Why Choose Caulfield Cables
WHAT MAKES CAULFIELD CABLES DIFFERENT?
Few musicians realize the impact their instrument cables can have on their tone. This is largely due to a property known as capacitance. Your cable becomes a capacitor (much like the tone knob on your guitar). The higher an instrument cable’s capacitance, the more high end will roll off the signal, resulting in a muddier tone.
Capacitance is measured using picofarads (pf). The average, mass-produced instrument cable has a capacitance of anywhere from 40 to 90pf/ft. In contrast, Caulfield Cables uses cables that are durable, flexible, and have some of the lowest capacitance ratings in the industry. This ensures that even at long runs of cable, you don't have to worry about high end roll-off.
CABLES WE USE
Classic Series: Our Classic Series cable uses Van Damme Pro Grade XKE cable. Known for its incredible flexibility and its oxygen free copper (OFC) spiral shield, this cable has great sonic integrity and comes in at a capacitance rating of 27.4pf/ft
Tour Series: Our Tour Series Cables are built with the road (and roadies) in mind. We start with BTPA CA-0446 cable which has a robust woven OFC shield. This allows the cable to handle all that the road can throw at it all while having a capacitance rating of 20pf/ft.
HD Series: The perfect combination of the flexibility of our Classic Series and the durability of our Tour Series. Our HD Series uses Sommer Spirit LLX cable which boasts and amazing single litz design and ultra fine OFC copper shield making this an amazing cable to use, hold, and wrap. Mix that with a capacitance rating of 15pf/ft, you have a cable that works great on the road, bedroom, or studio
