    Good cables, some innovative designs, impossible to fix.

    I almost lost a Planet Waves cable to a $2000 Martin guitar. The dang thing would not come out. Even with one person pulling as hard as he could on the guitar while I pulled the cable.

    Ummm no...that's not a good thing. Some Planetwave 1/4" cables are oversized for a tighter fit in the jack. This can make a better connection or get stuck.

    I wasn't aware of the different connectors, but this cable had gold tips at least. Maybe avoid those ones?

    Tips-connectors, im in the wrong. i assumed the tips were the connectors, dont know much about cables. anyhow, theres ones with gold TIPS and ones with silver tips. gold ones are are more expensive.

    Also. if i had a gold planet waves mic cable, 2 gold planet waves speaker cables and then a hosa 1m cable to connect my preamp to soundcard. would that hosa cable degrade the sound quality. its just these planet waves cables are a bit pricey.
    Thanks

    Talking

    As long as the ends are connected properly, the cable will NOT degrade the signal. The reason for buying (or making) better cables is in the integrity of the shield and the quality of the soldering. All conductors act the same.
