Hi-fi enthusiasts have always known that the cables used to connect a system together can have a profound effect on the quality of sound. Cream is our first instrument cable. After extensive tests, we are convinced it outperforms the competition.
One of the most important things a correctly designed cable will do is to reduce the amount of interference the cable can pick up. (Professional music equipment deals with the interference problem by using balanced XLR connections to equipment. This is especially useful for things like low level microphone signals.) The interference issue is fairly straightforward. In most cases the cable is a simple coaxial design (an aerial cable is a good example of a coax cable). The central conductor carries the signal; the outer braid both protects the signal and acts as a return path to complete the circuit. Most guitar cables are built from coax cables.
An Instrument Cable presents some interesting challenges. Not only does it have to transmit the
signal as accurately as possible but it also needs to be highly flexible, resistant to both mechanical and electrical interference and of course, reliable.
The Cream Instrument Cable uses a screened twisted pair design and cotton spacers in order to minimise both mechanical and electrical noise and is fitted with very durable and reliable Neutrik plugs.
