Team Head Office Straubenhardt

Musicians became cable experts...

Founded in 1999 out of necessity, we can now look back on more than 25 years of company history.
We develop, produce, and distribute first-class quality cables and connection components, as well as high-quality products for the audio, video, broadcast, studio and media technology sectors. 
A human, friendly, competent, and uncomplicated interaction with each other in the spirit of our company philosophy ‘simply good vibes’ is very important to us.
