Canare is a Japanese manufacturer of professional audio cables that has a long established reputation for innovative products that offer long term value and durability. Amongst these innovations is their Oxygen Free Copper (OFC) line of cables that includes Canare GS-6 that is specially designed for connecting guitars, basses and keyboards using 1/4" plugs.
The centre conductor of Canare GS-6 Guitar Cable is made of 127 high quality OFC strands that are flexible and durable. The cable has an impressive proprietary double carbon plastic shield underneath the 92% coverage flexible copper braid shield which together eliminate microphonic handling noise and provide the cable great tensile strength to survive the twists and turns of pedalboards.. This high quality construction means the cable if more durable than ones employing a spiral shield which equates to better long term value for customers.
The cable has a capacitance of 160 pF/m which puts it towards the higher end of our Capacitance League Table. This makes the cable suitable for all general pedalboard applications and comparable to Mogami Gold and Belden 9778 but with the advantage of more rugged shielding and cable colour options.
This pack of Blue Canare GS-6 patch leads is terminated with high quality Hicon 1/4" pancake plugs with gold tips. The lower profile of these connectors, more so than Neutrik’s NP2RX and Switchcraft’s pancake plugs, helps to save space on packed pedalboards with a much better appearance as the connector will not protrude out significantly. The termination is made with silver solder for improved conductivity maximising signal and tone within your chain!
Cablesmiths patch cables are meticulously constructed with cable preparation done with a high precision automated tools for exact specifications and then completed with hand soldering by our expert technicians right here in Perth Western Australia.
