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.

    I bought this chord because a couple of my basses (Jackson, Ric, MM Sterling) have the input jack built into the side of the axe instead of the front face. I thought a 1/4 angle jack would sit a little "cleaner" before running the cable up through the guitar strap; as opposed to just sticking straight out of the bottom and up. I hope you can visualize what I'm trying to explain.

    The cable's input jack won't stay in the bass at all. I'll be playing along and it will just fall out - on ALL of my basses! I figgered since I paid so much for the cord I'd just flip the chord around and put the straight end into the input jack like a normal straight cord -- that jack falls out too -- out of all 3 basses!

    I think the breaker idea is GREAT, but if the cable won't stay plugged in the input jack, then it's useless for any live usage. I can now only trust to use it as a practice cord. Good idea - just needs to go back to the drawing board = get the thing to stay in tight, please!

          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!!

                        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.

                            That's it. If you don't have one, you need one. No more loud crackling noises if you handle the cable hot. Just push the button, unplug, and switch guitars or just walk away. Nice.

                              This is the perfect solution to unplugging your active axe in the middle of a gig. You push the button, you unplug,... presto changeo, no sound and no more drain on your battery. Awesome! The best solution to saving your battery without having to get an A/B box or do major surgery on your guitar with a battery on/off switch (which ought to be included in every active preamp but isn't). It's well made and of good quality. The upshot is: no pops, no noise. It's all good.
