You had ones that lasted that long????????????? What is your secret?
05-11-2011 06:44 AM
Thats basically everything... my buddy buys his kid 80s tranformers from Ebay because the new ones disintegrate after a week.
I think the secret is that they were made 30 years ago. Cables I bought 20-30 years ago seemed to last me a long time, not like now. And I didn't buy expensive, top-of-the-line cables with lifetime warranties. I still have some store brand cables I bought from over 20 years ago that get used regularly and have never failed me. The only cable I bought recently that I like the quality of is a Planet Wave cable. I bought it because it has a circuit breaker button so I can hot swap guitars without having to turn of my amp.

Don't you still need a cable to go from the receiver to your amp/pedalboard/etc.?
I hate them all. Can't stand being on a leash. *humps wireless system*

Did that about 2 months ago and it got rid of all the buzzing issues that I was having. Also, their lifetime warranty is fantastic. It starts to buzz or crackle, take it back to GC and they just hand you a new one. No questions asked.
After having trouble with guitar cables for years I finally upgraded to a mogami yesterday. I'll let you guys know how if there is any difference with a $60 instrument cable.

I just retired a cable I have had for like 5 years. I need a 90 degree cable with some length. I picked up a low line cable by monster ,, just because it was the only thing at GC that had the 90 degree end on it. Hopfully it will hang in there.

I bought a pair of Monster cables :love: about 5 yrs. ago with a straight on one end and a 90 on the other. Both are still going. I've had the opposite experience from an earlier poster. You were lucky if the "curly cords" of yester-year lasted a month of gigs & rehearsals. But, then again, I'm OLD. Maybe those previous posters weren't going back that far to the curly cord days.:lol:
