I’ve got a couple of cables for plugging in my guitars to amp/interface; they’re Monster brand, and I paid about US$20 each for them a couple of years ago. They’re both starting to get crackly and buzzy, and it won’t be long before they’re no longer usable.
How much does one have to spend to get a good cable that won’t deteriorate like this in so short a time? Or is this normal? What brands would you recommend? I’m OK with spending a bit of money on something that is good and that will last. Thanks!
(And just to pre-empt, I don’t have the ability to try to repair these with solder or whatever… lack the tools, workspace, and skill to do so.)
