I've been debating whether or not to switch out my Hosa patch cords on my pedalboard for solid couplers. It seems to me that the solid ones would have less capacitance and less signal loss, due to their cable-less design. I recently switched my instrument cables for Monster Jazz's and now I feel like the patch cords I'm using are a weak link in my signal chain. Does anyone have any experience with the solid type couplers or have any suggestions for some larger guage patch cords? I have been eyeballing the George L's but I was hoping I could find a cheaper solution. Thanks in advance.
