So for years I've been buying the George L cables in varying lengths (6", 12", etc.) with the 90 degree jacks for pedal board reincarnations, etc. Damn if I can rarely get a 100% connection that doesn't crackle or pop, or flat out doesn't work. Once I get it to work, eventually one out of the say 6 or so on the board goes kaput b/c one of the connections gets jostled inside, then I have to figure out which one and replace, etc. For the love of God how do you guys get the cleanest cut and are there any tricks to getting it perfectly seated in the plug jack (or whatever you call it)? My last attempt was with a razor blade and still. These are the 90 degree ones, so you jam the cable in till flush, then bend 90 degrees and put the little screw cap on. I have a bunch of pedals in different sizes and input configs so straight couplers doesn't do the trick, although i'd love for it to be that simple. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
