Anyone bought cables from guitar-cable.com?

I'm in the market for a long cable (30-35ft). I'm aware that this might affect my tone, but I'm not terribly concerned because I've got the board set up with a few buffers to diffuse the problem. I am on a budget, but i also don't want to just get some crappy cable that is going to sound absolutely horrible or break a couple months down the line.

Does anyone have any experience with guitar-cable.com? They claim their cable rates better than Mogami and canare on capacitance and you can order custom lengths of any cable and choose what kind of connectors you want.

which leads me to part 2 of the question:

What's best? G&H, Neutrik, or Switchcraft for connectors?

I order all of my cables (aside from George L's on my board) from guitar-cable.com. I have both the Neutrik and G&H.. Honestly I don't notice the difference.. It's a great company and they are fast.. I've ordered quite a bit from them (y-assemblies for my running click/loops, dual conductors for stereo setup from board to amps, regular guitar cables, midi cables, replacement cable for line6 relay wireless). They've all held up well on the road.

30-35 ft at a cable to board you will experience tone loss, unless you have a buffer BEFORE that run.

I prefer G&H plugs.

In terms of capacitance...lower does not equal a better rating. EA Lyric HGs have higher cap than many "cheap" cables.

Running runs that long though, I would agree you will want to look at lower cap to help minimize the tone suck you will experience.

You can't go wrong with that place. Built my whole rig from their stuff. Miles of cable. Speaker, guitar, PA, mic, pedals, etc. One stop shop. Good quality. Yes to G&H and Switchcraft. Meh to Neutrik

Guitar-cable.com is the same company as Best-tronics.com. Great guys to deal with, you can buy bulk cables and connectors or you can have them build up your cables.

I also buy cables and connectors thru Redco.com. I buy Mogami 2319/2524 as well as Gepco XBand thru them, best prices anywhere for these cables. Both companies are great to deal with.

The long cable run will be after the pedalboard with the buffers. my guitar to board cable is average length.
