VOVOX® sonorus protect A patch



VOVOX® sonorus protect A patch cable

The VOVOX® sonorus protect A patch is nothing else than a short version of the popular instrument cable VOVOX® sonorus protect A. The capacitance of 75 pF/m is very low, therefore it has excellent technical requirements for optimal sound quality.

      • solid core conductors for signal and ground
      • conductors made of the purest available copper
      • natural fibers netting around every single conductor wire
      • capacitance of merely 75 pF/m
      • VOVOX-typical cable construction with screen and separate conductor for ground

Connectors for VOVOX® sonorus patch

The phone plugs with a tip contact of pure copper are soldered by hand. The best conditions for long-lasting optimal sound.

Made in Switzerland

VOVOX® sound conductors are hand-assembled in Switzerland. The cables, including the solder, are lead-free.

Highest quality conductor materials

The selection of the right conductor material is crucial for the sound. The basis of all VOVOX® sonorus cables are solid core conductors made from ultra-pure copper. Each wire is covered by a netting of natural fibers. This prevents from so called triboelectric noise and further enhances sound quality.

Ultra-pure polymers

VOVOX® sonorus sound conductors are covered with high-tech polymers. Although plastics are not directly involved in the signal transmission, they do have an effect on the sound quality. VOVOX® doesn't use any PVC. Only ultra-pure plastics without plasticizers are used. Even the use of colour pigments is almost completely avoided.

Additional conductor for ground

The conductors within a cable must fulfil several functions. The shield has the main function of protecting the signal conductor from interference. In most cables, the shield is also used as the return signal conductor. VOVOX® consequently separates these functions. This may be a more complex construction, yet it results clearly in better sound quality.

Optimal protection from microphonic noise

When a guitar cable is moved or stepped on, small electrical signals are created due to the change of the capacitance or due to electrostatic charges. This effect is called microphonic. It creates a disturbing crackling noise. Usually this phenomenon is avoided with the help of conductive plastics. Howevery, like this also sound quality is negatively affected. We have found our own technique to solve the problem of microphonic noise using natural materials - without compromizing sound quality.

Very low capacitance

It is impossible to judge the quality of an instrument cable just based on its capacitance. Nevertheless, to have a low capacitance is a precondition for a cable to transmit the whole frequency range. VOVOX® sonorus protect A has a very low capacitance of only 75 pF/m.

Directionality

VOVOX® sonorus patch cables have a directionality as well. The difference in sound quality is only minimal. Nevertheless, in order to get optimal results, connect the plug with the VOVOX® logo to the signal receiver. If you visualize the signal flow as an arrow, the logo is located at the tip of the arrow.

Hank Shizzoe hat für uns Klangbeispiele aufgenommen. Es wurde bewusst mit einem sehr einfachen Set-up mit wenigen Komponenten gearbeitet. Die verschiedenen Takes wurden separat eingespielt. Es gibt also kleine Unterschiede im Tonmaterial. Der Klangcharakter der Kabel wird aber dennoch deutlich.
