This is the EWI GBNC-SILENT premium instrument cable featuring a straight 1/4" Neutrik silentPLUG® on one end and a straight 1/4" Neutrik NP2X-BAG on the other.
The Neutrik silentPLUG® is a special version TS plug with an integrated switch that automatically mutes (shorts) a guitar cable to avoid annoying pops and squeals when hot swapping guitars. The integrated silent switch is based on the REED technology and guarantees a lifetime beyond 10,000 mating cycles.
The EWI premium PCS-2560 cable is designed to meet the needs of the most demanding professional applications. These touring grade cables are constructed with 98% coverage tinned copper braided shield which is extremely effective at eliminating induced EMI (electromagnetic interference) noise. The 99% purity of the copper conductors deliver clean signal transfer without compromise. The Super Flexible Innocuous Neoprene PVC (SFIN PVC) jacket and conductor insulators are tough, remain flexible over a wide temperature range, minimize tangling problems, and are low in handling noise.
This co-axial style cable is constructed with a twisted 60 strand count, 22AWG internal conductor and tinned copper braided shield outer conductor. An extra layer of noise reducing conductive carbon extrusion provides additional shielding and aids in reducing handling noise.
The ends are hand assembled and soldered on the cable here at Audiopile in the USA.
This is truly a premium cable which is suitable for mission critical high performance professional applications.
