these cables are not good. They will make your sounds break up and tangle up so bad. Save your money and dont make the mistake that i did.

Sharp looking, well constructed, great price!

By cantedview

Comments about Musician's Gear Braided Instrument Cable 1/4":

You have to keep in mind, that for this price, I am not trying to compare these cables to a brand like Zaolla cables. I'm saying, for a budget player, or for general use / practice cables, these things are considerably better than they have to be. Like most other braided cables, you will occassionally need to take a lighter to a length of the cable that is fraying (the denier nylon is like a backpack strap, and will harden under the heat of a flame). I would recommend these cables to anyone for general use purposes. Having a few of these on hand is great in case friends come over to jam, or someone else's cable picks up a buzz, etc.

This isnt the best cable in the market, but for the price, its amazing. i currently have two cables that came with two gibson guitars, and i always use this one because its a good quality, durable cable.

Not a good cable.

By Neighborhood Nuisance

from Dallas

Comments about Musician's Gear Braided Instrument Cable 1/4":

Bought two of these 30 foot length to give me a little freedom to move about the stage for outdoor events. A lil disappointed after first use. They are thin and kink really easily. About what I would expect given the price though and I thought I would make due. I was setting up before a gig and one cable began to cause a serious grounding buzz. When I was inspecting it the jack disintegrated in my hand. The tip, insulator and sleeve separated into pieces. I had to use my 12' rock solid monster cables for the show. I am not on world tour or anything. All my cables get wrapped with ties and placed in a gig bag. No reason this cable should have failed in less than 6 months. Save your money. Buy some real cables. This is NOT the way to go. They will fail you when you need em most.

Great Product for a Great Price

Comments about Musician's Gear Braided Instrument Cable 1/4":

I have purchased the expensive cables in the past. Sometimes I still do for certain applications. These cables are definitely hanging I there. I have used them in both live and studio applications and they do a great job. In fact, I have one studio application in which the top of the line cables make more noise than one of these does. I couldn't believe it. I bought a batch of these during a sale and will most definitely be buying another batch of them in the future just to keep around. I couldn't be happier with this purchase.

Nothing wrong with these

By Gordon Pierce

from Elgin, IL

Comments about Musician's Gear Braided Instrument Cable 1/4":

I can't tell the difference between these and cables that cost $40. Some folks say they twist and kink. I haven't experienced that problem. Some say they're too thin. I find that they are the same 1/4" as my other 1/4" cables ;). The one difference that I find between this cable and expensive cables is the price. Because of the price, I would rate this cable higher. If you find that it gets under your feet, maybe it's too long. But if that's the case, a little twitch with your hip or guitar and flicks right out of the way.

Very flexible, and the rubber-coated ends are more durable than the bare metal, screw-in style

    I recently bought a bunch of these in different lengths. Still don't really know what to do with the 1 footers. But these are very go quality at this price. Very durable. No static or other interference.

    not that great

    By scott

    from longmont, co

    Comments about Musician's Gear Braided Instrument Cable 1/4":

    these tangle and twist like an old garden hose. really hard to work with. they also don't look as great as i hoped. i really want to find some cables that look like the braided steel fuel lines on a race car, without being as unflexible. these would be ok if they were a bit more metallic looking, but for looking like braided cloth, they are too hard to work with.

      Comments about Musician's Gear Braided Instrument Cable 1/4":

      This purchase was a repeat. A few years ago I tried these cables for my instruments when I learned that other musicians were walking off with my cables. I thought the braided cables (and a color other than black) would make my cables look different and keep them from being mixed up. Not only did my idea work, but I really like these cables! They are flexible and dependable and durable.
