After running a search in this forum, I didn't really see what I was looking for, so.... Okay, a little background for people not following my massive bloodletting of money over the last couple of months. I have recently upgraded my rig to include 2 Aguilar GS112s, an Alembic SF-2 Superfilter, and (on the way from Gard) an Aguilar DB750. I've got two Speakon to Speakon cables coming with the head, so I've got the Amp to Cab link covered. I'm really looking forward to those 4 satisfying 'clicks' when I plug them up. Sad, huh? Anyway, I'm going to run the SF-2 through the effects loop of the Aguilar, and I am trying to decided what cords to pick up for the job. I've got a George L 12' for the bass to amp connection that I think is great. It's skinny, but it honestly has a clearer tone than the cable I replaced (DiMarzio, I belive). After spending $2K on the rest of the rig, it just doesn't make sense to skimp on the cables, ya know? But, do I really need to spend $35-$50 on two 3' Monster cables? I used a 20' Monster Cable in college, and the only thing I seem to remember about it was that it died twice (crackle, crackle), and I got sick of getting it replaced. I am not rough on my cords, and the Monster Cable is the only one I have killed in over 17 years of playing (Jezz, I'm getting old...). Does anyone have any recommendations for some high quality patch cords to use for the effects loop? Or, is the distance so short that it really doesn't matter?
