OVERVIEW

Switch silently!

Right angle 1/4" connector to straight 1/4" connector.

The Planet Waves Circuit Breaker plug has fail-safe operation to save your equipment from loud pops and squeals when you change guitars with a live amp. When the button is pushed, the cable shorts while remaining plugged into your guitar, making on-stage guitar changes a snap, and eliminating any chance of sound bursts. Once the cable is shorted, remove the cable from the guitar being used and plug the cable into the next instrument. Press the button again to reactivate the cable signal.

I've been using these for years and purchased this one to replace an old one that finally gave out after almost 10 years. I've read a couple reviews where users complained that the angle end wouldn't properly plug in and would pop out of the guitar jack. I've never had this problem and was a little concerned that newer versions might not be as good as the older, original design. My new cable works great with no issues whatsoever. I have two Charvels, a custom Strat and a PRS Custom 22, and the cable works with every guitar without a hitch. I'm thinking maybe lesser expensive guitars might be part of the problem. Manufacturers will always reduce the quality of the electrical components along with everything else to reduce the sell price of their guitars.

This Planet Waves Instrument Cable is very disappointing. The 90 deg. end will not stay plugged in - falls out! It is 1/64" shorter than others I have. Did measure it quite closely. Got it to plug into a front plug in guitar. Think their QC or design people missed on this one. Was going to send it back but with the shipping, etc. doesn't seem worth it. Have the same setup with a straight-straight and circuit breaker, it works just fine. Do see that the 90 degree end one is made different than the straight/straight shaft cable. Buy plenty from M-F and Planet Waves will be off my list. Feel that they owe me a operational 90-straight with a circuit breaker instrument cable, for sure.

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Circuit Breaker Cable Right Angle-Straight:

      Seems I told you this before.......this cable in not functional as in for most guitars. Pops out and will not stay engaged. I get emails from M/F on this cable frequently telling me what the latest person has to say on it. Do like the cable setup with the circuit breaker, works great if the cable stays in place. Not all is lost, if you have some time to modify it a bit. IT IS TOO SHORT ON THE SHAFT BY 1/16" so I filed the back end to make it a tad bit longer and works great for me. Come on Planet Waves get it right to begin with and all us guitar guys will be happy..

        Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Circuit Breaker Cable Right Angle-Straight:

        I own two Planet Waves Circuit Breaker Series Instrument Cables. The circuit breaker function is awesome and the cable and connector quality is superb. However, the shape of the connector prevents it from fitting in some guitars.

        My Gibson SG forcibly ejects the cable. If you are wondering if it is a guitar problem, it is not. Google it. Other famous manufacturers of quality guitars similarly eject the cable. My Fender, Monster, and no-name cables all work fine in that guitar.

              This is a great cable to have. This is my second cable out of 6 years of gigs. First cable still operates and sounds great but getting old and i wanted another to have in my bag for backup just in case. Great cable at a great price!

                        This is a GREAT cable - especially if you play different instruments through the same port!!
                        It mutes perfectly with no pop or snap - it takes me longer to switch instruments than it does to mute/unmute this cable!!
                        Gold terminals, high quality cable and build, I expect this to last me a very long time!!
