First of all, I have to say that I'm really conviced that cables makes a difference in tone, I experimented that with my hi fi system and was blown away... This said, electric guitar is far from hi fi and I'm a bit reluctant to spend the value of a pedal in buying a simple cable. I already use George L cables both in pedalboard and from guitar to pedals and pedals to amp. I choose them mostly for the non-soldering system. Sometimes, I plug some of my "old" cables, and frankly, I cannot hear any difference. But I hear a big difference in clarity when I put my buffered Klon out of my chain! So, my question is: does those high end cables makes a difference in tone when playing live with a band, in a buffered chain? Isn't a good buffer a better investment?
