Tube microphone cable

Shielded, balanced sound conductor for the perfect connection of vacuum tube microphones with the PSU. Due to the famous, VOVOX-specific design of the cable, tube microphones do not only benefit from the optimal transmission of the audio signals, but also from the optimal supply of current.

  • single solid core conductor for signal, ground and voltage
  • signal conductor made of the purest available copper
  • natural fibers netting around signal conductor wire
  • pigment and plasticizer-free high purity polymers
  • shielded
  • individually hand-made, customized for many microphone types

 

Important note: The manufacturers of tube microphones assemble diverse types of connectors. The number of contacts but also the pinout diagram is different from brand to brand. For that reason VOVOX® sonorus tube cables are individually made for their respective microphone model. The customer also defines the length of the cable. What you will finally get is a handmade single piece of outstanding quality – exactly what the treasures of your studio deserve.

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.

Flexibility and durablity in spite of solid core conductors

To offer maximum sound quality, VOVOX is strictly using solid core and not stranded wires. In order to keep the cables flexible and durable, they are designed in a unique way. Every conductor is seperately coated with a polymer jacketing to form a lead. The various leads are helical stranded and covered by a flexible netting. Due to this construction the wires remain in the neutral axis when flexing the cable. Like this it is possible to prevent the wires from critical compression or tension, they are only smoothly bent.
