Gotham GAC-1

> Very Low Noise
> Flexible
> LCOF Construction

Due to its quiet behaviour and high strength, Gotham GAC-1 unbalanced cable is ideally suited for analog signal interconnects. It is equally suited for live applications such as a live guitar, bass or keyboard.

Description

There are two major types of noise that affect all audio cables – electrical interference and microphonics. Unbalanced audio cables are much more sensitive to electrical interference compared to balanced cables because of their twisted pair configuration. Balanced cables have the ability to mutually cancel EMI. The Gotham GAC-1 is a double shielded unbalanced audio cable.

Microphonic noise is caused by static charges generated when the conductor is rubbed/moved against its insulation. This occurs to some degree whenever the cable is moved. The microphonic effect is evident by a “crackling” noise in the system and usually occurs when the cable is handled or moved. Gotham GAC-1 unbalanced cable has been engineered to minimise these affects. Gotham has also went a step further by adding another layer of conductive plastic between the conductor itself and the isolation of the conductor. Essentially making a conductive material ‘sandwich’ between the 2 copper shields and the conductor isolation itself.

Gotham uses only LCOF high-grade copper in all of its cables. Accept no compromise.

Some advantages include:
1. RF-protection via “double Reussen shield”.
2. Low microphonics. A conductive PVC layer over the conductors insulation, allows any static build up to leak to the shield and be grounded before it has any harmful effects.
3. Jacket – a thick yet tough and flexible jacket protect the cable.
