I must be an idiot! I've been using George L cables on my pedalboard for quite some time now. I still have trouble getting them to work. I usually have to try 2-3 times with the plugs to get them to work and sometimes they never work so I cut again and finally get one that works. I have one that is working now between my Clone chorus and OCD but I usually have to bump it for full volume. I'm going to replace it soon so here I go again with the fight. Any suggestions?
