Haven't posted here in a while and thought this would be a good place to discuss cables!
Mike 450 should especially like this one - I've just acquired a new Elixir cable
and it's bloody awesome. They may make those condom strings you don't like, but their condom cable is great! (??) It's very sturdy, superbly designed (ok it has non-serviceable patented plugs, but I doubt anything'll go wrong with it anyway) and most importantly it sounds great.
I never gave cables much thought until a few years ago when I decided to buy a Kordex/Kordstar cable from the States. It blew me away from the word go, when it replaced an old Fender cable I'd been using with my guitars. The Kordex is still my main cable and nothing (until now) has come anywhere close to sounding as good, and I've tried loads of brands. Unfortunately that company doesn't exist anymore, but if you Google them you'll find old forum threads and websites and they got nothing but praise from guitarists. Dead cheap too in comparison to Mogami, Zaolla, Evidence, etc.
Decided to splash out for an Elixir cable after reading the hype, and I'm glad I did. It's not as punchy as other cables, which is the only thing I don't particularly like about it, but it is crystal clear with great bass and midrange and doesn't muffle highs at all. Just sparkles away and is really easy to listen to.
So for our electro-acoustic members who gig regularly, have you found your perfect cable yet? Or are you using whatever cable is lying in the gig bag!
