    I've never had a single problem with George L's cables... NOT ONE ISSUE, EVER!!! I bought a kit from Robert Keeley's site about 3 years ago. Ordered the 0.155" cable with gold right angle connectors and stress relief jackets. Took me about 30 minutes to make 10 six inch cables. Plugged in and that was it. My board has been taken apart and changed around dozens of times over the last few years, cables have been added and removed 100's of times, still no problems with sound or connectivity.My advice to all the folks who complain about how the connections fail or how difficult it is to assemble the cables... order a couple of George L's pre-packaged cables... I really don't know how anyone could complain about the quality and sound of these cables. Go ahead and A/B test George L's with any of the Hosa, ProCo, Core X2, Planet Waves, etc... really any mass-marketed cables that are available... you will hear a real, audible, difference. The only complaint I have is the high cost, which is well above any other pedalboard cable products, but I also priced out 10 custom made cables from Redco, using gold Switchcraft right angle plugs and Mogami cable and ended up $10 higher. Also, those "stress relief jackets", they certainly don't relieve any cable-to-jack stress. They're just colored covers, you don't need them, get them only if you're into aesthetics.

    I kept ready so many good things about these cables so I finally broke down and spent the money for the pedal board kit. The first few cables were fine then I started getting shorts in them. I would test them and find that the jacket connection was but the pole connection would not seat.
    I followed the instructions meticulously being sure not to press down on the cable while I screwed the cap on the jack.
    Very unreliable and difficult to assemble
    Way to expensive for something that doesn't work consistently

    Comments about George L's Effects Pedal Cable Kit:

    After reading countless reviews and wanting to do it right the first time, I'm glad I chose wisely. Using this patch kit along with a Voodoo Labs PP-2 has produced the results we're all after: Clean signal chain and no extraneous noise or hum. Watched a George L tutorial how-to on Youtube and got it right the first time.

        Comments about George L's Effects Pedal Cable Kit:

        Very straight forward to measure, cut, and assemble. Agree with recommendations about using a blade and not a wire cutter to cut the cable. (My wire cutter pinched slightly and I had to re-assemble two of the cables--my fault, not George L's.) Make sure to test each one before installing in pedal board. (I just plugged one end into my amp and touched the opposite end with my finger.) Also, the instructions are easy to misunderstand if you don't read closely--you DO push the cable into the end-jack to seat it in the pin, but you DO NOT bend all the way down after that because the end cap needs the resistance to pierce the shielding and ground the connection.

        The .155 cables are EXCELLENT for pedal boards. Their slim profile leaves much more space than bulky 6-8" patch cables, and the customizable length gives you many more options for pedal location. And yes, I did hear a difference. They sound excellent.

              Comments about George L's Effects Pedal Cable Kit:

              I was assembling a pedalboard using the PedalTrain PT-Pro with a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2+, so I needed cables that I could use to connect my collection of pedals with as little mess as possible with cables. I was introduced to George L cables at NAMM, so I decided to go ahead and purchase these after seeing how customize-able they are. I was nervous because I was afraid that I would have issues assembling the cables, especially cutting them correctly. I was immensely relieved once I started putting them together.

              The cables are extremely easy to assemble, and the process is much simpler than it might seem to some. I used a box cutter and a cutting board to ensure that I cut the cables straight. I tightened the caps gently, and after testing every single cable with a multimeter I found that every single one worked. When I plugged into my amp, I noticed a fairly obvious change in my tone, and it was a good change. Not only are these cables easy to assemble, but they help to improve your tone as well.

              I will most definitely continue to buy more of this kit as I get more pedals and boards.

                  I was a little hesitant when I bought this (I am a soldering guy). It is much easier to set up than I expected. Perhaps the most difficult part is cutting the ends straight, however with the right tools this is pretty much piece of cake.

                  One can cut the cable to the desired length, which is an obvious advantage over ready-to-go cables. I have been moving the cables around, switching them between pedals etc. I haven't seen yet any disadvantage of this being solderless, or having a thin wire.

                      Easy to use. Cleaned up my board and you really can hear a different sound quality, though I was skeptical before I purchased. I have only used the cables for one job, so I cant comment on longevity. A little pricey, but if they last they will be well worth it.

                            9 out of 10 right-angle jacks were okay. One was defective.

                            The kit is great. Cut wire with a razor, straight cut, no angle, no stripping, don't cut with wire cutters. Then simply push the wire all the way into the jack. With your finger, bend the wire just enough so you can screw the cap on.

                            The screwing action of the cap against the cable sheath cuts it, and connects with the negative (outer) conductor. This is common.

                            The positive connection is made by pushing the cable all the way in. There is a small (looks like) plastic insert, with a pin hole in it. The center conductor makes contact with the metal, and the plastic insulates the common.

                            The defective plug's plastic insert wasn't deep enough. It was impossible to push the wire in far enough so it would make contact. And it kept popping loose while screwing the cap on.

                            I'll use these again because they're easy to assemble, sound quality is great, and they are compact and flexible -- great for a crowded pedal board. But because of the defect, I now perform a quick continuity test with a multimeter after each cable is assembled. Easier than tracking down a break "somewhere" in the whole signal chain.

                            Bought this for my pedal board, I wanted to put George L's through the whole circuit since they're such a good cable company. The directions said DONT push the cable into the metal part. the cable wont work otherwise, you DO have to push the cable into the end a little bit. ALSO dont cut your cables with scissors or a wire cutter, use a box cutter (or a razor blade tool thing) and a cutting board. you'll get better cuts.

                                So here is what you need to know about George L's before you buy: 1.) they sound incredible 2.) YOU CAN'T CUT THE CABLE WITH WIRE CUTTERS!!!!!! It pinches the cable and it won't work. The only way to cut the cables is with a razor blade. If you do it this way, you won't run into any issues. 3.) They will come unscrewed through wear and tear on your pedalboard. There is short term and a long term way to fix this: short term: screw it back in and make sure it's snug. Long term: buy a plumer's seal appoxy at your local hardware store and put it on all the threads. Let me say this, I've tried other cables, but nothing has the sound quality of these guys.... They're wonderful.

                                  These cables are extremely easy to use. It is as simple as unscrewing the back, cut the cable to desired length, put the cable in the connector, then screw on the back. That's it! I didn't have any problems making these cables. The only thing that I would recommend is getting a pair of good wire cutters and making your cuts as fast as possible. I found that if you cut the cable faster, your cuts will be much cleaner. Lastly I would like to say that my guitar tone improved greatly just by switching to these cables. Don't listen to the negative reviews, these cables are amazing! Buy some, you won't regret it.
