Frequently Asked Questions about Guitar Cables

A high quality guitar cable will preserve your tone fully but what it will not do is 'increase' your tone or anything like that. Cables cannot really 'add' anything to your sound: what you are looking to do with a cable is keep as much of your tone intact as possible. Cheaper cables will rob you of signal strength and certain frequencies so the aim is to avoid that more than anything else.
We think a shorter cable in the studio makes sense, especially if you are situated close to your computer whilst you record. A shorter cable will keep more of your signal strength and, unlike a live performance, your recordings are permanent documents for your art so you really want to put down the best tones possible. The best case scenario in our opinion is to use a 10ft cable for recording and a longer cable for gigging.
Well, this is a hotly debated topic. Instead of covering every conceivable angle here, we'll simply tell you what we think. If you use pedals, we think a 10-15ft cable into the first pedal is perfect for most stages, followed by at least 15ft between the final pedal and the amp. But what about loss of signal? Yes, yes, we know. You will lose a tiny bit of signal but your audience is going to notice your tiny cable being pulled taught and bringing your amp crashing to the floor much quicker than they'll detect a few dB less gain on your signal, trust us. We don't think you often need more than a 20ft cable though. Whether going straight into an amp or not, 20ft should be the longest instrument cable length you need to buy.
