Bill Lawrence and his federally registered "Designer" Service Mark
Bill Lawrence presents his newest accessory line -- offering
the culmination of forty years experience in low capacitance guitar cables and
"push-on" solderless plugs!
UPDATE 08/03/05 -- We offer two plugs --Long (see picture below)
and Short. The Long Plug is for guitar and the Short Plug is for Pedal Board.
Bill wanted to offer an option for the Pedal Board that functioned properly and is affordably priced. ( Bill completed the push-on right angle plug design years ago but for a push-on right angle plug to function properly and stay connected, it would be double the price than our current options. See our incredibly low prices at bottom of page.) Since Bill's cable has it's own natural flexibilty, when assembled with the Short Plug, a right angle naturally forms.
Bill's plugs and cable are designed to last
for many, many years of use......and remember -- the strain
relief is built in!
Bill's CABLE & PLUGS ARE PROUDLY MADE IN THE USA
The BL-150 Low Capacitance Cable
Bill says: "The hardest task was the cable. For maximum performance,
I demanded low capacitance cable of 20 picofarads per foot, free of static
electricity, and a high tensile strength that does not require an additional
strain relief. Also important is that all insulators are free of any chemicals
that can cause oxidation of the conductors."
The BL-150 cable's primary insulator, combined with the BL-15 solderless
plug's setscrew, can withstand a lot of pull!
Why Low Capacitance?
2. High-capacitance cables shift the resonance towards the lower frequencies
which dramatically alters tone. For example, Jimi Hendrix used a coiled
cord with 3,000 picofarads (.003 microfarads), shifting the resonance
below 2,000 Hertz on his Strats. This was the secret of Jimi's tone. Shifting
the resonance frequency at 2,000 Hertz has a similar effect to a midrange
boost. However, when he recorded and needed a typical Strat sound for
some tracks, Jimi switched to a short, low-capacitance cable.
