“Mark and his team at Analysis-Plus are doing something extraordinary for musicians everywhere. I am so grateful for their groundbreaking efforts in the way we listen to music and hear our instrument.
I have been an Analysis-Plus fan for years now. The first time I used their cable with my ukulele, I couldn’t believe my ears. It completely transformed the way my instrument sounded though the piezo pick-up. There was an incredibly smooth and rich quality to the tone that I had never heard before. All of the “electronic” nuances completely disappeared and I just heard the instrument.
Thank you to Analysis-Plus for inspiring artists all over the world by allowing us to feel that much closer to our instrument.” – Aloha, Jake
