2-conductor XLR Mikrofoncable (Gotham) 1040x (color)
Cable: GAC-2 1040x double shielded 2-conductor microphone cable. Available in other version. PUR (10550 / NoNoise 10421, etc. available (surcharge).
Balanced double shielded audio cable! Ultraflexible professional audio cable for microphones. 'Double Reussen shield', velvet matte non-light reflecting PVC-jacket material. A unique separation tube between conductors and shields provides increased stability flexibility and protection of the conductors. Ideal cable for accomodation of XLR-connectors (Amphenol, Neutrik or Switchcraft!).
Similar cables are available as ultrastrong PUR (10502) version and as an extra low noise version (10421) with conductive seperation tube for minimal handling noise for film microphone booms.
Connector: GCXLRFemale1BK/male1BK (Pro-Serie with gold Contacts) XL strain releif -12mm.
As an additional option you could source the desired special connectors (any brand) and send them to us and we would assemble these connectors to our wires for a fee. But in our experience our Gotham connector are serving all needs for a very good interconnect at top standards. XLR we usually colour-code with small piece of coloured shrinking tube on the wire rather than these colour-code rings used on NT which easy break and fall off.
alternative : Switchcraft A3FBAU/A3MBAU (Pro-Serie with Gold contacts) or A3F/A3M with silver contacts

Prices indicated are always per piece with a 3 meter length. If you need a pair, please order 2pc. We assemble each cable manually in our own lab in Dietikon. Allow a few days delivery delay. Some stock available for immediate shipment. We can only invoice full meters but you can ask your cable per cm specified. Therefore 1.50 meter would be charged like 2.00 meter. We will confirm/quote correct price/delivery after receipt of your inquiry/order. All cables are made individually and indicated dimensions and lenght are estimated and possible tolerances of +/- 3% are possible.

Balanced XLR wiring instruction:
Pin1= shields, Pin2= brown (Signal+), Pin3= white (Signal -).
Should space not allow to solder all strands of the many shields, you can put only each a few strands of each layer of the shields to ground Pin 1. Cut away any spare strands from the shields and secure that no loose strands are hanging around. Use a shrinking tube to avoid short ciricuits. We do not recommend to put any ground to the body shell on either side of your XLR line. The connector shell will get to ground once plugged into a receptacle.
Having your shields put on the connectors shell is dangerous! Imagine, a loose cable can make contact with another loose cable connector having a different ground potential. So the metal connector is conductive and shall not carry your audio ground used on the shieldings of your audio signal. It can interfere with other "grounds" such as video, data of power grounds, which are potentially different! So keep "grounds" separate!
RCA/Phono/Jack unbalanced wiring using balanced wire:
Many clients use our balanced 2 conductor cable also for unbalanced interconnects. In this case we recommend to only use 1 conductor (brown) for your signal and put all other wires or parts thereof to ground with the shields. This will increase your noise protection! However for unbalanced application we do have our perfect unbalanced wires 1001x, and 1000x.
Unbalanced Stereo & 2 Channels (loop) application:
We actually do not support the idea to use a 2 conductor cable for stereo unbalanced wiring, however it will be done and can be made with acceptable compromise regarding crosstalk and similar. Again all the shields to ground but not to the body shell of your XLR connector. Check our perfect stereo cables 12001/13001 or our conductor shielded Starquad 11301 for real quality stereo wiring!
