I always buy middle-of-the-road leads. The Harp player in our band is always going on about his good American mike leads etc, but I'd like to know from others experience does a more expensive lead change the tone? And if so, how?
I played a gig up in the hills last month & when overdriven my amp picked up a local talk-back radio station - which I had a lot of fun with, using it as an effect (especially at the end of songs) & having some 'spoken word' leads in quiet sections (was far, far out, man!) - could this be tempered / canceled by better leads?
