OVERVIEW

Solid, static-free connection with virtually every standard jack manufactured.

The Planet Waves Gold-Plated 1/4" Angled - Straight Instrument Cable has near-perfect frequency response, double-insulated/double-shield coverage, and the low triboelectric (handling noise) of any cables on the market. The Planet Waves plug is soldered, covered with an internal copper shield tube, and then over-molded, first with a rigid PVC to encapsulate the solder joints, and then with a flexible polymer for unprecedented strain relief. This virtually indestructible construction is so tough, so durable, that Planet Waves Gold-Plated Instrument Cable carries a limited lifetime warranty.

FEATURES
  • Static-free connection
  • Near-perfect frequency response
  • 3-layer plug connection coverage
  • Limited lifetime warranty

Cables, I've tried them all and keep coming back to these. This cable holds onto the jack better than any other cable I've found. There's nothing more frustrating then being on stage playing and having one of your cables pop out. I switched to these and never have that problem anymore. I tried other expensive cables but none of them can hold onto equipment as good as these. I read some other reviews about people stating it rotated their jacks, that will only happen if your jacks aren't tight! That's not the cable, that's your guitar! Almost any cable will cause that if your guitar jack isn't tight. One thing about these, I had 2 of them 'go out' on me, probably all the alcohol spillage, I emailed Planet Waves, sent them in, they sent me 2 brand new ones no problem. Gotta love that lifetime warranty.

I needed a longer cord with a right angle connector for my Jazz bass and lap steel. When I uncoiled the cord, it started kinking up very badly. I had to completely lay out the entire length on the floor and twist out any kink memory, which didn't really work. It has a mind of it's own and always wants to twist and kink up. Seems the cable wires underneath the outside rubber sheathing is twisted underneath. A real pain to use. For this prices I expected a little better.

    Inexplicable Design

    By CJG

    from Southern California

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Gold-Plated 1/4" Angled - Straight Instrument Cable:

    Guitar jacks aren't meant to withstand rotational forces. These plugs grab the jack so firmly that they can twist your wiring into a knot or even break it. After using this cable for a few days, I checked the wiring on my bass and my guitar. Both were badly twisted.If you own one of these, and your guitar jack rotates, be sure to use the strait end into your guitar - to minimize torque.One more thing. The plugs have such thick cover that I had to trim it before it would fit in a tele style jack.

    I've used several different cables and all create static and don't last long but this cable creates no static and has lasted longer thatn all the others.

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Gold-Plated 1/4" Angled - Straight Instrument Cable:

    While working in a music store back in 2002 I began product research between the Planet Waves Cables and several other brands. Despite the price, which I still feel is rather high, I kitted out my entire rack and instrument cables with Planet Waves. I have never bought another brand of cable since... unless they weren't available! I have about 10-12 different cables ranging from the 16" patch cables for my rack to the 20' instrument cable. I am still using the original cables from '02 and they sound just as good today. No cracks and pops from years of abuse. Sure, they cost more. But your only going to have to buy them once!

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Gold-Plated 1/4" Angled - Straight Instrument Cable:

    I returned this cable the same day I bought it. Two problems: 1) The bass and low mids are weak so the cable sounds VERY bright. 2) The spring plugs will damage jacks, especially when rotated in the jack. I won't buy Planet Waves 1/4" cables ever again.

      This cable is heavy duty and the ends look durable, however there is a short in the cable and it goes in an out and cannot be used for live music or as a back up, works some then stops and you have to wiggle it to get it to work and then goes out again. Tried several other of my cables, so not the guitar input or mixer input.

                Good cables; I don't notice a sound difference between these and Monster cables in my setup. My one beef is that the plugs are huge, making them difficult to use if the jacks are super close to each other (i.e. in a loop switcher).

                    I am always very pleased with these cables. I've tried Rapco's, The Musician's Gear's, right angled cables and have been disappointed with the fit and finish. I believe these Planet Waves are the best for the money. Other cables don't fit solidly in the jacks and some are easy to pull the connections apart at the jacks but these give me peace of mind because they are a little thicker and better built & provides good clean sound to the amp.

Long Life, Great Tone, what else could you want? Love it and recommend it to anyone for improved natural tone.

                                Looking for a short cable when using my acoustic guitar. This is an excellent cable as it reduces hum as I don't use a pre-amp. Very pleased with the quality.

                                I used to buy cheap cables, and there was a lot of static, but when I got this cable there was no humming or static, this is by far the best cable I have ever used
