or Silent Angled Jack to Angled SILENT Jack?
I wandered into GC this past weekend for my three month supply of strings, and found the Live Wire Elite cables on sale with a $20 instant rebate; 18.5 ft cable for $24.99. I'm going back this weekend to see if they have any left; it sounds great. I was prepared to shield one of my guitars, and now it is dead silent.
I buy Monster.....they have a lifetime guarantee.....if it stops working just take it back to GC and they will replace it with a new one.......I have had an occasion to return a few cables and GC honors the warranty (I know I hate GC too)......
I have a friend that honestly felt that most if not all insturment cables of the higher end were just snake oil & not worth the expense.
That is until his wife bought him this...
Klotz cable for his birthday one year. He was pizzed until he plugged in. Then as they say, the rest is history.
It completely changed his entire outlook on a "good instrument cable" & how it can truly hep with your tone.
I've still got a load of Klotz cables. In fact Klotz was my preference prior to the discovery of Van Damme. They sound pretty similar, but the Van Damme cable suffers marginally less "handling noise". Not a lot in it.
Cleartone used to use Klotz cable, but now use Van Damme. Neutrik connectors are still the industry standard, and for good reason.
How long is 8MO? Does that mean 8 Meters?
Probably about 20-25 feet
Very long haha.
Yeah, I wouldn't need more than 20 feet at most.
i want about 12-13 feet.
I've been using a braided 25ft Spectraflex cable for the past 15+ years and it's built like a tank...although I've never done a tone comparison with other cables.
It sounds damn good to me though!
spectraflex fatsoflex and planet waves pro.
keep the length to a minimum and get planet waves circuit breakers...as the name suggests you can switch off the signal if you change a guitar and prevent blowing peoples heads off with your amp cranked.....ive used them for years...and if they break you just cut that bit off and push the jack back on...also no soldiering required and they guaranteed for life......so they say..although i have bought 3 in my lifetime and only have one left...its just easier to buy a new one
why dont you make some? anphernol connectors and mogami cable
This thread interests me, as I know little about cables. Oh, I know those thin little gray things with molded jacks that come with cheap guitars (and some not-so-cheap guitars) are crap and should be thrown out. I've just been using an 18' cable I bought at my luthier's store for $18 from my guitar to my pedals. My luthier does not sell junk (and if he has to because he took it on trade, he tells you it's junk). So I presume this cable is decent, because he said it was.
Thing is, I had my pedals running from a 20' cable to the amp, and that is a total of 38' (not counting the patches between cables). And I had wondered why my rig sounded so much better with the clean boost on!? So for my practice room, I replaced the 20' cable from pedals to amp with a 6' cable, and it sounds much better with the clean boost off now, as well as with it on.
I used to run Canare GS-6 which does the job, tried a few others that were supposed to be better, none of them were to my ears,
until I tried Evidence Lyric, it's the GS-6 but clearer, bassier, more full range.
I've just bought another les Paul and for some reason they don't like the Nuetrik leads? They work great for every other guitar I've got, anyone else found this?
