NAMM 2013 PRESS RELEASE: ANAHEIM, Calif. - January 24, 2013 - NAMM Booth #4834 - D'Addario, the world's largest manufacturer of guitar strings and other musical instrument accessories, announces the expansion of its successful Planet Waves™ American Stage line of cables to include Right Angle Instrument cables and XLR Microphone cables.

The unique engineering and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques combine to create cables that exceed the most demanding expectations, allowing the brilliance of the musician's instrument and/or voice to shine through. Planet Waves continues to be committed to offering the best sounding, most reliable cables available.

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. When you hear the "click," it makes you feel secure that a connection has been made. Then, when you play through it and hear the superior sound, it's just a win-win," says Rob Cunningham, Planet Waves Product Manager.

Also available are American Stage XLR Microphone Cables which Planet Waves also manufactures in America with premium, audiophile cable. These cables feature exclusive high quality connectors built by Neutrik and utilize aerospace crimp connector technology.
