Audio & Video Patch Cables
When using cables (leads) to connect instruments and other audio signals to the input of an amplifier, mixer or pre-amplifier, the cable or lead must be shielded (screened). Ideally the shielding (screening) should be co-axial and this is usually a braided shield (screen) that completely surrounds the internal wire that carries the signal. When this shielded (screened) cable is used, noise and interference are almost completely blocked. This type of cable (lead) usually connects guitars, keyboards and other electronic instruments to each other. It also connects other audio equipment like Hi Fi components, effects processors and other audio devices.
