An instrument cable that minimiuzes both signal noise and single-coil pickup noise.
This Pro Co Instrument Cable's construction is based on transmission line theory. In a nutshell, using a 4-conductor microphone cable to replace a single-conductor guitar cable, Pro Co solders the cable's two red conductors (red and red with white stripe) to the tip on either plug, and then solders the cable's two black conductors (black and black with white stripe) to the ground on either plug. Pro Co then solders the shield to the ground on the amplifier end and lifts the ground (do not solder) on the instrument end. This helps to shunt most of the noise that jumps on the shield to chassis ground before it becomes part of the signal path. This defends the world from guitar players with noisy single-coil pickups and helps quiet them (the pickups; not the guitar players) down to a usable commodity before the drummer shoots the guitar player. The white, right angle end of the audio cable goes into the guitar and the black, straight end of the cable goes into the amplifier.

I was given one of these cables in 1995. It still works and is a very quiet cable. It has been used extensively and never has shown any sign of wear. I just wish Pro Co made a cable with the right anlge for the amplifier and a staight instrument end. That combination would be perfect for strat lovers like me.
Nothing flashy about these cables, but they just seem to work. I got two of them over a year ago (bass to pedalboard, pedalboard to amp) and they've been to over 50 rehearsals and a handful of gigs and never showed any sign of failure. I don't baby them, but I'm careful not to twist them too much when I coil them and it's paid off. They seem more flexible than a lot of other cables I've used, but not in a cheap way.I subtracted points for value only because I thought they were cheaper back when I bought them. These are nice cables and they should last you a long time.
I have a guitar with the cable jack on the bottom. So I looked around at the 4 guitar stores near my house, and this was the only cable that i found with a right angle jack on it. I bought it and wasn't expecting much. I thought it would be just like any other cable, but i have had it for about a year now. It is quiet and clean and clear and it doesn't get twisted up in knots like all the other ones. I definitely recommend spending a few extra dollars to get this cable.
