The Studio Series Microphone Cables feature quad high-strand count, oxygen-free copper conductors sealed in low-loss polyethylene insulation. These cables are designed for studio and stage applications and are made in the US by Accusound. There is also the STMC-5—5 meters XLR $59 and the STMC-10 at 10 meters XLR at $75.
