OVERVIEW

Fender Standard KoilKords Cables are not the typical vintage coiled cable designs from the 60s with severely rolled-off highs and questionable construction methods, but rather a new interpretation that does justice to the past without ignoring modern needs.

These newly designed instrument cables are engineered to preserve what is good about the original coiled cables, without the problems and compromises. They do have the distinctive coiled cable voicing, but with a quieter background resulting from a twisted-pair design using separate signal and return conductors, in addition to a double shield over this. The stranding of these cables is optimized to compensate for the coiling, which adds inductance, and affects the sound.

The use of heavier gauge OFC copper conductors and better noise isolation provides a wider range, more open sound, as well as freedom from noise and interference that can compromise recording, or live sound performance.

Coiled convenience with sterling sound.

FEATURES
  • 99.99% purity OFC copper (oxygen-free copper) conductors for superior sound quality
  • Optimal stranding for best frequency balance
  • Separate signal and return conductors for superior noise immunity and better tone
  • Maximum noise isolation using two separate shields
  • Premium-quality, abrasion-resistant high-temperature PVC jacket for maximum durability
  • Precision-engineered connectors for maximum conductivity and reliability
  • Precision-formulated polypropylene dielectric for maximum signal transfer and unique tone
  • Proprietary-patented and patents-applied-for technology 99.99% purity OFC copper conductors for superior sound quality
  • Optimal stranding for best frequency balance
  • Separate Signal and Return Conductors for Superior Noise Immunity and Better Tone
  • Maximum noise isolation using two separate shields
  • Premium quality abrasion resistant high temperature PVC jacket for maximum durability
  • Precision engineered connectors for maximum conductivity and reliability

Give yourself the reach and tangle-free performance of a coiled cord without any sonic compromise! Order today.

      Comments about Fender KoilKords Standard Instrument Cable:

      Cable had unbelievable noise/static when you moved it. Obviously not good when playing music. I could shake it when plugged in and it would crackle and pop. Musician's Friend customer service was excellent as usual.

                Comments about Fender KoilKords Standard Instrument Cable:

                This coil cord is pretty flimsy and once stretched a bit it does not "spring back" into the original shape (I am comparing it to an old Bullet Cable that I also have, which is very high quality). Also, one end is 90 degree...but the cable appears to be "directional" (there is a little arrow at each end showing the preferred signal direction)...as constructed, it is not usable in a Stratocaster, which is one of my main guitars.

                Overall, the cable is "ok", but I would not purchase again.

                The highs are brighter and in your face more than before. There is noise when you drag the cord along the floor. Not sure if it's the nature of a Koil cord or a defect.

                      I like coiled cords and this was nice for the price - the longest one I have tried. I have only used it a couple of times but it seems solid the only thing I noticed was that there was a bit of noise if the cord would hit against the amp or the floor,etc. I'm not sure if this will affect how I use it in the future.

                        This is a very sweet retro cord. Sounds very good not as quiet as my other fender cloth cable.
                        Can hear it moving against the floor only when your not playing. No volume loss noticed. I got this as the stupid deal of the day it's worth the money and it looks cool.

                          Some would never imagine that a cable can actually improve your sound. Guess again. This one makes a world of difference.
