Planet Waves American Stage Right Angle Instrument Cables reproduce the natural tones of your instrument with zero interference.  The cables are designed and manufactured in the USA with plugs featuring Planet Waves’ patented Geo-Tip made by Neutrik.  Available at 10’ and 20’ lengths, the Right Angle Instrument cables will retail from $44.99 – $69.99 and will be shipping January 1, 2013.

“The American Stage Cables make a solid connection into your instrument, pedal or amp jack, thanks to the patented Geo-Tip.

Then, when you play through it and hear the superior sound, it’s just a win-win,” says Rob Cunningham, Planet Waves Product Manager.
