I have been using the George L cables to connect my pedal board for years but have always had the odd quirk so time to rewire the board.
I am prepared to solder as well if there is nice compact plugin ends available / designed for pedal boards. And also something that might be sold in Canada would be a real bonus
Any recommendations at all?

Those look like good cables at a very competitive price. Please let us know what you think of them after you try them for a while.

I just use the Hosa pancakes. I'm not convinced that my $30 mogami's or any of my george L's were sonically better or less noisy.

I suppose I could've even aimed them downward to make this setup even prettier.

EBS, from bassstringsonline.com he has the best prices I've seen, reasonable cost for shipping, and EXCELLENT customer service. Jason is the proprietor, he actually called me to discuss my order. He has huge positive feedback over on talkbass.

I had a single GeorgeL cable I don't even remember where or when I got it but 10+ years of service, it finally fell apart last week.

I know of two electronics parts stores in Vancouver, but they're not cheap, RP electronics and Lee's.

There seem to be few others, there's one called MRO, also not cheap.

Thanks for the heads-up on bassstringsonline.com carrying EBS cables. I've been looking for a place to buy these at a reasonable price for quite a while and was not aware that BSO had them. I can attest to great buying experiences from them myself, so I'm off to ordering some.

yes, same cables as you have shown above, but I ordered thru a canadian distributor @ $6.36 canadian funds, free shipping and no duty to pay. So probably works out close to the same price and a fellow canuck was supported with the transaction.

Please share the Canadian source.

I am using the Disaster area kit because they are the only company that offers a plug that can be used as a straight or a 90. Apperently i can use george l
s cables with these plugs. But I find these solderless plugs to be good. Most of the kits come with straight plugs, very few come with 90's and even less come with half and half.

If anyone is interested I have 6 of 8" cables with pancakes mogami/switchcraft, and 5 or 6 fender tweed 8" cables I'm going to sell. There is a guy in the cambridge area who makes the mogami/switchcraft pancake cables. Best price i could find.

on ebay look for RJ-cables He's actually in London, Ontario. I emailed him and told him what i wanted and he made them up for me. I wanted a set of 6" patch cables and an 18" cable as I need that for my setup. Cheap shipping as well.
