I have been using these cables for several years now for everything. Guitar to pedal, pedal to pedal and pedal to amp. I have never had a problem, and if you do they will replace it. I gig and rehearse about 3 times a week. Looking at some of the bad reviews, I don't know what these people are doing with these cables. The ends will unscrew with rough handling as they are meant to be removeable. If this is a problem this can easily be solved with a little silicone on the threads.

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.

    Connector housing is knurled and fits well in your hand. Last 3 inches of cable is protected with a blue jacket, shrink-wrapped for durability and looks cool ! I'm not hard on my equipment, so this cable might outlive me :)

          Worldwide Cable Crisis

          By Aston

          from Boston

          See all my reviews

          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?

          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...

          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.

          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.
