Did you know that your guitar cable is a capacitor? Well it’s true. It’s a capacitor just like the tone knob on your guitar. Now capacitors have a dirty reputation since they create capacitance and that causes signal loss (which is bad). Yes, while we do use capacitors all the time for good things like equalization, there is a key difference: your guitar cable was never meant to be one.
