At practice yesterday, my singer made a comment about how tightly I wind my cables when I put them away. He said that "they" recommend that you wrap them in big loops, as opposed to smaller, tighter ones. Let's say I have an 18' cable -- when I am done wrapping it, the coil will be about 5 inches in diameter. I wrap them "tight" because they are easier to secure with a cord lock and they are less likely to tangle with themselves and other cords. My [idiot] guitarist says that wrapping them like I do breaks the smaller wires inside. I say, as long as I wrap 'em the right way (you know, the way a cord "naturally" wants to wrap), what difference does it make? What's your opinion?
