Braided mono-crystal copper shielding and 24K gold-plated connectors further enhance performance, while the stylish woven outer jacket coils smoothly and provides lasting durability. Whether you plug directly into your amp or through a multi-effects processor or pedals, BOSS premium instrument cables will elevate your music with unmatched fidelity.
Engineered for Maximum Musicality
While players spend a lot of time choosing guitars, amps, and pedals, the importance of a quality instrument cable is often overlooked. As the first point of transmission between your guitar and the next device in the chain, your main cable has a significant impact on the overall sound and response. In developing our premium line, we evaluated the many elements that go into a cable—wire gauge and type, shielding, connectors, and more—to discover how they all work together to affect the sound. Our proprietary blend realizes the perfect balance, bringing you the most musical and sonically pure cable available for guitar and bass.
Superior Copper Core Wire
At the heart of a BOSS premium cable is the stranded center core wire that carries your instrument’s sound. The oxygen-free mono-crystal copper we use is produced with a special process to achieve 99.99% purity. This brings numerous sonic benefits over more common copper, including ultra-linear signal transfer, increased headroom, ultra-wide frequency bandwidth, and improved conductivity for minimal resistance. Every nuance of your sound is delivered with the utmost transparency, punch, and fidelity, accurately translating the true richness and character of your instrument’s pickups and natural resonances.
Noise Free and Durable
The materials that surround the center core are also vitally important to overall performance. Made of the same high-grade copper as the core wire, our cable’s braided shielding provides a protective shroud for superior noise rejection and lasting durability. A PVC conductive layer around the center core further improves fidelity by eliminating handling noise as you move with the cable. Our connectors feature 24K gold plating, offering corrosion resistance and improved conductivity over common nickel connectors. Lastly, the handsome woven outer jacket provides another layer of noise rejection while keeping your cable free of kinks and tangles.
