In case anyone is wondering, I sent my mailing address to Lava dude, and I even agreed to pay for the cables if I decided to keep them per Lava's instructions. Sounded like a done deal to me.
Pushing 2 months now and no cables, or emails or anything from the guy. I see he has been posting here, but I guess he is too busy posting to say he decided to back out of the deal. With that being said, Lava Cable presale service sucks, so if you do buy, ask plenty of questions on actual service in case you need it
I have a Whirlwind that has lasted me the better part of 15 years gigging, so I have a good sense of what quality is to fill the gap in my cabling.
I'm buying some Whirlwind cables this afternoon since I can't keep waiting on this, but you guys already know the exceptional quality of those
