Van Damme has been designing professional audio cables since 1987 that have gained a good reputation in high end studios and international touring acts.
This Pro Grade Classic XKE Guitar Cable offers a number of attractive attributes which we have turned into one of our best value for money products at Cablesmiths. The central conductor is made from a combination of three silver plated and four oxygen free copper strands which is a unique design that improves conductivity whilst maintaining flexibility. Two levels of shielding are used to protect the cable from interference, the first being a black conductive thermoplastic and then a copper spiral shield providing 80% coverage, all encased in a very flexible black PVC jacket.
This flexibility makes it very useful for pedal board patch cables as well, but for some there might be concern that it is a little too flexible. In such cases were extra durability is required we recommend adding Techflex braiding to the cable.
With a low capacitance of 90 pF/m Pro Grade Classic XKE Guitar Cable comes in 7th place on our Capacitance League Table, putting it right at the sweet spot of performance and price and a good mid-priced guitar cables for transparent transmission at longer length. An interesting fact for the value conscious is that its low capacitance exceeds that of some “premium” store bought cables that are over double the price.
Our Pro Grade Classic XKE Guitar Cables are economically priced without cutting any corners. Our standard package includes professional Neutrik PX Series gold contact connectors terminated using high quality Kester silver solder and includes a premium long life cable tie. Custom options for cable length, connector brands and configurations and Techflex braiding are available in our cable customiser app.
