Title: The Best Guitar Cable


1
The Best Guitar Cable
Jump on any gear forum and youre bound to see
debates about the best guitar cable.  There are
myriad claims, information and people will
fight to the virtual death over issues like
capacitance, tone suck, conductive plating,
directional current, tone, presence and the ever
important cryogenically frozen reverse oxidized
double spec phase inverted technology!  Needless
to say, it can be overwhelming.

Instrument Cables
One end goes in the guitar jack.  The other goes
into your amp or first pedal in the chain etc.
 These cables are unbalanced (as opposed to a 3
conductor balanced mic cable) and generally have
two conductors.  The center conductor is
surrounded by the ground.  This shields from EMF
(electric and magnetic fields) and RF (radio
frequencies).
3
Patch Cables
These work on the exact same two conductor
principle as an instrument cable but they are
designed to be small and compact.  The idea
behind these is to connect a chain of pedals
while keeping things neat.  Many brands of patch
cables have a very thin insulator (the rubber
stuff on the outside).  This is simply because
they arent going to be experiencing much
movement and dont need to be durable like a
guitar cable thats getting dragged around and
stepped on.

Speaker Cables
These are an entirely different cable.  They are
not shielded like an instrument cable, are a
larger gauge than a guitar cable and they are
designed to carry much more current.  How much
current you ask?  Well, I could tell you a story
of the time I licked the end of a monitor cable
in hopes of discovering if any signal was coming
through.

What are the best patch cables for my pedal
board? 
  • Glad you asked!  There are hundreds of different
    brands and styles out there and it gets a little
    overwhelming.  Here are the benchmarks of a good
    patch cable.
  • They pass signal
  • They are easy to position and manipulate
  • They are durable This is relative to the
    application.  If youre not using a pedal board
    invest in quality / thick soldered patch cables.
     They are going to get beat up.  If you are using
    a pedal board try to find the smallest option
    possible that meets the above requirements.

What speaker cable should I buy?
Buy something durable that you like the look and
feel of.  You want it to hold up under situations
like an amp falling over on it, roadies using it
to hoist equipment, securing a loose axle on the
tour trailer etc.  Just get something tough that
you like.  Salvage sells custom speaker cables
with a cool vintage vibe.  Its just some high
quality wire I found that we solder high quality
jacks to.  It looks cool, it feels good and it
lasts.  If you like it, buy it.

unannounced or just to see whats up be sure to
