Gold-plated pedal couplers and 5-pedal adapter cable 20-Jan-12
HardWire has announced that it is expanding its footprint by introducing a new line of accessories built to complement the HardWire pedal line and provide the same high-quality construction for durability and performance. The accessories can be used to power HardWire and other compatible effects pedals for use on guitarist pedalboards and gear racks. This new accessory line is launching with two new products: the HardWire Gold-Plated Pedal Couplers and HV-5 Power Adapter Cable.
The HardWire Gold-Plated Pedal Couplers are 1/4-inch-to-1/4-inch adapters that connect from the output of one effects pedal to the input of another. The premium-quality adapters are gold-plated to ensure maximum signal transfer and performance, and their shorter length enables more pedals to fit in a smaller space, reducing the size of a pedalboard.
The HardWire HV-5 5-Pedal Power Adapter Cable can power up to five effects pedals. One end of the HV-5 plugs into a 9-volt DC output of an effects pedal, such as the HardWire HT-6 Polyphonic Tuner, and the five additional connectors plug into the 9-volt power adapter inputs of other HardWire effects pedals, or other brands of pedals with a compatible 9-volt center-negative power adapter input.
Rob Urry, HARMAN Professional vice president and GM, of Signal Processing and Amplifier Business Units, told Amped, "Our HardWire Gold-Plated Pedal Couplers and HV-5 5-Pedal Power Adapter Cable help ensure that there are no weak links in your pedalboard. Lesser-quality couplers or cables can degrade your signal and tone, which is why using high-quality connectors like our Gold-Plated Pedal Couplers is important. In addition, our HV-5 Power Adapter Cable can save guitarists from spending their money on batteries or additional power supplies." Pricing and Availability:
The HardWire Gold Plated Pedal Couplers are sold in pairs at an MSRP of $19.95 per pair and are currently available. The HardWire HV-5 Power Adapter Cable carries a suggested retail price of $24.95 and will be available in February 2012.
