well, my parents bought me this cable recently because my livewire cable broke. my dad knows a lot about guitars because he's a guitarist himeself. he told me this cable offers the best quality and has no feedback. it even has a lifetime warranty so whenever it breaks, you can basically get a new one for free. this cable is a bit pricy but its totally worth buying. it works great on bass too. i actually use this for my bass.

Monster cables are supposed to be guaranteed for life. But, try and have them make good on it. I have three guitar cables I bought in 2005 and all three have lost continuity just outside the screw-on barrel (likely from bending over time). I called Monster to see what it takes to replace them ... after three weeks, they sent me an 800 number and told me to be prepared and have my receipts ready when I call. I bought these in 2005 at a store that is now out of business. Who in the world saves receipts for guitar cables, aspecially after 7 years. Buy Mogami, Whirlwind or DiMarzio. They're likely to last much longer ... never had a problem with any of them.
Theoretically noise free, low capacitance.
Appear to be sturdy, the wires are potted in at the connector, but that's not the weak spot. It's outside the screw-on barrel.
Grossly overpriced for what you get and the life of the cable.

Great at first but...

By DEREK PEEVER

from Ottawa

Comments about Monster Cable Monster Rock 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

I bought the 21 foot cable.Great at first but after only 6 months of use,the cable began to kink and as a result became noisy. I found the cable to be way too stiff.I'm not hard on my equipment,nor did I abuse this cable. What's worse is usually when this happens I can shorten up the cable and re solder the ends,but no can do.The ends are encased in a hard plastic filler. So basically just toss a $50 cable in the trash. The warranty is a joke unless you live in California.Would have cost me another $50+ to ship the cable back to Monster Cable. In conclusion don't buy this cable.There are much better out there for the money.Unless you enjoy throwing money away,be my guest.

    Comments about Monster Cable Monster Rock 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

    These cables appeared to be marked as instrument cables, but when they arrived they were 1.5 ft long and not 15 ft long. They function only as patch cords, not as instrument cables. Good thing I need a pair of patch cords for the studio as well.

    It's surely a great product. I bought it by mistake. I needed a cable for my bass guitar, but I'm using for other purposes, like with my tuner because it happenned to be to short. I reoder and just receive the right one.

      Great Cable

      By Randall Plate

      from San Diego, CA

      Comments about Monster Cable Monster Rock 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

      Great quality cable. I have a Monster Standard cable and compared the two - on electric guitar I noticed no difference - both were clear, no noise, with identical tone. I then tried it with my bass guitar, and I think there is a slightly better sound with the gold cable as opposed to the standard. It gives slightly richer, more defined low bass notes. Its subtle, but worth it in my opinion. Great quality construction that I anticipate will last many years with no problems.

        Yes there are cheaper cables (I've owned most of them) but they do not hold up or keep your tone clear like these do.

          I got some monster patch cables & they completely stopped the buzzing/unwanted noise coming from my pedal board. They live up to their good rep.
          By the by I got an 8" straight ended monster cable & it is the perfect fit for connecting my orange micro terror practice amp to my orange PPC108 8" cab. It fits like a glove, just long enough.

              I've been upgrading cables in my home studio. These 'Monsters' really are the ticket. Gold ends,sturdy & reliable. Good signal transfer and can take bumps and drops.
