A care package of Duelund DCA12GA tinned-copper tone wire arrived from Frederik today! Woo hoo!
I’ve really been looking forward to giving the new Duelund DCA12GA a listen after reading all of your positive comments about it!
As a reminder from the breaking news post announcing the new DCA12GA, it uses 65 strands of 0.25mm tinned-copper wires versus the 26 strands of 0.25mm tinned-copper strands used in the DCA16GA, and it uses the exact same oil-soaked and baked cotton dielectric.
In the photo above you can see the DCA20GA, DCA16GA, and DCA12GA, left to right. While you can tell that the DCA12GA is much bigger than the DCA16GA, it’s hard to appreciate how much bigger it is until you hold it in your hand – it is one substantial wire!
The new DCA12GA is one heavy duty wire!
Parts ConneXion will have exclusive distribution of the DCA12GA for the first few months after its release.
Parts ConneXion is offering the DCA12GA at a special introductory pricing of $16.99/meter, which after the exclusivity period will go to $19.50/meter. The MSRP Retail List Price of the DCA12GA is $22.95/meter.
I’ll be reporting back on my initial listening impressions in the near future, with more detailed impressions over the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
As always, thanks for stopping by, and may the tone be with you!
