HelioFused™ soldering: Provides bulletproof construction that can withstand the rigors of the stage, gig after gig.D'Addario's patented Geo-Tip™: Gives you the most secure connection possible. Ordinary cables tips don't allow for varying jack tolerances. But the D'Addario-designed patented Geo-Tip™ works with any jack to give you the most secure, trustworthy connection possible.Optimized capacitance: For purer signal and uncolored tone, we use a 22AWG oxygen-free copper conductor, USA-made audiophile quality wire tuned for optimized capacitance (28pF/ft), then shield it with 95% tinned copper braiding to eliminate handling noise and reject interference. Manufactured with only the finest materials and unmatched engineering methods, American Stage delivers a professional grade cable. The result is pure, natural tone that you can count on. D'Addario American Stage Series cables are designed to reproduce the natural tones of your instrument with zero interference. With audiophile quality wire, which is made in the USA, the low 28pF/ft capacitance is the sweet-spot for uncolored tone and the 22AWG oxygen-free copper conductor provides exceptional signal transfer. Full coverage comes from using 95% tinned copper braiding, eliminating handling noise and rejecting interference. Using only the finest materials, custom designs and precision USA manufacturing methods, American Stage delivers a professional performance cable. The result is pure, natural tone guaranteed for life.
