I have been playing all day now with my new monster & planet waves cables I got for christmas. (I love my wife ) WAY better than the radio shack crap I was used to. It even made my pedals sound better especially the touch sensitive ones like Mosferatu, Hellbaby, and Hellbilly (and combinations of stacking these into either fish factory or timmy, which is also NICE). They seemed to be a lot more touch sensitive, and stacking seemed to pass that trait somewhat to the next pedal in line. Yes I know most of you know all about this stuff, I did too, but could never get the touch sensitivity down to work to the point that I felt I had full control over my instrument. I practiced all day on right hand technique because of this, and feel as though I have a much better understanding of using the volume on my guitar and tone knobs. Have any of you had a pedal that made you discover things you never knew, or inspired you to learn new things? Another example would be the mosferatu and timmy inspiring me to find the sweet spots on my fretboard that produce that natural bloom that is so awesome when used in the right context.
