Hey guys, good news tongue.gif

I was in the store today, and I bought a new cable, a Schulz! 3m with the thick head, I just plugged it in my amp for the first time withouth the FX pedal.. it sounded great, but now I'm not sure if that's due to the pedal of the cable tongue.gif I also ordered a Toneport GX, and it's coming withing 24 to 48 hours!!!

Congratulations!!!
I'd be curious to know if the cable makes a good difference.
Is there any way you could test it with the old cable and compare? I'd love to know!

Actually a great cable vs a cheap and bad cable makes a difference..
I've tested it a while ago with a pretty expensive DiMarzio cable vs my old no-name cable..
There were actually less noise and and I thought it sounded a little bit better, but other than that nothing much smile.gif

But there's better cables than what I use so I'd like to test it again actually smile.gif

I've been told that the cable is the most underestimated piece of gear out there. There's the difference between the small plugs. Where the plug is just as big as the cable (like my old cabel(s)) and now I have one where the plug is twice as big. The store guy told me it was a different sort of plug, and better. Indeed the noise is a lot less.

It makes a lot of difference if you ahve really cheap cables. My cable "hummed". I thought it was everything, the guitar, the amp, the effects... Then I forgot to bring it to rehearsal and borrowed one and the humming noise was totally gone, man I was so happy it was a relativelly cheap problem wink.gif

I always buy quality cables now..

I had cheap cables over the years...There is a hearable difference really , one cable was actually lowering the volume of my guitar in comparison to the other!! Also cheap cables break easily..People underestimate cables , they should by good quality one and it will last them for years...

Congrats Kaznie on your new gear !! That toneport will make a huge difference in recording!! smile.gif

Even though i know that this thing will force me to practice all the "boring" stuff, i am still looking forward to it.. maybe because i also know how much good it will do me.. biggrin.gif

Ahhh.. Congrat on the new toy's. Your going to love your Tone Port.

I never thought the cable would make that big of a difference but this makes sence. I'm going to have to look into this. smile.gif

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Congratulations on your new cable !

I agree, musicians should pay more attention to cables as they indeed influence the sound of your instrument.

Great tread smile.gif

And another 24 hours as they don't deliver on Mondays in NL unfortunately smile.gif Gratz on your new gear btw. Since I have a very expensive guitar cable it never breaks down on me anymore, so it was definitely worth the investment.
