I bought my first monster cable about 4 years ago, and I haven't looked back since. The secret is in the gold plating. The gold also looks cool. I use my new Jackson RR3 with Duncan pickups into my Marshall G80R amp. It really cuts down on "fuzz" and other unwanted noise. The clean tones come in thick and meaty (like I like 'em). Plus they come with a lifetime warranty! They have greatly improved my recording quality into my Tascam us-122. Yes, they may be a little bit pricey, but you'll never get such an authentic sound.

I bought this cable for my Fender Tele based on Monster's name and history with quality cables. My hope was to use the right angle side on the guitar for a cleaner look. The right angle side will not "snap" into the guitar, falls out, and does not work with the tele. I have to still use the straight in side of the cable on the guitar. I guess it works on the amp side though. Im glad I couldn't find the double right angle cable I was looking for since it would not have worked, I would have opened it, and Guitar Center would have hassled me with returning it. So......don't buy this cable for use with a telecaster.

I really wish I never bought my set of Monster Rock cables. I was having an issue with my tone when running across my room from buffered pedal board to one of my amps, and it turned out that replacing with a higher-end cable, the issues disappeared immediately. The Monster cables are muddy in the mids, and harsh in the treble response. I hate them.
This cable is not only durable but the signal quality is wonderful. I am a guitarist who plays out about once a week, and this cable always comes with me. It gets stepped on, kicked, beer spilled on it, and it still functions just like the day I opened it. At first I thought having quality cables was just a marketing gag, it's just wire right?...Wrong, cables can make or break the audio quality. This cable ROCKS!
As soon as i plugged in i could HEAR the quality over my old cord. It instantly offered more clarity and crispness to my tone and notes. It was like everything i was playing before this cable was being sent up a line of muddy yarn. Now i get a clear signal path from my guitar to my amp with very little resistance and i can hear what my signal is suppose to sound like. As far as the quality of the cable and ends i like the angle and the cable is soft and supple like high quality cables should be, not like the cheap jackets others use. It lays flat when unrolled and the connectors stay tight in the jacks.
You pay for a nice looking cable and pay more because of the lifetime warranty. Stay clear of this stuff - I've gone through two brand new ones in the past few months. First cable started cutting-out at a show, took it back guys at GC were good about replacing it, now my replacement is cutting out. The cheaper live wire stuff never fails. I'm done with Monster Guitar Cables - take it from a gigging guitar player. this stuff isn't worth the price.
I got the 30 foot one it is all good .
very good build quality, wont let you down. i purchased the 21ft version and have had no trouble with rf interference. i would recommend it.
Quality doesn?t cost ? it pays. I purchased a pricy 10 foot guitar cable (U.S. made, btw) over 15 years ago, and it finally failed this year. I tried to replace it with the ?cheap? Live Wire Advantage cable. Even at first look, the cheap replacement looked very flimsy. The outside diameter (i.e. think insulation) was only a fraction of my old cable. I played for 20 minutes, and the Live Wire Advantage cable seemed fine. The next time I picked it up (the next morning), the cable was dead within the first 5 minutes of play time. Not just static, hiss, or pop ? stone cold dead. Nobody stepped on it, spilled their drink, or left it in the trunk of the car overnight ? it just died for no reason. I replaced it with the ?top of the line? Monster Cable. I think this new cable might outlive me. Here is my only complaint (if any)?the new Monster Cable seems to add tone and depth. That isn?t necessarily a bad thing, but I would like to know ?how and why?? In any case, I seriously doubt that you will be disappointed by this item.
If you are looking for the best cable for a great price, buy this one. I have no complaints and I am very satisfied.
Okay, this cable was nice for the time I used it before it broke.... Probably wasn't even a whole month with this cable before the 1/4" male broke off of the angled end of the cable. Very disappointed that I spent all this money to get a bad cable. Maybe I got a lemon, I don't know, but it's definitely changed my outlook on Monster cables.
i do not think ive ever seen a cable this perfect, angled end for when im sitting on my bed, straight end for when im standing, 100% zero interferrence. the thing is super strong and super thick so that when my stupid friends go stepping on my cable, it doesnt get hurt one bit. if you take care of your cables, this is the last cable you will ever have to buy, guaranteed.
