    19.7 foot (6 meter) silver-plated, solid copper core, angled TS-TS shielded instrument cable

    The multi-purpose sound conductor for transmission of unbalanced signals. Whether live on stage or in the recording studio, this is the perfect cable for all electrically amplified musical instruments such as electrical guitar, bass, E-piano or keyboards. Also great for acoustic instruments with pickup systems or as a patch cable.

    • single solid core conductors for signal and ground
    • silver-plated, oxygen-free copper conductors
    • pigment and plasticizer-free high purity polymers
    • shielded
    • optimally protected against microphonics

    VOVOX phone plug
    Our established goal is the perfect transmission of sound signals. To achieve this aim, the cable, but also the connectors, must fulfill our requirements. As most phone plugs available on the market are designed with only their mechanical properties in mind, we have developed our own VOVOX phone plugs: 1/4" phone plugs offering both first class functionality and first class sound.
    Straight or angled 1/4" phone plugs?
    Especially in the case of instrument cables, we suggest carefully choosing the kind of connector that suits you best: Using a 90 degree right angle plug will often reduce the mechanical stress on the instrument as well as on the cable. Like this it contributes to longer service life of both, cable and jack.

    Are gold-plated contacts always the better choice?
    The outstanding properties of gold are undisputed. As it does not corrode, it durably protects contacts from oxidation. In the case of connectors that are rarely removed, this property is an important criterion. But the situation is different in regards to instrument cables. Here, cables are inserted and removed very often. As a consequence, corrosion products are is mechanically removed. Furthermore, the benefit of gold plated contacts is very limited unless both plug and jack are plated. However, in reality, one scarcely encounters gold plated jacks.

    Practical tests have proven that - if sound quality is the main criteria - gold doesn't necessarily offer the best results. As a consequence of several blindfolded tests, our choice is nickel-plated contacts. In case we have to decide between a beautiful look and beautiful sound, our choice is clear. No gold plated contacts.

    Cable Lengths
    Though we do like to sell long cables, shorter ones offer better sound quality! Many properties of cables are directly linked to their length. As a result, shorter cables cause less sound alteration. In the case of instrument cables the effect is especially noticeable.

    Cable Direction
    To attain the optimal result, it is worth taking care to connect VOVOX sound conductors correctly aligned: Connect the end of the cable marked with the VOVOX label to the signal receiver (e.g. the amp). VovoX.
