I make my own cables and have considerable wiring experience. I like cloth covered cables for my instruments because they should tangle less and are less likely to cling to anything they wrap around on stage, (di box, tuner, microphone stand or my feet!). This cable is sonically great with various acoustic pickups on acoustic guitar, mandolin and electric guitar. Unfortunately it is too stiff and so kinks easily in use, I was originally hoping to make it up as 6 metre cables but due to its kink Ines have kept lengths down to 3 metres. The second problem I found was that after heatshrink wrapping the ends the overall width was too great for standard Neutric jacks, I got them on but only with a lot of persuasion after filing out the strain reliefs slightly with a round file. Neutric do make a larger sleeve fitting jack the NP2Xl but not sure if that's for sale on Thomann and it does not come in a right angle version which I like on guitar cables. The cable does look very nice!
