Smile Guitar cable advice!

Right I've had enough of guitar leads dying. I played a gig the other week and in the first song two leads broke.... So i was in local guitar browsing and i noticed some klotz cables at about (£25) which had a 30 year warranty on them... I want to go online and see if i can get them cheaper anywhere else but i cant find them. Does anyone know any UK shops which have these? Has anyone used these before? Or any other suggestions? Ive thought about wireless kits but im not sure!

Thanks guys

Re: Guitar cable advice!

Double check the fine print on the warranty... Most warrantys only cover manufacturor defects. That does not include normal wear and tear like a wire braking from normal use

Re: Guitar cable advice! have them for £22.

I'd recommend Van Damme cables, been using them the last few months and I'm quite happy. Switched from George L's and Planet Waves classic instrument cables.

With Van Damme, you can buy the cabling and neutrik connectors in bulk and with basic soldering skills you will have some high quality cables. That's what I do, and you can cut them to whatever length you want.

My favorites are Lava ELCs made by Mark Stoddard at Lava Cable. Great quality stuff.
