RHC, manufacturer and supplier of a wide array of audio, video and lighting equipment, announces the availability of its RAT FX RAT Tail distortion cable,  RapcoHorizon Volume Control Cable (V-Cable) and its ProCo Sound Dante-compatible Drop Snake Boxes and Wall Plates. The company will present these latest product offerings at Winter NAMM 2019 (RHC Booth #11510).

“We are excited to announce the official global availability of these products, which are ideal for the MI and live sound markets,” says Darius Seabaugh, vice president of marketing for RHC. “Our brands are some of the most recognized in the industry, and we pride ourselves on continually providing the highest quality products. We’re confident that musicians and engineers will recognize the benefits of all four of these solutions.”

Built using the same clipping diodes that drive Vintage RAT pedals’ signature distortion tones, the new RAT Tail distortion cable offers guitarists and bassists an alternative solution for achieving audio effects. Musicians can shift seamlessly between settings with the connector’s easily accessible dial and built-in, directly selectable distortion circuitry. The RAT Tail distortion cable comes equipped with three settings, including true bypass, distortion overdrive with unity gain and distortion overdrive (+3dB gain).

The updated RapcoHorizon Volume Control Cable (V-Cable) is perfectly suited for acoustic and electric instruments built without tone or volume knobs, and its improved design enhances its existing strengths. The V-cable also provides performers with the ability to adjust their own volume directly and it comes equipped with built-in ‘off’ position, which allows for a complete system mute on any instrument. With a “pop-free” guarantee, players can interchange instruments without worrying about unplugging sounds that can infringe on their performances. A 500K Ohm version ensures compatibility with virtually any pickup configuration on the market.

The company’s latest AV integration offerings include two durable enclosure options for its Dante Interface hardware, the ProCo Dante-compatible Drop Snake Boxes and Wall Plates. Both chassis options offer the exact same functionality with differing rugged aluminum extrusion enclosures, for portable, handheld transport or easy installation into established pro AV and staging environments. Three configurations of two to four Neutrik analog XLRF inputs and/or XLRM outputs are available for each enclosure, along with one Neutrik EtherCon Dante I/O jack. Each module is also designed with LED indicators, which can be configured to display the status of the user’s Dante ecosystem.
