The best cable in the UK.
Now available in the USA.
The Van Damme range has been designed, engineered and refined for over two decades as a result of technological advances and customer driven requirements.
This comprehensive and intelligent yet practical range of specialist audio and video cables has achieved premier status simply by being the finest cable range of its type on the open market.
Listening closely to customers and keeping our finger ‘on the pulse’ has afforded us the enviable position of offering our clients what they truly need without compromise.
The highly evolved products in this site are a result of years of keeping ‘in tune’ with our customers coupled with our own refinements and exhaustive research and development into cabling technology.
We have incorporated into the Van Damme range many new and innovative ideas never seen before. These are designed to cater for anything from eco-friendly to user friendly, this largely depending on whether it is an architectural specification or the rigours of touring.
What we believe we have created are truly elegant cabling solutions for a vast array of applications.
This is why Van Damme is employed so confidently on the stages, studios and screens across the world.

SESSION-GRADE INSTRUMENT CABLE
Hand-crafted by Van Damme in England, this cable ranks among the finest in the world, at any price.
Silver Series Cable employs an ultra low capacitance design – ideal for use in critical audio applications. Because silver is a better conductor of electricity than copper, this cable contains ultra-pure silver plated oxygen-free copper elements. This counteracts conductor saturation, resulting in vast, unimpeded high frequencies and fuller low frequencies versus copper-only cable designs.
In other words: it’s all about capturing the tone of the instrument with as little colouration as possible.
"It's always in the kit wherever we go."
Dan Dearnley, guitar tech
"A permanent fixture in Tony's studio."
Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath)
Silver Series cable is available in three varieties to suit your setup:
LO-CAP 55 p/F
Ultra-low capacitance for minimal high end roll-off. Ideal for guitars with passive humbucking pickups, this cable ensures that mids and highs sing out, bringing the tone of your instrument to life.
FLAT CAP 90 p/F
We call it Flat Cap - in fact, the comparatively low capacitance of this cable makes it a workhorse of the highest quality. Humbucking and single coil guitars, bass guitars and keyboards all benefit from this cable's crystal clear transmission.
HI-CAP 125 p/F
Too much high end from your single coil or amplified acoustic guitar? Try the Silver Series Hi-Cap. The smooth high end roll-off tames wild upper frequencies, putting you back in charge of your tone.
TOUR GRADE CLASSIC XKE
HIGH-PERFORMANCE MICROPHONE CABLE
Van Damme Tour Grade Classic XKE microphone cable combines flexibility, durability, noiseless operation and excellent handling characteristics. Designed for both mic and line-level balanced audio and ideal for on-stage use, these cables can be found in film and recording studios, high street music shops, professional touring applications and the education sector.
For individual microphone level analogue audio signals in areas of high electronic interference, Tour Grade Classic XKE Starquad is recommended. This cable is ideal for outside broadcast microphones and any microphone used in areas that may be subject to EMI and RFI - for example, in close proximity to lighting dimmer circuits and major power feeds.
These cables combine electrical integrity and great mechanical strength, without compromising flexibility.
