Monster Cable Monster Rock Instrument Cable
The best thing about Monster cables is that once you buy one, you never have to worry about it again thanks to the life-time no-questions-asked exchange policy / warranty. The Rock line from Monster Cable have a better build and are more reliable than the lower lines. I have not had a single problem from my eight or so Monster Rock cables and I bought them used and have had them for a good year. Another cool thing with Monster cables is if you ever want to sell them, the used price is at most like %10 below new, because you are essentially buying a new cable since you can exchange it for a new one...so they hold their value, can't go wrong with that principle.
Having such features as 95% coverage of copper braided shield to reject RFI and EMI for a clearer sound, IsoTec vibration isolation technology for less handling noise, an extra flexible DuraFlex jacket (the jacket for these as short pedal patch cables could be a little more flexible, but I like that it is thick and do prefer it over flexibility), 24k gold plated ends with a well-designed collar strain relief that doesn't only look good but also feels solid, multiple time correct windings that align the phase of the signal for accurate mid-frequency reproduction, and a MicroFiber inner diaelectric for better isolation of magnetic fields and better harmonic detail, these cables have everything you really need.
I recommend these cables for any instrument usage, from guitar to bass to keys to pedal patching etc. It looks good, functions perfect, and you don't have to worry about messing it up. I have not noticed any degradation of signal with these cables, and believe them to be accurate. Really cheap China job cables on the other hand, will suck tone. My only reap 'gripe' with these cables is the price. They are pretty expensive at around $25 a pop, but if you cost them out over the years, figure in the lack of worry or count the re-sale value, they really are an excellent value.
