By the guitarists tossing the cables around. That's why this of all cables must be particularly tread resistant and have an elaborate construction. At first musicians tend to spend big money until they finally have to realize exasperatedly that the newly purchased low-cost cable may at best be used as an average short-wave receiver or even brings the overall sound image of the high-priced instrument to crumble. We have refrained from cheapo products and offer a top-quality cable at a fair price. The SC-Spirit has a thick insulation between wire and screen. This improves the capacitive values and ensures a loss-free reproduction of the highs even with longer cables. To avoid crackling and hum interferences, we use a special conductive carbon screen and a braided Cu shield. Please make sure when soldering that the carbon screen does not make any contact with the inner conductor. Your audience will be amazed at the sound of this cable!
