Monster XRL Cables, worth it?
I noticed one of my XLR cables for my overhead microphone is starting to go out (static in line if you touch the cable when the mic is on). Which, I realize, happens. No big deal.
I am also thinking I'm not quite getting the full drum tones I want out of my over head mics, which are Audix AT4040s, running into a DigiMaxD8, going into Protools.
I know from working behind the counter at music stores, Monster cables are supposed to give you better signal and better overall sound. Some say it's more hype than anything.
They are also expensive.
So I'm taking an informal survey: Is spending the money for Monster XRL cables for my over head mics worth it?
