    What do you guys think of Fulltones cable? I am going to do my pedalboard with George L's. I was thinking that the cord I use from guitar to pedal board, Maybe I'd might be better off with something besides the George L's
    (something stronger, tougher). Also the same with the cord from pedal board to amp. opinions? Thanks

    www.lavacable.com. There are better cables out there. Check out the cardas and evidence cables.

    jlagrassa and others, Is the fulltone cable feel real stiff, or does
    it tangle up easy?

    The Fulltone cable has a nice heavy feel to it but it is not a stiff cable and does not get all tangled up like a Monster cable does! once the cable breaks in after a day or 2 it becomes very flexible.

    Thanks Lagrassa, I think I'll get 2 cables....I like the straight to angle
    myself. Looks like a well made cable.

    You can't go wrong, I'm using only the Fulltone's for a year now. Coming off of Lava, Canare, Mogami, Monster, GeorgeL, etc etc.

    It just has the right EQ for what I want to hear.

    That's odd. I find the Monster cables are thick and don't tangle at all. Ever.

    I have use two Monster Jazz cables and two handmade Bayou cables (Canare wire).

    The Bayou cables are widely considered the "better" quality, and they sound great, but they are much thinner and tangle SO easily. Constantly little twirls and swirls going on.

    I find myself keeping the Bayous at home and using the Monster cables (which also sound great) for all rehearsals and gigs.

    Again, my Monsters don't tangle ever. That is my favorite feature actually...

    I was curious about the Fulltone cable. Are they as thick as the Monster?

    :rolleyes:

    The Fulltone cables are no joke.. nice and thick, not too stiff, well built, and a great EQ for electric guitar. Definately my first choice in the $30-100 range.

    I like the Fulltone cable, even when compared to some of the more expensive stuff. Its not bright and compliments the electric guitar well. Coils fairly easily and seems to be well made. Reasonably priced too.

    Yeah I read something about patch cables on their site yesterday. I too was wondering about their cables. Can their local dealers sell them, or are they direct order only?
