  • George L cable - dodgy batch?

    I bought a few metres of George L patch cable a while back, and it's given me nothing but problems.

    I've been using it for years with no major problems, but it's pretty much impossible to put together a cable that works with this batch. No matter how careful I am they don't work and just add a loud buzz/hum.

    I'm 99% sure it's not me, has anyone had faulty George L cable before?

        It could be the jacks, but that would mean 4-5 have failed at the same time, not impossible but...

            I had about 1 out of 20 jacks that were unreliable
            best is to cut off about half an inch of cable and try again (with a different jack)

              Make sure you are just stuffing the cable in the hole and not bending it (that's what SHE said). Don't bend the cable to a right angle. Let the screw being tightened do all the bending for you.

              It seems as if sometimes I will get a length of cable that I can bend and do no wrong with. Others, if I look at it wrong it won't want to work, LOL!

                So the ones you've had before have been fine, and these are new ones that don't work? I'd send them back mate.

                I've had no problems, I use George Ls for my main leads as well as patch cables and have never had an issue - I'd normally recommend them to anyone.
