Noob Instrument Cable question
« on: June 20, 2007, 05:02:11 PM »
Ok, quick question on instrument cables.  Do I solder the shield to ground on both ends of the cable?  Or do I solder just one a la shielded cable w/effects.  I searched and searched but didn't find anything specific.  Am I retarded?  Thanks in advance.

Yes.
No.
I don't think so--hard to say for sure.  ;)

PM sent but you need the braid/shield connected at both ends to complete the circut.
