RapcoHorizon and Taylor Guitars combine to produce the VCable
(Dave Molter | Posted 2011-02-21)
If you've ever played an acoustic/electric guitar that has no volume control or a multi-pickup bass or electric guitar that has no master volume, the new VCable from RapcoHorizon and Taylor Guitars may be for you.
It's a simple concept -- a standard 1/4" instrument cable that has a volume pot installed at the instrument end of the cord on a right-angle jack. Plug the cable in and -- voila! -- instant master volume control.
The unique, patent-pending connector uses a 20 gauge pure copper center conductor and a braided shield with 95% coverage, insuring quality performance and noise free operation. The built in off position on the volume control knob allows the player to completely mute their system at the instrument, allowing players to change instruments pop-free.
Rapco Horizon offers the VCable with a choice of volume pot values: The 250K Ohm configuration can be used on virtually any electric instrument; the 500K Ohm version is designed to be compatible with electric bass and humbucker pickups.
Standard available lengths (in feet): 1, 2, 3, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 18, 20, 25, 30. Other lengths available upon request. Street price for a 20-foot cable is around $40 USD.
