Yes a better quality cable will help reduce noise and interference. That said, I use some cheap $1-$2 patch cables and I have absolutely no issues chaining 5 pedals with them either.

As far as I know, gold tip doesn't really affect sound. Gold tips are better against corrosion and such. What you want are well built cables.

As for good cables, look for stuff like Mogami, George L's
Some meh ones are stuff like Monster, livewire.

Depending on cable length and the amount of pedals, you could live with cheap cables without many problems

i don't think the gold thing matters at all

decent cable and good quality jacks (as with pretty much all cables) are the thing

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.

The cable makes a lot more difference than the connector.

Getchyaself some switchcraft 228 copies and a hella good cable of the length you prefer, then put the thing together with copper and iron and you've got there a hella good quality cable.

You can substitute the 228 copies with original 228s or whatever connectors you happen to need and/or like at the moment, I just mentioned those because they're my favorite jack connectors.

I use them Fender ones, black cables with white at either end. Seem fine to me, i have 9 pedals in my chain.

They are a lot thicker than some other patch cables though,more like an instrument cable, not sure if that makes a difference

Patch cables and instrument cables are the same thing.

Well they should be at least.

Not "instrument cable" nor "patch cable" means anything actually, though they are used to describe shielded cables with TS 1/4" jacks at both ends, with the difference being the length and sometimes the angle of the connectors at the ends.

May each and everyone of your listeners have mercy on you if you're using unshielded cables to connect your pedals to each other

Yeah i know that, but ive seen a lot of patch cables where the cable part is signifiantly thinner than the type of cable you see going from guitar to pedals/amp. Im just saying the 6" cables connecting my pedals are of the same thickness as my 10 foot cable going from guitar to my first pedal, not the thinner variety. If that even makes a difference

The thinner ones likely have a smaller core.
both 22 awg and 24 awg are common sizes.
I prefer using 22 awg myself as I can just buy bulk cable and use it for both instrument > pedal; pedal > amp and patch cables.
I also prefer Mogami (22 awg, I forget the cable part number).
