A refinement of the Evidence Audio's original Lyric cable with greater resolving ability.

Evidence Audio ranks the Lyric HG Instrument Cable among their best. The combination of high-grade IGN copper conductors, solid core primary conductors means the Lyric HG offers up smooth midrange and highs with clarity and focus that reveal the harmonic detail and articulation. the cable's 20 AWG conductor size is large enough to communicate punch and authority, yet small enough to preserve a sense of air and delicacy. The symmetrical design of the Lyric HG cable allows dynamics to scream from the quietest of backgrounds without using the shield to carry your signal. Other design benefits include conductive skins applied to the positive and negative runs for reduced microphonics with high gain amps, high-density copper braid shield to ensure a clean signal to your amp, and woven nylon jacket for increased flexibility and protection during stage use.

  • IGL copper conductors
  • Symmetrical design
  • Solid core primary conductors
  • 20 AWG conductor size
  • Enhanced dielectric
  • Conductive skins applied to positive negative runs
  • High-density copper braid shield
  • Woven nylon jacket

Great Cable

By Ziggy01

from East Coast

Comments about Evidence Audio Lyric HG Instrument Cable:

I've been using George L's and Mogami cables for years with my strat and tele. I was always curious about the high-end cables though. Lyric HG KILLS George L's. It's like your guitar is in 1080p HD. Bass note definition is incredible, the mids are totally natural and uncolored, and the highs are all there (those who play fenders take note) but they're not harsh. The single notes bloom and have real 3D quality to them. If you know what dynamics are and actually use it in your playing you will be in tone heaven. You just feel more connected with this cable. Full chords and jazz chords is another area where you'll see improvement. It sounds like you have more headroom, volume and space all at the same time. The manual says it takes 40hrs to break it in with 80% after just 10hrs. I was impressed with this cable straight out the box and it only got better. It kind of creeps up on you and you find yourself smiling at the tones your getting out of your same old gear.

All this great sound does come at a price (and I don't mean $$$). The cable uses solid conductors and is very stiff and unwieldy. Not a problem if you use it in the studio or if you don't move around too much when you play. If you're going to be walking/jumping around the stage I would go with a different cable even if it didn't sound as amazing. Personally, I don't so I won't.

I think that anyone with a good rig and a decent set of ears will truly appreciate this cable and what it does for your tone. Especially if you're a guitar-to-amp kind of player.

Hands down the best!

Comments about Evidence Audio Lyric HG Instrument Cable:

Some friends got together 6 different cables from various companies because we didn't believe there could be that big a difference.The cables varied in price, but the Lyric HG was the most expensive. We each tried out the cables, one by one, then shipped them to the next person on the list.We used the same basic tests.All of them including me chose the Lyric HG as the best. Other cables were quite good, but this one stood out.I was amazed when I heard the difference. I've been playing guitar since I was 11 (57 now).When the test was over, the majority of us bought Lyric cables.I'm glad to see Musician's Friend carries them. I will probably buy another one soon.

Comments about Evidence Audio Lyric HG Instrument Cable:

Changing all my cabling in pedals to amps and speakers from the amp heads - that's how good Evidence Audio is, I had no doubts.
I had a feeling that the Evidence Audio Lyric HG would trounce and pounce all other cables out there and surely...it does. Plugged in directly to my Deluxe Reverb Reissue with volume on 5 and humungous soundfield. Like Heart sang it -- tell it like it is. Big giant sound. If you play crappy like I do with no pedals then your playing will be magnified 30 times the image and pray your neighbors are not listening. Bottom to top definition is loud and clear with no coloration. This cable is better than the M****** Platinum if you want to hear your guitar, the tubes you are using, power conditioning, etc etc. Brings out the best of single coils, it removes the haze that other cables put over the sound.
Fantastic. Only thing the cable is stiff and coils on the floor. Be careful of your position and location relative to the amps because it will amplify noise of single coils even humbuckers.
Wish it were less expensive but you get what you pay for.

Speechless at this cable


from Sacramento

Comments about Evidence Audio Lyric HG Instrument Cable:

Let me first say that I have been using monster cables for awhile before trying the Lyric HG. I am blown away at the difference in quality of tone that this cable produces. Every note I play is clearer, attack and focus is increased, and overall feel of the guitar just shines through more. Your pickups and guitar wood will be more noticeable through this cable. Absolutely amazing. Yes it is pricey, but very worth it if you play through expensive gear. I currently play through an ENGL powerball V2 through a recto cab. The change in tone is beautiful; I went ahead and ordered the siren II speaker cable after. I can't wait to complete my set up with it. If you thought cables don't affect tone much, you might be right, but not after trying this Lyric HG. Buy one if you truly care about tone. Why have expensive gear and hook it up with cheap cables? I learned something new. Highly recommend Evidence Lyric HG cables.

The Best

By Bob

from Kingston, PA

See all my reviews

Comments about Evidence Audio Lyric HG Instrument Cable:

The longer I am in music the more I can hear what makes good tone. Tone has always been my primary objective. I play bass and I think bass players require better cables than guitar or keyboard. I don't want to criticize different brands so I'll just say all other cables have PEAKS somewhere in the audio spectrum. Sometime I may want to use those cables in different live situations to manufacture different sounds. Eviidence cable does not have the midrange enhancement like other "top end" cables. For a bass player this transforms mid range presence to low end punch and makes the sound less intrusive so I can turn up (even though Evidence cables ARE LOUDER) and not have the band complain about me drowning them out, while having my sound travel further. Try turning any cable you are using now back and forth, end to end, you should be able to hear a difference in sound. If you don't, you are probably using an inexpensive amplification system and Evidence cables would probably be a waste. IF YOU CAN HEAR A DIFFERENCE...!!! It's time.

The Best Cable Ive Ever Used

By Rezin8tor

from Northglenn, CO

Comments about Evidence Audio Lyric HG Instrument Cable:

Before i used the Lyric HG cable, i didnt really think much of the fact that, the cable i used made a difference in my sound. I play in a technical melodic death metal band and before Evidence Audio I used Monster cables.. not until i switched to the lyric did i realize much of a diffence a high end cable can make. The Lyric HG delivers A crisper, clearer overall attack, making notes more distinct and perceivable. Also the overall volume seems to be much louder through The Lyric, compared to, say, Monster, or any other guitar center crap cable. Not to mention the fact that the owner of the company is without a doubt one of the best in the business, and is a great guy. The Lyric HG is definitely worth the price, for what great things it does to your sound.

The absolute best in the world.

By Joseph Cotten

from Greensboro, NC

Comments about Evidence Audio Lyric HG Instrument Cable:

I'm a serious gearhead, tonesnob and electronics geek. I've got a great rig, and I finally decided to put down the cash to get a great cable. If you do as much research as I did, you will inevitably come up with the same conclusion: the guy behind Evidence Audio Cables is an absolute genius. He successfully reinvented the wheel by starting from scratch and coming up with some new ways of making cables that make complete sense as you study the science behind it.Suffice to say that the LyricHG is not just the best cable I've ever used, it's the absolute best in the world right now. At some point in the future, somebody will probably improve on this guy's invention, but for now (late 2008), there is not better option for a cable.
