Canare is a Japanese cable manufacturer of known for its range of professional audio cables that have a long established reputation for long term value and durability in professional circles. Amongst their standout innovations is the Canare GS-6, an Oxygen Free Copper (OFC) cable specially designed for connecting guitars, basses and keyboards using 1/4" plugs.
Canare GS-6 Guitar Cable has a centre conductor made of 127 high quality OFC strands that ensure the cable has good flexibility. The cable has an impressive proprietary double carbon plastic shield underneath the flexible copper braid shield that provides 92% coverage which together eliminate microphonic handling noise and provide the cable tensile strength to survive the twists and turns of any pedalboard configuration. This premium 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 at 12th place on our Capacitance League Table. This makes the cable suitable for all general pedalboard applications and is comparable to other good high capacitance cables such as Mogami Gold and Belden 9778 but with the advantage of more rugged shielding and cable colour options.
These Green Canare GS-6 patch leads are terminated with high quality German Hicon 1/4" pancake plugs with gold tips. The lower profile of these connectors helps to save space on packed pedalboards with a much better appearance as the connector is all black and will not protrude out significantly like Neutrik NP2RX. The termination is made with a high quality Kester silver solder for improved conductivity maximising signal and tone!
Cablesmiths patch cables are meticulously constructed with great attention to detail. Cable preparation is done with high precision automated tools for exact specifications and then hand soldered by our expert technicians right here in Perth Western Australia.
