HHB rolls out Mogami cable19 May 2011
HHB has been appointed exclusive distributor of Mogami cable in the UK and Ireland, and has decided to donate 10% of all its sales of the Japanese-made products to the Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal, writes David Fox.
Used by virtually every major recording facility, Mogami’s product range encompasses microphone, speaker, guitar, coaxial, video and digital interfacing cables, along with analogue and digital snakes.
Their design and manufacture takes place under the watchful eye of the company’s founder at Mogami’s plant in Nagano, Japan, where the emphasis is on quality and durability, ultra-low loss signal transfer and very low noise.
The company’s Cat5 product, which HHB believes is ideal for OB use, lies very flat on the ground and can withstand being run over by a truck without loss of bandwidth, while Mogami’s commitment to developing the optimum cable for each application is shown it its Polar Flex, a microphone cable that retains its flexibility down to minus 40º centigrade, making it ideal for polar film-makers.
“Any audio or video recording or production system is only as good as its weakest link and Mogami ensures that it isn’t going to be the cabling that lets you down. From the tiniest lavalier microphone cable to a heavy duty digital snake, every Mogami cable is designed and manufactured to perform at the highest levels," stated HHB’s Mogami Product Specialist, Matthew Fletcher (pictured with HHB’s first shipment from Japan).
HHB promises that its sales of Mogami cable will benefit victims of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan. “10% of the value of our Mogami sales between now and the IBC Show in September will be donated to the Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal,” said HHB’s Managing Director, Ian Jones. “Our initial meetings with Mogami took place shortly before this devastating natural disaster and, although Mogami was not directly affected, it seems to us an ideal way to help our many friends and industry colleagues in Japan.”
A large selection of Mogami cable is now in stock now at HHB, including the popular 2534 reference standard NEGLEX quad high definition mic cable, 2524 guitar cable and 2972/3082 speaker cables.
HHB has a specialist division, Scrub, to cater for the television and film post production industry from premises in London’s Soho.
