On November 10, 2009, I wrote an article — The Evidence Audio Cables Review — in Scientific Aesthetic and, to this day, that review is still one of the most read posts on that Boles Blogs Network blog! There’s a reason for the popularity. Tony Farinella at Evidence Audio makes outstanding audio and guitar cables.
When I recently reviewed my new Jimmy Bruno guitar — crafted by expert luthier Roger Sadowsky — I lamented the fact that the guitar pretty much required a right-angle guitar cable and that I didn’t have one, even though I have mounds of really keen Evidence Audio cables I’d purchased in the past.
In the comments stream for my guitar review, Roger Sadowsky offered the following thought:
Tony Farinella at Evidence is a great guy. Why not ask him if you could send him some of your cables and have a right angle plug added to one end? Tell him I sent you!
Shazam! Roger was right!
As I reflected on my original Evidence audio review in 2009, I remembered Tony wrote a kind note in email and offered to send me his — at that time — “in development” Forte cable for review, with no strings attached, when the cable actually went public.
I looked up his original offer and wrote Tony a note and pointed him to the commentary thread with Roger and, last week, a beautiful right-angle Evidence Audio Forte cable arrived in the mail!
