You've researched and spent a lot for a quality instruments. The sape can be said of having a quality cable between your instrument and PA or amplifier really does make a difference.
My recommendation for a quality cable is any of the cables below. I personally have Analysis Plus cables as well as an Evidence Audio instruments cables. These are the best cables I have used and are somewhat reasonably priced.
The Zaolla Silverline cables really look promising but pricey.
For a more consumer and musician friendly priced cables try out Planet Waves, Monster, Mogami or Asterope

In today’s global economy, it’s often difficult to track who really makes a branded cable or other products.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books! — Peter Rhee
