This 4-conductor microphone cable has outstanding features: very low capacitance, perfectly symmetrical stranding (star-quad) and extremely dense braiding. To avoid hum and noise caused by induced magnetic fields, opposite pairs of conductors must be connected to each other. A stranded drain wire beneath the braiding facilitates handling considerably.
