I was a bit dissapointed in the instructions as there were no pictures and they just seemed a little vague. But I charged ahead. I wired the first one and then checked it by plugging one end into a guitar and the other into a tuner... Nothing. Tried to fix it, nothing. Gave up and moved on to the next one.. Didn't work. I completed 3 and none of them worked. My wife and the dogs left the room because I was starting to yell and cuss. Then I read the instructions one more time and tried to follow them exactly.. success!! I went back and re-did the other 3 and they too worked like a charm. Once you get the hang of it, it couldn't be simpler. My biggest suprise was the clear sound from my rig. My Strat has never sounded so clear!! I just wish they included more plugs. There are only enough for 6 pedals. So now I will have to buy another kit since I have 8 pedals. But these things are definitely worth it... Just have patience until you get the hang of it.

I own and use the black George L instrument cables and love them. I think it was my loyalty to these that kept me from admitting that these pedal cables are a total rip off! Do yourself a favor and steer clear of these unless you want to have random and uncontrollable crackles and loss of sound while playing live.
I have attempted to use these for around two years. Every month or so I have had to trim the tips of the cables a little more to remove the torn portion that the bolt digs into. I started doing this when the cables would produce a crackle sound. Needless to say this crackle sound greatly diminishes the overall sound quality of the live performance.
This is an expensive way to make you sound horible.

Pain in the butt (George L's Vintage Red Effects Cable Kit)

By Robert Landry

from Undisclosed

See all my reviews

Comments about George L's Vintage Red Effects Cable Kit:

After investing a lot into my latest pedal board I decided it was time to step up and get a uniform cable system. After some research, I purchased George L cables, What A Mistake!!! I am constantly dealing with bad cable connections. I'll play for a couple hours at my house, pack my board into it's flight case, get to a gig and then spend the next 30min to an hour on the floor playing find the short.
The cable ends are extremely bulky and take up valuable real estate on your pedal board..
Quality is fine as long as you don't mine searhing for shorted cables everytime you set-up....
Ridiculously Priced... For cable that often fail....

perfect for the neat-freaks out there

Comments about George L's Vintage Red Effects Cable Kit:

if you have a cluttered up mess, this is the product for you. this pack comes with enough cable to rig two pedalboards. there are only two negatives... it could come with a few more sets of plugs... and they should just throw away the cap screws and lower the price. in reguards to the horrible review... i would recommend using the rubber caps and a few nerve pills to calm down. screwing the caps screws snug tears into the cable shielding and grounds your connection. that being said, there is no buzz at all. excellent product.

Piece a Cake

Comments about George L's Vintage Red Effects Cable Kit:

These are the best sounding pedal cables period. Very transparent and no signal loss. They were very easy to assemble, I wired up ten cables (two sets)in about twenty minutes and they worked great. For the guys who couldn't get them to work... Really push the cable in hard, bend it over and twist on the caps. Presto! The hardest part was putting on the rubber caps and how hard can that be.

These cables are great.

By WilsonGalenstein

from Cincinnati Oh

Comments about George L's Vintage Red Effects Cable Kit:

I've just compleated my chain today, I'd say the sound is twice as loud and clear. Sure the price is high but if you want your pedalboard nice and compact, this is the way to go. Oh I also switch out pedals all the time and the cable never cuts out, you have to realy push them into the jack to make a snug connection, to prob.

Comments about George L's Vintage Red Effects Cable Kit:

Well, I finally realized that good gear isn't nearly as effective without good cables. DUH! What took me so long to figure that one out? The George L's are great, are easy to use and they really improved the sound from my modest rig. They were very easy to assemble, and my pedal board is now very neat. I definitely recommend these cables. I bought a couple of George L's instrument as well, and now I have a great signal and great sound from guitar to amp.

      Great sound and easy to do

      By Mikey189er

      from Pembroke, MA

      Comments about George L's Vintage Red Effects Cable Kit:

      Extremely easy to do and they sound friggin fantastic...however, it took me about half an hour to actually figure out the directions. When I did figure out how to do it, I felt very stupid for not figuring it out in about 2 minutes, which is how long it really should take. I recommend this product.

      Comments about George L's Vintage Red Effects Cable Kit:

      I Just got the cable kit and it's taken two days to get all of it to work well and the cables are still noisy. Would have be faster to build a set the old way with solder iron and solder.

      Best Pedal Board cables made

      By Ryan-IYgJb

      from Owensboro, KY

      Comments about George L's Vintage Red Effects Cable Kit:

      Two years ago I setup a new pedal board and tried several different patch cable configurations. I was always having to change out cables so I bought a set of the George L's. By far these have the best sound and quality of anything out there. I haven't had to touch them since I put them in two years ago. They are great!

      i like them

      By davemanica

      from Marietta, GA

      Comments about George L's Vintage Red Effects Cable Kit:

      After adding a few pedals that I didn't normally use to support my cover band (chorus, wah-wah) I realized that my sound was bad with the patch cables that I was using. I researched and bought these and they really improved the sound off the bat.They have more treble than I was used to, but after adjusting my amp I see them as opening the bandwidth on the tone. Easy to build, I just used sissors and pushed them in like the instructions said. No issues since, except to re-tighten the screws. I would suggest that you use the rubber covers to keep the screws from being "unscrewed".

      Comments about George L's Vintage Red Effects Cable Kit:

      despite other people's reviews, i find this cable very good. the claims of the cable and connections not working is simply because it was not put together correctly. if the cable isn't put all the way into the connection, it doesn't work. yoo have to unscrew the little screw on the plug, put it in, and twist it a little bit. it's really nice and convenient. i use it on my pedalboard and i enjoy the ability to adjust the length.

      The best rack gear connectors!

      By t. curren

      from Arcata, CA

      See all my reviews

      Comments about George L's Vintage Red Effects Cable Kit:

      If you have rack gear try these. I originally bought these as stomp box connectors, and thought that they were pricey for that. I've moved to a modular, rack mounted, pre-amp, effects, more effects, power amp set-up, and the G.L.'s Vintage are the best connector by far. Why? They're SHIELDED, you can make CUSTOM LENGTHS (many stomp box connectors are far too short) and individual plugs are available, the right angle plug is very COMPACT, and the special screw cap on it lets one pull it out by the plug (how you're supposed to, not the cord). I've never gotten unwanted signals or noise with these, and as they go together without solder, they're inherently "field servicable." Their quality and utility easily justifies the price.[Do not use as speaker wires.]

      Get The Black Ones

      By Dustin-gWWaj

      from White Rock SC

      Comments about George L's Vintage Red Effects Cable Kit:

      First of all these cables are terrific, they are very easy to put together and sound great, "No feedback or nothing." The only problem with mine is that I got the vintage red cables, "To stand out more than than the black ones," But when they came to my door, They were PINK!! If you play punk rock then that might be appealing to you, but I play metal! So I would reccomend the black cables, because you don't know what you are going to get with the vintage red ones.

      Comments about George L's Vintage Red Effects Cable Kit:

      My wife gave me the Vintage cable kit for Christmas, and I must tell you that my pedalboard has never been neater, or, sonically, cleaner. I don't know what directions some of the other reviewers were following, but the ones printed on the package worked perfectly the first time out. Nothing could have been simpler. Custom cables in under two minutes! WOW! Imagine how handy this would be at a gig: no wandering soldering irons to wait for or burn. Worth every penny.

      Comments about George L's Vintage Red Effects Cable Kit:

      I have been a full-time professional for 40 years and George L cables have gotten me through thousands of gigs. There is nothing on the market that is easier to work with and sounds as good. You can make your cables any length you need. There is no soldering required. A broken cable on stage can be fixed in about a minute or less. One of the few things out there that is worth the money and then some.

      Total Garbage

      By Brian T Scott

      from Hebron, MD

      Comments about George L's Vintage Red Effects Cable Kit:

      I bought 2 sets of these. A complete waste of 100 bucks. When they *actually* work, they are great... which is about 5 percent of the time. They are never consistant, you make of custom length cable.. if it doesnt work you have to cut more... and this cable is not cheap! The connections are not easy to use. The instructions on proper assembly are vague at best. I called them to get proper instruction.. and they even admitted it. If you got money to burn, and the patience of Job, these are for you. I will never... ever.. be duped by old George again!
