“I LOVE my new Yellow Oval cables! They sound even better than they look, which is incredible. The clarity, tone, and signal strength are incomparable to what I was using before. I even heard less latency with effects. The clarity and precision of attack really emphasize the notes when I shred on my metal tracks, and the delivery of sound is also consistently beautiful when it comes to playing smoother styles. The quality and durability are unbeatable. Thank you guys!!!”
