I use this in 2 places. One, I use it in the output jack of the last pedal on my board to connect to the cable running back to my AMPLIFIER. It saves the space of having my cable stick straight out of the pedal saving about 6 inches AND I can just wrap up my cable flip the connector over and store it in the board, never having to disconnect!! Second, I have one connected to the opposite end of the cable which inputs IN to my Amp. By doing this I can run my cable off to the side and along AND DOWN the side of the amp, rather than having it hanging straight out and hanging down the front where someone may step on it and bust it at the input jack!! I am a BASS Player using a 15 ft. cable into a small pedal board with 6 EFFECTS PEDALS and then into a 20 ft. cable back to my Amplifier. I Have NOT had any TONE LOSS or TONE CHANGE using 2 of THESE Right Angle connectors in my line!!

Great design for chaining forward facing pedals to side input pedals. I use it with another offset plug and it makes a nice, short, solid connection between pedals.
It's also good for plugging in my SG to a straight input plug. That way I can switch between my strat (which requires a straight input cord) and my SG, which has the input on the guitar's face. The plug sticking straight out on the SG always gets in the way.
Unfortunately, I ordered 2 to start with, and 1 was DOA.
I like the all metal construction, so it's still worth ordering another one.

Great Idea but...

Comments about Live Wire 1/4" Right Angle Adapter:

this little contraption is a great idea, but it kills your tone, I bought a pack to save money rather than buy a cable with a right angled end and used one into the wah pedal on my board(as i had a separate wah pedal and a multi effects unit) and a straight cable to the multi effects. When I used just the wah with two straight cables the wah sounded great, when i used this adapter the wah did its job, but i had no tone whats so ever. I ended up going back to the Guitar Center store I bought them at and buying a right angled cable. If tone is important to you, just bite the bullet and buy a cable with a right angle end, you'll spend a few more bucks, but its worth it.

Don't bother.

Comments about Live Wire 1/4" Right Angle Adapter:

The adapters I received were not the ones pictured. The internal contact was bent so far shut that I could not insert a cable and when I very gently attempted to bend it back, it broke. So I grabbed the other. Same problem. It didn't break but the cable will not even go all the way in the jack, no matter what I do. Even when it makes contact the resulting sound is terrible, probably due to there being NOTHING insulating the ground. Great buy if you feel like soldering and fixing it yourself, otherwise, get real cables...

Didn't notice any difference in tone

By Daytona-t9eU7

from Texas

Comments about Live Wire 1/4" Right Angle Adapter:

I would have to disagree with the guy who said this adapter killed his tone. I didn't notice any difference in the tone after using it. It appears to be made from the same heavy duty chromed steel that guitar cord jacks are made from, so I'm not sure how it could change your tone. It's just a metal extension of the guitar cord jack itself. I have a real crowded pedal board and got three of these, which made it much easier to attach or swap out guitar or patch cords.

          Comments about Live Wire 1/4" Right Angle Adapter:

          I bought these because I needed to convert a couple of cables to right angle connectors on one end. These did not fit the application I had in mind because they are more bulky than I expected. However, if you need to convert a cable end to right angle in an emergeny these may work for you as long you have space for the hookup.

          I use this item between two pedals, one is running into an effects loop and the other is running to the amp, fits perfectly and allowed me to keep my pedal board the way I wanted it rather than rearranging to fit a cable in. awesome

          Comments about Live Wire 1/4" Right Angle Adapter:

          These adapters are very high quality and are a must in my pedal board where I run 2 effects loops out of 1 board. I use them in the back of my Carvin stack for the speakers and effects loops. This allows me to get the stack closer to the wall in the compact place we have to rehears. Plus it's easier to organize your cables.

          Comments about Live Wire 1/4" Right Angle Adapter:

          Well, Idk. I got it to allevate straight-straight cable stress from running it through my strap from a side-of-body jack. I found the jack part wiggles and causes buzz and cutouts when you pull on it. Maybe I just got a defect, because the diamond-y metal seems sturdy. Its not expensive, though.

          Comments about Live Wire 1/4" Right Angle Adapter:

          Got one of these several months ago for use with a 7-string bass with a side-body jack. It works exactly as it should. No effect on tone whatsoever. The only minor problem I had with it after a while was intermittent but very infrequent signal cutouts, but I fixed this by duct taping the adapter to the cable.Will definetely be getting more of these whenever I buy straight-straight cables.
