  • GFS Solderless Cable System

    http://www.guitarfetish.com/GFS-Solderless-Cable-System_c_371.html

    Anyone using this stuff? Is it any good? I am really intrigued by the price point and ease of use.

    No... but I am super interested in it! I have been looking at the George L and Lava Cable solder-less systems... I wonder how the cable compares with other products?

      Soldering those big 'ole 1/4" TS plugs is not hard. Man up.

        I do all the wiring for my guitar stuff myself. None of it is hard for me anymore. If these work well enough, I'm glad to take the convenience for when I don't have an iron handy.

          These look like they use the same system as the planet waves stuff. This solderless stuff is a godsend. There were a number of times when I had to change cable lengths with my PW kit on the fly and didn't have the convenience of firing up a soldering iron.

            This. I have 2 PW cables with the cut out switches for several years and they just keep on working! If the plug end gets weird, just loosen the set screw, pull the cable, cut off 1/2 inch or so, put it back in the plug and re-tighten.

              I have the same issue with that I have with the Planet Waves and Core systems: giant ass plugs.

                    The Bryan Beller bass clinic he set up a full pedal board with the Planet Waves solderless system in just a couple minutes while babbling about other stuff just to show how easy it is. This looks like the same type of deal. Be pretty smoove if it works just as well as that did.

                      looks cool, but I'm not sure if I trust those solderless systems in the long run. I'd rather solder them myself and know they're secure.

                          Been using the PW cable station stuff for the last few years. I ended up buying the last 50' from GC and buying a bunch of used connectors on ebay to make my own cables.
                          The pedal board connections have been rock solid and I've never had to touch them. The instrument length cables need re-connecting every once in awhile though.

                            this. plus the fact that you save about $.50 by buying the package.

                              Solder is an electrical connection not a mechanical one.
