The connectors are designed by Planet Waves and built by Neutrik in their state-of-the-art facility in Lichtenstein, using the high quality components. The American Stage instrument cable also provides reduced tangling and easier uncoiling with its flexible cable construction.
Brian Vance, D’Addario’s Director of Product Management, was quoted saying: "It feels great to get recognized for our hard work with this new cable! We wanted to develop an instrument cable that sounds great, is flexible, and built like a tank. That’s precisely what we’ve done with American Stage.”
