“A message from John Helliwell of Supertramp
I have known Neil Ramsden of “The Den” for over 15 years, and I can attest to his honesty, enthusiasm, perspicacity and friendliness in all my dealings with him, both personally and commercially.
His vast knowledge of all products in the area of quality sound has enriched my life. I hope that our relationship can last another 15 years by which time I’ll probably be deaf!
Frequently asked questions
Here you will find the answers to our most popular questions.
Most instrument cables are Coax, so why not. However, as this design is best used to transmit RF signals (TV/Radio) why not try a twisted-pair conductor with separate shield type (like Cream Instrument Cable) instead.
A Guitar pick up, for example, outputs an analogue audio signal containing your playing in the form of complex frequencies. Try both types of cable and decide which you prefer.
Absolutely not! The most efficient cables, like Turbo>Tone, lose less and are sonically neutral. Less efficient examples (prefered by some Artists) lose certain existing frequencies (thus destroying elements of the music) largely due to a combination of materials, design and engineering.
Both. Cable Capacitance is very important at certain frequencies such as the Radio band. However, it is much less important at frequencies you can hear.
Simplified statistics are a useful, fashionable marketing tool. Knowledge and experience of different cable types you can use is very important as this is potentially more rewarding in terms of playing enjoyment.
