Had both of these for a few days, go with the Fat Jacks for sure.For an all rubber cable, it's probably the thickest, most flexible and most durable you will find. I'm pleased and impressed.I am running high output pickups into a very high output pickup pedal, even with all that juice I actually noticed an increase in the QUALITY of the signal strength being fed into the pickup pedal. They're shrink tubed on the 1/4 jacks, the Horizons are not. The Horizon has a limited lifetime warranty if you can provide proof of purchase -I've never bothered to send in any of these cheap cables because the cost of shipping as opposed to replacing them is a no-brainer. These cables are cheap to buy because they're very clearly cheap to produce with rubber and steel being so incredibly cheap these days. You're getting a high end RUBBER guitar cable for a fair price.

At first, I really liked these cables. Inexpensive, they feel durable, they don't tangle at all...then after a few months, it started crapping out on me. In the middle of a show, my guitar started fading in and out. It was the cable. I have 2 of these cables and the same thing happend with the other one. Not sure why. I would recommend spend a few extra bucks. It could save you the embarassmnet of your guitar crapping out on stage.

Decent

By zildjian player

This was the cable I bought to start with four months ago. It's held up okay since then. There's a little hiss, but it could easily be my guitar, which isn't shielded, because it's a beginner GRX20. Or it could be my amp (MG10CD) as I've heard other people have problems with the fan hitting the side of the amp. Anyway, it's barely noticeable, and the rest of the sound is decent, so go ahead and get this cable if you don't have an extra few bucks to get one with a lifetime warranty like a Monster or LiveWire.

These are very very durable and awsomely cheap, if you bought them and are having problems maybe you didnt take care of them, they rule. I produce and play live shows and they've lasted through hell so rock on, cheap and rockin is the way us broke musicians gotta be, screw expensive stuff.

Buy something else!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I bought this cable because it was cheap and had gold tips, but it is total crap. The connection is very poor, causing buzzing and popping sounds unless positioned just right. And once you finally do get a good connection, you better not move or bump the amp. I have also used Live Wire cables, which are much much better.

Fat Jacks? Fat Plugs!

By wakachiwaka

from Burbank, CA

One of the plugs on the 3-ft. cable I purchased was too wide to fit into a standard 1/4" jack. Not recommended.

Poor quality plugs on these cables

By njpmp

from Princeton Junction, NJ

bought two 6ft cables and one of the plugs on each broke. Samething on both, the tip came off, one in a guitar and one in an amp, therefore can only raye the quality as low.

Excellent

The quality of these cables really surprised me. The cable is very thick and the jacket insulated well. They don't tangle. Haven't had them long, but I can't imagine these cables failing with reasonable care. These cables are far better than you would expect for the very affordable price. I am more than satisfied.

Good Economy Cable

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I bought 3 of these to hook up an effects loop. They're good cables for the price, sturdy and well sheilded. They replaced livewire cables that broke in notime, never gonna buy livewires again, terrible quality. They give me a good fat sound, as the name would suggest. The sound is very raw and warm. No, it's not the monster cable i use for recordings and shows, but they're fine to use in practice considering how much less i paid. No regrets.

fantastic cables

By Alx-zXttg

from Hartford, WI

See all my reviews

I ordered one of these on the reference from a friend and i must say, i honestly didn't expect such good quality cables for the price i payed. They're very industrial, in a good way; they are very rugged and durable and yet flexible. The connectors are very decent and i found the volume of my bass went up as i switched to this cable. I won't buy any other brand from now on other that these things.

WOW - A well kept secret?

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Don't know why this cable isn't more popular. The jacket is fat, the plug body is fat, this is one fat cable. The ends are very solid and feel very durable. The jacket is fat but is made from a very soft and supple material, maybe silicone or some other bendy material. In any case, I bought a 3 foot lenth of it to use between my guitar and a headphone amp and could not be happier.

Falls off from my Gibson LP

Ask me a question

I got this from the Stupid Deal of the Day. I thought it was a good deal but this cable gets easily unplugged. It just wouldn't stay put in my LP nor PRS. Not recommended for gigging except when used from pedalboard to amp.

Plastic Tips?

By Swaggering Cuban

from United States

I bought this cable because it was very inexpensive. It's also very useless. Worked for a short time before it literally fell apart. The plugs feel like they are plastic and proceeded to spin around until the tips came off.
