      ive used the same cbi cable for years



      Who sells CBI cables like that? 1) CBI cables I usually see are the cheap black generic cable with the plain jane generic plugs. 2) Never saw a braided CBI cable 3)Never saw a CBI or any other cable with exception of a Lava or Whirlwind cable that had wooden plugs

              But isn't it true that once you plug any cable into a Boss or other momentary switch effect like we all do, you color your clean sound to the extent that the cable you use barely matters?

                Not when the cable cuts in and out, adds microphonic noise, or has so much capcitance that it loads the pedal down. It's all a system, and the pieces interact.

                      Brad Paisley and Nuge use

                      www.guitar-cable.com

                      However, 99.999% of your audience will never know the difference anyway, so why bother? Get the cheapest brand-name (avoid generic just because the build quality can be shoddy) you can find that meets your requirements (like if you want right angle plugs, or whatever, and a lifetime warranty, etc)

                        I used Planet Waves cables for years and years...

                        ...Until I started this Floyd Tribute act. Then I figured it was only right to switch to Evidence Audio. And, um... HOLY GOD do they sound better
                        Recipient of the coveted MBM Kicking Ass Award!! ...still proud of that one.

                                This "reference" is pure junk.

                                There is no technical basis behind any of the ratings. Everything is 100% subjective, with no objective, repeatable measurements of any sort in use.

                                Additionally, it's based on a single person's equipment - not any sort of actual test equipment. Thus, even if you believe that this one person has a reasonable ability to make comparative measurements by ear over a few dozen samples (which is completely bogus), you have no idea whether or not your equipment would respond the same way as his.

                                From an engineering standpoint, this "chart" isn't worth the electrons used to display it on your screen.
