Default Internal Tone Arm Cable between Cartridge and Connector for the outside Tonarm Cable

there are a lot of good known brand names for cables in that kind - here some examples:
Dedicated Audio - Cardas (4) Strand, Braided 33AWG Tonearm Cable with Soldered Clips
Dedicated Audio - Cardas 33AWG Braided (4) Conductor Tonearm Cable - per foot
But I want to know an overview of cable manufacturers, who produce such cables.
Who can give me advices?
And what is the most used english term of such cables?
Thank you very much for replies.

P.S.: Please note: I don't look for cable connectors in this kind:

The Cardas is a popular choice, yet due to the stiffness of the teflon insulation it's quite unsuitable for tonearm cable.

Cardas makes a 33ga cable specifically for tone arm use, it is extremely flexible and a joy to work with. I used some to wire my new SME 3012 clone (tone arm) yesterday afternoon in fact.

I don't believe the jacket on this litz wire actually is teflon as it is very easily thermally stripped with a solder iron during the tinning process.

I highly recommend it. Not expensive either.
