A specially designed Oxygen Free Copper 18 AWG cable for connecting Guitar/Bass or Keyboards to amps, mixers, effects pedals and all outboard signal processing gear. Low capacitance and low series resistance provides improved frequency response (flat to 50kHz). A bright, ringing characteristic sound is preserved, even when using HI-Z guitar pickups with long cable runs. The proprietary double Carbon/Braid Copper shield construction eliminates micro-phonic handling noise, especially on stage where amps are often set at maximum volume levels. Also highly recommended for Amp Head to Speaker Cabinet leads. Note: Connectors not included Important Wiring Note: Canare GS-4 and GS-6 utilize a specially designed Conductive Carbon Plastic Shield to protect against undesirable microphonic handling noise. This inner sleeve can cause a short circuit if allowed to come in contact with the OFC center conductor. Please be very careful when stripping cable and remove this material from exposed insulation before soldering.
