Hey there. I need a patch lead kit to hook up my effect pedals to my Midi-14. Will need something like 18-20 patch leads(2 for each pedal). So far the only 'kit' that comes with that many is the Lava Pro-14 kit which is shown on the gigrig website. Solderless with 30 foot of ELC cable. However the actual connectors are silver. My Mogami guitar and speaker leads are gold and I have been told that gold is the best for keeping tone. I really don't want to sacrifice any tone as all my gear is premium quality. Are silver connectors that bad? Are there any other kits that will suit my application(10 pedals) and come with gold connectors?

nothing wrong with silver connectors.

in fact silver conducts better than gold.

I think they are actually nickel connectors.

Never heard of silver connectors.


Sorry, they are actually made of Nickel. What's the consensus?

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.

it's basically a forum where if it doesn't cost $3k it's crap.

Many lulz ensue.

Kinda slightly on topic.... why get 2 patch cables for each pedal? You only need one as a rule.... That might help find a kit easier anyway...


Each pedal will be going into my Midi-14, they won't be daisy chained. Each pedal will have a cable sent to the Midi-14 and a cable returning from the Midi-14.

Using gold plugs on your instrument cable...

Advantages:
  • Doesn't corrode



That's it.
Unless EVERY single non-soldered connection between your guitar's pickups and the speaker cone is gold plated, you aren't going to see any sonic difference. And even then, you probably won't be able to tell unless you hook the whole thing up to an oscilloscope.
If you have just ONE non gold connection, all those other gold conductors become useless.
Its like having a chain with 2 inch stainless steel thick links, but one of them is made from play-dough.


Disadvantages:
  • Costs more
  • Not as durable


Gold is a soft metal.
Say you have a gold plated plug. You plug and unplug that from your amp over and over and eventually, the gold plating is going to wear through. Granted that's going to take more in and out than a whorehouse sees in a month, but it will still happen.

When you say everything connection, do you mean the lead from guitar to pedal board, pedal board to amp, amp to cabinet? Cause til now, all my leads have gold plated connectors.

Pretty much everything has to be gold plated. I mean, what good is a gold plated connector if the jack isn't?
