Last night, I realized my 2 foot stereo cable that I use between my K&K Bassmaster Pro and the K&K preamp mounted on my tailpiece was missing. The show must go on, so I replaced it temporarily with a 1 foot MONSTER cable (the gold expensive kind) that I usually use between my MDB-1 and my tuner. Even though this cable was mono (which meant I was only getting output from the Quad I think), it sounded *great*. FAR better than usual. So I am wondering - is this because of the shorter/better cable? Sounds plausible...or is it because for some reason the one pickup sounds better by itself? I am trying to figure out if I need to start looking for a stereo monster cable, or if I should stick with the mono one since it sounds so darn good. Let me qualify all of this by saying that I lost the original stereo cable that came with the K&K a long time ago, so this is a replacement stereo cable that I lost.
