We have been very pleased with the results from testing the Melody Patch Cable used in combination with the plugs we offer: Switchcraft 228 Flat Plug, Switchcraft 226, Switchcraft 280, Amphenol ACPM-RB, and the Neutrik NP2(R)X-BAG. We recommend lengths of at least 6" to ensure maximum durability and flexibility.
Long cables will be terminated with Neutrik NP2X-BAG (straight) and/or NP2RX-BAG (right angle). Please choose the desired connectors in the drop down menu when ordering. Cables can be made to any desired length. If a required length is not listed in the menu, contact us.
The Melody 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 an arrow on the included heat shrink. The arrow points to the destination (amplifier) path of the signal (the "IN" side of pedals). For shorter lengths, the large heat shrink is not required as it does hinder flexibility. In these cases, directionality will be signified by a smaller red heat shrink on the destination (amplifier) side.
