@redman - look here
I got a few Guitar Fetish cables that have served me fine. Frankly, my overall experience with guitar cables is that the more I pay for them, the faster they go bad. The fancy-ass cables feel great, look great, and die in less than a year while my crappy Radio Shack cables will probably last until the sun burns out.
I know you said 10ft is enough, but:
I would try these for that price if not only after that entertaining ad for them.
I just ordered a second set of these patch cables, the first set I have is used daily for the last 2 years.
I futz around with my pedals fairly often too, so they do get moved around a bit.
I have this one I dont really use, just happen to use the others.
PM me your address under Start a Conversation in the Inbox, top right of page, I'll send it to you if you want it.
It is actually 20ft in green.
They only have 20 ft I'll keep checking back thanks for the link.
Monoprice cables are decent, as I understand, and are not expensive.
Whatever you get, try to go with a lifetime replacement warranty. Buy it oncem, and if you have problems, it isn't yopur problem.
I'd be hard pressed to believe Reverb cables are any different than any number of cheap imported cables with a woven cover after disassembling the broken one I had. Any store brand cable of the same gauge with molded stress reliefs will likely be basically the same thing, just a different color or maybe some minor tweaks to the stress relief.

I find the cheapest cables a nightmare and expensive ones a waste of money. If anyone can show me anything that is an improvement over any average typical cable I'd love to hear it. 2 solder connections and a strain relief are all the same. Beefier plugs won't fit. Fatter cable is tougher but hard to fit in plug and a pain.
I find the gc lifetime plugs are as good as any and easy to get replaced when they do fail. They are expensive seeing as cables are so easy to repair. I seem to have a fair share of problems with cables. I don't yank them. Maybe just a trip over yank, 1 a year or so.
I got surprising long life out of the discount woven cable I bought from gc but it's getting crackly now.
I say buy those expensive gc lifetime warranty (livewires? About $30?) If you hate soldering or decent $10 cables and fix as needed.
Better cables often have lower capacitance, but 99% of them won't list that spec, only high grade ones will tell you.
Yes but is lower better? We all ditched the coily ones because of that and now people are specifically buying them again because of it? Was the coily more or less uF?
Coily would indicate increased uL.
Just measured a Reverb 20ft, it was 713pf. My other 20fts (30 yr old) are somewhere here not to be found. I can bet if you had 2 cables at 20ft each, total of 40ft, most people could hear the difference. Reverb's are 24 gauge and the spool of Talent i got from parts express says 22gauge. I don't know what i paid for the spool, but 100ft will make a lot of cables, custom lengths are nice to have. The box of 100 Switchcraft 1/4" plugs i had to buy at the hamfest, price was too good to pass.
Right, a coil is inductance. But I remember talk of capacitance. No?
That work in progress bench pic makes my fingers start twitching.
Starting another amp build soon.
I need to do a total cleanup before I start anything else. Somewhere here is a Marshall style jtm45 but 18 watt power section, it was 75% complete but I started the pedal pushing and never completed it.
My second bench that was supposed to be strictly for guitars, that has 3 tube testers, oscilloscope, distortion analyzer, all stacked up on it. Need to clean that off too.
If I had heat in the garage, that would be my second home.
