USA seller of "twin screened audio cable" or "two core screened cable?"

I need basically this. I'd rather order it from closer to home. My searches for this type of cable in the US haven't turned up anything, and I don't know enough about electronics to figure out what other names it might go by. I think it's a common type of cable so there must be something I'm missing. Thanks!

Here in the US, it's called "shielded" rather than "screened" cable. Example.

Yep, I'd call that "shielded," and the individual wires are "conductors."

So "2 conductor shielded" is the cable you're looking for.

Also commonly known as "microphone" cable.
