Besides selling gear on eBay, MetroDCMusic also owns and operates a number of rock music schools in the Washington DC metro area. Imagine young rockers coming in for lessons and rehearsals, plugging into amplifiers and unplugging (yanking) cables hundreds of times each day - we used to go through cables like crazy! How long would your cables last if they had to stand up to that kind of use and abuse?
We tried all the major brands, including the ones from the guitar chain stores with a lifetime warranty, but none lasted. Then we turned to Kirlin - Asia's top cable manufacturer - and asked them for a cable that would sound good, look good, and last a long time. They recommended these 20 gauge woven cloth cables tipped by their best 1/4" mono plugs with gold-plated contacts. Pay attention to those details! First the cable size is 20 gauge (AWG 20) compared to the smaller 24 gauge used in many guitar cables. The outside of the cable is only slightly larger than a 24 gauge, but the important part is the size of the center conductor that carries the tiny signal from the guitar pickup to your effects board or amplifier. The center conductor on a 20 gauge cable is 60% larger than a 24 gauge, with less than half the resistance (ohms), meaning more signal and less noise gets to your sound. Then there's the woven cloth jacket - it has a great retro look but the real benefit is the way the woven cloth keeps the cable from twisting and tangling. It has a great drape that resists dirt and is really nice to re-coil after a gig. Maybe it's strange to say, but we think you feel more like a pro when you're coiling a nice cable - it just feels good in the hand. It's a small thing, but isn't life just one long series of small things?
Finally there are Kirlin's custom plugs with gold-plated connectors. The gold-plating ensures the best possible electrical connection to the jack, and the heavy duty molded metal plug barrels are built tough and protect the heat-shrinked connections and strain reliefs connecting the cable to the plug. These cables come with a Five-Year Limited Warranty so buy with confidence. We get these cables imported in bulk from Kirlin but instead of plastic or paper packaging we get a free Velcro cable tie, so what you'll receive from us looks just like the first photo above. When we ship them we just put in a small sheet of foam padding in the box so it's very eco-friendly. So you get the cable and a free Velcro cable tie (see third photo). Ok, a Velcro cable tie isn't a real big deal, but you'll probably find that it's a handy way to keep your cables tidy and neat.
