Paul Reed Smith Guitars and Van Damme Cabling have teamed up to bring a quality cable to PRS’s product offerings. Cables are the lifeline of your tone, and you can trust these tried and trusted cables to carry the signal produced by your guitars and amplifiers without compromise.
PRS/VDC instrument cable is a relatively low capacitance unbalanced audio cable designed specifically for use with unbalanced output devices (read guitars!). The cable’s tight construction and dual screens of conductive thermoplastic and close lapped copper ensure flexible, noise free handling and excellent noise rejection, and all connectors utilize a no wear, no corrode hermetically sealed reed switch, making this cable ideal for onstage use.
PRS/VDC Premier Instrument Cables are offered in 10’, 18’, and 25’ lengths with either a straight to straight or straight to right angle connector setup. Straight and right angle connectors are available in “regular” or “silent” option All cables are RoHS compliant.
PRS Guitars is proud to partner with Van Damme Cabling, one of the world’s premier cable suppliers. Founded by Niall Holden (now Managing Director), Van Damme offers a comprehensive range of cables widely found on A-list tours and in studios around the world, in broadcast and post production arenas, in commercial and corporate installations and even on super yachts and hi-end sports cars.-
No stranger to the music world, one of Holden’s first orders in the eighties was from the Eurythmics. Since then Van Damme has been used extensively in Abbey Road Studios (the famous Beatles Studio 2), and the company has worked with numerous A-list artists, including Sting, Radiohead, Mark Knopfler, Muse, The Foo Fighters and Coldplay...to name a few.
“We are delighted to be associated with such a quality and respected brand as PRS Guitars. I believe the strength of the partnership lies in the same basic approach to supplying a no-nonsense, evolving quality product. With our exacting client base Van Damme has to do exactly what it says on the jar - much like PRS, we aim for the same excellence,” said Niall Holden, VDC Managing Director.
PRS and Van Damme have both been in operation since the mid 1980’s and still operate under their respective founders. Moreover, both brands have largely been built on reputations of quality and customer service.
“We are very excited to be working with Niall and the whole Van Damme family. Like PRS, Van Damme is extremely focused on quality, reliability and continual improvement, and because both of our shops have an independent character, the partnership has been effortless every step of the way. We trust their cables to faithfully bring to life the tone that we work so hard to get from our guitars and amplifiers,” commented Jack Higginbotham, PRS President.
Back Door Slam
"People spend a fortune on guitars, amps and effects while paying little attention to how they connect them. PRS cables are the only choice for players who really care about their tone"
"The fact is, it takes years to find the right combination of guitars, amps, effects and cabinets. So why link them with something cheap? PRS cables are noise free, durable and offer pure sound integrity for touring and studio work."
"I am way past my wireless era. I prefer to stay true to the sound, even at the cost of stage freedom. That's why I use cables. PRS cables. They don't seduce you with a slick look, they don't attract you with oversized diameter (as if it had something to do with the sound…). What they do is transmit your unaltered sound straight to your amp, and this is exactly what I expect from great cables. They don't coil and tangle on stage. Perfect cables for a pro player. A huge "Thank you" and hats off to Paul for delivering another great product."
