    The results don't surprise me one bit.

    Get ready for a ton of flack, however.

    so true your gonna get killed..;)

    am i seeing that these tests were done on bass?? if so i might say that the differences might not be as noticeable? id be pretty sure that you would at least be hearing or getting more level out of some of the top tier cables:confused:

    none the less i will constructively add that the presence and spectrum, say "detail" that comes with a guitar signal is alot easier to hear...
    my girlfriend noticed??? she cant play a G chord??? just my .2 (i use lava ELC and evidence melody nothing to fancy.)....but i easily hear the difference over monster and music store "no names"
    i do find your testing intriguing though...so im all ears :BEER

    Well, my Bass Player plays better than most of the people i have heard in a guitar forum, if i have to consider them by the clips or videos i have seen.

    By chihuahua plays more than half of the players i have seen in Guitar forums, ehhehehehheheheh :D

    Maybe next time instead of a "blind" test they try a "deaf" test.

    Just a joke. Personally I can see some difference in cable but not as big a difference as some people. A good quality cable with good ends soldered on is my preference. But I can for $2.50 make a 6" patch cable that I feel compares to the high dollar ones some people buy.

    Bottom line, if you hear a difference use what sounds the best to you. If not, save your money.
