To connect your guitar to your amp. I think this is also important for the clarity of your sound. Also, what length do I need to gig?

i never needed anything more then 30 feet to gig honestly... mostly cause i don't go all out jump arounf the F#cking stage and stuff... but you could be safe and go 50 but that would cost some dough.... i like planet waves... especially the chord that has the killswitch in it.

Nice to know that. But I'm going to use it for guitar to amp. I have some choices like Spectraflex, George L's, Fender, Bullet Cables, Lava, Planet Waves, etc. Just want to know what would be the best.

I had a planet waves one, broke in a couple of weeks. Now I have one that says "control", pretty solid stuff, really thick, and gold plated jacks.

Edit: And the Jacks on the Planet Waves cannot be opened, meaning no resoldering...
all the world's indeed a stage and we are merely players

I use Whirlwind. I like them. I've owned a Fender cable (it was tweed, which was cool) but it didn't make solid contact with the jack in my guitar and the tip broke rather easily. Ernie Ball cables are nice cheapies, too. As far as gigging goes, only you can determine what you need. At some point, though, if you move around a lot, it becomes better to consider a wireless system since really long cables will suck your tone, especially if you run effects.

true... but they replace mine free with the warranty i buy with the cables! so... i take it back and get a new cable!

if you gig dont get a spectraflex (those covered ones right) - they soak up beer/liquid soo fast you cant even see where it went...and theyre pretty rigid...

i dunno..i wouldnt get one of those

where are you located? theleadfactory (if youre in england) could help you

Whodicted

I use Planet Waves, and swear by them.
I have the kind with the thing that locks them in.
You can also get ones that, if they short out, you take off the jack, cut a bit off the cable, and screw the jack back on and it works with no soldering required.
#13
^ yep! i love the locking jacks... they are great! i wouldn't go back to monster cable if you paid me!

I use Planet Waves. A little pricey, but I couldn't be happier. Not a single problem in the two years I've owned it so far.
#15
I have a nice looking bullet cable, but couldn't really tell you much about how it sounds since I run it to a ****ty 15 watt silvertone amp. still seems like a pretty nice cable though.

cables dont make a difference in your sound or tone, just reliability

care to explain why? honestly unless you are using a crappy radioshack cable, there wont be a difference in sound quality

Even the simple difference between copper and silver conductor in a cable can vary the tone slightly. Most people report silver as being a bit "brighter" and a tad more detailed. Of course if you really want to get nit picky, the length of the cable can determine your tone as well, when it comes to going over 30 feet etc. which can degrade it.

Thicker gauge conductor doesn't necessarily mean it will be any less or more reliable, but you can be assured using an abnormally thin gauge will make your tone sound more tinny, because there isn't enough bandwidth to shove the electrons through at a reasonable rate.

The actual plugs, outer jacket and heatshrink (if used) should be included in the quest for a reliable cable.

Planet Waves cables come with a life time warranty, don't they? You should be able to if you find your receipt..

I use a planet waves 15ft for my guitar to my pedals, some no name patch cables that were $4 each, and i just bought an IXL 7 metre lead for my pedalboard to my amp. And i dont gig, but just starting gigging i dont think you would need more than 15-20ft, because you wont be playing big stages with much room to move.

And i noticed you have a AES620, i have the 820. Theyre great guitars arent they, i love mine.
