About

Prepare to experience the best tone ever from your Guitar, Bass, Violin

LightLead™ was used to record Coldplay's Grammy Award winning Album "Head Full Of Dreams". Rik Simpson (Coldplay's Producer) say's "It's a clever bit of kit"

LightLead™ 

  • Zero loading
  • Zero Capacitance
  • Zero Micro-phonics
  • 100% isolated from electrical shocks.
  • Consistent & reliable sound.

LightLead™ is built in the UK and hand finished to ensure quality and long life of the product. The design has been carefully thought through to allow changeable  LightLead™ cable lengths.

LightLead™ uses a single AA battery at each end giving approximately 18hrs of play time.

LightLead™ Avoids interference by not using any wire through its length, this also protects you from ground loops and other electrical shock hazards.

Ever wonder why your guitar, bass or violin sounds different depending on the length of the copper cable you use? The reason is sensitive instrument signals using regular electrical copper cables are subject to interference, ground loop problems which can drain and dramatically alter audio signals.

Capacitance is a sound killer.

This will not be the case using the LightLead - whatever length!

LightLead™ is the world’s first optical analogue, jack to jack, musical instrument cable offering musicians a lead with zero capacitance and loading, resulting in a more precise, perfect, dynamic and crystal clear sound.

Initially developed for Guitar, Bass and electric Violin, its fully patented technology, LightLead™ is ideal for guitarists, bass players, and violinists, in fact any electric stringed instrument where a lead is required and can be developed into every area of the audio industry including line level instruments, microphones, speakers, headphones, snakes and so much more!

 

We have been working on LightLead™ for over 10 years now. We have overcome many obstacles to bring LightLead™ to market. Its now time to make a change. There was no alternative for copper cables before LightLead™ and now you have a choice. Let us make a change, for the better.

Your contribution will bring this revolutionary technology to market: * LightLead™ you'll love the difference! * No More Ground or Earth Loops! * If you rely on instrument cables for your line of work, this is the only cable you will need as the optical fibre will never degrade!

Thank you.
LightLead™ Team.

Risks and challenges

Over time LightLead™ has found many obstacles but is now ready to put into production. This will be the first ever hand made LightLead™ run. And the first of many to come.
