"Definitely worth getting, I was gladly suprised! Cables do matter!"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I needed a better cable, one that didn't massively hum and was not always coming apart at the connection. Mogami gold was always a consideration, so I thought, the reviews are pretty positive. I got the 18foot cable.
I was very curious and really wondering, will this really be a difference? So, with my old local store cable, I played clean and distorted sample and lead tone, JUST to remember what I was working with, and then plugged in my new Mogami Gold, BIG difference, clearer, is the one word I would use. Playing guitar, pickups and amps always were the main features for sound as I always thought, but the cable does add some value to the sound clarity, and now I am a believer. I will not buy anything less than from now on. Recording wise, I also heard a difference as well. Now, does it hum, no not openly, but touching it will produce a smaller volume hum, but it not the annoying crackling and humming you get with the cheaper cable. So, its not purely hummless lol, but a HUGE improvement.
The cable came in its usual plastic package, but I had to carefully remove it from it because the plastic casing is very tight and secure, you could easily damage the cable trying to pull it out without opening it properly.
Ease of Use
Plugged it in, very easy. I liked the gold on it, and the one I got was the right angle and straight one, it has a tight fit, and secure, very nice.
Very nice, well made, I can see why the professionals use these.
Well, not sure if I can rate this well enough, I am paying for the quality of the product, and after pricing many cables, I read an interview on a professional guitar jazz player, and then another one with a blues player, and both stated, yeah, never use anything less than the Mogami Gold. Value is in the tone/sound clarity, and not having a crappy cable.
Not yet, but I think I could get a hold of them easy enough.
The Wow Factor
I was surprised, but not wowed, and I am easily wowed lol, but this worked as advertised, so I am more happy that I have a cable that makes my music and playing sound the way it should through the rig I have. Anything to help with the overall sound, and this is definitely a part of it. I would have never thought so before, but it is. If you are curious or wondering, meh, not worth it, try one, you will be happily surprised!
