What is the best guitar cable? Considering that price is a deciding factor for most guitarists, using audiophile-grade angel hair to hook up your rig isn't really an option. However, a cheap and nasty cable can be the weak link in your signal chain, destroying tone, or worse still, cutting out entirely during your moment of glory.

Countless manufacturers offer countless guitar cables made from countless materials. But while we could sit around all day arguing the toss over conductivity and electron flow, let's just try to find the best combination of price tag, reliability, road-worthiness and that all-important quality of sound.
