Aaahh, because voltage in the US is 110v, as opposed to 240v in the UK, that means the current carrying capacity of the any cable would need to be over twice for the same amount of power use... Think 'Ohms Law'.You could do that. You'd need about 800 of 'em per sax, though. And they'd want to fall off, and then it's sneak attack time!
So that means the US wire would be much thicker (no comments please...), therefore the stripped US insulation would have a much larger internal bore, therefore would be more liable to slip off springs than the tenaciously narrower UK stuff, right ? We'll send you some of our UK cable, Paul.
(please note that at no time did I use the expression "so a layman can understand"... :bluewink
