Xlr To Quarter Inch Views
Instrument cables usually have quarter-inch-diameter male plugs on each end, designed to plug into one female quarter-inch output jack on the instrument and a quarter-inch input jack on an amplifier, mixing board, direct box or snake (see snake below). The signal from the instrument is VERY small- so small that electromagnetic fields (EMF) created by electric motors, flourescent light ballasts and other electrical devices are large in comparison. As a result, EMF from these common devices would distort the tiny instrument signal travelling in a cable if that cable did not protect, or shield, it from the distortion. Therefore, in addition to insulation, instrument cables also have shielding. For reasons detailed below, while instrument cables and speaker cables look very much alike, instrument cables are not interchangable with cables for unpowered speakers.
Patch cables often (not always) have quarter-inch-diameter male plugs on each end, designed to plug into one female quarter-inch output jack on one device and a quarter-inch input jack on another device. Commonly (not always), the connection carries a small signal like an instrument signal. Therefore, the most common patch cables are simply very short instrument cables.
