I'm currently doing some research to see how much of a difference my current cables would sound (Planet Waves custom series) VS. some other high end brands (Monster, Lava, Mogami)... I've heard & read some people claim that the latter brands are the best of the best, offering a very noticeable difference in tone clarity and definition, while other people claim that the differences are very slight and barely noticeable. so, I'd like to get some input from you folks to try and get some opinions about how the Planet Waves custom series compare. I'd be willing to upgrade my cables if the difference in sound was vastly superior, but within reason regarding price. I'm not really looking to drop a hundred bucks per cable (I use 25 foot lengths from my guitar to my pedal board, and from the board to the amp, then another pair for my pedals that I use in the effects loop). but I'd be willing to spend 60 or 70 bucks per cable if the difference in tone would be a massive improvement.
