Proper made, sounds great, durable, decent pricing, plus you get to choose connectors, length, cable ... etc.



I like how they provide the capacitance rating... 20 pF / foot

For quality and relatively inexpensive - bulk Belden 9778 plus some g&h ends and solder em up.
Or if you don't mind spending - Vovox Sonorus


I have a Vovox cable. I thought it sounded ok until I realized it's microphonic. Slap it against the ground and it makes noise.

Really? Never experienced that with them. I have a Cardas that if you shake it around you can hear a little noise...great sounding cable though otherwise. Never heard that with either Vovox(protect a or Sonorus) I've had. Absolutely quiet, absolutely killer both of them.
What do you have exactly?

Like which Vovox? I don't know, when I bought it I think it was the Sonorus line. They seem to have changed their branding slightly so who knows. Now I just use bulk Mogami cable and solder up my own plugs. I'm not paying $200 for some freakin' cable lol...

I use a wireless and don't have a problem at all.

yeah I buy stuff from them all the time, like the specialty cables for my racks etc. Never tried their guitar cables though.

I got mine for under a hundred. I think they're normally around 130.
But on the microphonic thing, that doesn't sound right, Vovox's own words - high purity polymers; shielded; optimally protected against microphonics.
I'd think they'd probably swap it out for you.

Every cable in my signal chain is Mogami. Tough as nails, very neutral sounding wire.

You can't go wrong with Mogami terminated with Neutrik plugs and jacks.

I didn’t even think of them. I had them make the cables for my switcher. Solid stuff.
