Pedalboard TRS cables (stands for Tip – Ring – Sleeve) are also known as “Balanced” or “Stereo” although the latter is misleading. These cables are designed to interconnect pro audio gear with balanced phone jacks. You will also find TRS connectors on the stem of Y cables. These are used for mixer insert jacks where the signal is sent out through one wire and comes back in through the other. TRS cables are typically used for mono, not stereo, signals in most studio gear hence the confusion. The most typical application of a “Stereo” cable would be for running both left and right mono signals to stereo headphones.
A balanced electrical signal runs along three wires: a ground, a positive leg, and a negative leg. Both legs carry the same signal but in opposite polarity to each other. Any noise picked up along the cable run will typically be common to both legs. Assuming the destination is balanced, the receiving device will “flip” one signal and put the two signals back into polarity with each other. This causes the common noise to be out of phase with itself, thus being eliminated. This noise cancellation is called “Common Mode Rejection” and is the reason balanced lines are generally best for long cable runs.
Put the legendary performance and reliability of the INTEX Instrument cable to work for you on your pedal board. INTEX TRS Pedalboard cables are the optimal solution for effect pedals, pedal boards, or effects racks. INTEX TRS Pedalboard cables use the same materials and build quality as their longer counterparts, Belden 8412 cable is used throughout as well as Switchcraft TRS right-angle connectors.
We have customized these Switchcraft connectors to accept a plated steel spring strain relief insuring years of serviceable duty, no heat shrink here!
