A lot of the other reviews complain about this couple not working with different brands of pedals. All I have to say to that is DUH. This is a straight coupler for two pedals with the same jack-height. If you want to connect two different brands of pedals, there is an offset coupler which is perfect for that! That being said, this little guy works perfectly. I use these (including the offset ones) to connect all my pedals.

I have been through 3 sets of pedal couplers having bought 8 each, and I thought these gold ones would be a sweet deal, but, none of them, especially the offset ones, have straight barrels on the plugs, they are ALL off straight. It places undo tension on the jacks and I had to just drop them all. Only one worth a crap I have is the Hosa right angle offset and that one does not work with stereo jacks as it cannot clear the jacks between pedals. There are some applications but so far all couplers suck.

Great Way To Clean Up Your Pedal Board

    Comments about Musician's Gear Effect Pedal Coupler Straight:

    Anytime I can eliminate a cable, I will. With cables, it's never "if", but "when" will they fail.

    Enter these couplers. Using these between your pedals gets rid of a piece of wire and some solder connections. Fewer points of failure. And since the signal is fully shielded (some cables are only 60% shielded), you've got better protection against noise getting into your signal chain.

    The downside to using these straight couplers is mechanical. The output and input jacks of the pedals you're hooking up together have to be at the same height. If you're using multiple pedals from the same manufacturer, it's normally not a problem. In my case, I have 3 MXR Bass pedals I'm hooking up together, and these couplers work perfectly.

    If you need to hook up pedals with different input/output jack heights, there's an offset version of this coupler that will work perfectly in the application. I use an offset coupler when going from my last MXR pedal into a Pitch Black tuner.

    Clean up your pedal board and clean up your signal. Check out these couplers.

      Too short when used with side-mounted Power Supply cables, needed a 6" patch cable instead.

          Saves space in your pedal board (always at a premium). Use this one for pedals with jacks of the same height and placement.

              This is a no brainer if you have a brain which apparently the negative reviewers do not possess. The pedals must be the same dimensions and orientation. Other than that plug and play.

                Comments about Musician's Gear Effect Pedal Coupler Straight:

                If you have all of the same pedals in a fitted pedal board, say all boss in a boss board then they make sense, but most pedals are different height and a straight coupler will cause strain on jacks when engaging a pedal and when simply trying to arrange the setup of your pedal board. Looks clean however.

                Good easy use , but place something thin , & soft under pedals of different jack heights ,so as not to bend or stres pedals or , the connectors., Makes a few pedals easier to deal with.

                I use the same brand of pedals for everything. I thought these would work perfectly for my pedals and they did. These are tough and very reliable, they do exactly what they are supposed to do, I can't say enough good about them.

                  If you use a chain of several effects boxes by the same brand (I use BOSS pedals) wich allow a straight connection from output to input, these little coupler eliminates hard bent cords and allows effects to be mounted closer together, saving room on the pedalboard. These also make the pedalboard look more professional. The price is right and the couplers are durable. Fve stars!!!

                      Like I said in my heading. They work and save space over longer patch cables and allow you to get more effects into a smaller space. The quality is great.
