Instrument Cable Specs
Our instrument cables are made with low-capacitance cabling at 20pF/ft, meaning they have the least amount of tone loss from any cable on the market
We use 20 AWG wire with 95% braided shielding all encased in Techflex for tour-grade protection and style topped with G&H Gold and Gunmetal Plugs
Capacitance: Like Golf, The Lower The Better!
At a capactiance of just 20 pf/Ft, our cables allow you to get more out of your gear. Capactiance is the measure of tone loss and our cables are practically lossless!
Hearing is believing in the audio world and with Runway Audio Cables, you can hear the difference.

I ordered two 20 foot cables and a speaker cable, along with some patch cables. I’ve been using high quality cables for a long time, Mogami , Evidence Audio, Planet Waves. But these are definitely the best sounding cables I’ve used. The first thing you’ll notice when you pick one up is the quality . Definitely the most robust feeling cable.
This is one of the best cables I have ever used in my 45 years of playing guitar. From the price to to the durability and quality difference in the sound. Just amazing ty
I've been playing for 40 years and these are the best cables I've used! The only thing which could make them better is a softer weave on the outside for easier flexibility.
I had some old but top quality cables become troublesome, so I bought a 4 cable package of Runway Cables last winter. So, I’ve been using them now for quite awhile now. They sound great, roll up with zero tendency to turn into spaghetti, look cool, and now I’m thinking about getting a matching power cable for my Bartel amp. Why not?
Bought one 10 foot instrument cable to test the hype. Recording engineer I’ve been working with on first take asked me what I did to my bass. More clarity, depth and punch than my old brand name cables. I’ll be back.
Impressed by the clarity which is noticeable right off the bat. Love the feel of the cable, well built, durable road worthy cables. Bought two 20’. Great products!
Been using both cables I bought for practice and am totally satisfied with them. Tone is good, no noise and the jackets should last forever. 👍🏼
I didn't think that I would be able to tell the difference between this and one of my other cables. I was wrong. Don't use cheap cables with an expensive guitar and amplifier. This proves the old saying that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. I will be buying more of these.
I picked up a 15ft straight to 90% black out cable and wanted to see if they are as good as advertised! I did a head to head with my 12ft Analysis Plus cable, it is going on 10 years of owning it. They are almost sonically identical. I absolutely love my Plus cable that I own and was looking for a competitive but less expensive backup. These are a fantastic deal on a great cable! You will be amazed at the evenness of the sound quality! Best cable for the price and sound quality out there, if it is as durable as it sounds I will be picking up another one for my precision bass!
Returning customer. Love the red Runway guitar cable I've already got. Definitely fuller sounding than the Mogami gold I've been using, but still well-balanced across the strings. Just sounds like more guitar!
I don’t do reviews. Period. But I’m doing this one for Runaway Audio.
Get these. Don’t wait. Your tube amp and your band will thank you.
Full body, less filling. Don’t it. Thank me later. Touring guitarist for 56 years.
I didn’t need a new cable. My Fender and GC Elite cables were working fine. I heard and read about the capacitance of these cables. I read about what makes a good cable for an instrument but the capacitance argument ‘for’ these cables just raised my curiosity enough. I play through Marshalls, Suhrs, Friedman, and a Fender amp. I have half a dozen Gibsons and the same for Fender. I love articulate pickups like Throbaks, even when crunchy. I thought I was squared away.
I got this cable delivered, played my usual setup to get a benchmark imprint for my ear. Quickly, I plugged the Runway Audio cable in and played the same minute or two of Black Dog expecting to honestly hear the same thing (perhaps a little difference). I expected the audible difference to be 95 percent hype.
It was not hype. Wow! I plugged it into a Marshall DSL40Cr workhorse amp and the clarity was grin making!
I returned the played back through my old $40 fender cable then again switched—- it’s a big difference! The clarity of each note touched just shines. It is brighter as well but not artificially brighter. It just sounds like someone pulled the towel off your amp. I was so pleased that I bought a 15 ft section to replace my cable from the pedalboard into the amp as well. Again, you really can hear the difference! It is no ‘maybe’ quality, it’s clearer with no mud at all.
I did notice that the mids are less than my other cables slightly. But it’s easily balanced by a small bump in the amp mid dial. I realized that I had all of these nice instruments and pedals but they were not blossoming as much as they could. I’m sold. I’ll buy another 20 ft just to have.
You will never know what you have been missing. I have a 50,s Stratocaster and Fender amp. After I ordered my new cable it arrived 2 days later and I started my comparison with 2 other cables that I have. It is very high quality in appearance and when plugged in and playing I could definitely hear a difference right away! Thanks guys for a great product 👍
Love my cable! super solid, nothing else to say. I like all my tools being quality and reliable - with my runway cable I have that!
I’ve used Runway cables for the last 3 years now, and can attest to the durability, lack of kinks (bc of the wrap), and sound quality. As a touring artist, it’s really great not thinking about where the nearest music store is when my cable bites the dust. That was “when,” not if. Now, my lead cables AND my numerous pedalboard patch cables have had no issues whatsoever, and I have a somewhat complex wiring system that allows me to switch out pedals as well as use an audio loop switcher. And still, no connection issues after these years. Thank you Runway for the peace of mind and great customer service!
