I have some new cables on my board, the BL cables and i love em. I have a very expensive cable from my guitar to my board and a Fulltone from my board to my guitar. I will keep the Name of the Expensive cable to myself because of what i am about to say now. I started getting some harshness from my guitar, i felt i could here it more with the Neck pickup. So i called one of the most respected Builders-Techs of the nation and explained to him everything i was going thru and told him about all of my equipment. He asked me if i had changed my cables recently and i explained and when i told him about this exquisite cable that i bought his reaction was GET RID OF THAT CABLE and go get a cheapo at your local music store. Then he explained to me SRV sounds and what Jimmi Hendrix did with his cables and he explained lot's of technical stuff as why i had to change the Expensive cable. He was right, did it and i feel like a mule for falling with the expensive cable thing. I don't know if this is the way to go or not, but i am guessing that those dudes we try to emulate didn't spend the whole day looking for a specific thing, they just played and sounded like heaven. I have this friend that plays cheap pedals, thru a Fender HR and everyone stops to listen to him because no one believes how good he sounds. Back to playing now, guess the Whirlwind won this round.
