"Everything's a cable. We run a stereo cable or a tip-ring sleeve cable for the electrics, and then back at the rig it splits out between electric and the piezo acoustic signal. We use Mogami cables with Neutrik ends all custom made for him by Mike Snyder who builds all the rigs," says John Petrucci's guitar tech.more
I had one of these. It must have been pretty good because someone snatched it while I was packing up after a bar gig in MD along with one of my homebrews. Has a tendency to tangle as you prance around. Fine on cramped stages with limited prancing space hence why I took it to a bar gig.
I switched to these Mogami cables when I caught wind that Monster was discontinuing its lifetime warranty on their products. Though Mogami charges a pretty penny for their product, they're quality pieces. There is a clear difference in sound between these cables and the cables that I was once playing. And if these cables break, they carry the lifetime warranty that Monster once carried. If you care about your tone, pick up Mogami cables.
They are expensive but if you have expensive gear you need expensive cables. I own 3 12' cables and I also own 3 6" patch cables for my pedal board. Will not buy anything else since I've used these.
So clear, so clean, so crisp and pristine. If you really want your tone to get through and you want to eliminate cable noise, this is what you get. Not the first piece of gear to buy if you are building your rig, but this is the icing on the cake once you have a setup you like.
