Each patch cable is assembled according to order specifications. Length is measured from tip rod to tip rod when the cable is stretched flat. The Lyric HG has two solid copper core conductors which lend to superb sound, not to flexibility, which is why we recommend lengths of at least 8" to ensure maximum durability and flexibility. Only Neutrik 1/4" connectors are used.
Instrument cables will be terminated with Neutrik NP2X-BAG (straight) and/or NP2RX-BAG (right angle). The desired connectors are listed in the drop down menu in the store. If a required length is not listed in the menu, please contact us.
The Lyric HG Cable, like all cable, is directional. This means sound travels through it with better tonal qualities in one direction than the other. This will be signified by a red boot on one end of the cable for patch cables under 12 inches. The red plug indicates the destination (amplifier) path of the signal (the "IN" side of pedals). On longer cables, a heat shrink is added with an arrow pointing to the destination side of the cable.
