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

This is your instrument's lifeline to the rest of the world. Make it a good one. Put it in the cart.

    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.

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

        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.

            This my second one of this model. No problems after a couple of years of light use. Heavy plastic moulding on the ends inspire confidence. Includes a convenient cord wrap.

              I like this cable very much. Compared to other low noise cables I've tried before, this one really does the job. Very good transparent sound from the guitar to the amp. Long Life, Great Tone, what else could you want? Love it and recommend it to anyone for improved natural tone.

                  tight fitting plugs very unlikely to fall out of the jack easily. construction seems to discourage tangling.

                      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.

                      Solid connection,high quality materials. I have been using these cables for a few years, never had a failure, and only buy more for convenience, so I keep one in each guitar case (14 of them).
                      High quality
                      excellent components
                      Great price

                      Pricey but worth it in the long run

                      from Omaha, NE

                      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!
