New Hosa Flat Guitar Patch Cables Now Available

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.”
