With the Monster Standard 100, you'll use a cable that sounds as good as it looks. Whether you're gigging, tracking in the studio, or jamming in the garage, this is a great entry-level cable to get you started. It delivers the quality, durability, and reliability every musician needs—it's always ready to perform when you are.

The Standard 100 series cables feature heavy-duty injection molded connectors specially designed for strain relief to increase durability and resist damage. Hard nickel 1/4" connectors are durable and corrosion resistant and the ultra-flexible Duraflex protective jacket coils and uncoils effortlessly and is designed extra tough to resist breakage or cuts. Included swappable color-coded rings make cables easy to ID when you're plugging in multiple cables.

Internally, the Standard 100 cables feature precision coaxial design for accurate frequency response and wide dynamic range, while the 90% coverage copper-braided shield rejects RFI and EMI for a lower noise floor and increased resolution. With a carbon-infused dielectric cutting down microphonic pops and cracks and IsoTec vibration technology reducing handling noise, these cables are nearly dead quiet. A special copper winding provides improved clarity and tighter bass, even over long lengths.

This entry-level instrument cable delivers exceptional performance at an affordable price. Monster Standard 100 is a superior performance, general purpose instrument cable with improved durability and dynamic range.

the only reason that i don't give this monster cable a ten is that i know that there are higher quality cables out there for perfect studio recordings, but this is a real musician's cable. If you buy a cheaper cable you will pay for it! though a bit more expensive, monster cables offer a great warrantee and great sound. They come with a storage velcro and color coding rubber bands. If you have ever played a show where there is a bad cable you will know the value of a good cord that you can rely on and these are those cords.

Don't buy this. Spend a little more on something else. Don't buy any monster cable for that matter. Here's why: The cable will work for a time, but it WILL color your sound. You will lose the richness and depth of your tone and be flattened out. Even if you treat it well it will fail eventually, causing pops, crackles and silence when you move around. You might think you can just get it replaced under warranty at that point, but you're wrong. Every music shop employee has told me Monster is really stingy with their warrantees: the cable has to not conduct any signal at all for it to be replaced. In other words there is a large gab between a cable you don't want to use and a cable Monster will replace. Word to the wise, steer clear of all Monster products.

        Didn't fit right

          Best Uses

            Comments about Monster Cable S-100 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

            I tried 6 different ones of these cables and they all had the same problem: they did not "lock" into place in the jack (they would just fit loosely). I tried plugging them into 4 different amps, a digital work station, several guitars, and a drum machine, and they had the same problem on each one. I have never had this problem with any other cable I have ever owned (and I've had a lot of cables over the years, from the cheapest ones I could find to top of the line), so I was puzzled at this unexpected glitch. But after finding the problem on six of these (all 6 foot length), I decided to give up on Monster. Musician's Friend was very good about accepting returns for all of them, so I only had minor inconvenience.

                    Needed a reasonably priced cord that still had a great sound to get abused at practice and on stage, saving my gold Monster for the studio. This cord fills that bill perfectly.
                    And, I especially like how Monster cords can be color coded and come with a velcro cord minder to make moving and storing them easier.

                    I bought two of these a couple of months ago and they have both shorted close to the plug. What a waste of money. And I am very careful with cords. I've had most of mine for decades.
