OVERVIEW

The Tephra speaker cable with straight to straight ends has been created based on years of customer feedback combining the best features from several different speaker cable types. It is an 8-conductor, 13 AWG, stranded copper speaker cable that significantly enhances guitar amp speaker performance and tone. With a thick outer jacket and jumbo G&H speaker plugs, it is built for the rigors of stage use and to be extremely durable. Like actual Tephra from a volcanic eruption, rigs using the Tephra speaker cable will explode with bigger, fatter and better tone.

Various sizes available. Please see drop down menu to the right.

The Tephra will make your amp erupt with improved tone and frequency response at an affordable price.

    Comments about Lava Tephra Speaker Cable Straight to Straight:

    This is the FIRST speaker cable that I have used that you can actually HEAR the difference in the sound. Really amazing! How anyone could not give these cables 5 stars is beyond me. Someone said they are "too bulky". Thinner cable is not good for amps and speakers and can worsen the dampening factor. I like that they use large 1/4" plugs because it makes them more easily identifiable as speaker cables rather than instrument cables. The bright orange color helps too and looks very cool. If you were to accidentally use an instrument cable it could damage your amplifier. These cables are made by war veterans in the USA and they really make sure that the quality is spot on. These are the best cables I have ever used by far and I will support this company because they take pride in their work. My only complaint would be that I wish they would make speaker cables with Neutrik Speakon connectors and banana connectors so I could buy these for my Polk monitor speakers that I power with a QSC amp.

        Comments about Lava Tephra Speaker Cable Straight to Straight:

        I found the plug added a bit more "bite" to my sound. You may not like this plug if you have pickups that have more of a treble-type sound. Solid construction, but I wonder if the same quality could be designed into a less bulky plug.

        Comments about Lava Tephra Speaker Cable Straight to Straight:

        This speaker cable changed my tone in such a wonderful and dramatic way. It helps when you start a review by letting people know a little about your setup and experience level. I've been playing guitar for almost 15 years, I'm 29, and I currently have this cable plugged into a Diezel Einstein, so you know I have a pretty nice rig. I've always used a Monster gold tipped speaker cable to connect my head to my 3x12 cab, and it worked very well when I used to play gigs and travel. It's still a nice cable, black, sturdy, great connection, and puts out a good sound. I never thought about the speaker cable being an important part of my rig, but I have seen the light. My amp is probably due for a tube change in the next 6 months, I've noticed some of the highs rolling off and the bass is a little boomy. This is what I heard until I plugged into the Tephra. WOW, the highs blossomed, the bass tightened up, and I thought I was playing through an entirely new amp. It got me pretty excited to think this amount of change could come from a speaker cable! I'm actually looking forward to the sound of my amp once I replace the older KT88's and 12ax7's with a fresh set. If you have a relatively nice amp and rig and need a HIGH QUALITY speaker cable, get the Tephra. The only downside I see is the high price compared to other quality options, but you sometimes have to pay for better quality, and I think it will last me and be worth it down the road. This is not a bad investment for someone who has made an investment in nice guitar equipment, speakers, and an amp, and is worth it in my opinion. The Tephra is about twice the thickness of my Monster cable, which made me chuckle a little when I took it out of the box, but it makes a world of a difference in terms of tone. If you just need a decent speaker cable that will sound really good, get the monster. The Tephra has really changed my sound for the better.

          Comments about Lava Tephra Speaker Cable Straight to Straight:

          I've been using a "high-end" speaker cable for my amps for years now. While it always produced a decent tone, I realized that it was perhaps time to look for something more rugged. While I was initially surprised a speaker cable could cost so much, I figured it was cheap insurance to make sure my amps would run healthy well into the future.

          This cable is built VERY well and matched my Orange halfstack beautifully. Now, while these are great aspects of the cable, I must admit the tone enhancement I received was well worth the price of admission: more lows, more volume and a great tone! I couldn't believe the difference and spent a good 30 minutes demoing my old cable against this one. In comparison, my old cable sounded strangled, thin and really muddy. Frankly, I had been considering selling my OR50, but this cable has cured everything I disliked about this amp, and every other amp I used with my old cable.

          If you care about getting the most out of your gear, this cable should be at the top of your wish list.
