To my ear, there is simply no better instrument cable than Zaolla. The engineers at Hosa (Zaolla's parent company) were tasked years ago with creating the best cable anywhere, and the result is the quickest, most transparent, most dynamic cable I've ever encountered. This is attributable primarily to the solid silver used in its core. Most guitar cables use copper because it has historically been abundant and inexpensive. But silver is the most conductive metal on the periodic table, and therefore the best possible basis for any instrument cable. Silver is expensive, and these are certainly more expensive than most cables. But considering how good they sound, I think they are more than worth it.
