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.

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.

Worth every penny.

By JCL

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

I have three 21 foot monter cables. One is Bass-to-preamp, the other two for my effects send and return. My guitar player and I bought these at the same time and when we got to practice and plugged them in, it was amazing, the cables gave each of us at least a 10% volume increase with virtually no line noise. Add to that the ability to take them back whenever something goes wrong for a brand new one. Seriously, what else do you want from a cable?.

Monster Cables

By Ringo

from North Jersey

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

When looking for a cable, for anything, monster really is the way to go. The price may seem a little high, but it has a lifetime warranty! The quality of the cable is so high, that 1 day to a lifetime of a warranty dosnt mean much, as you would NEVER need to replace it. Putting the 5 star quality aside, the sound is clearer than you could imagine. If your even thinking about picking this cable up, just do it. you wont regret it!

you get what you pay for

By Dennis

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

A bit on the pricey side but the quality and the lifetime warranty seems like it would be worth it. When I added this cable to my chain I was surprised how much my noise was cut down. I'm really happy with this purchase and will continue to buy monster cables if I need them.

Excellent!!

By The Prodigy

from New Baltimore, MI

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

These cables are freakin' amazing! I've had a 12-footer for about a year now and have never had a problem with it. No feedback, no static, just great quality sound coming out of my amp. Like many have said before, they are a bit expensive but you can't go wrong with these monsters! Not to mention they look sexy too! Definitely a great buy.

Unleash Your Tone!!

By Moore5150

from Michigan

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

It's amazing how a relatively small investment can make such a large difference in your sound! Many people overlook the cables that they use in their rigs, which is a huge mistake. I switched to Monster cables a few years ago and could not believe the difference. It sounded almost as if the blanket that had been over my amp was removed. The sound became more clear, more powerful, and I heard frequencies that I did not realize were available before. For only a few extra bucks do yourself a huge favor and invest in some quality Monster cables!

The Best Cable Out There

By Brett Boehm

from Brook Park, OH

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

This Monster cable can get the job done, anytime, anywhere, for any style of music. The only thing they give you is a great sound, no feedback, etc. I bought two of these babies, one from my Amp to my Pedal, and one to my Pedal to my Guitar. I've had various problems with low-brand 1/4" cables, such as them falling apart, having to solder them, etc. I have had zero problems with these cables. I will never look back, Monster cables are the right cables for me. With the lifetime warranty, you can NOT go wrong with these!

No Other Cable

By Devin

from Woodbury, Tennessee

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

This is a perfect cable. Between the lifetime warrenty and quality of Monster Cables, you can't go wrong with this. I have had my six foot cable for five years now and had no problems at all, no connection issues, and no cracking like most cables. This is for sure worth the money.

A Great Cable

By Brian1711

from Wickliffe, OH

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

Without an instrument cable, your electric guitar will not even function. Obviously, the cable is an essential part of your instrument collection. If you are looking for a perfect rig, you can't overlook your cables. Monster cables are much higher quality than many of the other instrument cables out there. Unfortunately, it has a pricetag to go along with that quality. If you are looking to acheive high-quality sound, you have to purchase a high-quality cable. Look no further than this one.
