ClearTone's new RetroTone™ cables bring
'early era' warmth back to electric guitar!

Early guitar tones sounded a little different. But they came from bright, new instruments - just like new guitars sound today! Guitarists who use those same classic guitars and amps now, don't always seem to nail 'that' warmer vintage tone... it's quite often a little 'ice-picky'. *

Therefore, those old tones must have been caused by something outside the amp and guitar. So what has changed since then? Instrument cables!

What got us thinking?
"Some time ago ClearTone™ inherited a box of old guitar cables found in the loft of a local player who had sadly passed on. Recognising a few brand names that had not been in the shops for many years, we tried them with a standard '54 RI Japanese Strat®. Wow, we were staggered by how much the tone was authoritative but not piercing or harsh. It was like hearing Hank and many other old rockers playing live all those years ago!

After many listening hours alternating between those 'oldies' and modern high definition (HD) cables... we set up a technical study program. The outcome is we have developed cables that ‘tune’ your pickups' tone just like those cables did back in the good old days. The result is ClearTone's new RetroTone™ calibrated guitar cables."

The Secret Of Great Tone... 'Benficial Defects' - Due to today's 'ad man' speak and guitar forum hype, it is now a strongly held misbelief that only superior performance components produce the best tones; and has led to the fact that, in general, modern cables are much more highly accurate! For some, this can have a detrimental tonal result. Fact! Top performance components are NOT what made those rich 'early days' guitar tones!

Guitar amp and speaker designers universally agree, that great tone is created by a collection of 'beneficial defects' within our gear... so 'perfect' equipment can lead to seriously ugly tone! Truly, great tone is the art of understanding and perfecting the affects of 'beneficial defects.'

RetroTone™ cables give you the ideal warmth of yesteryear, without the fall-apart and noise hang-ups of cables from that period! Of course, Neutrik jacks are used as standard... they're the hallmark of high-end cables. And, in true ClearTone™ tradition, we make them to sell at an affordable price!

RetroTone™ cables come in three lengths: 3, 4½ and 6 metres which, unlike regular cables, are calibrated to have consistent tone regardless of length. Choose between Straight, Angled, Standard or SILENT jack plugs in virtually any combination!

RetroTone™ cables = NO plinky-plonky treble tones!
100% 'old school' tone coupled with modern durability!

*RetroTone Cables...
The Technical Stuff!

It has been long known that guitars like Strats© and Tellies©, because of their single coil pickups with extended HF output, can cause unpleasent fizzy edginess in the distorted tone of many guitar amps - valve or solid state. This is why guitars with humbuckers generally create a smoother more satisfying distortion tone.

RetroTone™ cables are uniquely designed to help prevent that fizz - bringing a much smoother overall tone without the loss of 'balls!' Making single coil pickups tonally much richer.

RetroTone™ cables also drastically reduce the 'metallic' edge often encountered on clean tones - particularly with Strat© type guitars!

RetroTone™ cables are a 'win-win' solution to annoying tonal problems. Helping musicians achieve the classic tones of yesteryear!
