I've had a pair of these for 5+ years and never had a problem that would prevent them from cabling as they should. My girl and even visitors are VERY prone to stepping on my cables, on top of tile floors and carpet (maybe it's even worse to have some cushioning?) and these have never shorted and still sound good. A review said they kink which is impossible; the rubber covering is far too stiff to kink (but not stiff enough to prevent easily getting them into a good 4-5" coil for hanging, OCD studio guys). In fact they occasionally "stand up" due to being twisted at one end or another, particularly if you obsessively coil the slack like me and then need a little more, but that's actually a plus in the favor of durability (cheap cables' rubber just indian-burns and causes shorts). I do however have two small gripes about these cables: 1) the "amphenol" labeled jack covers, though attractive and professional looking, have a tremendous tendency to unscrew slightly every so often... not enough to come loose of course but it drives me nuts and I have to immediately screw them back down tight. The pro to this con is that if a cable were to break it's almost always at the jack and this screw-on cover would make it easy to re-solder and screw back on seamlessly (if I ever needed to, but again have not). This again ends up being a plus in the durability column. Gripe 2) After about 4 years of almost daily use, the rubber stress reliefs at the back of the jack bent enough to break off, and now I have little sliding grommets on my cable, but the coating up and down the cable is as solid as the day I got them. There may be better cables but these weren't expensive, and most importantly, have lasted through a lot of beating, so I endorse them. The bad reviews sound like any bad reviews for an otherwise good product: quality control. Just return them and try again. It's worth it to have cables that you don't have to buy over and over after standard studio/stage use, but what a cheap cable company would pass off as "misuse" and never cover under any warranty.

The plugs are great but the cable itself is very thin and prone to coiling and cable 'memory.' The shielding isn't bad, especially considering the size, but it's not great either. I can feel the shielding unwinding at several points just from minor twisting. For the same price or slightly more you could buy Lava/Monster/Dimarzio/PLanet Waves/LiveWire cables that are all much better.

Comments about Mogami Silver Series 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

Mogami Silver Series 1/4" Instrument Cable - 12'
At first glance these cables seemed a bit 'cheap' but once plugged in I had realized I bought a quality product, and had to buy more. My band has used hundreds of cables, and over time, it seems they all go bad. These are by far the best sounding, and I've never heard so much as a crackle from any of them in well over a year when I first started using them. The cables themselves seem a bit 'thin' but you want thin instrument cables to minimize resistance and maintain purity of your signal. They are also strong and flexible.

You could pay more and get a quality product, but I am willing to bet that the majority of people who buy expensive cables are suffering from 'placebo' effect and couldn't pick them out in a blind sound test.I once went to a high end audio store shopping for speaker cable. The salesman was selling the idea that anything hooked up to Monster Cable turns to gold, and I told the salesman if he could convince me (with the salesman listening in a blind test) that his Monster Cable could perform better than my 12 gauge electric cable that I bought for $10, that I would buy $1000 worth of Monster Cable. He couldn't. You don't need a $300 cable made out of gold plated unicorn feathers to get a good sound.

    Mogami Silver Guitar Cable

    By MTreehugger

    from Undisclosed

    Ask me a question

    Comments about Mogami Silver Series 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

    All my life I've been skeptical about the notion that a guitar cable will affect your tone, but after hearing all the buzz about Mogami, I decided give the 12' mogami silver a try.

    #1 -- I was wrong. You can hear the difference.

    #2 -- You're better off with a cheap cable than with this piece of junk. There's a term for it, and that term is signal loss. I A/B'd this cable with 3 other cables I've had for years, one of which had an intermittent buzz to it, and all three were louder and had better highs. This cable attenuates both the signal and the upper frequencies. I can't believe anybody anywhere would want a cable that causes a loss of tone. I returned mine for the cheapest Rapco GF sells, and it's much better.

    The old saying "you get what you pay for" isn't necessarily true. I'd also like to point out another term for other reviewers of this cable: placebo effect.

    I couldn't be more disappointed in a cable (unless I paid even more than I did). If you are a guitarist with fully functional hearing in the normal range, care about your tone, and don't like throwing your money away, buy anything but this.

        from Golden, CO

        Comments about Mogami Silver Series 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

        Well they claim to be "revered by audio professionals." But those audio professionals must have been drunk when they used these cables. The only practical use of these cables is to make a noose and hang yourself. But even still they're such bad quality that they'd probably tear and you'd be stuck with a failed suicide attempt and a $** reciept for something entirely unusable...

        Comments about Mogami Silver Series 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

        These cables are decent. The rubber outer insulation is much more flexible that other cables I've used. The gold plating on the jacks is nice and boosts your tone and the jacks are also very sturdy. I got this cable hoping to reduce RF noise but nothing changed. I've got less hum and feedback with $12 LiveWire cables. These cables will boost your tone but unless your already running a noise gate pedal this pedal will cause a lot of RF noise.

        Comments about Mogami Silver Series 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

        Never had an issue with this cable. I've seen Monster cables break-off at the jack so I'll never spend that much on a cable again. Cable's take abuse if you play live, that's just a fact. Some will break, some will die. I try to find a happy medium between quality and price and this one gives the best of both worlds. Livewires will have the occasional baddy, but are also a good value because they'll replace it with a new one.
        I just don't belive in spending alot on something that will go bad no matter what, and you'll always need to have spare cables on hand. Get 2-3 of these instead of one 'high quality' cable and you'll be set.
        A good straight-up cable. I really like it's flexibility. Soft cable.
        I use two in my rig and have never had an issue with noise or reliability.
        Good cable at a good price.

        Comments about Mogami Silver Series 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

        These cables are thin and get tangles easy. There is also a loss in the highs. BUT..I always grab for it cuz I like the treble roll off and they are lightweight and easy to use. Go figure.... I find high end cables - which I have - too bright. These are not at all dull cables I actually like the tone they give. Cheap M friend brand cables are shrill...these are not.
        I've gigged with these. They can take a beating even tho they are thin as hell.
