Over the years I've gravitated toward Planet wave cables, and not the fancy ones with on off switches and decoupling, just plain cables. More money, but my cables are all going on 20 yrs. and all of them still work just like I bought them. I also tend to stay away from the screw on sleeve cover type with the metal sleeve. They just seem to wear out faster and break at the solder connections.

I have about six cables and they all sound different from each other.

I don't know about Reverb cables, but I would love to have that Coblat blue Baretta he's demonstrating with.....;-) Misspelling intentional....

One last comment.....

If you're in a band....

There's a significant savings (~35%) to be had if all the members throw $50 in a pot and you buy a bulk spindle, quality connectors, shrink wrap, wire stripper/multitool, and a soldering kit.

Same goes for XLR and speaker wire.

I use a Livewire Advantage cable as shown in the link below. I have been using one of their 20 foot cables for over 10 years and 300 gigs...so far, so good. They offer a lifetime guarantee, but I haven't had to exercise that yet. No one has ever commented on how spectacular my guitar cable sounds, but I have never received any negative comments about it either. I like it fine.

I think this may have already been spoken, but a guitar cable that thumps through the amp when tossed around the stage or floor is one that needs the trash bin...That's a usual sign of a poorly made, insulated and operating cable.
