Members Stratotone Posted May 11, 2006 Members Share Posted May 11, 2006 Got the PedalTrain Pro in, was wiring it up and decided to get some George L's at the local GC. Well, they didn't have them... but they had the planet waves setup. Same basic idea - cut the cables, shove em into the ends. Here's what I found on these vs George L's - my opinion only. 1) Planet Waves cables are much thicker than the George L's. MUCH. For wiring a pedalboard, they aren't as easy to bend around. 2) The connectors are nicer. Twist the cable as you push it in, and then tighten a screw until it stops. I've owned GL's for years and they sometimes take a few tries to get them right. First time I tried these, worked perfectly. 3) The PW kit included a nice little cable cutter that worked great. 4) No idea on tonal advantages. they worked ok and seemed fine. Shorter cables don't vary as much as longer ones. I don't like the way the PW's are harder to bend/move around the pedalboard than the GLs, but they are easier/quicker to assemble and seem to be very well made. I ended up getting my set for $45 plus shipping, not bad for 10' of cable and 10 ends. Pete Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
