The Planet Waves PW-AMSK-20 American Stage Kill Switch Instrument Cable combines the rugged reliability and superb signal transfer integrity of the American Stage Series, with a very useful momentary "Kill Switch" built-in. For any musician who knows the pain of forgetting to turn down the level on their amp or effects unit before swapping out cables, the dreaded "pop" and "crack" that follows the unplugging of a cable can signal the end of a speaker, or a missile thrown by a disgruntled member of the crowd. The kill switch eliminates that from happening and is a welcome - and long overdue - addition.
Planet Waves pored over every detail when designing the PW-AMSK-20 to guarantee optimum signal integrity and transfer, rugged reliability, and a cable that is easy to work with.
Starting at the tip, Planet Waves created the patent-pending GEO-TIP connection. Thanks to this new design, the connection made between cable and any 1/4" instrument, pedal, or amp jack is perfectly snug. This makes the connection signal, ensures optimum transfer, and prevents dust or other unwanted debris from creeping in and blemishing the signal. The low capacitance creates the "sweet-spot" for uncoloured tone.
Reinforcing the strength of the connector, Planet Waves has used an in-line solder joint to create a superior connection. This makes the joint resilient enough to withstand buckling, and equips it with the ability to handle the stresses and strains that come with everyday use. The oxygen-free copper centre conductor contributes to the exceptional signal transfer. The conductor is shielded by 100% shield coverage with 95% tinned copper braid and conductive PVC under jacket. By employing this method, Planet Waves has guaranteed superb electromagnetic interference rejection, eliminating handling noise in the process to guarantee the highest level of signal quality.
Standing on, tripping over, rolling chairs or heavy cabinets over your cables are an inevitable part of a musician's life. In order to cope with the rigours of the road, a tough outer layer of protection preserves the structural integrity of the conductor and its shielding. The flexibility of the cable guarantees reduced tangling, making it easy to wind up after a show, and uncoil when it is needed.
The Planet Waves PW-AMSK-20 American Stage Kill Switch Instrument Cable is 20-feet of brilliance. Built to precision USA manufacturing methods, and using only the finest materials alongside custom designs, you are guaranteed a professional-grade piece of hardware at a highly affordable price.
