Nuts, Cables, and Random Observations about Fret Tools

I was a bit tired and tired of basses today, but a package came in the mail from Redco. I thought I had lost my trusted cheapy Mogami instrument cable, but it ended up being at the studio. . . but, I had already ordered parts to replace it. . . 75 feet of Canare L-4E6S Quad mic cable.

I read on the web forum that if you wanted to get super-duper trick, you could use the twisted pair XLR cables and connect the shield to the instrument end of the cable and not at the amp end. . . essentially, you extend the control cavity shielding all the way down the length of the cable. . .so I thought I'd give it a go.
