Available sizes Overview

Designed to be a flexible, yet rugged component of professional live sound and studio systems, the TBK Series Balanced Patch Cable can handle the rigors of any audio environment.

The IO-T3MBK connectors feature an extremely durable nickel tin plated brass shell and includes both a metal clamp as well as a metal pressure chuck which tighten onto the cable to provide extended strain relief. The gold plated plug contacts, silver plated wire terminals, and XLPE insulation all ensure the best possible signal flow and extend the useful life of the cable.

It's durable and flexible PVC jacket protects the OFC conductors from whatever life throws at it. Add to the equation two shields, aluminum foil and braided tinned copper, and the conductors have double the protection from EMI resulting in a dependable addition to any professional audio engineer's toolbox.
