Here’s a great video on making your own professional grade cables for guitar (and other equipment). Apart from the rather cheesy beginning and ending this is a really clear and well put together tutorial, presented by Robert Hull of TubeDepot.com
If you’re confident with a soldering iron you can:
- save yourself a fortune
- make sure you never have dodgy cables in your signal path
Bad cables are a total pain, causing noise and signal drop out. And tracking down the source of the problem can frustrate you and eat up your time if you have anything more than the most basic set up.
Key message: roll your own, and relax!
