I bought one of these when i bought my bass last summer and it worked great for about 6 months an then it stopped working. It wouldn't pass any sound through it even when the circuit breaker was pressed. Since there is a lifetime warranty on these i took it back and got a brand new one and it has worked fine for the past 6 or 7 months but now it has totally died. Another problem is that the cable is so stiff, it kinks up if you move too much and can be a pain to untangle. Great idea for a product, just not durable enough.

The circuit breaker part is a great idea and workds great. The problem is that the rubber/plastic used for the cable is absolutely the wrong substance to use for a guitar cable. If never had such a bad experience with any other instrument cable I've ever purchased. It instantly becomes wound around itself from the slightest movement. Leaving about 2' of slack from a 10' cable. I spend more time untangling the cable than I do playing through it.

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-AG Circuit Breaker 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

    The cable quality is very good as expected. However the description of the switch operation is wrong.

    It has a Momentary ON/OFF switch (As stated on the packaging) not a Click ON/Click Off switch as described on Guitar Center's website which reads:
    "When the button is pushed, the cable shorts while remaining plugged into your guitar, making on-stage guitar changes a snap, and eliminating any chance of sound bursts. Once the cable is shorted, remove the cable from the guitar being used and plug the cable into the next instrument. Press the button again to reactivate the cable signal."

    The correct description from D'Addario's web Site reads:
    "D'Addario Circuit Breaker cables feature an integrated mute switch that prevents loud pops or squeals when unplugging your instrument. Simply press and hold the button to activate the mute function, and unplug. When you're plugged in and ready to go, release the button to reactivate sound."

    Accurate descriptions are important to online buyers. 2 Star Penalty!

    Planet Waves Circuit Breaker Cable

    By Funkatram

    from Hauppauge, NY

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-AG Circuit Breaker 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

    I have had this cable for a while now, and it really delivers. The actual plug itself has a few little bumps on it that "lock" it into your gear. The circuit breaker button works perfectly. It comes with some different colored rubber bands so you can identify which side has the circuit breaker on it. I got the 10 foot version, and it comes with 8 players points that you can redeem and get some pretty cool stuff for. This is a great cable, and has more features than any cable i've ever seen. Excellent product. Definitely recommended!!

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-AG Circuit Breaker 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

    What do these cables sound like... it's simple. NOTHING. That's the point - NO pops, NO buzz - clean and clear. I recently re-cabled my entire board with Planet Waves' cable making kit. Everything these guys make is built to last. Our band puts this statement to the test every day. Planet Waves passes every time. Peace. (go get some)

    Great purchase

    By bethelmelly

    from Elkhart, IN

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-AG Circuit Breaker 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

    I play both acoustic and electric at my church and Circuit Breakers are an absolute life saver for when I need to switch back and forth. The cables themselves are amazing, but to add to it, you can completely cut all the noise. In our old auditorium, we'd get feedback when the Pastor was preaching. With the circuit breakers, I was able to prevent that from happening at the touch of a button. It was great! And now, I just love them for when I need to tune and so forth. Great value overall too as far as price is concerned.

    Great Cable!!!!!!!!

    By Stephen

    from Holly Springs, GA

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-AG Circuit Breaker 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

    This is THE best thing to have on a gig, especially if you own several guitars (as I do) and change them during the set. No more loud, obnoxious noise when you do. Just "disable" the cable and you're good to go!

          I would not want to use any other cord. It allows you to turn of the cord and swithch guitars without haveing to remove the cord from your amp or going to the amp to turn it off.

          Planet Waves Circuit Breaker Instrument Cable

          By Michael Senkpiel

          from Chicago, IL

          Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-AG Circuit Breaker 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

          Planet Waves Circuit Breaker Instrument Cables are a great investment. They are a tad bit expensive, but you are paying for the quality. The killswitch is a great idea because you can save your amp, and protect it from years of popping abuse by switching guitars with the amp live. I used to use some cheaper quality cables that you buy for under $10, but they seemed to muddy up my cleans, well that all changed once I layed my hands on these. I would suggest a smaller length, because you start to lose good tone at about 20' from your guitar to your amp.

          Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-AG Circuit Breaker 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

          I find this cable unusable. It will not lay flat on the floor, it will not lay in nice even loops like my Spectraflex. It is always tangled up with itself. They have used the wrong material in the covering. Stay away.

          Great cable for live performance

          By Chris

          from Dirty Jersey

          Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-AG Circuit Breaker 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

          I'm an actively gigging musician (average 2 shows per month for several years) and I use this cable exclusively from my guitar into my pedalboard for 5+ years. I change guitars frequently and the circuit breaker is a much better option over constantly throwing the standby switch (which, over time, will damage the amp and/or speaker). The cable should be wrapped properly after use or you could encounter minor issues with kinking. I did have an issue a few years back with a bad plug, but since this cable has a LIFETIME WARRANTY I brought it back to GC and exchanged it, no questions asked. I recommend this cable for anyone, especially the active musician.
