Canare GS-6 Instrument cable is commonly used electronic instruments, hi-fi interconnects, test probes, audio patch cords and amp to cabinet leads. This cable features an extremely flexible PE outer jacket resist cracking and tears even in sub-zero environments. Internally the dual shield allows for its maximum flexibility and reduced handling noise. The conductor is made from 18 AWG high stranded count (127 Strands of copper) bare copper. This cable is designed for the enthusiasts in mind.

    PROS: The product works really well; Super fast
    CONS: None specified
    I bought about 25 feet of this to make custom interconnects for my stereo system. I paired it with some relatively inexpensive gold-plated brass Amphenol RCA connectors and silver solder. This cable is hard to strip properly because of the tightly braided shield, but solders well. Sound quality is absolutely superb. I have my entire system connected with it, including the run from my turntable to preamp, where even a small resistance would likely cause noise and distortion, and it's totally and completely silent. There isn't a trace of thermal noise (hiss) or hum from uneven grounding. I also like that the vinyl jacket and dieletric are a sensible size. With an outside cable diameter of around 1/4" it's very pliant and flexible. It's a nice change from audiophile cables, many of which are as easy to handle as a frozen garden hose.

Q: What is Star Quad? Why use Star Quad?

A: Star Quad obtains its name from the 4-conductor style construction that minimizes the “loop area” between twists of the conductors. This “double balanced” pairing, reduces susceptibility to electromagnetically induced noise. The improvement in noise rejection is so noticeable that even SCR dimmer noise (stage lighting consoles) is reduced to less than 1/10 the level found in other 2-conductor microphone cables.

Star Quad is designed for use with microphones but is also excellent for all line-level signals (e.g. mixer to power amps). The 4-conductor Star Quad arrangement cancels electromagnetically induced noise from SCR dimmer packs, fluorescent lighting ballasts and AC power transformers. Handling noise is prevented by use of cotton filler material. Excellent frequency response is maintained due to special irradiated polyethylene insulation which provides a low capacitance dielectric.

The signal generated by a microphone during quiet periods can be very low in level, -70dB to -120dB (0.3 millivolts to 1 microvolt). The cable that must carry this signal to the mixer is very sensitive to Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) and electrostatic coupling of hum and noise. Mechanical vibration, bending, flexing (handling noise) and ambient temperature fluctuations can cause detrimental capacitance changes within the microphone cable. Canare Cables are carefully designed and manufactured to very close tolerances using the highest quality materials available so that low level microphone circuits will not be affected by these outside disturbances.

Q: What is Capacitance?

A: Capacitance is the ability to store an electric charge.

Q: Why should I use Low Capacitance Cables?

A: Lower cable capacitance allows more of the natural “brightness,” “presence,” or “bite” of an instrument to reach the amp, which in turn allows the treble controls to be run lower, reducing hiss and other unwanted noise. High-frequency loss from the cable gradually becomes audible and objectionable depending on the source, the amplification and other circumstances.

Q: What does AWG stand for?

A: AWG is the gauge size and denotes the thickness of the cable. The lower the gauge of the cable, the thicker the cable will be. AWG stands for "American Wire Gauge" and is a standardized wire gauge system used throughout the industry.
