Wire June 24 2013
So now I am sending kits with wire that might sound a bit better, but is slightly harder to work with. The new wire is Teflon insulated (the best) but the insulation is somewhat thin (better sonics, but harder to strip) and the wire is not tinned (better sonics but harder to solder). These drawbacks are probably worth it to have really amazingly good sounding wire for no additional cost.
Yes, it comes from plenum rated Teflon insulated CAT-5 cable. Stripped and coiled by loving hand by yours truly. Best wire ever.
