Our guitar cable leads are available variously in 3 metre, 6 metre and 9 metre lengths with straight jack barrel plugs; and for pedal patch cables with right angle barrel jack plugs we offer 9 inch and 12 inch 'snakes' (opposite way soldered) and 'ladders' (same way soldered) to avoid cable twist damage, and we also offer a 36 inch 'snake' to cross your pedalboard to a second row of pedals.

We have selected the very best low capacitance cables on the market by Sommer (Germany), combined them with the best copper core jacks by G&H Industries (USA), using the best and safest lead-halogen-rosin free silver alloy solder by Interflux (Belgium) for high conductivity, and glue halogen free heatshrink from Rayshrink (France) for our guitar leads and pedal board patch interconnects to give superior 100% maximally effective strain relief.

These are professional level cables of tour worthy quality and for those who also appreciate having this level of quality at home and in the studio.

In short… we offer the best of the best… all cables by Shootout are top guns!

If you are wondering what indeed makes a great guitar lead, and want to get past the snake oil sales and myth... check out our entirely factual Best Guitar Cables Explained!

Why SHOOTOUT! cables are the best:

• LIFETIME GUARANTEE

• 100% MAXIMALLY EFFECTIVE STRAIN RELIEF Glued halogen free heat shrink applied for strain relief designed to be so good that the cable outer jacket will snap if the connectors are pulled apart intentionally (i.e. as we have done in destruction testing). Yes that good!

• THE BEST COMPONENTS Only the very best 'snake oil' free components are used, and we avoid gold plating which is pointless and a galvanic corrosion risk

• SILVER ALLOY SOLDER
Lead-halogen-rosin free silver alloy solder used for superior conductivity and solderer safety.

• PRICE
World class tour grade boutique quality cables at mid-range prices to ensure excellent value.

• UK ASSEMBLY
Great care and attention to detail on behalf of our customers with each cable properly tested.

'BLACK POWDER' GUITAR CABLES AND PEDAL BOARD PATCH CABLES
Recommended for home, studio and stage use, and for pedal board patching where full size right angle jacks plugs are required. Ultra-low capacitance is especially recommended for long cable combinations and bufferless true-bypass pedal systems, and also to enable same length use for consistent tone at home, in the studio and on stage by using one 'long enough for all' pre-buffer cable length for all your guitar playing venues. We offer 3 metre, 6 metre and 9 metre lengths with straight jack plugs which should be suitable for most players in this regard, and offer right-angle patch cables in 9 inch, 12 inch and 36 inch 'snake' and 'ladder' variations to avoid cable twist.

'BOOT HILL' LOW PROFILE GUITAR PEDAL PATCH CABLE FOR PEDAL BOARDS
Recommended for pedal boards between pedals where space is at a premium as it uses a thinner cable and is combined with low profile right angle 'pancake' jacks.

Please note the following image is of prototype units.

Boot Hill Pancake Plug Patch Cable Prototypes

Sommer Tricone XXL Cable:
• Sommer Germany quality specification.
• Low capacitance (85pF per metre) for excellent guitar passive pickups frequency transmission.
• Small enough diameter for use with 'pancake' jack plugs

Jack Plugs:
Due to disappointment with the quality of available pancake plugs on the market (low cost Asian units that worked perfectly when they would actually solder vs expensive USA units that are also problematic) we have yet to bring the pancake plug product to market.

 

NOTE ON GUITAR CABLES AND BUFFERS:

Even with ultra-low and very-low capactitance cables, if you have long cable runs with true bypass pedals and/or vintage pedals and use passive pickups we highly recommend you look into putting a high quality transparent class A buffer pedal near the front of your setup.

The ultimate signal chain combination before your amp is to use best quality well shielded superior strain relief low capacitance cables like ours 8O) with a class A buffer inline before your effects pedals but after fuzz and other distortion and overdrive pedals that may not respond as well to a buffered signal as they do to high output impedance inductive passive guitar pickups.
