Is there a difference between guitar and bass cables?
Do you need to buy a specific cable for bass guitar? In short: There is no real difference between bass and guitar cables. Some manufacturers will argue very subtle differences due to differences in capacitance, but these will only make the slightest difference, not noticeable to most people’s ears.
Are gold guitar cables better?
A commonly held belief among guitar players is that gold-plated connectors are somehow superior to nickel or silver. But the truth is, gold is only better because it’s less-corrosive, and lasts longer without tarnishing. Which gives the cable a longer lifespan.
Do cheap guitar cables affect tone?
The electrical resistance of a guitar cable is insignificantly tiny compared with the impedance of the pickups and controls, so that won’t affect your tone a great deal, but cable capacitance is another matter altogether.
