have patience..it will be worth it.
I got a massive bundle of these from a friendly welsh lad on ebay. I paid £110 posted for 26 plugs, a load of cable and the jackets and wots not. making the cables is a doddle, only 50% of them worked first time but I noticed that there's a few steps that make a better connection. like cutting the cable with a Stanley knife instead of snips, and allowing the cable to fall as you screw the cap on instead of holding it at the end angle (the cap cuts a slither of outer away to ground the cable). I almost lost my temper and was looking for the cat to take it out on, but then after a few goes it becomes second nature. also get a multimeter to test them. rubbing your crotch against your amp trying to get a note from a guitar and a 2" patch cable is a bit uncomfortable. especially when my other half has questioned my relationships with musical equipment in the past... aesthetically they are tidy once cut to length and mine are the red so there's a bit of pop from the darkened board. they are .155 gauge so super flexible and slim too. sound wise, after all the messing about making them work and practicing the right methods they are worth it. I can definitely hear a difference in tone using these instead of the old tramps bootlace jobs I was using before. these are dear but if you're looking for the final steps in finishing a pedal board off and your more ocd than a German schedule, these are a good investment. now that my ears have sampled these I don't see me ever using anything else. I've been using them for about 2 months and had no issues. I've heard of people using locktite and that to prevent the screws from slipping out of the plugs but I think the jackets (£1.25- 1.50 a piece but my set come with them...) prevent that problem. you cant put a price on tone....
