Instrument & Patch Cable Specifications

SC-SPIRIT LLX "LOW LOSS" Instrument Cable manufactured by Sommer Cable in Germany

Making the impossible come true…

Sommer Cable created a new guitar cable with extremely low capacitance and also breathtaking flexibility. They developed an insulation which ensures super low values by means of a gas-injected foaming – this is not an easy job, but well within the bounds of possibility for a professional cable maker. However, protecting this fragile insulation also against motion, creasing or twisting, is indeed a true challenge.

With the SC-SPIRIT LLX "LOW LOSS" Sommer cable have fallen back on the same insulation design as it is used in professional HD-SD video cables. For extra stability of the inner construction they use an optimised concentrical litz stranding and a special insulation curing on the surface. For the outer jacket they have applied a rubber-like soft PVC jacket, which is highly flexible, extremely compact, stretches minimally and protects the whole inner structure from exterior influences.

Due to its low capacitance and its very special construction the SC-SPIRIT LLX "LOW LOSS" is one of the world’s ultra-low loss guitar cables.
