Lava Cable, a high-end custom audio cable shop in Fayetteville, NC, has added the Sommer Stratos guitar/instrument cable to its product line. Lava Cable is the only company in the U.S. offering this product terminated in custom lengths.
The Sommer Stratos is the premier coaxial cable made by Sommer Cable in Germany. With a low capacitance of 23 pF a foot and large outer diameter of .335" it is a superb sounding and rugged cable with a low tangle tendency.
Due to its low strand count of seven and special fibers interwoven with the 100% shield, it is extremely quiet and ideal for jazz and country players. Neutrik straight and G&H right angle plugs are used and each cable is assembled using German made WBT Silver Solder.
The Sommer Stratos retails at $109.95 for a 15 foot cable. As with all Lava Cable products, it comes with a lifetime warranty and numerous custom length and connector options are available. These cables can be purchased from Lava Cable's website. You can also visit Sommer Cable's website at to get more background on how this cable is made and technical specifications.
