Lava Cable has completely re-designed its high-end proprietary guitar and instrument cable - The Lava ELC™ (Extreme Low Capacitance). The new Lava ELC™ cable now has a larger outer diameter, lower capacitance, increased shielding, and it uses purer oxygen free copper - 99.999% pure for both the conductor and shield.
The new Lava ELC™ cable has been specifically re-designed for guitar and instrument applications and is made in the USA. The new improved Lava ELC™ cable is now more flexible, rugged and it provides increased sonic performance by using a lower strand count conductor. At 15 pF per foot, it has the lowest capacitance of any guitar cable on the market.
Every aspect of this cable was re-designed with the guitar and bass player in mind to provide for low microphonics, reliability, and superior frequency response. Neutrik straight and G&H right angle plugs are used and each cable is assembled using German made WBT Silver Solder.
The new Lava ELC retails at $69.95 for a 20 foot cable. As with all Lava Cable products, numerous custom length and connector options are available.
The specifications of the cable are:
Conductor: 20 awg stranded 99.999% pure OFC copper
Insulation: Foamed PE
Electro-static: Conductive PVC
Shield: 98% coverage 99.999% pure OFC copper
Final jacket: Black PVC .305 diameter
