guitar cable wiring trouble
I think this post fits here...
A friend of mine gave me a guitar cable that he reported had failed because i told him i could fix it. I took the end off and soldered on a "Silent Plug" where there is a spring mechanism that slides over the plug to prevent buzz and pops when plugging it in. I don't think i'll buy those anymore. but here's my question: If you snip a few of the ground wires (out of the several dozen that are coiled around the signal cable) when you are stripping some plastic sheath off, will that make for any sort of signal loss?
i tried the guitar cable out and it would play, but at significantly lower volume and wouldn't carry much gain, either.
i tried my regular cable out and it's fine. might it be the plug? the ground wires (a few) that i snipped off? or maybe just the cable, which i hadn't tried before.
