Default shielded hookup wire for amp, where?

after putting in pot/RCA selector switch on several t-amps, sound is not clean when I increase the vol without a source input.

I am sure I can improve with a shielded hookup wire (solid, 22gauge) and keeping the input wire short.

I am having difficulty locating the wire, can someone direct me?

thanks,

gychang

Hi gychang,
I get my shielded wire from Markertek. They have a staggering selection.

if interference suppression is that important then select the shielded 4 core microphone cable.
It outperforms all other styles of hook up wire pairs in audio situations, except lowest capacitance. But any decent source will be designed to drive this capacitance.
