unclej Posted October 19, 2005 Report Share Posted October 19, 2005 a customer just returned two planet wave guitar cords that he had purchsed and said that neither of them was working and that they had a lifetime guarantee on them. while checking them out before i sent them back i found that one of them didn't work and the other apparently did. i uplugged the one that was working and started bending and tugging on it to see if i could discover a break somewhere when i noticed that i could hear what i was doing through the amp. now i'm not talking about scratching sounds or cutting in and out..i'm talking about no matter where i thump the cord..on the tip insulation or anywhere along the length of the cord i can hear it through the amp..to a lesser degree i can hear my fingers slide along the cord. i tried the same thing with several other cords that i had around here and none of them made the same sound. so how does a guitar cord become microphonic?
