    If you run a black and orange cable together you sort of get brown tone.

    SRV used the green cables. When you run green cables in and out of a TS-808 it gets a thing going.

    You ain't seen nothin' until you see a keyboard studio! Seriously, I've bought a bunch of cheap TRS snakes, so I can cut the outside off and get lots of TRS cables. 40 to the mixer channels from the patch bays, same number from the patch bays to instruments, and that many again for the MIDI cables, not to mention cables to/from the interface, effects, monitors, etc. 70 isn't all that much. I probably have 20 in the electronic drums alone.

    My wife thinks I just buy them in bulk and throw them into the racks for the black boxes to chew on.

    ROFLMAO! Hey, I know: How about cables with tone controls built in? You could release or retain those frequencies!

    I'm a huge fan of Directionless Cables.
    They match my Musical style.

    I bought a 20 footer from them. I thought that the soldered parts had that protective cover, but it didn't. They sent me another one, still hadn't any. They ended up sending a bunch. Great customer care, but I still need convincing with quality.

    Four foot one ended cables are known to cause high frequency harshness. Try adding another six feet and put another end on the cable. That should fix it.

    Hmmm... The Scottish guy hasn't returned from getting his beer yet. He must have gone to the pub.

    THey should put tone controls on guitars so you can adjust the treble/bass ratio. Then you could use any cable you wanted as long as it was the right one and worked okay and fit the stuff you were plugging in and didn't take up too much space and was a color you liked.
