Yeah, I got back from a band rehearsal, and my cable was a bit folded up in my bag - I had a lot of stuff to carry. Now, when I play, it has a crackle to the sound, and I'm 99% sure it ain't distortion - my amp is on the acoustic preset! Do I need to replace my cable??
That happened to me once, it might be able to survive a little longer. Sometimes if you keep it in just the right position it will stop for awhile, but you will have to get a new one eventually.
