Four Great Guitar Leads To Consider

0

Guitar Leads Under The Microscope!

guitar leads

It’s often the case that guitar players will spend a fortune on a guitar, then spend a few dollars on guitar leads. Surely paying a little more will ensure that the signal that comes out of your instrument is as faithful and as strong as it can be. In this way, your sound will be as faithful as it can be to the original. In this review we cast our eye over four great guitar cable contenders.

What are we looking for in a good batch of guitar leads?

So, what really matters when it comes to buying a guitar lead? We’re looking at over all construction for a start. Does the lead feel rugged and able to withstand being abused when on the road of flung in a bag.

Secondly, does it sound great. What we mean by that is, does it not give of any sound…that’s a prerequisite as well.

Does the lead come in at a good length or indeed are multiple sizes available?

Is the lead offered with a lifetime guarantee or is there any other perks to buying a specific band over and above what you would want which is a long lasting cable.

These are just some of the points that we are considering for our review. We’ll also bring up what customers have to say about a specific guitar leads as well to even things out.

Four Guitar Pedalboards Worth A Closer Look

Guitar Pedalboards – Isn’t It Time You Considered Your Options?

guitar pedalboards

If you have a growing range of guitar pedals and effects you’ll probably know that it’s not a good idea to just stuff them all into a bag. It’s not only the fact that they get scraped and damaged, it’s all the tiny and not so small leads that you also need. That’s where guitar pedalboards come in.

A guitar pedalboard keeps all your pedals organised as well as ensuring that lead life is extended as you are not continually pulling leads in and out. Also, it’s a great way of easing the pressure on a gig. Get the pedalboard, plug in and you are ready to play.

We look at four pedalboards that come at a reasonable price and also have a lot of consumer satisfaction. There are other pedal board options out there, but we think you’ll like this bunch to whet your appetite.
