Braided sleeving is the best product available for protecting your cables and it does not get any better than Techflex USA. Its superior quality applies across their whole range of general purpose, heavy duty and advanced sleeving products. Cablesmiths carry an extensive range of their high quality Techflex Flexo PET, FlexoTightweave and Flexo Flame Retardant range of expandable braid to offer our customers the most comprehensive design options for custom guitar and microphone cables.
Techflex is made from high quality 10 mil polyethylene terephthalate (PET) braided monofilament yarns. This material has a wide operating temperature range, is resistant to chemical degradation, UV radiation, and abrasion making it vastly superior to tweed braided cables and cheap non-expandable PET from China. The range of Techflex braided sleeving we stock is 1/8” sized offering a minimum expansion of 3/32” and a maximum expansion of 1/4”. This ensures a tight on the cable without slippage across our entire line of guitar cables except Sommer LLX Low Loss Guitar Cable.
Our customisable professional and boutique guitar and microphone cables are available in any length and so is Techflex braided sleeving when included as an add on in our custom cable builder app. The inclusion of Techflex to your custom guitar cable adds a unique look, additional durability, tangle and abrasion resistance. Our extensive connector, boot colour and heatshrink logo options mean a large number of customisation options are possible to go with your Techflex braid.
Techflex Purple braided sleeving works well with any of our black jacket guitar cable pictured here. For a more unique look we recommend you add violet Neutrik ¼” plug boots to your gold or nickel Neutrik connectors or add the all white NP2X-WT connectors.
