About Tone Vault Audio & Media®

Frequently Asked Questions
Whether you’re a seasoned music industry professional or new to it all, you may have some questions about studio-grade audio cables. Fortunately, Tone Vault is here to answer them for you! We’ve put together this convenient FAQ to answer our customers’ most frequently asked questions. If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance.
Q: What are balanced audio cables?
A: Balanced and unbalanced audio cables are similar, but there’s one key difference. Balanced audio cables have two signal wires instead of one, which are both used to pass an identical audio signal. While the signal that passes through is the same, its polarities are reversed between the two signal wires, creating an effect known as “common-mode rejection.” As a result, balanced audio cables can reduce noise distortion while providing a louder sound.
Q: Does gold plating improve audio quality?
A: On its own, gold plating doesn’t improve audio quality. However, gold doesn’t tarnish, which is ideal because tarnished connectors produce poor audio quality. That’s why Tone Vault audio cables use 24k gold connectors — they’re protected against oxidation, meaning you’ll have long-lasting, high-quality sound.
Q: How do I properly store and coil audio cables?
A: No matter what type of audio cables you’re trying to store, it’s important to do so carefully to ensure you don’t accidentally damage them or end up with severe tangles. While there are different correct ways, we find the easiest to be coiling your audio cables. You can use the over-under method, which involves twisting the cable in one direction to form a coil, untwisting it to create the next coil, and repeating until you finish. After your cable is fully coiled, secure it with a cable tie, and you’re done!
When it comes to storing your audio cables, we suggest using a cable organizer or simply placing them (fully coiled and secured) in organized bins.
Q: What is a quad core audio cable?
A: When browsing microphone cables from Tone Vault, you’ll notice they’re all quad core cables. This simply means that they’re constructed with four conductors in a spiral formation. Quad core audio cables are typically preferred in the music industry for their reduced magnetic interference and clearer and cleaner signal. We especially recommend this type of cable for professionals working in busy or noisy environments.
Q: What do I use an XLR cable for?
A: Not every microphone cable uses an XLR cable, but at Tone Vault, that’s all we offer. They deliver balanced signals, so we suggest using them whenever you’re looking for reduced noise interference. When using XLR cables, you can expect a cleaner sound without any electrical damage to your mic. However, they’re ideal for use in every music application, from recording sessions to live shows.
Q: What do I use a patch cable for?
A: Patch cables are among the most widely used types of audio cables in the music industry because of their versatility. Simply put, patch cables are used to connect instruments to amplifiers or different pieces of production equipment to each other. For example, a guitarist may use a patch cable to connect their guitar to an amp. Similarly, a music producer may use a patch cable to connect instruments to a mixing board or processor.
Q: What do I use a TS cable for?
A: A TS cable is the way to go if you’re looking for an unbalanced audio signal. Typically, this is the type of signal that guitarists are after because guitars output a mono signal, meaning that there is already a reduced risk of noise interference. You might also use a TS cable for a keyboard or a single-switch amplifier.
Q: What cables should I use in a studio?
A: The types of audio cables you need in a studio depend on the type of music you intend to record and your preferences. First and foremost, you must decide between balanced and unbalanced audio. You’ll also have to consider the equipment you’ll be using, from instruments to production gear. Ultimately, however, you can’t go wrong with the studio-grade audio cables by Tone Vault Audio & Media.
Our quad core microphone cables provide a noiseless connection that’s protected against regular wear and abrasion. Our instrument cables are developed with music professionals in mind, boasting minimized noise interference and durability unlike any other. Finally, our patch cables provide impressive signal transmission and feature 24k gold connectors that won’t oxidize. No matter what your needs are, Tone Vault audio cables will help you achieve the crisp, quality sound you want.
