Despite buying a new VDI cable recommended on here, it still tends to tangle across the top of the HD500 and catch under the foot pedal.   I guess it's stiff because of being solid core.  But my question is whether anyone has found a satisfactory way of stopping the VDI cable interfering with and snagging on the HD500?  Ideas welcome!

Which cable did you buy? I have the version sold by Line 6 which I'm looking to replace and would like to know what to avoid.

Cheers,

BTW, forgot to add that I use duct tape to hold down the cable near my HD500 to avoid it getting caught on the pedal.

Cheers,

I got mine here:

 http://www.guitar-cable.com/index.aspx

 

very much like a standard guitar cable in flexibility.

 

They also sell very good quality guitar cables.

I bought this: http://www.ebay.co.u...984.m1439.l2649. It seems better than the Line 6 version (rubberised outer feels better than plastic) but still stiffer than a regular guitar lead.

I run it under the corner and then coil it up behind me.  But I don't wander around on stage too much.

Got to try that - I always do over-over even though I didn't know it was called that, from learning to coil rope while working with the Coast Guard, but over-under looks much better.

 

I couldn't understand people that just wrapped around their arm because they always added twists and it ends up at least partially with its own figure of 8.

 

With the JTV - VDI - HD I have my FRFR behind me pointing up (because I have a keyboard in front of me), so I take the VDI left from the HD500 and around the FRFR and then it comes forward to my left where the input is to the guitar.  Sometimes I step on it, but I never get it caught in the pedals.
