I get them cheap from CPC, but Neutrik connectors, I like those ones that earth the signal until the jack is in
I have one posher cable, can't see the point, it may be a tiny bit brighter, but unless I avoid the pedalboard, what's the point?
I always need extra length ... or so i'm told ...

Only ever had two cables break on me - one was a cheapo Stagg and the other was a Fender. Have used Venom lately with no issues.
I've got at least 6 Venom's needing repair.....
The stuff George l uses is supposed to be about £7 a metre apparently.
The stuff George I used probably only worked with harpsichords and lutes, and £7 in those days was 10 years' wages. (Sorry)
I tend to make my own leads these days from something like Van Damme cable and Neutrik plugs, but I'm not sure they actually sound any better than some of the cheaper Venom etc ones I've got. Nice though. Stripping that Van Damme cable is quite fiddly with its multiple shielding layers, so I'm not surprised at what people charge for making leads up - it takes more than 2 minutes to do it carefully that's for sure. I've never had anything posher so I don't know if there's any advantage to be had in spending silly money - I doubt it though. I do quite like the look of the cloth braided stuff though...
I've had 4 Fender cables - only one of them is still working.I bought several Planet Waves a couple of years ago - they are all still fine...
