    I used the custom series with the compression springs for years, but decided to try the custom pro line. I bought this cable and compared it back and forth with my custom series PW cable. There were less "artifacts" in the sound. Seemed like there was extra hiss and distortion in the Custom pro. The Custom Pro also seemed to have more mids present. Overall, I think this is the best cable PW makes and one of the better store bought ones you can get.I have used PW cables for years, but I think there is better out there. After talking to many people and reading many reviews, I think I am going to go with Canare cables. I will compare them to the Custom Pro line, but I have a feeling there will be an improvement, and for a cheaper price as well.

    Poor cables add noise

    Bought four of these cables a while back for my pedalboard snake.

    Bought four of these cables a while back for my pedalboard snake.

    -> Wireless Run
    -> FX Send
    -> FX Return
    -> Amp in

    Using the planet waves cables, extra noise was introduced into my chain- both static and when clicking on pedals. When I switched out the planet waves cables with some old monster gold cables, the noise disappeared in both instances. The only thing that changed was the planet waves cables to monster cables.

    Anyways, I would NOT recommend these cables to anyone- they're noisy, which is inexcusable for any musician, pro or novice.

                  In the past I've used Monster cords. This cord is much more durable. I'm still using the original purchase, and would have went through 2-3 monster cords by now. Bought this one as a backup just to be safe. I guess I'm just gun shy after using Monster cords!

                    I put them through a lot every week. The last time I bought these was 4 years ago... longer than any other cables have lasted for me. Clubs, fairgrounds, booze, dirt, good intentioned helpers wrapping them too tight, etc. They took all the abuse and lasted longer than I thought they would.

                      This cable causes my amps to transmit an AM radio signal. It gets much worse when an overdrive or fuzz pedal is engaged, but the signal is still there if I plug straight into the amp from the guitar. I am very displeased given the price.

                          Comments about Planet Waves Gold-Plated 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

                          Bought one a couple years back. Only cut out on me when my actual guitar jack was acting up. Thick cord, easy to untangle when you throw it all over the place. Not too expensive. Mine's been trampled before while rehearsing and the signal stayed strong for the most part. I would definitely buy another one, if for no other reason than some other cables are so expensive. Good quality for the money, no doubt about it.

                          twisted and useless

                          see quality
                          I bought two of these 10' and use them live 1-2 times per week. I really liked the cord, which is why I bought another as a back-up and/or use with my acoustic. After six months, the main one became so twisted that it looks like it was designed with a braid. My back-up is starting to show the same problem. I think the culprit is the shielding, which apparently can't handle people like me who move on stage. The rating is because of the cost. If I had bought a cheap cord, shame on me, but I spent the extra bucks and got stuck anyway.
