Model: Instrument Cable
INTEXcables is located just down the road from Coast Sonic, these guys have been building absolute top-shelf quality cables since the 70s. These are cables meant to last for years, built from the finest possible parts to higher than standard specs.
INTEXcables are custom made to order so there will be a delay in shipping. Contact us for current turn around time.
Completely hand made in the USA from the finest components. All connector parts are made of solid metal, from the brass M642/1-1 Military Spec connector & custom engineered shell to the plated steel stress relief spring. All cables are made with Belden 8412, an industry standard microphone cable for over 40 years. No compression or crimping is used to attach cable to connector, INTEX cables are soldered insuring the strongest and most durable connection possible.
We started in a time when engineers were leaving the big corporations (see the history of StorageTek) and opening companies of their own because they were tired of being rebuffed by their employers for their new product ideas. We left our Senior Tech jobs building satellites for Ball Bros in the Boulder Valley and started a company offering hand built PCA's (Printed Circuit Assemblies) to these maverick companies. We hand stuffed and hand soldered every PCA that went out the door and soon the word of our quality spread throughout the valley. Soon, the audio production people came to us to build custom snakes and after them the studio people asked us to apply our build quality to create the next generation of recording studios. It was during this time that we saw a need for quality guitar cords so we experimented a bunch and after a while INTEXcables was born. It was the year 1976.
We built cables for a great number of musicians up and down the Front Range in the burgeoning music industry. We opened up marketplaces in Boulder, Denver & New York City. We installed nightclubs & music venues, wired both stationary and mobile recording studios, built a fair number of custom cables and worked the stage for every major concert from Folsom Field in Boulder to Mile High Stadium in Denver to Red Rocks Ampitheatre in Evergreen.
With the advent of surface mount components and pick & place machines, hand soldered PCA's became obsolete and the inevitable end came. Jump ahead to present day and we are still building studios, not the analogue studios of days past but high end Broadcast and Video Production studios. We have also expanded our product line manufacturing cables with right angle connectors, speaker cables with 1/4" and SpeakOn connectors, wireless transmitter cables with both 3.5mm and TA4f mini XLR connectors, Pedalboard cables to connect the ever growing array of pedal electronics and balanced cables of all configurations.
And yes, we still manufacture custom cables to connect 2 pieces of gear you just can't live without. Our penchant for building hand made goods will continue as long as there is still a need, and we don't see that ending any time soon.
