Acheté chez Audiotubetech, qui le préconise pour les LIAISONS FIXES (studio, racks). Je les utilise dans mon rack, j'en suis très content.

Je met 10 pour le son mais je mettrai 2 pour la robustesse.

C'est à mon sens une des meilleures marques de câbles instrument, le son est chaleureux, tout est là, vraiment rien à dire sur ce point. (utilisé avec une sept cordes dans un mesa).

Le gros point noir de ces câbles (j'en ai eu deux) c'est leur solidité, aucun ne m'a duré plus d'un an avant de faire des petites coupures dans le son (genre courts circuits ou alors câble coupé dedans). Alors certes je les balade beaucoup mais le même traitement infligé à des whirlwind ou à des planet waves ne les fait pas broncher et ce depuis plusieurs années (10 ans pour les whirlwind).

J'en déduis donc que c'est un excellent choix pour du studio ou pour jouer à la maison sans marcher dessus et que pour le reste il vaut mieux viser d'autres marques avec lesquelles on a moins de mauvaises surprises.
Live ou en répétition, à moins d'avoir les ingénieurs son de pink floyd le changement de câble s'entend pas énormément à la finale entre deux marques un peu haut de gamme.

Je viens de recevoir mon câble George L's, cadeau d'un copain canadien. Par rapport à mon ancien câble (de bonne qualité) c'est le jour et la nuit : les basses ont gagné en attaque, le son est moins boueux. Les aigues et les mid sont plus détachés, plus aériens, plus clean.
Je joue avec une Telecaster montée avec 3 Seymour Duncan Vintage Rail (façon Strat), sur un Fender Hot Rod Deluxe. Je suis en train de vendre cet ampli que je trouve trop "claquant" en son clair, mais avec ce câble, je me demande si je ne vais pas lui donner une deuxième chance.

Mon seul souci : y a t'il un distributeur en France?

Mon conseil : avant de changer d'ampli, changez de câble!!!

I got one of these cables as a demo. I was very surprised as the size of this thing. It was very thin in diameter. Sort of like what my Macbook’s power adapter wire’s size is. Very uniquely thin. The Jack itself is quite good quality, not gold plated or anything fancy like that but sturdy. I tried it out for a few months didn’t find anything very amazing about these cables. They sort of sound like what they look like, if that makes any sense. I’ll try to explain a bit more, the cable’s thin and the signal itself was quite strong and yes, lacked some low midrange and bass. But the presence was there, definitely. But it wasn’t overly bright. It’s sort of like taking a blanket off a speaker sort of sound. But that is not to say that the sound isn’t good, it’s got plenty of upper midrange and still brings your guitar signal out in front. The cable itself is just so thin I’m afraid it’ll snap in half or something! Also, it still tangles, of course it does. The longer it is, the more tangled up it gets. It’s quite an annoying habit with cables of almost all types. Anyhoo, I used the cable for as long as I did and eventually didn’t have it anymore. I can’t remember if I sold it or if I just gave it away to a friend but I did invest in other cables after. Cables to alter the sound of your guitar quite a bit so investing in some good ones and experimenting with different brands and types is always interesting. I didn’t think too much of these cables unfortunately. Though I did like the pedal kit as it saved a lot of space and was very convenient.

I've been playing electric guitars for about 12 years now, and for many of them, I simply used whatever cables I had. These varied in quality and stature from mediocre no name brand cables to some reasonable ones by companies like Yorkville and Planet Waves (average price paid for those was about $15-$25 each). I'd read about these boutique cables like George L's in various magazines like Vintage Guitar and Premier Guitar over the years and with that, read the debates that ranged from "These cables aren't worth the $$," to "Best cables I've ever used... my whole rig is now set up with them!" Because of their high price (about $70 for a 15ft cable) I avoided buying one for many years, partially because I didn't see any problems with my "cheaper" cables, plus I can be hard on cables so as a result they don't always last as long as they should...

Fast forward to December 2010. After reading about them for many years, I received one as a Christmas present (15ft version). I was very excited and curious to finally, after all this time, come up with my own answer to the "cheap vs. expensive cable" debate. I unpacked it from the package and was struck by how well it was constructed. The cable material itself is very high quality and seems very durable as well, which was a problem I had with cheaper cables. It has very nice molded ends with stress jacks as well. Given this presentation, I was hoping that the tone matched up. Did it?


In one word, yes. The minute I plugged it in, I was struck at the difference that it made to my tone. It made the most different to my high end frequencies. With my cheaper cables, it was almost like there was some sort of filter cutting into my high end and making it too muddy. That is not the case with the George L's. All of the frequencies cut through clearly and distinctly, but there is not too much of any one frequency either. It made my rig sound clearer and just plain... better. Definitely impressive. I've been using this cable non-stop since December and definitely plan to buy them exclusively in future. They're costly, but definitely worth it.
