    im on a pretty tight budget.

    Thanks to [user]AVkid[/user], I've been very happy with Audiopile. I've also been very pleased with cables from Conquest Sound. Whirlwind is probably the largest company and has many grades from which to choose. Their top of the line stuff is pricey, but not outrageous.

    I've never used Seismic Audio, so can't comment on them. Avoid MI/music stores for your pro-audio needs.

    What type of show do you plan on using this gear for? How durable does it need to be? Tell us what you need and we can tell you if this will work for you.

    im just using them for "home use" so i dont need anything fancy. the last cables i bought really sucked, so i just want to make sure these will last longer. the other ones i bought in a bulk pack of 10 most gave out in the 1st month or so...ive fixed some of them, but id rather not use them because they are unreiable.

    and i hope to be getting an fx processer, and a new graphic EQ within the next 6-8 months so i will need some shorter patch cables for those.

    thanks again

    We really like our cables from sweetwater.com - they work well and are quite durable.

    I get all of my cables from CBICables.com... You can find a local retailer in your area that carrys them. They are great, tough and rugged.

    And they come with a warrenty, I know its at least a 5 year warrenty. If the cable breaks, just send it over to them, they will fix it and ship it back to you. It's awesome!
