Instrument cables, can't find the guy anymore


A few months back I bought a couple of instrument cables from a guy in the US who solders them by hand.
This guy was recommended here.
I'm very happy with the cables and need to buy more but I can't find the invoice with the name of his company or his emails anymore. Can anybody help?

The cable he uses is black, thinner then usual and a bit less bendable then usual. The plastic sleeve is marked "GS-6 Canare Cables 505". The jacks are marked "GH". The cables were reasonably priced.
I seem to remember it was a one-man company.

I realize this is very vague info and it could be anybody , but I remember many people here buying from him and being very pleased. A search didn't make me any wiser.

Lava Cable?

Any chance it might be Mark Stoddard with Lava Cable?


I've bought a couple small cables from him and I love them - extremely well built, great communication and service, sound wonderful.

It wasn't Lava Cable, but I checked the link out and it looks interesting.

Was it Bayou Cables maybe? Butch does great work... very reasonable.

It's either Bayou or lava cables.
I've made and sold the exact cables myself here on gearslutz

Lava Cable

I want to recommend Mr. Mark Stoddard. I've been a professional musician for almost 40 years and I think great cables are important. Mark makes great cables. Whatever you believe about cables....all voodoo aside....Mark is a man of integrity. I placed my first order with him and it took a while (OK, almost a month) and when I called him, instead of becoming defensive refunded my money - and sent me a free cable. That's how you get loyal clients. By the way the Y - cable from Lava Cable - inserted into the 2 lower inputs of my 1974 Marshall JMP 50W - sounds great.
