"I get definition, dimensionality and power that never even makes the clip indicator on the amp light up."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Steven Flygare (Salt Lake City, UT USA) July 2011
Dear Michael, I was excited to get a chance to talk to you about the MusicCord-PRO power cable that I have been using for the past 2-3 years. I am a jazz guitarist in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have been gigging around here for over 34 years.
I use your cable with an AER Compact 60 and a Gibson L-5 , sometimes a CS-356. Getting a great jazz guitar tone is what I try to achieve. I don't use any pedals or effects other than a little reverb from the amp. There is no distortion or gain boosting involved,just the guitar and amp and cable. Most guitarists would not be able to get what they're after like this but I am not interested in electronic gadgetry at all-- just straight up guitar tone. I have played a regular Friday night gig for the past 14 years along with clubs, ski resorts,and restaurants.
Since I got the MusicCord-PRO I have never used the stock cord except for one time - for logistical reasons having to due with an awkward set-up. Let me tell you: I could not plug in the MusicCord-PRO fast enough! The difference in sound quality was shocking. The bottom end was flabby and hard to control [in the house system] the midrange, which is crucial to jazz guitar tone, was like a wet noodle and the top end was thin and unmusical. Some further observations about what your cable does: incredible power or "headroom" to project or throw the sound even in large outdoor spaces, tight rich bass response which hinders feedback, thick warm smooth midrange, top end that is never harsh. I get definition, dimensionality and power that never even makes the clip indicator on the amp light up.
Another thing is the sustain qualities that occur that is unlike anything I have experienced. Single notes can have singing tone that is very hornlike. Chords ring and sound for a very long time with accuracy and clarity. The ability to articulate fast single note lines and complex chord passages is unsurpassed. I hope I haven't gone on too long even though I am sure I have left something out. Thank you for making my gig life a lot more enjoyable and musically more rewarding!
"It's easy now to articulate the notes the way a trumpeter would."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Eric Meyer (Crestline, CA USA) May 2011
I just tried your cord with my solid state Acoustic Image Clarus II head, archtop guitar. Klotz cable into the amp It's amazing, there is absolutely no line noise even when everything is at 10
At high volumes the guitar note stays "round", no splattering of notes... treble and bass notes are tight (sometimes on archtops the treble gets away from you....now I turn my guitar treble on high and can control the tone with my fret hand.....chords are the same way and you can hear every note in the chord...great depth too...its easy now to articulate the notes the way a trumpeter would.
I'm sold and can hardly wait to hear it after the break in period.
Yes - I used the Acoustic Image at rehearsal yesterday....ran it at about 65% power and after 3 hours. There was no warmth or heat emanating from the amp...stone cold. Before, after 30 minutes the amp would get warm at 30% power.
I attached the Music Pro cord to my twin reverb amp.....it has the same affect as it did on my Acoustic Image amp in terms of great tone, depth and headroom, note roundness, etc. but it also is running 30% cooler.....the amp head is barely warm after 1 hour of playing with volume at 6...in fact the power tubes are warm -hot and not ho-hot.....before the MusicCord-PRO cord if you touched a power tube you could get a blister from the heat.
|"the difference was definitely more dramatic than I was expecting"
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Mike Hall (Denver, CO USA) April 2011
Listening to my amp with the MusicCord-PRO, I felt like I had taken taken cotton out of my ears I didn't know existed...the difference was definitely more dramatic than I was expecting.
I had no idea what an improvement "just the power chord" could facilitate.
|"It is one best improvement value to any audiophile system or pro stage gear."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Jules Duncan (Edmonton, AB Canada) January 2011
Thank you for the refund. As for the product I will be buying more cable from you. It is the one best improvement value to any audiophile system or pro stage gear. I have both. I wish I knew what a difference these cables would make before I started to invest in new gear to improve my sound.
I have a small practice amp. About a 40 watt unit "SWR" and even with it the bass is much tighter and quicker. You can add me to the long term client list , for sure. Thank you again.
|"I noticed increased definition and presence with the MusicCord-PRO power cords."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Mike Lamontia ( Tallahassee, FL USA) January 2011
I am very happy with my purchase of two MusicCord-PRO power cords for my guitar rig. One for my Fractal Axe-Fx and the other for my Mesa Engineering 2:100 tube power amp. I noticed increased definition and presence with the ESP power cords. Next purchase will be MusicCord power cords for my studio monitors. Great product, unfortunately it appears I am forming an addiction to the MusicCord power cords. Keep up the good work.
|"I can only say "WOW""
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Artell Johnson (The Colony, TX USA) January 2011
Prior to my purchase of the Music Cord Pro I did use the generic cord that came with my high end combo amp and I have had that amp for ten glorious years and it has always given me a good sound and with the addition of my new five string bass guitar I thought I was content with all of my equipment. Presently I'm in a Alternative/Rock band and I'm always trying to get the perfect sound from my equipment while playing with two guitarist.
I read an article a few years back claiming of this power cord that cost $159 would give you the great sound that you have always wanted from your instrument. I was floored on the cost but still very interested in what it could do for my sound. I keep seeings ads here and there talking about this power cord so I finally decided to purchase one. The staff at Essential Sound Products were very helpful and very cool because I realized I had given them the wrong spec on the cord when receiving it and I spoke to Michael Griffin a customer service rep and he didn't even blink an eye and sent me out the correct cord and just asked me to send the incorrect one back in the same box it came in along with the pre-paid packing slip that he had provided. It has been such a long time that I have been given great customer service over the phone.
Getting back to the performance of the Music Cord Pro. I can only say "WOW" I knew I had good equipment but now I know that I have "Great Equipment". The entire band noticed the sound difference in my amp and the ever presence attack of my bass guitar throughout the entire practice session. I think I might have convinced one of the guitarist in the band to get one as well...Thanks Essential Sound Products... You Guys Rock!!!!!!!
|"it was like I had unblocked my ears, and hearing my bass through a new Rig!"
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Leslie King (Thurmaston, Great Britain) November 2010
I'm am a bass player in based in England, I did several test with the MusicCord-PRO power cable against the standard power cable, and I must say that I could hear the harmonic quality and clarity in my notes with the MusicCord-PRO power cable, it was like I had unblocked my ears, and hearing my bass through a new Rig! Thank you
|"This product has been met with a lot of skepticism on forums like talkbass.com, but I think if people tried it they would appreciate the difference."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Robin Ruscio (Denver, CO USA) October 2010
I'm pretty impressed with your cable. I use an Epifani 3x10 with a UL head, and a Acoustic Image Clarus head w/ an EA wizzy 112 for my URB. I was able to notice a discernible difference in the sound quality right away on both my acoustic and electric basses, and even on gigs with a lot of background noise. Better low end and pitch clarity, which is great for the upright especially.
This product has been met with a lot of skepticism on forums like talkbass.com, but I think if people tried it they would appreciate the difference. It was pricey, but given that I'm playing on a $30K bass through a $1k amp, it seems like a proportionally good deal to improve my tone. I think that adding this cable is giving me the best sound I've ever had (on top of a sound I was very pleased with!)
I did have one question- does plugging into a multi-reel or power strip that's plugged into the wall outlet diminish the benefit of using your cable?
|"I don't know how your power cables do what they do but I would never be able to play my rig without one now."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Milton Darides (Boston, MA USA) September 2010
I cant believe the difference the MusicCord Pro power cable has made with my guitar rig. Lows are tight and percussive, mids have come alive and the highs are smooth. I don't know how your power cables do what they do but I would never be able to play my rig without one now.
|"I decided to buy in the future MusicCord Pro for all my rack system"
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Steve Lallo (Turin, Italy) August 2010
WHEN I CONNECTED FOR THE FIRST TIME .. MusicCord Pro woohhh the volume of my custom preamps. and increased and downs have become more 'set and present'. So I decided to buy in the future MusicCord Pro for all my rack system (tube line mixer, tc 2290, power amp., Swithcher and Line6 G90 wireless relay system).
Special thanks to Mr. Michael G. that was always with me and for his availability.
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Will Byrd (Glenside, PA USA) July 2010
Fantastic product, amp sounded great with new power chord, clean, quiet harmonious compression!
|"I'll be back for more"
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Daniel T. Fischlin (Guelph, ON Canada) June 2010
I'm super pleased with the product--very much appreciate the service. I'll be back for more
|"Could not be more happier with what these pro power cords have done for my sound."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Douglas Spahni ( Cincinnati, OH USA) June 2010
Could not be more happier with what these pro power cords have done for my sound. The more i use them the better it get. Just now starting to open up. More clear headroom with the amp and my D.I. has never sounded better. Will be buying your pro power distributor soon. Thanks again
|"my MusicCord-PRO power cord was a trial purchase initially."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Stan Hamrick ( Pismo Beach, CA USA) May 2010
Yes, my MusicCord-PRO power cord was a trial purchase initially. I received it 3 days before a big performance, allowing me to try it out under live stage conditions. Wow! What a boost in sound. It was fat and filling, bringing many compliments and inquiry about my equipment. The other band members gave great compliments as well. So, am I satisfied? Absolutely! I will use it at all performances in the future.
|"I'm not sure how to quantify the difference, but it's there especially when you boost volume/power."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Cottrell Webster (Batavia, IL USA) April 2010
I'm using the cable as a power cord for a TechAmp Puma 1000 bass amplifier in a bass guitar rig. Compared to the stock power cable of the amp the MusicCord-Pro is definitely more open. I'm not sure how to quantify the difference, but it's there especially when you boost volume/power. I am very happy with the purchase as I have elimated my old power strip so the MusiCord-PRO saves me from bringing extra gear.
|"Well worth the expense."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Ken Mann (Calgary, AB Canada) March 2010
OMG, LOL, WOW, WTF, Etc.
The MusicCord-PRO power cable has added exactly what I needed to my Motion Sound KP500. I did not quite have the bass response and clarity that I was looking for in a keyboard amp but it was very close. The cable made the difference. An amazing, unexpected and wonderful thing happened when I used to MusicCord-PRO power cord. The added bass response, clarity and accuracy that was added made the sound that was not quite perfect suddenly perfect to my ears. The lounge lizard, pianoteq and native Instruments B4 alongs with sample libraries I use sound incredibly accurate.
The build quality is outstanding, It will probably outlive the pyramids!
Well worth the expense.
|"From shopping around, I believe that your product is very well made and fairly priced. The performance is outstanding."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Jules Duncan (Edmonton, AB Canada), February 2010
Yes I did purchase three of your power PRO cords and I'm very satisfied. From shopping around, I believe that your product is very well made and fairly priced. The performance is outstanding. Here is the message that I sent back this first day I got them and I still feel the same way:
"They have arrived and yes big difference. Very stiff...took some work to get them in but all worth it. I'm using them with Fatman Mothership. And I can notice the change instantly. I will have to order a few more for my bass rig for sure.
Great service, great product. Thank you again for bringing me closer to my dream sound."
|"As Clint Eastwood would say "you made my day"."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Leroy Richardson (Bermuda) December 2009
"WOW". What a difference a day (oops) your power cord made. My bass amp has jumped from a whimper to a whopper.
Playing my Roscoe Bass which is "my house of tone" this cord has enhanced my tone and power even more.
Thanks Essential Sound Products for creating a fantastic product. As Clint Eastwood would say "you made my day".
|"there was a profound difference in tone: fuller, punchier lows, cleaner top-end, and a general volume boost."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Ken Simonds (Winston-Salem, NC USA) November 2009
I am very impressed with your MusicCord Pro Power Cord. Upon opening the box I was immediately taken with the stout, professional construction of the Cord, and the handy carry bag.
I work in a music store and first tested it with an Ampeg B4R Pro Head & Mesa 4x10 Cab. I compared it with the stock cord and there was a profound difference in tone: fuller, punchier lows, cleaner top-end, and a general volume boost. My co-worker agreed there was no mistaking the improvement.
I then took the Cord home to try in my Epifani UL-500 2x10 combo and the results were the same. A week later I took this combo out to a gig, playing my Ken Lawrence Associate 5 and Roscoe SKB-3006 fretless, and was even more thrilled with the results! I was even stuck to the right side of my rig, almost beside it (as gig spaces frequently offer), and noticed that the improved response allowed me to hear every note for the entire night.
Thanks for manufacturing a quality product that delivers the goods for a tone fanatic like myself!
|"One of the smartest investments for my acoustic guitar sound made to date!"
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Lemuel Genovese (Holmen, WI USA) November 2009
The Pro (MusicCord-PRO) Cord works wonders in older venues with questionable wiring and antique tube lighting! One of the smartest investments for my acoustic guitar sound made to date!
|"a much needed product that is usually overlooked in the area of guitar tone."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Michael Luna (Sacramento, CA USA) November 2009
Awesome product. I noticed an improvement in the musicality and overall fuller tone immediately with the MusicCord-PRO cable . It has improved the sound on all of my guitar amps. It is so good that I already bought two more.
Thank you for making a much needed product that is usually overlooked in the area of guitar tone. Thanks!
|"I will gladly let anyone know what a fantastic product you have and that it merits the investment."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Oscar Urchyo (Dale City, CA USA) August 2009
I got to try out my new power cable yesterday - All I can say is WOW!!! I'd been thinking for quite sometime that something was wrong with my David Eden WT800C 1000 watt hybrid amp head for several months now. It tended to sound different in different locations (and I'm not referring to the acoustics of the room); I had never stopped to think that my power supply may have had anything to do with it. I thought perhaps it was due to the wear and tear of gigging/touring, the fact that it's been knocked over at least once in the past 2 years since I got it, the fact that I think my fan stopped working, maybe the tube in the preamp needed replacing, etc, etc.
In a nutshell - it was my power cable.... when I hooked yours up to my head - I could hear IMMEDIATELY the difference in the quality of my tone and presence. It virtually sounded as though I had turned my gain from 3 to 5 "just like that"!!! I was pushing significantly more db's and the SPL was considerably improved. Everyone noticed the change - not right away, but by the end of two sets - everyone knew there was a change (and one person had even said to me when I first showed it to them "are you sure that will make any difference?"
From here on out I am a proud owner of your MusicCord-PRO Power Cord, 2-meters. I will gladly let anyone know what a fantastic product you have and that it merits the investment.
|"I am very pleased with my power cable"
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Lester Johnson (Indianapolis, IN USA) August 2009
I just wanted to tell you that I am very pleased with my power cable(C-19 type). My amp (Fender 800 PRO) bass amp sounds better than ever with tighter lows and a more focused sound.
Thanks! for a great high quality product. I'll be ordering a (C-13 type) soon! ....Peace!
Update October 18, 2009 - It (C-19) is SUPER ! I wish every product was as well made as yours! My Fender 800 PRO is sounding better and better each week! EQ is no longer needed! just minor tweaks (+or- 2 db). GREAT PRODUCT.
Are you sure it's not VOODOO!
|"For once in my life, I made a SOUND investment."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Kevin Reed (Westland, MI USA)July 2009
I'm extremely happy with my purchase. I had a gig the following weekend after receiving the Music Cord Pro cord. I play through an Ampeg SVT-6 PRO bass amp and I could tell a profound difference in my sound. Everything was tighter with a pronounced clarity in tone. For once in my life, I made a SOUND investment. Thank You.
|"I will never have another bass rig without this power cord."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Brandon Murray (Fairland, IN USA) March 2009
I will never have another bass rig without this power cord. Its amazing.
|"Are you kidding, I am doing back flips."
Review of MusicCord-PRO by Ron Thompson (San Antonio, TX USA) February 2009
Are you kidding, I am doing back flips. You should hear it through my Two Rock. The amp already sounds totally over the top and I couldn't imagine that it could sound any better but it does. It loves the Fuchs ODS 30 watter as well.......my bass player is going to get one.......thank you for your awesome product.........Ron Thompson of the Revelators..........
