(More customer reviews)I'm an audio engineer and usually make my own cables for stage and/or installation jobs. So, I am picky.
At first I was leary of getting mic cable at such a good price. I normally use Canare Star Quad, but I had to find mic cable fast for a small installation job at a church. I had volunteer help on short notice, but didn't have enough Canare on-hand, so I overnighted the GLS mic cable.
When I opened the box, the heavy duty cardboard reels were well packaged. I immediately got my pocket knife out and peeled back the rubber jacket to reveal the copper shield, several strands of string and white and a red plastic-coated stranded copper wires. Let me expound on the cable's elements:
RUBBER JACKET - for sound installation, this works fine. I don't know how it would hold up over time for use in live sound. It does peel very easily once you cut it, and that's a plus. I was able to install connectors quickly.
COPPER SHIELD - this is not braided copper. At first I thought that could be a detriment, but again, it works well for installed sound. I had to pull 4, 150' lengths for choir mics and all mics are working fine with no noise or RF interference.
STRING - this appears to be cotton string used in manufacture and it cuts easily and doesn't fray.
RED & WHITE CONDUCTORS - These surprised me. They appear to have a rigid plastic feel, but the outer plastic cuts away easily leaving the durable strands of copper. Also when soldering, the plastic doesn't melt or draw-up. All of the copper heats evenly and distributes the solder very well.
Great product with great service from the folks at Orange County Speaker.
