The 18' Gold Instrument Silent S-18 Cable from Mogami features a 1/4" TS straight Neutrik Silent Plug on the instrument side, which gives musicians and engineers the ability to hot-swap instruments without that annoying pop when connecting and disconnecting their instruments. The Silent Plug side of the cable has a red finish for easy identification, with a 1/4" TS Neutrik straight connector on the amplifier/pedal plug-in side. The Silent Cable is manufactured with Mogami 2524 instrument wire. In addition, this high clarity and high-definition cable has a thick density shield and premium-quality Neutrik 1/4" connectors. Because musicians move around a lot on stage while performing, Mogami utilizes carbon impregnated PVC to provide an anti-static shield layer to prevent all handling noise.
