Planet Waves Adds Right Angle BNC & RCA Connectors, RGB End-Caps, and Cutter-Screwdriver

Following the incredible success of last year's release of Planet Waves critically acclaimed entry into the Custom Installation (CI) market, the groundbreaking company has announced new products to bolster the already popular cable line.

"We developed these products based on popular demand from our customers," said Jim D'Addario, President of J. D'Addario and Company, Inc. "This is a burgeoning market in our industry, and every bit of feedback is crucial to developing the best products possible."

The new products include right angle BNC and RCA connectors for the Planet Waves Cable Station solderless cable system. This three -step, no stripping, no crimping, no solder design cable system works seamlessly with the new right angle connector allowing for easier, cleaner installations in tight places. Planet Waves CI products use gold plated contacts for superior connectivity.

Also being launched are the new Planet Waves RGB end caps designed especially for cleaning up the frayed ends of RGB cables. Unlike other systems, the caps do not require heat shrinking or extra tools to address the frayed ends. The easy to use design is for 3 - and 5 - wire Planet Waves RGB cables.

Finally, the Planet Waves Cutter -Screwdriver helps make a clean cut for working with the Cable Station system. The unit's side -loadable design is capable of cutting up to three wires at a time, making the perfect RGB connection. It also features an ergonomic screwdriver for assembling Planet Waves connectors quickly and easily to any cable made from the Cable Station system.

Planet Waves cables are among the most popular in the industry among players and sound professionals. The Planet Waves Custom Installation line of cables is based on the company's innovative, proprietary Cable Station solderless cable -making system. Cable Station is simple, easy -to -use, extremely fast, and perhaps best of all, requires no soldering. Using one high -definition cable, custom length RCA, S -Video, F, and BNC cables can be made with a simple cut, twist, and screw.
