    The wire is very good

    The wire is very good quality. I was able to adapt it to my hanging pendant lights and they look like new.

    I want to give a special thanks to Jordan who was very helpful.

    Great experience.

    The product I received was just as described online. Good description online as well so there was no confusion as to if this was a 2 or3 conductor wire. Wire is of good quality and the fabric covering matched the online color exactly. The wire shipped quickly and was delivered about 5 days after I ordered it. Customer service was very quick to respond via email with my questions. I will buy again with confidence. Nice to find an outlet to buy specialty wires for my custom electrical projects.

    Excellent cloth covered cord

    I needed a high quality cloth covered cord to replace a 1920 era power cord for a player grand piano. The cord I purchased from Color Cord Company was an excellent compliment to the meticulous restoration that I am doing on a very fine Mason & Hamlin Ampico B piano. Thanks for the excellent product!
