OK... I take care of my cables. Roll/wind them up correctly EVERY time I am done using them. I have had these particular cables for about 10-12 years but they didn't get an enormous amount of use. Gigging a couple times/month and maybe practice/rehearsal once a week. They are quality cables by Fulltone. They do not make these anymore. I see that Orange has a cable that claims not to tangle called "Twister" cables. Not sure I want to spend $80 on a 20" cable though. Does anyone have a cable that doesn't tangle up on them? Suggestions? Thanks!!!
