    Since I picked up a POD HD500 I need to get a bunch of cables, are these things any good? I've purchased HDMI cables and other stuff with no issues, but instrument cables take more of a beating than the ones sitting behind my TV.

    What does everyone use? What do you like? I've used some of the Ernie Ball wonder wipes. I actually like their fretboard conditioners. I've also got some Dunlop 65 instrument polish, but I don't really care for it very much. Any suggestions? What about towels/cloths? I'm looking to pick...
