better than the rest?

By studioman2446

from los angeles, CA

Comments about Livewire Elite Instrument Cable:

I own my own studio and have been fooling around with a bunch of cables to find the best sound, the least amount of noise and is the best value. I own and have tried mogami, monster, elixir cables and i believe even counting this live wire elite cable in the mix that the elixir cable was really the best. but I do belive after using these to run as connectors in my studio that these are just as good (if not better) than the mogami and monster cables. And although i think the elixer is better, these cables will get the job done and cost about half as much. helps save money for toys for the studio that really matter.

    Comments about Livewire Elite Instrument Cable:

    The LiveWire Elites let the sound of your instrument flow from your loudspeakers without being colored by the cable, you hear your pickups as they were intended to be heard. A little stiff because of the large wire, but still plenty flexible to be usable in just about any environment. If you buy cheap cables because you think there is no difference, then do a direct comparison and be prepared to be blown away.

        Comments about Livewire Elite Instrument Cable:

        These are exceptionally well made, and surprisingly good sounding cables. They're 100% honest, they don't seem to accentuate any frequencies coming from the guitar at all, they reproduce the strings very accurately. The cable helps the guitars natural sound to come through, and I feel much more connected to the sound coming out of my amp now that there's less exaggerated frequencies. Also, there's considerably less static noise with my single coil pickups, which are texas specials. I found the cable to be flexible, but it doesn't "coil up" as easily as my other cables. All that means is when I'm not using the cable it doesn't look as neatly coiled up as some other cables. I love the neutrik tips, they fit in the guitar and amp seamlessly. They're probably one of my favorite aspects of the cable as I've had cables before that were extremely stubborn plugging in/out of my guitar or amp. Also, price is very reasonable for what I paid for. All in all I really like this cable, the only thing they could improve upon is the flexibility, but other than that I'm 100% satisfied, and would recommend this cable.

            Comments about Livewire Elite Instrument Cable:

            I had some noise problems and I had bought 1 (pricey and unknown if quality was good enough) of these cables as a test to see if it would resolve my problem. It did, so I ordered another another one for the other channel. Worth the money, nicely made and has good connector with strain relief. I will most likely be buying more of these as I go along for other instruments.

              Livewire is a quality product. Yes, You will pay more for these but you get what you pay for in this case. I have many sets of live wire cables, instrument as well as speaker etc. They are lifetime guaranteed, so how can you go wrong. There is no distortion or buzzing with these products. They are the only cables to own in my opinion

                    Absolutely great cables, very heavy duty thick cable with quality plugs.
                    Absolutely silent. I cannot speak to the longevity, but i did buy the elite speaker cables for my cabs a yr or so ago and they are great too.

                                This is my second nice first cable. I bought one right before CHristmas and they really are cleaner and more solid than the standard guitar store bin which is what I've always used. So I bought this one along with my LR Baggs Venue DI to keep the chain clean to my mixer.

                                It's sonically very nice. Much hotter than a standard cable and cleaner too. It is so solid that it feels heavy duty, but almost to a fault. It doesn't tangle necessarily but it doesn't run smoothly either.

                                    Online is easy to use. Service is fast. By phone service is very helpful, often making alternative suggestions that really work well for what I want. Won't use any other order site.
