      Pedals and pedalboards are fascinating and frustrating in equal measure. There are limitless options of makes, models, and types of effects as well as the wide variety of pedalboards.

      Devising an arrangement that will provide the optimal signal path, maximize usefulness and accessibility, and stay solid through transport and use at rehearsals and gigs is more art than science, unique to each player, but one universally-accepted premise is that cables should be as short as practical. This kit allows custom-sizing of patches in order to preserve signal quality and minimize the mess.

      The process is simple: cut to length, attach an endpiece and tighten the anchor screw. I was dubious about the no-tools connection method but I tested with a multimeter and all is well.

      The included cutter does the job with some effort, but is rather flimsy as you might expect with a freebie. Most of us own proper wire cutters anyway. The anchoring screws are rather small and would be a bit of a nightmare in a low-light situation.

      The included cable is rather thick which means shorter-length patches (such as those between two pedals) can be tricky to bend into a U-shape.

      I bought these because I was being cheap and I got a deal whereas I woulda paid a lot more for the George L's version. They are easy enough to put together...the first time, after you realize that 3 out of ten plugs are bad you have to re cut them over and over again, hoping you don't gank the cable and break the connection inside.I only gave a 3 for feature because you only get right angle plugs, and they're HUGE! These take up quite a bit of space between pedals, and some straight plugs woulda been really useful. They help tonally, I'll give you that. I notice a massive loss of tone as I'm replacing these one by one, as they break during a gig and I have to go back to my noisy, but trusty cheap-o patch cables that cost 75% less money. I'm tough on my gear, but nothing else breaks as often as these do. I've had toilet papaer outlast em...To be fair, I've heard people say the George L cable kits do the same thing, but I see more touring and session pros that use em so they obviously must be superior. Nashville guitar players may lie like cheap rugs, but their pedal boards dont...

          Comments about Planet Waves Cable Station Pedalboard Cable Kit:

          I bought this kit to cut correct length cables for my pedal board. Over the months I'd have problems like noise or a pedal not working. I'd remove that cable and throw it in the corner of my room. I noticed yesterday that all 3 cables in the corner are Cable Station Pedal cables. It's hard to find cables that are the perfect length for your pedalboard, but I would search high and low before buying these.

            Comments about Planet Waves Cable Station Pedalboard Cable Kit:

            As a session/touring musician, my pedalboard in the past had always been a work in progress, with a mix of cabling I've tried over the years. I tried other 'build your own' kits and couldn't get cables to actually work, or the wiring is too thin. Couldn't stand them. Putting together a new pedalboard for an upcoming tour, a friend of mine recommended these Planet Waves cables. They seemed a little bulky, BUT I just wired up a PT Jr size board and am able to get 13 pedals on that size board with these cables! The quality is excellent. They were easy to install - first time, no issues, and the sound is great!

                Comments about Planet Waves Cable Station Pedalboard Cable Kit:

                I read some good reviews here and decided to give them a try when I needed to completely rewire my pedalboard to add a pedal switcher. These cables work just as advertised. Really easy to put together at any length you need. Even the plastic wire cutter made nice clean cuts. I love not messing with a soldering iron. It is, however, a good idea to test the ends with a multimeter to be sure the connections work before you wire everything up. But that would be true of any cable you make yourself.

                Only wish they gave you more ends. You can only make 5 cables with one box, so plan accordingly.

                      This is the second kit I've bought and will buy another if need be. The first kit has been in use for 3 years without a single failure. I've even taken cables apart to make longer one's and kept the shorter cable and re-used it with THE SAME holes previously made and still no failures. I recently added a midi switcher to my rig and needed more cables and did the research all over again and this is still the best deal. I rehearse and gig once a week so that's 4 car trips, set ups and tear downs a week and never a failure. I've done my fair share of studio work so I've had exposure to all of the big name cables and I can tell no difference between these and any of those. You will tell a difference between any quality cable vs. cheap cable for sure, but not these vs. mogomi etc... If you're on the fence, for what it's worth, I'd buy these a thousand times over.

                        I've never had A issue with any of Planet waves products. If you can cut a cable straight and turn a screw driver you can handle this. sound quality with any cable boils down to low capacitance in the cable used. less resistance / ohms. George L's has the lowest capacitance co-ax cable made that I know of but their R/A plugs do develope connection problems after a period of time "A month or two" This kit doesn't require you to bend the cable to put them together and I think that's where the problem with George L R/A plugs lay. I tried some of Planet waves classic series patch cables and found that cable to be clear as a bell too but they could stand for better plugs. this kit does the job well but like all solder less cables, your going to have a issue sooner or later but its less likely where no bending of the cable is required. Try them.

                          I thought too long about trying one of these and now Im happy I pulled the trigger. Its amazing how much it cleans up your board. I think they made my sound more balanced. I dont know if thats due to cable quality or taking out excess cable, but Im happy with it. Some say the price is a little steep. I agree I would have liked a couple extra right angle ends. However, Id say the cost is equal to the price of 5 decent quality cables youd buy anyway. I wish I had bought one of these kits instead of all my other cables through the years. Great product. Dont hesitiate to take a chance on them its easy and sounds great.

                                I've had these cables on my board for the past 4 years. I haven't had a single issue with these. I've used them over and over and not once did I have any issue. Don't know what all the fuss is about. Only reason I gave it a 4 was because I wished the connectors were skinnier. Other than that they work fine.

                                      Never used any product like this before but my pedal board has never looked as neat as it does now. I was apprehensive initially after reading some of the reviews that guys found these cables hard to make/assemble. Nothing could be further from the truth. Every cable worked perfectly the first try. The directions are simple and in less than 3 minutes from the time I opened the box I had completed my first cable. In fact, I have ordered a second set and my board will consist of nothing but cables cut to the exact size needed to make the best use of available real estate. The angled jacks and the cable are real quality stuff too. I would have given this product 5 stars if they would have provided enough jacks to make at least 8 cables but other than that I have no complaints.

                                      Pretty simple really. The connectors are high quality, they go together quickly. I like them.
                                      Easy to use. Comes with a cable stripper. Stick the cable into the connector & it holds on toght.
                                      The cable is a good grade. The connectors are gold plated, they plug in my effects snugly
                                      I think that is a fair price for the quality of the components. I bought a kit to try them out. I bought 2 more kits after that.
