Multi-gauge Time Correct windings with special dielectrics and ultra-dense shielding deliver smooth, powerful low end. Ordinary instrument cables can rob your bass of its fundamental low-end punch. They're not made to meet the specific needs of today's bassist. Monster Bass is designed specifically for bass guitar. Dual heavy-gauge bass conductors and patented multiple-gauge wire networks deliver extended low-end frequency response and wide dynamic range. Patented MicroFiber dielectric provides quick transients and full harmonics, while dense shielding reduces interference and hum.

FEATURES
  • 2 thick bass conductors improve voltage and current transmission for maximum punch and an extended low end.
  • MicroFiber inner dielectric provides better isolation of magnetic fields for improved harmonic detail
  • 95% coverage copper braided shield rejects RFI and EMI for a lower noise floor and increased resolution
  • IsoTec vibration isolation technology further reduces handling noise
  • Extra-flexible Duraflex outer jacket for superior reliability and cut resistance
  • 24k hard gold-plated 1/4" connectors with collar strain relief are durable and corrosion-resistant

I bought this cord for my wife who plays bass. She has owned a shorter bass Monster cable for many years and had no problems at all; it still works fine. She needed a new cord to connect from her processor to the bass, and the other Monster is used to connect from the processor to the amp. When the Monster connection was complete, the preamp had to be turned down on the amp due a stronger signal level which was clipping. After that adjustment, things were working great. Next, the eq needed adjustment since more bass frequencies were coming through. Overall, the entire frequency range increased. There is definitely more depth to the sound. These are objective measures that couldn't be ignored. I would say we noticed the difference.

I'm writing to anyone who has bought into the hype of monster cable. Stop paying for the "monster" name. While these are great sounding cables they are trash, this is the most unreliable cable I have ever owned. I bought a store brand cable 15 years ago and have never had to worry about it shorting out on me, but I have owned 2 of these monsters and for less than 3 years and I have had to take them back 3 times because they shorted out. And I am anal about how my gear is taken care of. I can't rely on these for a show so I now feel like I wasted money, and I'm stuck with two cables I can't use live. So please don't buy into the hype monster has feed us, they put a warranty on their product because they know it will break.

        I did a back and forth comparison test with my old cable and I really noticed a difference in tone quality. The Monster cable was clearly better.

          Comments about Monster Cable Bass Instrument Cable Straight-Straight:

          I just started playing bass last year and though I lack the years of experience playing, I knew that my bass was capable of much better sound. My old cable (not the thin one that came with the bass) was starting to cut out and made humming and static when I played. When I got this cable I was so pleased at the improvment, louder clearer bass end, no noise, pure joy to play!

              In my career I have bought two of these cables. Neither has let me down. Great quality gold plated plugs, well shielded cable, and it can take abuse. What's not to like?

              I cannot tell a big difference with a gigging rig....makes huge difference with a practice amp, though! It really thickened up the bottom and tamed the top...using an acoustic b20 for practice that is.

                      Some people will tell you a cable is a cable, not true. High quality cables DO make a difference in your sound and are well worth the money. I was using my Monster Rock cable for my bass guitar and wanted to try the Monster bass cable and I can certainly tell a big difference. If you play bass, you need to buy this cable, of course, having a good amp helps alot too.

                      Comments about Monster Cable Bass Instrument Cable Straight-Straight:

                      I'm not the easiest on equipment and the side body jack input of my bass probably isn't the easiest on cables. My likes: their support and the sound. Dislikes: quality.
                      I can't really say that I notice the sound difference but I'm still happy with the product
                      I recently purchased the straight to straight because I've had issues with my two sets of 21' straight to angled. Don't ask why I have two sets - too embarrased to say that I thought I had lost one so ordered another. Good thing that I had two though because I've had to send them back 3-4 times over the course of 8 years. Other reviewers said the straight to straight were more dependable so that's my story. Carry a spare!!
                      I have to say that their support is steller. Never a question in replacement. Shipping it back isn't cheap though. You would think that for the price that these should be bomb proof.
                      Yea, they are expensive but it's worth it for me to sound as good as possible and cut through the mix.

                      i havent owned this cable long, but so far, its been holding up great. im using a rogue 5 string and this cable makes it sound really good. it said to inhance low frequencies and it does just that. great bass tone, great durability, and a lifetime warranty, cant beat that!
