I received a Fender Electro-Volt 18-Foot 1/4" Instrument Cable (Fender Item #0990318006) in a promo package that came free with an SWR bass cabinet. The Electro-Volt cable is decent enough for me to keep as a spare cable, and to sometimes use while casually playing music. Although it works fine, it's not the best-quality cable for transmitting a clean signal. In comparing the Electro-Volt with the other cables I use, Planet Waves beats this Fender model hands-down! If I ever lost my Electro-Volt cable, I would not buy a new one. I highly recommend the purchase of a Planet Waves PW-G-20 or PW-GRA-20 in lieu of this product.

cableiscious

While being a Gibson guitar guy, I always liked the reliability and longevity of the Fender cable. Recently, I thought maybe I was missing out on something and purchased the Monster cable. It's a great cord but I honestly don't hear any difference from the Fender. The only difference is that the Monster cable has "cord memory", you know like a garden hose that only wants to roll one way, but the Fender behaves a lot better in that respect. I'm going back to the Fender shown here....it's simply stuff that works.

Good for the price I guess...

By James-GKvS8

I wouldn't recommend this cable to any serious players, it makes a lot of noise, and does not have the best sound. It stopped working after about 4 months of play.

Works for me

I've had two of the ten foot cables for a few years and they've been reliable and noise free. They are, in fact, my most trusted cables.

Buy these cables

By AnotherGoodOl'Boy693

from sumwhere in GA

Personally I don't see why everybody has a preference for Italian made cables, spending $40 to $60 dollars on cables is just stupid. After all, they're just cables. I had to throw one of these cables away tonight after a year and a half of constant abuse and strain, I would gladly pay twice what these cables are worth for their lifespan alone. I bought some Ibanez cables three weeks ago to replace them, and they'er already starting to crackle and pop. (Without any strain at all!!!) Buy these cables, you'll be glad you did.

Cheap enough to buy just for plugs

By Phisherman1997

from Austin TX

See all my reviews

6" pedal patch cables are decent. Don't think I'd really trust them for long runs though.I take them apart and put better cable on the plugs. WAY cheaper than buying switchcraft or neutrik right angle plugs individually, and since they're used in my pedalboard they're never really strained.As inexpensive cables go, these are at or just above average.

Good 6

By Common Roots Band

from St Louis

I have used the same three ElectroVolt 6" cables for a good 3-4 years now. Never use a pedal board so I am always connecting and disconnecting these cables from my pedals. Never had a problem. No audible interference or distortions and no problems with craftsmanship.

noisy, two cables didn't last

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

noise with movement, static "lightning" sounds. Replacing them now after 1-2 years of light use.

Great for Patch cables...

By ReverbKing

I've had mine for more than a year now. Yeah.. the 3', 1', and 6" lengths are great. I use them all over the place on my rig. Good quality, transparent, and inexpensive. I have a couple of 10' and an 18', and it sounds ok. I was using the 18' as a inustrument cable, then I switched to a PW cable. Much better at that length. Basically, these are great for pedal boards and patch bays. If you need something long, say to go from your guitar to your amp, to/from your pedal board, go for a higher-quality cable.

Cheapest plugs I've ever seen.

By One of the Nine

from Connecticut

All you have to do is accidentally step on your cord, giving a slight tug on either end, the guitar or the amp, and the plug breaks apart at the end of the cable. I bought a half dozen of these in different lengths, all of which lasted no more than a few weeks.

I have had this cable for about a year now and i have a lot of little shows in my friends basement, people walk all over the damn thing, its been ripped out of my guitar, ive even lit it on fire and it still sounds like it should for the price. if you are on a tight budget buy a few of these and they will last.

It's an okay cable, but doesn't last long. Mine lasted about nine months. I give it almost straight sixes because it is worth what you pay for it.

not too bad of a cable....

By carebeareater65

from Brooks, Georgia

This cable turned out to be ok for me because it is a VERY good value but the quality is questionable. I was practicing in my music room with my band, and since im into hardcore stuff i was jumping around a lot. then the cable just split right down the middle! i was very surprised because there wasn't much tension. So i bought a new cable and the same thing happened. so i've quit using this type of cable, but it's ok for people who play acoustic or sit down while playing. but this is NOT for you hardcore guys who like to jump all over the stage. i give it a 7 out of 10.
