Cables-the Final Link
Monster Cable's legendary microphone and musical instrument cables, found in many of the world's top recording studios, are used religiously by engineers, producers and musicians alike. In fact, Monster's cables are acknowledged as the reference standard for some of today's hottest artists.

These professionals recoginize that the quality and sound of their cables play a crucial role in delivering the very best possible sound reproduction. And in the highly competitive world of music, Monster(r) gives the artist and recording engineer that extra edge to turn an ordinary performance into something extraordinary.

Engineered for Better Sound
While other cables can smother sound, increase distortion and flatten bass, Prolink(R) cables utilize unique patented technologies such as multi-gauge Bandwidth Balanced(r) wire networks and Time Correct(r) windings to transfer complex music signals between components with greater accuracy and proper phase alignment.

Monster's MicroFiber(r) dielectric employs an intricate process of winding an air-core fiber around each individual conductor to reduce dielectric losses and electromagnetic distortions. MicroFiber increases dynamic range, extending high frequencies and reducing background noise.

In addition, Monster's MultiTwist construction, ultra-dense shielding and conductive polymer dielectrics are used to eliminate hum, interference and handling noise.

Wider frequency response and more natural reproduction of harmonics are just some of the improvements musicians discover with Monster Cable Prolink microphone and studio interconnect cables.

Designed with the Musician in Mind...
Monster Cables is proud to introduce the Performer 500 Series of instrument cables specifically engineered for the style of music you play. Style-specific cable designs unlock the full potential of your instrument's tonality and feel, and add a signature-quality to your personal sound.

Monster recognizes the importance of a high integrity, long lasting connection. Their connectors are designed for maximum signal transfer and the ability to withstand and the rigors of stage and studio environments.
