How do I preserve guitar leads?

Preserving guitar leads

To ensure longevity of your guitar leads, roll them carefully up. Don't use a winding - over the elbow - method as this can cause separation of the wiring inside the connectors. Any sharp pulls or constant pressure can easily break the delicate solder joints in the cable. Roll gently into a circle about 10 to 12 inches across and store flat in a hard box, crate or road case.
