Gepco International, an industry leader in the manufacturing and distribution of quality professional audio and video cables, introduced the XB20UB – X-Band Unbalanced Guitar/Instrument Cable at AES 2007. The first unbalanced cable in the X-Band series, the XB20UB offers users X-Band performance in guitar and instrument applications.

The XB20UB features a heavy gage (20AWG) oxygen-free copper conductor for maximum conductivity and corrosion resistance. To provide exceptional EMI/RF rejection and low triboelectric handling noise, the XB20UB has two densely stranded 95% copper braid shields combined with a semi-conductive PVC layer. As with all X-Band cables, the XB20UB has a data-grade, foam dielectric that significantly reduces the capacitance of the cable. The outer jacket is constructed from Gepco‘s G-Flex PVC compound that is exceptionally flexible, easy to strip, and abrasion resistant.

“By offering the low-loss and noise rejection performance of the X-band series in an unbalanced design, we are now able to offer pro-audio interconnect performance for guitar and instrument applications,” said Scott Fehl, Gepco‘s product development manager. “Compared to typical, MI-type instrument cables, the XB20UB unbalanced X-Band cable has significantly lower attenuation, noise rejection, and durability.”
