that there are no sound filtering - sound is same as with more expensive wires. Needless to say that it is hard to notice at the beginning, but I think there are no even minor loss of bass or high freqs. Comparing with other cheap cables this provides less noisy sound. Even if you have distortion or compressor in chain.

I am really happy with them, made 2x 3m and one 6m cable for my live and studio work. Main points are low noise, very solid build and quality materials. A great alternative to, for example, some Klotz cables.
