Any one know where I can buy a coil instrument cable? I bought one from musiciansfriend once before the fender california one that was supposed to be 25 Feet. But it wasn't and it was so heavy it would come unplugged from my guitar a lot. I want one that's thin like a telephone cable one like I've seen hendrix use

I don't know of any that are manufactured real thin like that. But why would you want that? Sounds like it'd be easy to have something go wrong.

ProCo and Spectraflex are two really good cables. The Spectraflex has a 25 year warranty and the ProCo has 20 year warranty. And I've put both through hell and they still work.

Just get a normal good quality caple. Or try google
Let the pretend take over
And that season be the first
Shadows we're in become us

I use a Peavey PV 15 foot cable, I am sure they make a longer one but its a great cable, mind you its fabric covered so it coils up a little too easily.

Personally I'm very impressed with Monster Cable's "pro" line of cables. My tone is a little bit more crisp than with "standard" Monster Cable (I'm fairly sure the resistance of the "pro" cable is a little bit lower) and definitely superior to any more generic cables I've used. It's expensive but I believe it's worth the money.
