Thorough wire polishing technology

EMOTIONAL LEAD was created using thorough polishing techniques. The wire surface, where solder is applied, is processed to a mirror finish using a variety of polishing techniques to match material of the wire, pushing the surface to the limit. The layer of solder alloy is controlled to ideal proportions to achieve the intended sound. Tamahagane blades, which were used for Japanese swords, are used for the polishing.

Emotional Lead Mellow AR-LW-EMOM1

What we pursued was the “glossiness” and “Mellow” of the sound.

In other words, how to reproduce a sensual sound? That is what we focused on with this shell lead wire.

The first thing we want you to hear is the vocal. The sensual voice is sure to draw you in. You will also be surprised by the bewitching luster of stringed instruments and the penetrating resonance of the piano.

Emotional Lead Soul AR-LW-EMOS1

This is a shell lead wire that selfishly tries to have both “power” and ” sensitivity” of sound in its hands.
