Premium Series instrument cables have a massive 18 gauge centre core with an incredible 127 strands of oxygen free copper. This ensures minimal loss and pristine sound quality. Polyethylene insulation offers low capacitance and ensures a flat frequency response to 50 kHz. A densely woven braided shield combined with a secondary polyvinyl carbon shield eliminates handling noise and allows the cable to handle severe flexing and abuse without failure. Neutrik X Series slim connectors with a black shell provide the ultimate connection.
