It's wheatstone bridge time.....Ha, ha.
"What do you mean... an African or European swallow?"
When I was researching which curly cord had the most awesome toanz I discovered that the vintage Marshall cane grill cloth high end rolloff was smoother, creamier and more flutey than any of the boutique or vintage coily cables.
A yard of can grill cloth costs about the same as a good coily cable, and this seller is having a sale so the price is lower and might be your best value!
Hard to swap grill cloth though, and note that cane is really hard work to stretch onto a baffle evenly, so if you want to A/B cane vs whatever you now use that isn't creamy enough, you'll need to buy twoi cabs and load them with consecutive manufacture speakers to ensure a scientifically legit comparison.
The sweet highs cane delivers is really to die for though, so it's worth all the expense and effort.
"Highs" as a description of collective tone would really be singular, right?
Never trust tech talk delivered with poor semantics!
I see there is an even lower capacitance cable available: Sommer Cable "Colonel Incredible", 41pF per meter (2,40€/m in Europe)
My low cap. cables have 166pF/m (Fender Gold) and 116pF/m (Fender Custom Shop)
Talking about high-capacitance cables--I had a 20 ft Planet Waves cable for well over 25 years. It took hard abuse and kept on working fine.
Fine until I switched from bass back to guitar. With a guitar it lacked presence and was very treble attenuated. After figuring out the cause of the crappy tone I cut it into short patch cables
Yes. Do I recall reading recently that PW changed their cables to lower-attenuation after D'Addario took over? Not sure, but if you had a 25-yr old PW maybe they're better now. Not defending them -- I think of them as 'very affordable' and was surprised to see they are now apparently making a 'better' cable. YCMV...
