DescriptionMost musical instrument sound pick-ups such as those in electric guitars are comprised of high impedance circuits driven by voltage, in other words by very small electrical current flow. Therefore, so-called MICROPHONICS (noise) becomes a critical problem. (Microphonics means noise that is generated when the cable is moved and or tapped when the cabling circuit is a high impedance link.) Guitar cables must be counter-measured against this, so, a conductive PVC layer is placed under the shield co

I found a black shielded audio cable of roughly the same size, but I'd be hesitant to dissect the pickup for just that one thing. I bought a bunch of this for my experiment in trying to make a cello pickup. Mogami W2319 | Redco Audio ... more
