I've noticed something as my small collection of gear has grown:

Planet Waves makes some really good stuff. I have a custom series instrument cable, classic series speaker cable, and a quick-release system for my acoustic.

Just sayin. Thoughts?

if you think its overpriced, go buy some monsters, they give the same quality as monsters for a fraction of the price compared to their price.
so plant waves FTFW
i also use these in the studio for recording and they work really well.

I hate their picks. Never tried their cables.

planet waves are pretty good imo
Well, Jesus Christ, I'm not scared to die,

I'm a little bit scared of what comes after

Do I get the gold chariot?

Do I float through the ceiling?

They have some good picks actually. I can't remember which and i'm not going to look, but they have like a planet waves logo grip on them and I had one which suited me perfectly.

I currently have these planet waves classic celluloid ones (I think.. I got a pack of 25 for Christmas) and I'm not a big fan, they warp and stay warped after a few hours of heavy play. And they were too thin.

I use planet waves custom leads, i noticed a difference over previous ones. But overall I just wanted high quality leads for recording and gigging as apposed to my old crackly ones which I made myself.


The Gear I Use Most:
Gibson guitars, Les Paul, ES-335, SG and more.
Dunlop Crybaby | Dunlop Volume | Boss TU-2 | Ibanez TS-9 | Maxon AD-999
Planet Waves Custom Leads
Marshall JCM900 (model: 4100 + 4101)

Monster are a lot better than Planet Waves, imo. It all comes down to personal preference though.

I use Planet Waves straps - the ones with the built in strap-lock things. I think they're pretty nice.

I heard Planet Waves cables are awesome as far as sound goes, but I also heard they break easily. Never tried one though.
#13
Well the great thing for me is that I love Planet Waves stuff, and my local shop sells it, so I get to support them with my purchases instead of that abomination to guitar stores called GC

The Joe Satriani strap is the most comfortable strap i've ever used.

I was gonna bring up those locking straps, they're friggin brilliant.

Only problem is I've only ever seen them in plain, single colour nylon which sucks if you want something with a pattern or in leather or just a bit fancy-schmancy.

Go to Lavacable and get some Mogami 2524, it's better and less expensive.

Their cables are overpriced IMO.

but you have to make them yourself, i think? and we all know where that leads you.
also, i like planetwaves better, no converting me, i like their durability and good reliability.

No, check out the link I posted

Every cable I've ever made, I still have, and the same isn't true regarding store made stuff, Mogami--being the exception.

You've never used a Mogami 2524 cable in your life, or you wouldn't have written what you did there, so when you say you like Planet Waves "Better" excuse my skepticism re: your truthfulness.

I would not hand the keys to the hall of great tone, to someone who isn't interested, as I'm not seeking to convert anyone. I figure, if someone wants to religiously adhere to their ignorance in place of experience, their decision doesn't impact my gear, or results at all.

It's cool... Use whatever works for you, even if it means paying more.

i have no idea about anywhere else in the world, but here in the UK you can get cleartones for about half the price which absolutely destroy them in terms of tone, noise, etc. etc.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

They're okay, but they're not the top of the line or anything. They don't present themselves as such either (unlike Monster).

Their strobe tuner is the most overpriced piece of shit ever.
It's less accurate than the Korg Pitchblack, not true bypass, and more expensive?
#24
I use their leads. I like the circuit breaker cables, they are handy for changing guitars.
