New Hosa Face Masks Now Available

New Hosa Face Masks Now Available

Buena Park, CA, January 2021 — Hosa is pleased to introduce the newest addition to the growing list of preventative and protective products, Hosa Face Masks. With social distancing measures still in place, personal safety has become all the more important.

A growing portfolio of research has been done on the efficacy of masks over the past year. Reusable cloth masks have been shown to be effective in preventing large droplets from entering the atmosphere, which could then become aerosolized and spread airborne pathogens. Hosa Face Masks use a polyester outer layer, cotton inner layer, and come with one 5-layer filter which can be easily replaced.

Some masks and facial coverings can feel restrictive and uncomfortable, leading to people touching and adjusting them consistently. Hosa Face Masks are stretchable and non-restrictive, made with a material that allows for good breathability without sacrificing what makes masks effective in the first place.

Hosa Face Masks are washable and reusable, reducing waste from disposable surgical masks that workers and gigging professionals have used since returning to work from the global pandemic.

“Even in areas where there are less government-enforced restrictions in place, it’s still the norm for private businesses to take it upon themselves to practice social distancing” adds Jose Gonzalez, Hosa’s Director of Marketing & Product Development. “While there are an abundance of masks on the market, we think we offer something just as effective and also more comfortable which can be worn anywhere.”

The New Hosa Face Masks are available at an MSRP of $24.95.

Buena Park, CA, December 2020 — Hosa is pleased to introduce the newest addition to the growing list of preventative and protective products, Hosa A/V Work Gloves. These work gloves provide much needed comfort and protection to professionals in the music industry.

Whether working with permanent or temporary setups, Hosa A/V Work Gloves protect your hands without limiting your abilities. Synthetic leather tips on the thumb, index, and middle fingers, allow use of touch screen devices that continue to expand in the marketplace. The stylish Hosa “H” silicone grips on the palm also make grabbing and gripping heavy gear during load-in and teardown easier than with your bare hands while providing extra protection.

Hosa A/V Work Gloves are form-fitting so you don’t have to sacrifice dexterity while wearing them. Unlike other gloves, Hosa A/V Work Gloves utilize a breathable fabric on the back of the hand to help ventilate and keep your hands from overheating. Hosa A/V Work Gloves also feature an adjustable hook and loop strap for adjustable security and comfort.

Hosa Work Gloves are washable and reusable, reducing waste and eliminating the cost of disposable gloves that workers and gigging professionals have invested in since returning to work from the global pandemic.

We’re proud of the new Hosa A/V Work Gloves and know it will become a valuable asset to those working with A/V equipment in any setting.”

New Goby Labs Hand Sanitizer by Hosa Now Available

Kills 99.99% of all common bacteria

Buena Park, CA, August 2020 — Hosa is pleased to introduce the newest addition to the Goby Labs line of cleaning products, Goby Labs Hand Sanitizer. With safety and sanitation being ever more prevalent in the minds of performers and their audience, Goby Labs Hand Sanitizer is formulated within the FDA’s guidelines to offer protection and peace of mind in a convenient package.

Goby Labs Hand Sanitizer is 80% denatured ethyl alcohol v/v, meeting FDA regulations to protect against viral particles such as COVID-19. Because the solution is alcohol-based, it dries quickly, minimizing wait time before resuming normal performance tasks that would otherwise be delayed with wet hands.

Rather than being a gel, the Goby Labs Hand Sanitizer is a sprayable liquid, allowing the solution to be easily applied on the hands, arms, or common surfaces using the simple spray applicator. Once applied, you only need to distribute the solution by rubbing your hands until it dries.

Like most things in a performer’s life, there is a constant compromise between the size, weight, and space any of their equipment occupies, which is why Goby Labs Hand Sanitizer comes in an easily portable 2oz bottle. These will fit in any size gig bag or road kit alongside other Goby Labs sanitation products, like the Microphone Sanitizer, meaning you never have to find yourself without sanitizer due to the size of the bottle.

“People are understandably anxious about public events and how easily germs can spread”, adds Jose Gonzalez, Hosa’s Director of Marketing & Product Development. “Goby Labs Microphone Sanitizer has already been an established and trusted solution for sanitizing mics for the touring professional, so it seemed natural to pair an effective hand sanitizer alongside it that is easy to apply and convenient to take on the road.”

The New Goby Labs Hand Sanitizer will come in 2oz bottles. Find them at your favorite Hosa authorized reseller.

New Hosa Pro Guitar Patch Cables Now Available

Upgraded space-saving cables for pedalboards

Buena Park, CA, April 2020 — Hosa Technology, Inc., the leading provider of analog and digital connectivity solutions for the modern musician, is pleased to introduce the latest line expansion to the Hosa Pro line of cables, Hosa Pro Guitar Patch Cables. This addition to the Hosa Pro Guitar Cable line improves upon the previous patch cable version by incorporating a new pancake REAN connector that keeps the ruggedness of Hosa Pro and maximizes the limited space on pedalboards.

Guitarists use many pedals to craft their sound, and space is always the biggest consideration. Hosa Pro Series Guitar Patch Cables feature flat, nickel-plated REAN connectors by Neutrik AG, minimizing empty space and creating room for additional effects.

Hosa Pro Patch Cables also feature 20 AWG Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors for signal clarity, making them a significant upgrade over standard guitar patch cables in both economy of space and signal transfer.

A 90% OFC braided shield protects against audio interference and helps make these cables among the more durable and long-lasting guitar patch cables available. Players want to know they can rely on their cables to get through each performance, which may include getting stepped on, pulled, and switched out as guitarists put a pedalboard through its paces. The new Hosa Pro Patch Cables are designed to deliver that dependability.

“A pedalboard is often a compromise between space and quality,” said Jose Gonzalez, Director of Marketing & Product Development at Hosa. “Hosa Pro Guitar Patch Cables provide improved durability and sonic integrity while not sacrificing space for additional pedals.”

Hosa Pro Guitar Patch Cables are available now at MSRP’s of $16.05 for 6”, $16.50 for 12”, and $16.80 for 18” each, respectively. Find them at your favorite Hosa authorized reseller starting April 2020.

New Hosa Flat Guitar Patch Cables Now Available

A space-saving solution for pedalboards

Buena Park, CA, November 2018 — Hosa Technology, Inc. is pleased to introduce the Hosa Flat Guitar Patch Cable Series. The new cables securely interconnect guitar effects pedals where space is limited.

Guitar players rely on effects pedals to experiment and develop unique sounds. Pedalboards keep these effects organized and in reach while cables are tucked underneath and out of the way. Hosa Flat Guitar Patch Cables are highly flexible and can pass through pedalboard slots with ease. Slender molded connectors make these cables ideal for tight spaces.

Hosa’s new patch cables are flexible, lightweight, and flat. Despite their thin profile, solid Hosa construction still lies beneath the jacket. Hosa Flat Guitar Patch Cables feature 24 AWG Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors for signal clarity and OFC shielding to protect against interference.

Space is always a main concern when it comes to pedalboards. Traditional guitar cable connectors are simply not practical and solder-less patch cables can sacrifice durability to eliminate the connector housing. Hosa’s new flat cables sport slim, 7 mm molded housings to save space while maintaining a secure connection.

Guitarists want to take full advantage of their pedalboard. Hosa Flat Guitar Patch Cables provide secure connections without taking up unnecessary space, giving players access to their full arsenal of pedals to craft unique tones.

Hosa Flat Guitar Patch Cables are available now at MSRP’s ranging from $6.30 for a single cable to $36.30 for a pack of six.

New Hosa Monkey Bars Patch Cable Holder Joins the Synth Playground

Monkey Bars go anywhere your rig needs to go

Buena Park, CA, October 2018 — Hosa Technology, Inc. is pleased to introduce the Hosa Monkey Bars Patch Cable Holder. Hosa Monkey Bars organizes patch cables and adaptors, and goes everywhere your rig needs to go.

The Hosa Monkey Bars Patch Cable Holder is a heavy-duty unit capable of holding a variety of patch cables and adaptors so they are always within reach. Monkey Bars features 22 cable slots for maximum capacity. Each slot includes wide and narrow sections to accommodate patch cables of different diameters. The two side trays are deep enough to hold adaptors of most sizes—even larger adaptors like the popular Hosa Knucklebones.

What truly sets Monkey Bars apart is its versatility. Like the majority of existing patch cable holders, Monkey Bars can be attached to a wall. In addition, Hosa’s patch cable holder can also be secured to the bottom of a desktop in smaller workstations so you can patch and play without leaving your seat. Finally, thanks to the included stand clamp, Hosa Monkey Bars can be attached to a microphone stand to create a mobile patch cable holder.

As we began development of a patch cable holder for the modular synthesizer crowd, we noticed how often the entire rig must be packed up and taken out into the world. Events like Modular on the Spot inspired us to design Monkey Bars to be truly mobile so that it could travel and be set up wherever it was needed.

Hosa Monkey Bars Patch Cable Holder is available now at an MSRP of $29.95. Contact your favorite Hosa reseller for more information.

New Hosa Hopscotch Patch Cables Now Available

Unique pigtail patch point ideal for modular synths

Buena Park, CA, February 2017 — Hosa Technology, Inc., the leading innovator of analog and digital connectivity solutions for the modern musician, is pleased to introduce the CMM-500Y Series Hopscotch Patch Cables. Designed with modular synthesizers in mind, the new CMM-500Y Series features a unique pigtail patch point that enables users to split a signal at its output for additional versatility.

Using patch cables, audio signals can “jump” from one device to another. This is most noticeable in modular synthesizers, where signals travel in and out of modules multiple times. Hosa’s Hopscotch Patch Cables each include a short pigtail with a female 3.5 mm TS jack at one end of the cable. This jack makes it possible to take a signal that has already been patched elsewhere and send it along a completely new path. The pigtail design moves the jack far enough away from the connector—where space is limited—but close enough to identify the output to which it is connected.

Featuring Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors, flexible spiral shielding, and nickel-plated plugs, Hopscotch Patch Cables are manufactured to meet the needs of today’s electronic musicians. The series utilizes slim plugs that make it possible to use in any modular synthesizer rig without interfering with other cables or controls. The combination of high-quality components and Hosa’s world-class workmanship results in outstanding cables that provide years of exceptional performance.

Hopscotch Patch Cables are color-coded by length to easily identify the cable needed prior to making the next patch. CMM-545Y consists of five yellow, 1.5-foot (45 cm) cables. For an assortment of lengths, the CMM-500Y-MIX includes one of each of the following cables: red 6-inch (15 cm), orange 1-foot (30 cm), yellow 1.5-foot (45 cm), green 2-foot (60 cm), and blue 3-foot (90 cm).

Hosa Technology’s Product Manager, Jose Gonzalez, commented on their latest release, “Modular synthesizers provide multiple fun and exciting ways to manipulate sound. Hosa’s new Hopscotch Patch Cables minimize patching limitations and make it easier to implement new sonic ideas instantly.” He continued, “We’re confident the superior construction, slim housing, and unique pigtail patch point will make Hopscotch Patch Cables must-have options in modular synth rigs everywhere.”

Hosa’s Hopscotch Patch Cables are available now. MSRP for each of the two options is $34.95.

We are confident this line will become a go-to solution for anyone looking to get the most out of their headphones.”
