All of my customers have heard me talk smack about how most cables are overpriced and just being priced based on the brand name.
Well, I have finally put my foot in my mouth and found a cable that is one of kind and well worth the money. Check out the info below and definitely watch the video!!!
Planet Waves American Stage Series cables are designed to reproduce the natural tones of your instrument with zero interference. Made in the USA with audiophile quality wire, the low 28pF/ft capacitance is the sweet-spot for uncolored tone and the 22AWG oxygen-free copper conductor provides exceptional signal transfer. Full coverage comes from using 95% tinned copper braiding, eliminating handling noise and rejecting interference. Using only the finest materials, custom designs and precision USA manufacturing methods, American Stage delivers a professional performance cable. The result is pure, natural tone guaranteed for life.
I was contacted and agreed to do an interview with

The author came with pen in hand and spent a few hours talking with me about the Local Music scene.
What came later was an article that actually brought a tear to my eye, because it painted a picture that I could see and I was in that picture.
It was kind of like watching a movie.
It was a picture of what is happening in Willimantic, CT and I am sure that anybody who reads it will get at least a little excited about what is happening in Eastern CT.
If you know of any businesses in Willimantic, CT that you think the rest of Connecticut needs to know about, please contact me: email@example.com
I will forward it to the author of this article and a number of other contacts I have.
I have personally watched this band grow from a small hometown band into a band that is playing the Vans Warped Tour.
I have played with every one of these guys and they prove that hard work gets you places.
Every one of them is Naturally talented, but they know how to maximize their talent!!!
And I am proud to say that one of their guitarists Will, took lessons from me and put everything I taught him into real life, in a real band.
It's all about the guitarist unlocking what is in our heads, and he took it all the way to the Vans Warped Tour!!!
And it is absolutely essential to have Awesome band mates like Riley, Dan, and Kevin!!!
This is definitely one of the most rewarding moments of my life.

I have some bad news for all of my Lumberjack / Paul Bunyon Fans.
I Shaved my beard!!!
I was kidnapped and held hostage for 48 hours. The fate of American Politics was in my hands.
I had a choice, save the right to free choice of 3.5 million American citizens or the millions of fibers on my face.
I SANG THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER, WITH TEARS IN MY EYES WHILE I DESTROYED ALL OF THOSE LITTLE FOLLICLES HOMES!!!
Exciting News!!! Local Music is taking the next step in the 'Evolution of Musical instrument sellers with beards'.
Yes, I grew a beard - (in about 4 days).
Well, now it's been 2 weeks...think Chewbacca!!!
And I also am planning on keeping you updated with events, news, and information you can use.
Don't even think about an RSS Feed, E-mail lists, Facebook, or Twitter - I am OLD SCHOOL!!!
Guess what, if you want to find any info, you are going to have to actually come to the website - oh the agony.
I am 100% confident that you are SICK of getting emails everyday with special sales and Facebook posts about how you should come down to get food in order to support your local high school graduation.
I mean seriously - does high school graduation and a bite to eat in town have ANYTHING to do with each other?
No, but it is helpful to have a reminder of that local food spot and your family will probably want a snack after the graduation ceremony, before seeing relatives with bad hair and breath at the graduation party.
So I will leave all the RSS, Twitter, Facebook, etc... to the foodies.
Remember when I said I was Old School?
Well, that means - I liked Eddie Murphy Before Dr. Dolittle.
And besides, I've seen what all that tweeting can do to your skin complexion. My cousin Doodle has got the alphabet engrained in his fingertips from his constant twitter updates - they look like tattoos!!!
