Two additional variants of our tried and tested microphone cable

As a supplement to the proven CPM FM microphone cable, Cordial can now offer you 2 further variants: the CPM FRMR with 2 right-angled XLR connectors and the CPM FRM with one straight and one right-angled female XLR connector. These angled connector variants are particularly suitable for space-saving rack cabling. As usual, all connectors come from the quality brand NEUTRIK® and feature a stylish black design. The cables are based on the legendary CMK 222 bulk cable, which excels in regards to its extremely high resilience, as well as by the fact that it is particularly easy to wind up and lay out without the risk of looping. The robust PVC jacket provides excellent protection against adverse external influences and the 0.22 mm² conductor area ensures the accustomed dynamic sound.

Partnership with Hal Leonard in North America

Cordial has entered into an exclusive distribution arrangement with US-based Hal Leonard’s MI Product Division. The announcement was made by François Rousies, Cordial CEO, and Brad Smith, VP of Hal Leonard MI division. Hal Leonard will be shipping orders in September.

Hal Leonard, headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is the world's largest publisher of music education materials / songbooks and a major distributor of music equipment and technology products around the world. The cooperation between Hal Leonard and Cordial only relates to their cooperation in North America.

“Cordial is a perfect fit for Hal Leonard,” says Smith. “Cables are part of every production. This fits with our mission to distribute items for every application and price point regardless of skill level. Retailers can get everything they need now from one source.”

“Cordial is passionate about its products and the Hal Leonard sales team has the same appreciation for quality and deep selection to serve every need,” adds Rousies. “They can take Cordial to resellers quickly, and our products are well positioned to complement all the other lines Hal Leonard offers, making premium cables a category now that will serve the dealers well. And their award-winning service fits perfectly with Cordial’s guiding business principle —integrity.”

Edition 25: CORDIAL’s new cable series as Limited Edition

On account of its 25th anniversary CORDIAL presents three new instrument and mic cables. The instrument cables CXI PP Edition 25 and CXI RP Edition 25 and the XLR cable CXM FM Edition 25 combine a quarter century of experience with trend-setting technology. Nice to look at due to their anthracite/copper-colored jacket and black/gold Neutrik® connectors. Nice to listen to as well due to their copper components (OFC), which are unequalled in the textile cable sector as to quantity and quality.

CPM FM: The original extended

The classic among the Cordial microphone cables has been expanded: The popular microphone cable CPM FM, based on the microphone bulk cable CMK 222, is now also available in the signal color orange. For longer distances, the CPM FM is now also available in 25m and 30m. And for those who need it even longer, Cordial has wound 50m, 75m or even 100m on proven SCHILL drums.

But of course the inner values have not changed: The conductor carea of 0.22 mm² ensures safe signal transmission in the studio, on stage or at home, the spiral shielding made of bare copper protects against external interference and the robust but flexible jacket ensures long durability and reliability.

The proven NEUTRIK XLR connectors in subtle black provide the ideal contrast to the colourful variety.

Cordial Range for live streaming and broadcasting

Since the culture-interested person cannot (or can only to a limited extent) attend events during the lockdown, the events are brought to him/her in the living room or, for example, at the drive-in cinema. There are many ideas and projects within the event industry - you don't let yourself get locked down. The key topics are live streams and broadcasts. Decisive for the success of broadcasting and live streaming is the best possible low-loss data transmission. Cordial is ready with a complete product range of copper Ethernet cables to support event technicians and event equipment rental companies for their productions. At times of the Corona retreat and, of course, beyond, when step-by-step, "normal" events continue. Further information is available here https://www.cordial-cables.com/en/live-streaming-and-broadcasting .

WLAN Rockstars helps musicians online

Together with our partners of delamar.de we present the Live Stream WLAN Rockstars every Wednesday in July 2020 (from 5 pm). The professional musician and online expert Julian Scarcella will guide you through the topics that musicians are dealing with in the online world today. Together with professional interview partners in interview recordings, he will provide assistance on topics such as "creating professional videos at home", "online jamming with other musicians", "online music lessons", and much more. 

Cordial supports the "Night of Light" project

The crisis-related difficulties of the event sector are obvious, but not enough is happening to maintain this industry - and therefore culture as such. In the night from June 22nd to June 23rd, a sign was set throughout the German-speaking countries. Through red lighting of countless buildings. Several 1000 companies, organizations, etc. were involved. Cordial was also present. However, this action can only have been the beginning. One will watch attentively what happens now.

"Music gives courage"

For all music-loving, creative, culture-interested people out there, who currently spend a lot of time indoors during the time of the Corona Retreat, Cordial has created "Music gives courage". Conversations with creative people on the subject of music, which should inform, entertain, offer added value (and in which everyone can participate - just contact us!!). Contributions, actions, contents, networks. If you take it all down a bit, this also means room for creativity and music. Music is important because music gives courage.
