OVERVIEW

Switch silently!

Planet Waves Circuit Breaker cables feature an integrated mute switch that prevents loud pops or squeals when unplugging your instrument. Simply press and hold the button to activate the mute function, and unplug. When you're plugged in and ready to go, release the button to reactivate sound. The right angle plug is a great choice for plugging into guitar side-mount jacks and effects pedals. The 10-ft. length is ideal for shorter runs, such as guitar-to-pedal board, and smaller stages. The 20-ft. length is ideal for longer runs, such as guitar-to-amp, and larger stages.

FEATURES
  • Circuit Breaker technology mutes the cable for quick on-stage instrument changes without noise
  • Premium-quality components for maximum power and signal transfer
  • Limited lifetime guarantee

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:

      I've had Planet Waves circuit breaking cables for several years, and have appreciated the durability of the cables and the ability to completely mute my instrument just by pressing the breaker switch. I bought this cable as I needed a shorter length. Unfortunately, it appears PW has redesigned this product. With this newer version, the breaker switch must be held in the depressed position to cut the signal. For me, this makes it awkward to change instruments without concern over speaker damage - if your finger slips off the breaker button, your speakers will be impacted. A disappointing design from my perspective.

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

        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!

          Man, was I ever disappointed ... I have the switch pictured above which stays on or off when you engage it. I ordered another because it was so nice. However, the new one looks different and the switch has to be depressed and held the entire time, because, it won't stay with the circuit broken on its own. Kind of defeats the purpose as well is NOT AS ADVERTISED.

            The picture on MF, and on PW shows an entirely different switch. I bought because I wanted one I could mute to keep one instrument plugged while using another. Like bass, then to guitar. I thought I had a defective one until I read other reviews that this new design only mutes while holding the switch in. Also, they used to use better plugs that had some slightly arched thin metal that would really lock it it. People have commented on them falling out, and this never happened with the old one.

                        I have about 5 planet waves cables in various sizes. The only right angle cable i have is about 10 feet long and needed a longer one so i went with this one. I have one other circuit breaker cable and it works great. The problem with this one is it doesn't have a compression fitting like my other ones and as soon as i plugged it into my Telecaster it immediately dropped out of the jack. I ran it through my strap hoping the tension from doing that would hold it firmly in place but it didn't work. Since it's a solderless connection i'll try to find a right angle compression fitting to replace this one so the cable isn't a total waste but right now it's worthless live. I'll use it just noodling around at home but it can't be trusted in a live setting.

                              This cable definitely does what it's meant to do. With a circuit breaker, it eliminates the ugly pop when you plug or unplug your instrument, especially when the sound person forgot to mute you.

                              This would be your tool if you switch instruments on stage, and do not depend on stage men to prepare the instruments for you. The latter kind of setup would mean lots of wires, thus lots of cable management.

                              For me, on stage, it's one wire, multiple guitars.

                              I bought 6 of these cables, and at the beginning was very satisfied until I noticed that all my instruments started having problems with the input. My sound would crackle and go in-and-out. I discovered that the little hinge on the male jack ruins the input jack. The contact starts to get loose, and after awhile it becomes very easy for the jack to fall out of the guitar.

                              Highly recommended. It feels like a monster cable but with the added feature of the circuit button.
                              The feature it has - circuit on the right angle jack - works flawlessly.
                              Heavy duty and well made.
                              Not cheap but works well.

                              When I saw this cable I fell in love with it! I use an Ampeg head that doesn't have a mute button and I switch basses a Lot per gig. Going to my pedal board and turning on the tuner to then tun back to the amp to switch bases was a hassle.. I was able to go to my Bass stand and switch in less than 30 seconds!. My guitarist warned me that the switch side was delicate and that he had bought two of them and both died on him on the switch side... I am very careful with my gear and never drop the connector tips or even tangle the wires. I also started to get the same problem! audio going out in the middle of a song on stage! I thought it was the jack but it kept getting worst with all my bases. I will try the Warranty and see if it is really as good as it says in the package,,,

                              circuit breaker 1/4 inch plug

                              Upon use I have found that the unit may still "pop" when turning the breaker on & off. But I believe that is just opening or closing the circuit, which is not likely to do any damage to the electronics in the sound system. As I have had it explained to me by a gentleman in the business, the real damage is done without the breaker plug, when the plug is removed or inserted from the instrument and the tip of the plug, which is hot, touches the outer shield of the 1/4 inch receptacle which is ground and produces a dead short.

                              Working in electronics myself, I can only conclude that although the manufacturer states that the circuit is shorted when the button on the breaker is released, I believe the breaker actually inserts an R/C network, a diode or some other component in the circuit. Whatever, it seems to prevent any major damage to the electronics. I did have a problem with the plug coming out of the jack. The sleeve of the plug has an expanding spring loaded design in it which helps maintain the ground contact, but also causes the plug to dislodge if any tension is placed on the cord. Other than that, so far I am pleased that the product is available.
                              I like the cord wrap included.
                              Appears well built
                              It is a good buy, especially when you BO/GO and they come with a lifetime guarantee. Time will tell if they stand behind that. I go through cords like water.

                              The photo in the ad is like the cables I have purchased in the past. The new cable has different ends and I don't like them as much. But they are functional and sound great so I still gave a 5 star rating.

                              Although this cord is of superior craftsmanship and material, it's big drawback is the fact that the off switch must be depressed and held the entire time the chord is being inserted or removed. Because of the location of the jack on the rear of some guitars, It is difficult to position your hand to depress and remove or insert while the guitar is hung on a strap. The cords I have always used have a positive on off switch which makes them more functional and easier to use.

                              I've owned only one Circuit Breaker cable so far and it has been great for preventing those nasty pops in our sound system. Instant mute switch without having to turn down the volume and getting it right back to where I want it on the first try. However, the cable has a foil-like shield inside wrapped around the conductors, and the jacket is initially quite stiff. So the cable is exceptionally hard to manage, it constantly twists and tangles, and retains a memory like you wouldn't believe. Even after it's "broken in" it still is very resistant to winding the opposite direction.

                              The older series (I presume) is very slick and hard to grip. When you have a Strat or other recessed angle jack (like my Ibanez) it is quite difficult to take out of the plug. Its fat ends make it even more difficult to pull out. Also, those blue o-rings aren't going to stay put so you may as well take them right off. I believe they've redesigned it into a more utilitarian style with knurled rings and straight profile. That looks far better, and I hope to acquire one or two of them soon. I think most people end up needing a straight and an angled plug (EVERYBODY'S got a Strat, right?) so it would be great if they'd offer a female jack for the Cable Station series to make adapters.

                              Regardless of what it looks like, how slippery they are, or how stiff the cable is, they're still worth it. And mine has held up great so far, despite numerous drops on the stage. I was surprised how durable they are.

                                This is not the cable you are going to get. What you get is a re-manufactured cable (shown in the little photo on the right) that is now all brown and DOES NOT have a latching switch. To break the circuit, you have to continuously hold the button in. Pretty useless actually.

                                    I have the 20 feet cable with old connectors. It only worked for about a week of bedroom use before no sound came from my guitar. I checked the conductivity with a meter and saw that the wires had shorted. I unscrewed the connectors, cut a bit of the cable off and screwed the connectors back. Cable worked again for a few days. I noticed that the screw was applying too much pressure and breaking the inner isolation. Even when not inserting the screw all the way. I decided to buy some switchcraft connectors and be done with it. I noticed that the inner wire is not copper colored even though it says oxygen free copper. Maybe silver coated or just a complete lie?

                                      I play guitar publicly two to three times per week. I wanted a good cable that would be an improvement. This cable and its ability yo cut the circuit when switching guitars is extremely helpful.
