Undertone Audio Vari-Cap Cable Provides 16 New Guitar Tones
A new guitar instrument cable from Undertone Audio allows the player to select from 16 different fixed capacitance settings, changing the tone of the guitar by varying the capacitance of the cable itself.
The interaction between the capacitance of the cable with the inductance of the instrument pick-ups has a MASSIVE influence on the sound of the instrument being used.
For the first time, a guitarist is able to vary the amount of capacitance imparted by the instrument cable itself. The Vari-Cap Cable allows the user to adjust the capacitance from an unbelievably low 150 pF to 1,650 pF in 100 pF steps.
The Vari-Cap is the work producer/engineer Eric Valentine and circuit designer Larry Jasper, following Valentine’s quest to find cables that perfectly paired with particular guitars and amps.
The UnderTone Audio Vari-Cap is available now for $99.95
