One of four cables ordered had bad solder. Once I repaired the ends myself it worked fine. The wire and the ends are of average quality. Still cheaper than going to Radio Shack. Even if I had to reflow all the solder on them they are still cheaper than buying all the parts and assembling them myself.

    Low Quality Connectors

    By Montrose

    from New Carlisle, Ohio

    Comments about Musician's Gear 12-Gauge 1/4" - 1/4" Speaker Cable:

    1/4" connectors are low quality with thin walled sleeve and press fit construction. While in use between a power amp and stage monitor, connector was unintentionally cocked in the monitor jack and became intermittent. Upon examination, all internal connections were loose. I am replacing with SwitchCraft connectors. Cable appears to be good quality. Too bad junk connectors have flawed an otherwise good value speaker cable. I will not buy this brand again.

        Bought three of these to replace some old speaker cables I had for monitors, thought these would be better because they are 12 AWG. First time I used them, the solder connections broke inside the 1/4" plugs. Re-soldered them and about a month later, the tips broke off of the connectors. Complete waste of money, do not buy!

          For the money, these are easily the best I've found. Don't worry about the jacks, just take care of your equipment and these will last fine. Pull them out by the jack, not the cable, and you're good to go. Besides, if you don't take care of your gear, then you probably have a lot more to worry about than a cable jack anyway.

                We've used these cables for a couple years now and never had an issue. Good quality heavy duty cable at a great price. If I lost one tonight I'd buy another without hesitation or shopping around for anything else.

                    DO NOT BUY THESE

                    turned on my amp this morning & no sound. turned out to be the speaker cable. unscrewed the jack & white powder fell out, the wires at the solder connections are completely corroded & eaten through- looks like when an old battery leaks. but these are just cables.

                    i checked all 4 cables i bought 4 months ago & they are all the same or about to be. i used 2, the other 2 were backups that were never plugged in and still corroded. there's a reason they are 12 gauge 10 foot cables for this price- you get what you pay for. never again...i thought cables were fine so long as you took care of them. lesson learned.

                        Stopped working after two uses. Pulled the connectors apart and found that the solder joints on both ends were corroded. On one end the soldered wire just fell apart. I re-soldered both and it still buzzed. Called MF and they sent me a new replacement. Didn't have to send the old cable back. Kudos for MF.

                        The cable is formidable: heavy and apparently well made. Unfortunately, I had to disassemble the plugs and rework the connections. Not a big job, but one that should not have been necessary. The most annoying part was time wasted tracking down the new cable as the culprit causing awful buzzing in the amps.

                        Ya know after reading the negatives on the plug I thought well
                        If the cables are solid I'll go ahead and order switchcraft ends while
                        I am at it and replace em right away. But then the cables showed up
                        And honestly the plugs seemed fine, took em on a gig that weekend
                        And worked great, the switchcraft ends are still in their packages. These
                        Cables I thought were well worth the money

                                heavy guage and they work. because of the thicker gauge, you may have issues if your 1/4" out jacks are close to each other. these are wider/thicker than a standard instrument 1/4" cable/jacks.

                                The cable feels well constructed, works, and even came with a twist tie for easy gig cleanup.
                                It feels good, and works with my bass amp and cab.
                                Seems well constructed.
                                It does its job.

                                These are absolutely great cables to run from amp heads to cabs and for your Pa speakers, subs, etc. Big and tough 12 gauge, not little 16 gauge crap this is heavy duty and should last forever. Doesn't affect the tone at all. I have all my amps and all my speakers everywhere in my studio running through these. I thing... there not instrument cables!!! and have you seen the price? what a deal, buy these.

                                The cable seems good enough in quality. The TRS end jacks are crap and come loose instantly. I bought 4, and all ends came loose 1st time plugging them in. They still work, but you must be careful not to put strain on the cable to avoid breaking the connectors completely.

                                These cables are great. They're excellent for running in between monitors on stage or daisy chaining cabinets. However, my cables have different ends then what are pictured. I have stress reliefs on my cables. The tips are gold-platted and the end is very easy to fix if the solder were to come off. Although that hasn't happened yet.
