I have decided to upgrade my 20 year old Whirlwind cables to the best bang for the buck cables I can find. I am in the camp that says that in a band situation most people inlcluding me will not hear the difference. I am looking for a good transparent cable. No accentuated hights or lows, just pure transparent tone. I want to do better than George L. I play in a cover band so we are all over the map in terms of Clean/OD/Rectified tones. My amp is a Mesa Tremoverb combo. Guitars are strats and Anderson equipped Humbucker guitars. I have done the research and see the Sommer Spirit as a good value cable. The Klotz also looks good but is almost twice the price. Is it twice as good ? I dont mind paying the price of the Klotz if it is really that good or that much better than the Sommer. In my view the performance vs $$$ curve dimishes quickly the higher you go so i don't see the need to spend $200 on a cable even if it is better. I don't want to start another long cable thread (read them all) but I am in the best bang for the buck cable for say $40 - $80 for 15ft. Like I said I don't mind paying more if it really is THAT much better. Feel free to suggest other brands if they are better value. I am not looking to save money but I refuse to spend money foolishly.
