I was originally searching around looking for good cables that wouldn't cost me an arm or leg and found it. Since I don't buy into the gold plated end nonsense - once it wears off you're left with nickel end- I went for something without the hype. This wire truly pays off, I can run around enough and not feel trapped -also have another 8ft cable or so running from my pedals to my amp. It doesn't kink up at all, and takes a beating and still no buzz. Definitely worth the money, buy it.

I have two of these, when I bought them in a local store, they seemed to be a great deal, great quality cable for a cheap price. And this is definitely the big advantage of these cables: they are not very expensive.

As for quality, my opinion is somewhat mixed...

The cable itself seems to be of great quality. It is quite thick and don't see it breaking anytime soon. I'm not a cable expert, but it seems properly shielded, I didn't noticed any noise made by thode cables. Not complaint about it so far.


However, I am concerned about the jacks: they always get unscrewed due to its design, if your cable get a little twisted while playing (which happens quite often in my case, I don't stand still when I play...), chances are the jacks will unscrew... Which will sometime cause some subtle crackle sounds to be heard in the amp as you move... Basically, I need to unplug the cable and screw it back jack every 20-30 minutes or so...Not great.

The rubber coating over the jack that goes a few inches over the cable broke on my main cable... The cable itself is still working fine but I had to tape it so it doesn't bend too much near the jack, it looks really cheap...

When the jacks are un unscrewed completely, the solder joint quality is not quite good. Not horrible, but they could've been cleaner... I have little experience in soldering(modified my Wah and made a switch strip pedal from scratch) and I make better solder joints..

The gold plated contacts thing is just a gimmick IMO. It wears off rather quickly after repeatedly plugging and unplugging the cable (I'm not lucky I guess, I have active pickups so I need to unplug the cables off my guitar when not playing...). My other cables, which use very good Neutrik connectors are not gold plated and they are definitely much better than these cables.




Overall, if you're short on money, or if you need a cable to plug from your pedalboard to your amp(or other uses where the cable doe not move a lot), it might be worth giving it a try, given the cheap price, otherwise I'd use other cables. As I said, the cables itselfs are fine, but the jacks are a real let down for me.

Highly Recommended Product

By Christianbass

from Birmingham, AL

Comments about Musician's Gear 18.5 foot Instrument Cable:

For the amazing price and lifetime guarantee the Road Hog 20 foot guitar cable is a great buy. I play bass guitar in the praise band at my church. I play live twice a week and this cable holds up great with the length that I want. I have had this cable for four months and am very satisfied. I highly recommend this product.

Lasted for 2 Rehearsals and Not Even One Gig

By Brandon-FTUCx

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Musician's Gear 18.5 foot Instrument Cable:

This thing crapped out on me during a sound-check at the first gig on a tour. I didn't even think to bring a back-up because I've never had a problem with an instrument cable and didn't expect to have a brand new one completely quit on me. Luckily the sound guy had an extra 1/4 inch he let me use for the night.

Wouldn't Buy

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Musician's Gear 18.5 foot Instrument Cable:

I bought this cable for my Bass a couple months ago thinking good price, but after 2 months it just cut out in the middle of a gig. It was good while it lasted but I'm going to stick with my Live Wire Advantage Series cables.

not recomended

Comments about Musician's Gear 18.5 foot Instrument Cable:

I bought two of these cables about 6 months back thinking they would hold up at least for a while. I gig fairly often and these are definitely not road worthy. Granted they are fairly inexpensive, but I'm wasn't impressed with the quality. All of the connections on both cables have become loose and the signal cuts out unless you can get the plug to stay in one specific spot...very annoying when playing live. I've since ordered different cables. If you don't gig or not often they would probably last a bit longer, but they didn't work for me.

They last about 3 or four years.

By Mike B

from Pa

Comments about Musician's Gear 18.5 foot Instrument Cable:

I have mine for about four years now, and where the wire connects to the connector, it is starting to break because of some slight bending in the wire. They are alright if you don't move them every day, but if you use them everyday without jamming the ends of it into the wall, it will be just fine.

By Anonymous

Comments about Musician's Gear 18.5 foot Instrument Cable:

I've had two, with the first one the connection in the tip broke almost immediately, so I replaced it. With the next one I got too far away from my amp, and instead of coming unplugged the top broke off and stayed in my input jack which I had to take apart. When they weren't broken the sounded ok not buzz free but fairly quite.

LiveWire Roadhog Instrument Cable

Comments about Musician's Gear 18.5 foot Instrument Cable:

This cable has no company or product name on it. It just says "high performance cable made in China". I just started using my 4th Livewire Roadhog instrument cable. The first three were "dead on arrival". This one started buzzing very loud after using it about 7 times. I don't gig. I just play at home. I treat my equipment with care. I originally bought this cable because I thought it was the same as another Road Hog cable I have that has worked fine for over a year. That one is labled "Road Hog cable - made in USA by VTG Audio". With 4 bad cables in a row, what does that say about quality control.

Awesome!

By ZapZap2010

from Wimberley, TX

Comments about Musician's Gear 18.5 foot Instrument Cable:

This cable is by far worth the price and the quality. They bend very easily. I have had no problems with mine. Sounds just as good as my other livewire, and better than my Fender Califoria Cables.
