    Now I could try to impress you with information about double-annealed oxygen free copper and silver-plated elements, but I’d prefer to let your ears guide you. If both Gilmore and Paul Smith think these are the best sounding cables in the business, I think we may be on to something.
    I've been using Mogami for years, but want to try some of the PRS/Van Dammes. I'll have to order some, one can never have to many cables anyway.

    Well, unless you have all the cables from five 96 point patch bays left over from your former studio installation...

    Those connectors are wonderful. If you like to swap off guitars? Priceless - never have that big POP because you forgot to step on the volume pedal or go standby! I had one on a 60' Mogami demo cable and I still miss it! yes 60' - it was built because our Bass player couldn't get though a gig without his wireless going out and he'd yank anything shorter out in the first 5 minutes! Funny thing is 5 years later, i went to see him play with another band - wireless died during the set while I was there! Some things never change...

    I used to have cables die on me left and right - no cable would last more than I week. I tried 'em all. I won't list brands but you can name 'em and I've tried 'em. Monsters are the only ones that last and have lasted me 2 years now and they have a lifetime warranty. But prior to the Monsters I was breaking cables left and right. I think having the big diameter cable and sturdy connectors helps keep me from breaking them. I had to find the same thing for my earbud headphones. Don't know why but for some reason I break them. I'm not that rough on them - it's just with me it seems cables are prone to breaking.

    Also the tone of the Monsters I noticed was clearer than what I had used in the past.
    I have one of the GOLD ROCK MONSTER - only cable I've not killed. Lifetime warranty - yes - but the best part is not having to USE the warranty! The cable is stiff..

    I like connectors above so when GC came out with the new Live Wire Elite with a SIMILAR connector - I bought one - I'm now on NUMBER 3. Didn't cost me but it's still a PITA to have to exchange them.
