Tone Tuesday

Does Cable Length Really Matter For Guitar?


Oct 7th, 2014

I didn't really pay attention to my cables until I'd been playing for over 15 years. But once I heard the difference, it was very hard to ignore. In this video I'll show you very clearly how your tone changes as cable length increases. We'll look at cables from 10' to 75' and you might be surprised at how much tone is lost.

We'll also talk about how to evaluate if that tone loss should matter to you. Some people actually prefer the sound of long cables. If you've never had the chance to compare guitar cables of different lengths, this video will open your eyes (or ears).
