D'Addario American Stage Series cables are designed with audiophile quality wire, made in the USA, designed to reproduce the natural tones of your instrument with zero interference. The low 28pF/ft. capacitance is the sweet-spot for uncolored tone and the 22AWG oxygen-free copper conductor provides exceptional signal transfer. American Stage cables reject interference and avoid handling noise with 100% shielded coverage and 95% tinned copper braiding. Traditionally, mechanical tolerances of 1/4-inch jacks can vary greatly causing unreliable connections. Always seeking to innovate, D'Addario designed the patented GEO-TIP plug and partnered with Neutrik for production in their state-of-the-art facility in Liechtenstein. The unique shape of the GEO-TIP design ensures a secure connection in any instrument, pedal, or amp jack. 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.
