Lava Cable UltramaficPublished on 11/22/14 at 07:52

I bought these Ultramafic cable length 4.5 meters to replace my ProCo Defender Excalibur and I used input and output pedalboard. Both ProCo 6 meters were my "references" in the cable run. To talk about price, I bought it a few years ago (2007 I think) for 60 € (Excalbur) and 90 € (Defender). Well for some additional € uros it are largely buried!

For technical specifications, I invite you to watch the Lava Cable's official website, very complete. These cables are high-end, features are at the top (silver solder, silver cable, low capacitance).

The section of these Lava cables is very important. This means that you lose some flexibility, although it is not bad either. They are...…

For technical specifications, I invite you to watch the Lava Cable's official website, very complete. These cables are high-end, features are at the top (silver solder, silver cable, low capacitance).

The section of these Lava cables is very important. This means that you lose some flexibility, although it is not bad either. They are equipped with jacks connectors that look strong. The violet color is very nice.

I use my two Ultramafic to connect my guitar to my pedalboard and my pedalboard my amp. My pedalboard is equipped Georges cables L's, which even if they are certainly not be at the Ultramafic represent approximately 1 meter cable. The influence on the sound should be rather limited since the quality of these is not bad at all.

The first time, I thought my amp was an adjustment problem. The highs were much more present with my ex-Proco. In the end, the highs are much more present, finer, more detailed and the output level is a little more important. The cable does not add to the sound frequencies, it simply just more faithfully recreate the signal generated by the guitar, period! And with these Ultramafic is really ideal. The guitar sounds like it should sound, period!

In conclusion, these cables are of incredible quality. Despite a high price (109 € in 4.5 meters), it is the best that I have ever heard. There is even a more high-end model from Lava Cable with "Van den Hul" series but the prices really are sky high. Furthermore, I was advised against Vovox brand because too smooth and compressed ... (says a seller of Pigalle store. I said that it was a huh ^^ music store).

If you have a great amp and a great guitar, you really should try these Ultramafic ... You should be conquered.

I ordered this cable from Lava kit along with a "free settle" for my pedalboard.

Personally I did not too often discussed the differences between cables as one remains in the high end. I was convinced that as this was a quality cable, everything sounded substantially similar. I've had dozens of different brands of cables and I have never heard any significant difference. I took this cable out of curiosity more than anything else because I was not unhappy at all of my Rock Monster.

The cable is strong section but remains flexible enough anyway. It's purple ... Well ... The connectors are the assembly and quality very seriously.

I took this cable out of curiosity more than anything else because I was not unhappy at all of my Rock Monster.

The cable is strong section but remains flexible enough anyway. It's purple ... Well ... The connectors are the assembly and quality very seriously.

When I plugged the guitar with the ultramafic I had a shock! I started looking for a problem in my gear, checked the amp settings, guitar ... The sound was ... amazing! Much more acute, harmonics like it came from a exiter.

Intrigued, I unplug the cable, I put the Monster. I immediately found my sound. The difference is very far from subtle, it's downright blatant.

Compared to the Monster lacks precision in the low and eats a lot of really sharp. After several hours of A / B test (without effects of course, just the guitar and amp) I notice that the lava is much more transparent and retains much less frequency. We must therefore do the adjustments on the amp. A little more bass as they are sharper and less messy and a bit less treble (I had unconsciously compensated for the lack of Monster).

There really is a vamp! As if I had a new guitar and new amp! The sound is much more three-dimensional harmonic richness and with a separation of grades magnified. If this cable was certainly adds nothing to the sound (it's a passive cable anyway) it has the merit of not eating the signal unlike these competitors I thought good so far ...

In short, I never thought I would do one day a review on a cable but the change is so radical that it was worth sharing. From now on I will be very careful before choosing my cables, even in the high end. The ultramafic is just amazing and really transmits the sound of my guitar to my amp. He had to try it to believe it.

I would do the selection of Lava again because they make great products and Mark Stoddard is passionate someone who has a great sense of service and advice. It has products for every budget and is committed to providing the best possible product according to the budget.
