    I suggest to build your own cables. I've been doing for a while now.
    Buy good quality cable (Sommer or similar), Neutrik jacks and 5 minutes soldering. For $10 you get a 6 m cable worth $60 in the market.

    I had a couple. I thought they were decent for the price. In the end I replaced them with Planet Waves cables which I found to retain higher frequencies better than the Reverb ones.

    Have not been impressed with planet waves cables, cutting out after just a few months.
    Thanks Paco, will buy a soldering and give it a try.

    for the price its hard to go wrong but I stick with cables that use amphenol plugs. Ive got ProCo cables now I really like, but those amphenol plugs are great for longevity

    little late chiming in but I have used the 20', 10' and the patch cables. probably the best cheap cable I have used. the 20' cables didn't last too long after quite a bit of abuse but the 10' are going strong after about a year.

    Mine started cutting out after three months of light use so I tossed it. I'm sure reverb would have replaced it if I asked but it was a sign to use something else.

    I've been gigging mine for a few years. It's one of those tweed covered ones. I use it from my pedals to amp, so it lies on the floor and takes a beating.

    Jut tried the Reverb cables and it didn't sound like there was any reverb added.

    Snake Oil.
