These are basically the cheapest possible 1/4 cords anyone could possibly manufacture and sell. They are also (so far) reliable and clean sounding, which I didnt expect at this price. Worst case scenario I spent about 60 cents per jack and have to resolder them to better cables after they break. So far Ive had no problems at all. Ive noticed no hiss, interference, blips in connection, etc. I havent had them long, so no word on longevity. My only complaints: -maybe less colors per batch, 2-3 different colors would be much easier to colorcode my chains. Im going to buy 3 more packs for my experimental rig, then I'll have 4 of each color. -more options for length. 17' is a little too long for my guitar fx and left me with some slack. I gave them 2.5 on features because they dont have unscrewable 1/4 jacks, but thats not a complaint because theyd be a lot more expensive if they did that.

I bought the right angle version. These cables look and feel good. When they work, they sound good. For some applications they are fine, but it depends on your gear. Depending on the jack in a particular piece of equipment, it may or may not work. In some jacks, the plugs do not make good contact and are intermittent if they are rotated. This has nothing to do with the wiring. It has to do with the way the plug seats in the jack due to the shape of the tip of the plug and the length before it hits the stop. The shape of the metal part of the plug itself is slightly different than every other cable I have and the tip does not make good contact with the jacks in musical equipment because the shape of the tip deflects the plug to the wrong depth inside the jack, either too far or too short and rotating the plug just slightly will cause the signal to cut out. This happens with every end of all 8 cables and can be verified with a cable tester (rotate the plug and it shows the signal is intermittent). I was able to force the plug to work properly by shimming the end of the cable so that the plug just barely can't seat all the way and it works fine then, but I really shouldn't have to shim a cable to make it work. Even the cheapest, worst quality junk cable I own doesn't have this problem. Only these, and again, it's every plug on every cable. Due to the item being so inexpensive, it was not even worth returning it. I would recommend spending a little more money and getting anything else. It's not worth hours of your time dealing with a problem like this the way I did just to save a few dollars.

      Used these to connect pedals on board for my live gigs. Worked fine for a dozen or more gigs and then... Had one get spotty in connection. I'm a solo act so having my guitar cut out mid song was NOT GOOD.

          Patch cables.

          They sound as good (or as bad) as the things you're patching and as good as any other cables I've used for short runs.

          Long enough to use good for rack or pedalboard stuff that requires TS 1/4" and might need a little extra length due to pedalboard tetris. Not so long you're tripping over them generally.

          Comments about Musician's Gear 1/4 - 1/4 Patch Cable 8-Pack (17"):

          I play lead guitar in a worship band. I needed longer patch cables to handle my pedalboard looping system, and I didn't want to spring for the expensive, high quality ones just yet. Especially since I'm still figuring out the arrangement of my pedals (with the looping, they can be placed pretty much anywhere). But I also needed long patch cables with slim plug end that weren't big and bulky. These worked fine, and I've had no issues. I was skeptical going in, especially after reading some bad reviews, but they sound fine to me. I probably won't replace them until i need to. And since I'm using a looping system, the signal only goes through those cables if I specify them to, and when they do, they are accompanied by some sort of effect sound. So unless I activate them, my signal is from guitar to looper to amp, using long high quality cables. So, my point is, I probably wouldn't use these to daisy chain a lot of pedals, but for my purposes, its affordable and functional!

          Low-cost patch cables. I would have preferred right-angled plugs, and that the cables be all black. But they work.

          I needed a just a couple of cords this long on my pedalboard and these fill the bill. Checked them all when they came in and a couple of them didn't meter up just right, but weren't far enough off to really worry about. I'm keeping them all for extras as the board always seems to expand while I sleep.

          They are inexpensive but not flimsy, although I wouldn't use them for something that gets moved a lot or that is constantly re-patched or if you are rough on cables. The only real complaint I have is that the plugs are kind of long so you still can't get your pedals all that close even though they are right angle plugs.
