OK, so I have our sound tech make me a cable. I wanted a shorter one to go from my bass (passive Aero's) to my DI (Fishman Platinum Pro) to my amp. I used Canare cable with Neutrik connectors. There was some sound diff, but that's not what's weird, here is: When I plug in with the new cable (all other variables are the same), I have no taper on my volume pot on the bass. I have a master volume, and with this cable I seem to have 2 settings. Full on, or anything less than full on (like backing off just a bit on the master volume), and the level immediately goes down to perhaps 25% and will stay there unless I am full off. Wha-? I don't get it. The cable works....but...? A polarity issue? I dunno, neither the tech or I have ever encountered this.
