PRS unveils additions to two accessory lines
New strings and cables from the boutique guitar company.
PRS has spruced up its strings and cable lines with fresh additions. New to the string category is the Signature Series, while the brand’s cable range welcomes the Classic Series. Here are the details:
Signature Series strings
The Signature Series is an improved version of PRS’ Classic Series. Key differences between the two are a proprietary, reformulated alloy – with greater magnetic property – and soldered ends. PRS claims that the alloy’s enhanced magnetic presence makes for louder and brighter guitar tone, while the soldered ends contribute to longer string life and more tuning stability.
Otherwise, the Signature Series is identical to its predecessor, featuring steel strings that have a hex-shaped, high-carbon steel core wrapped with nickel plating.
The Signature Series Strings are available in these seven gauges:
- 11-49 with a wound G-string
Retails at $10.99 per pack.
Classic Series cables
The Classic Series is an affordable alternative to the Signature Series. A similarity both ranges share is the cables’ carefully tuned capacitance that facilitates a pristine signal.
Unique to the Classic Series cables, however, are two features: spiral-shielding and cable ends with wrapped solder joints under the barrel. The former “provides flexibility and durability for low handling noise”, while the latter beefs up a cable with enhanced strength and durability, PRS said.
The Classic Series instrument cables are available in five lengths – 6 (patch), 5, 10, 18, and 25 inches – and two configurations: straight-to-straight and straight-to-right angle.
