Most musical instrument sound pick-ups, for example those in electric guitars, are comprised of high impedance circuits driven mainly by voltage, with very little electrical current flow. That is why handling noise (microphonics) can be a problem for guitar cables. Microphonic noise is caused by the minute voltage generated when a cable is flexed, stepped on, etc. Guitar cables must be designed to prevent this, so a conductive PVC layer is placed under the shield conductor to drain away this voltage.

Note: This conductive layer must be stripped back when wiring, or a partial short will result.

Comments about MOGAMI WIRE & CABLE CORP. Mogami W2524 High Impedance Transmission Bulk Guitar Cable:

The Mogami 2524 cable stock is the same cable used in ther "Gold" series instrument cables. Buying in bulk and soldering cables yourself is a great way to save money. I have found this cable to be ideal for guitar leads up to 18' with very minimal coloration. The capacitance is relatively low (40pF per foot), which is important for voltage-driven unbalanced signals. It is also very quiet, even with very high-gain settings; there is quite literally no handling noise! The shielding is excellent; no RF interference. This cable can be a bit stiff, and can coil on itself fairly easily in a performance, so proper wrapping and storage is a must to keep the cables from developing an adverse wrap memory. A previous reviewer commented that the DCΩ bewteen Tip and Sleeve was unacceptably low. I have not found this to be the case. The conductive PVC layer over the center core MUST be stripped back when making connections, or else cross-talk will occur. I have used Neutrik, Switchcraft, and other connectors on this cable stock and the T/S separation is superb.

Problematic

    Comments about MOGAMI WIRE & CABLE CORP. Mogami W2524 High Impedance Transmission Bulk Guitar Cable:

    I used this cable in a piece of commercial test equipment, assuming that the Mogami name and quality would ensure a reliable cable. I found that when this cable is pinched, like in a Neutrik X series plug strain relief, the resistance between the two conductors can drop catastrophically - like into the low 10's of k-Ohms or even lower. I don't know what's going on and don't have time to figure it out but it happened more than once. Beware!
