    If you had $40 to spend on a guitar cable today, what would you go with? I know there are a lot of diy-ers out there, but for this discussion I'm talking about a ready-made cable from your favorite music retailer. :)

    I wanted to use the Neutrik SilentPlug end as well as one of hte PX series. Problem is that i don't know what 2 pole is and 3 pole is. I'm pretty noobish at this stuff, but, I figured I'd ask here. It's been a while.

    Hoping someone can direct me to a solution here. A few years ago I wanted to cut off my cable tv but keep my cable modem. They would not allow me to have just the cable modem at the time but I've heard that they do allow it now. Now for my question. What is the best setup for watching tv...

    Well, i've heard a rumour that touching your jack ends on your guitar cables is bad, as you get crap and grime interfering with the connection when when you plug them in. So i've been told that you should avoid touching the ends and occasionally clean them with contact cleaner to make them the...

    So UPS just delivered the MXR rack EQ I ordered a week ago to my house, and I am very pleased with it. There is one problem though. It makes my signal very, very noisy. I am using the standard TRS in and out jacks in the back. But there are also what I believe to be XLR In's and Outs. They look...

    Whats the difference between Stereo and Mono Instrument Cables? Will it effect the quality of my sound? Cause I have a mono Live Wire Soundhose cable is there any difference?

    Hi guys, hope all is well. I'm going to be gigging soon and I'm wondering how long my cable should be- the cable is going straight from my guitar to my amp. I know venues vary but I'm wondering if you can recommend a length that will cover most average venues (clubs, pubs etc)? Thanks Regards Jon

    Hi, I recently bought a KORG TR-61 keyboard and I want to hook it up to the interface for my recording setup which is the M-audio ProFire 610. The interface has a MIDI input on the back for a keyboard but it also has sockets for line inputs. Am I right when I say that I go about connecting...

    Hey guys, I'm quite aware of the 4-cable method with a GT-8, but when I did it with my Peavey JSX I still heard the Boss GT-8 and there was no sound coming from the JSX. Even if I turn off the preamp stuff on the GT-8, I get what I would hear if I plugged headphones into the GT-8 and it's...

    Hey guys, I just wanted to tell you about my experience with my new George L cable I ordered off amazon for $25 new. I LOVE IT!!! My Dimarzio cable was good and held up against everything but it was starting to get worn out so I decided to get a new cable. The signature dimarzios were way to...

    I confess: I never studied much on Cables 101 until now. Big mistake. If I could only go back in time to the band days and fix my cables. HA! I am now convinced that spending time on cables is very important if you want a good sound and no humming noise from your rack/effect units. I've...
