In Part 4 in this series on Setting Up Your Guitar Pedalboard I mentioned a guitar cable “shoot out” I did in 2005. I compared four great, popular guitar cables and in the end, I finally chose Mogami instrument cable for my guitar set up.
That instrument cable was Mogami’s Gold Cable (also know as 2524 cable).
I began using this cable in 2005 for all my cable needs—from my guitar into the pedalboard; from the pedalboard into the amp; from the time-based effects into the effects loop (send and return); and from the last stereo effect on my board into a second amp for stereo.
Five cables total, and the sound was unbelievable.
I assumed I would use this cable forever because I had never heard anything as brilliant. Well, that all changed in 2010 when I got from my friends at Mogami, the Mogami Platinum.
Somehow, someway, they have done it again, and created even a better cable than the Mogami Gold.
I guess they started shipping this cable in 2006 but again, because of my love for the Gold cable, I wasn’t looking for anything new. After chatting a bit with them over the years I thought I would give the Platinum a try.
In a word—stunning.
This is the most beautiful, transparent, quiet, tonally brilliant cable I’ve ever used, even more than the Gold (2524).
Now, I’ve replaced my five Gold cables with Platinum and couldn’t be happier (I still have all of my Gold cables: The students at my music school use these daily).
In these past few decades I’ve been playing, most of my gear has remained the same: A Tom Anderson strat and Tom Anderson tele; a Taylor 612-CE (retrofitted by Greg Back with the Buzz Feiten Tuning System); two Mesa Boogie Mark IVs; Elixir Strings; too many pedals to name!; and Mogami cable.
All of these pieces for me add up to a beautiful tone. The Mogami cable is just as important as all the other pieces of gear.
What a difference a cable can make. Try the Mogami Platinum. You will simply love your tone.
