These cables work fine and I've never had a problem. The cable is probably a little thin for "gigging", but for connecting the rig in the basement, they work great. Monster cable is a rip off. I just want to connect everything, I don't need blow my wad on cables. These are inexpensive and work fine. Even if I had the extra cash, I wouldn't spend it on Monster Cable. I use these mainly for interconnects between my mixer, keyboard, effects, etc. Great for things that don't move around much, like a home studio. For my primary cable from my guitar I use a proco lifeline. It's a better quality cable so I don't have to worry about stepping on it so much as with these. I bought some extra 1/4" jacks. If ever a cable breaks, I'll just re-solder the connector, or cut it and make two shorter cables. I'm ok with that. At least with these, the jack isn't molded on so you can actually inspect and repair the connector.

I got my used Epiphone guitar around nine months ago for my birthday, and my dad got me a livewire guitar cable to go with it. Well I had never used a different cable, so I didn't know the poor quality of the one I was stuck with. The first few months were great, but after awhile I noticed a slight buzzing. Eventually the stupid thing just stopped working and I opened it up to find that the soldering was done very poorly and it had of course broken. so i re-solderd it only to find that now it makes an even more annoying buzzing noise, especially when plugged into a large amp. I immediatly went to a guitar center and bought my self a quality cable, monster to be exact, and have not been disappointed. I suppose this cable would work for connecting things that wouldn't really move (such as amps or effect peddals) but for connecting your guitar to your amp it just isn't up for the job. Unless you're into metal or something and like buzzing, or if you enjoy soldering more than playing your guitar than this is the cable for you. Other wise, don't pinch your pennies and buy something that you wont have to use the lifetime warrenty on, like a monster cable.

    Worldwide Cable Crisis

    By Aston

    from Boston

    Comments about Livewire Advantage Series 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

    As a 40 year veteran professional player I was stunned at the poor quality of these cables. The "Switchcraft" ends are now PLASTIC - not metal, even before the solder broke this thing couldn't make a decent connection with my amp and guitar. After three uses (or ATTEMPTED uses) the solder failed anyway and I just threw them away. Absolute crap!We are in a worldwide cable crisis. If even Switchcraft and Neutrik are using plastic ends, it may soon be impossible to purchase a reliable 1/4" cable. Does anyone know of a company that still uses metal ends?

    Only for Musicians

    By Telepounder

    from Chicago

    Comments about Livewire Advantage Series 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

    Belden wire, switchcraft ends, lifetime guarantee. These are meant for connecting guitars to amplifiers. They don't work well as jump ropes, lifelines, or tightropes. With the right amount of effort, they can be broken. They can also be easily repaired, or if you can't do that, they have a lifetimes guarantee against material defects, which does not include performance art.

    Worst cable out there

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Livewire Advantage Series 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

    They sound good but one little but step or tug on it and it's all over. I've had 3 of these and they are all broken. They are supposed to be a good quality cable but they are not durable at all.

    Decent Cable Low Price

    By Alex-44ry_

    from Seattle WA

    Comments about Livewire Advantage Series 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

    I've never had the same problems some other people are talking about. I got my cable about 2 years ago, and it still plays amazingly. My friends have had to replace Monster Cables as they got shot and my cable still sounds as great as the day I bought it. The insulation is great, it seriously cut down on the hum I got from playing in a garage with fluorescent lights. Also, for anyone talking about solder problems, there's a reason the ends screw off, so you can put a touch of solder on and have it be good as new. I haven't even had to do that yet though. I would highly recommend this cable.

    There's a reason they're so cheap...

    By yoinkguitarist01

    from Chi-Town, IL

    Comments about Livewire Advantage Series 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

    ...They're TERRIBLE!!!I thought I was getting a good deal, 18 bucks for 25 feet. WAY cheaper than monster cables. But after only 4 months of light playing (I don't even gig with this cable) the soldering on the plug broke and it became impossible to use. I am very disappointed in my purchase and will shell out the extra money if it means getting a lifetime warrantee.

    Decent Cable

    By Jred84

    from Fort Madison, IA

    Comments about Livewire Advantage Series 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

    I don't know how they stay in business because this cable went to crap after 3 uses. I have friends who have got these cables also, and they also had problems. I don't know if we just had bad luck, but we've had better luck with monster cables.

    Not Worth the Hassle

    By mobrulez

    from Central Pennsylvania

    Comments about Livewire Advantage Series 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

    The fact that these have a lifetime warranty is the only saving grace. I bought a pair of them and had to replace them after about 5-6 uses. One died on me during a show...not cool. So, if you want to save some cash on a cable with a lifetime warranty, go ahead--just be ready to replace them constantly. Instead, do yourself a favor and spend a few extra bucks. Better yet, buy all the components from George L's and make your own...they're much better quality and very easy to repair/replace.

    AWESOME CABLE

    By Rush Fan 2112

    from Tamaqua, PA

    Comments about Livewire Advantage Series 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

    My friend uses these cables for use with his Fender Stratocaster. He uses them as pedal couplers and as a normal cable. The original cable he had hummed a lot and just didn't provide a good sound. As soon as he got these cables you could see the difference. Buy this cable if you want a professional quality cable for a small price.

    Flimsy

    By Rugger91

    from Houston

    Comments about Livewire Advantage Series 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

    I have owned two of these in the past two months. Do not buy these, they break easily, and I use them lightly. They are not worth it.
