From the amp to the cabinet...what are your favorites??
Phil Jones Bass (www.philjonesbass.com) makes some of the best cables around. From your bass to your rig, there's nothing better than George Ls. When it comes to your rig, use PJB...bottom line!
Klotz cable or similar and Neutrik plugs. As good as it gets and fully serviceable.
I still like the monster cables. I dig the George Ls, but they don't seem to take the pounding... I also like it if my monster cable takes a dump I walk into GC and walk out with a new one for free.
ProCo Guardian Fat Max.
Neutrik plugs/cables own...
Went to ProCo FatMax's a few months ago.....nice stuff with 20 year replacement warranty -
Homemade using Switchcraft and 16 Gauge lamp (zip) cord.
Spectraflex from my bass to my amp. A cable is a cable. Or, it could be that I am not an experienced enough bass player to hear the difference.
Homemade from amp to cabs.
Home made with good cable and good connectors. Unless it is an especially low wattage, or high wattage, use then I use 14ga stranded 2-conductor with the best jacket, insulation, and strain relief that I can get without going nutz.
As for instrument cables it is really up to your ears. Cables have capacitance, capacitance acts as a tone control. Too much capacitance makes your cable into a fixed tone control, cutting highs and maybe more. I like Canare GS-6 and good connectors like Neutrik or Canare. They really do sound better. I started using these materials for high impedae interconnects and they happen to make first-class instrument cables without a huge price tag.
But if you are rolling off a lot of highs anyhow it won't be a big deal.
