    I voted for 20, but it's actually 18.

    The longer it is the more highs you lose.

    If you run fx before the input, you're going to lose some signal and increase the noise level, too.

    I checked 20' because I like to have more than I'll need.

    I only have a 10ft cord. So thats what I use. Ive only got a 15 watt amp so its not like its a beast. And I usually just hide in my room and play....*rocks back and forth* parents not find me parents not find me parents not find me

    Samson wireless. It'll go for at least 100 feet but too far off the stage and the audio delay kicks in.

    12', but I could get by with less. I'm right near the amp and the console.

    More often than not 12' is too much, but if I decide to mic the amp outside the room it comes in handy.

    About 300'..... I always use a wireless. Its to the point now that when I plug in with a cord I'll walk off and knock everything over.
