This was a first for me. But the other weekend I subbed for a bass player in one of his cover bands. With this gtrd in it, who likes to move around a lot on stage. Now, as a gearhead, he had lots of effects on his pedalboard, but one instrument cable that was designed like a shower hose, with steel "rings" around it, so it'll never "bend" so to speak. Lasts forever it seems. I wondered what brand it was, but he couldn't tell me. Now, after a break between sets, the singer steps on to the darkly lit stage, and happen to step right on above this cable (which is probably made to be immune to stepping on in the first place) and took a fall, and cut up a jack on her forehead, bleeding all over the stage, and needed to be rushed to hospital and get stitched. We had to cancel the rest of the gig. I try to find a pic of such cable on the net now, but don't know what they're called, and don't know which brand. But from now on, such idiotic designed cables must be removed from market! It's now forbidden in any rehearsal space if I can help it, that I am part of. I found absolutely no sonic advantages to that cable and something else regularly made. Seemed that he bought that as a show off thing too. Wonder how many accidents actually occurs at home, with real shower hoses made like that. With water and soap added on top... jeez... It was as stepping on a bunch of marbles. Anyone else seen/used these cables?
