DiMarzio® XLR Microphone/Studio cable. DiMarzio's formula cable is exceptionally crisp, clear, quiet and durable, they outperform cables costing much more. Some Dimarzio® cables have been called "the new industry standard," and have successfully passed Guitar Player magazine's "chop" and "jump rope" tests as well as many other torture tests. Custom designed low-capacitance American-made copper cable ensures low stage noise and guarantees consistent sound and improved high frequency response. DiMarzio® Instrument Cables are encased in a durable nylon braided jacket which is designed to lie flat, decrease tangling and protect the cable. All DiMarzio® cables are hand made in our NYC factory.
