OVERVIEW

An instrument cable that reduces both signal noise and single-coil pickup noise.

The Pro Co Lifeline Line Instrument Cable is constructed based on transmission line theory. In a nutshell, using a 4-conductor microphone cable to replace a single-conductor guitar cable, Pro Co solders the cable's 2 red conductors (red and red with white stripe) to the tip on either plug, and then solders the cable's 2 black conductors (black and black with white stripe) to the ground on either plug.

Pro Co then solders the shield to the ground on the amplifier end and lifts the ground (do not solder) on the instrument end. This helps to shunt most of the noise that jumps on the shield to chassis ground before it becomes part of the signal path.

The Pro CO Lifelines cable defends the world from guitar players with noisy single-coil pickups and helps quiet them”the pickups; not the guitar players”down to a usable commodity before the drummer shoots the guitar player.

The white end of the Pro Co instrument cable goes into your guitar and the black end of the cable goes into your amplifier.

I would like to say i have been using these cables after using some cheap ones and they DO ELIMINATE alot of excess hum (due to the specialized ends identified on the cable)I have not experienced wrapping, bending, crimping, bloating, fatigue or any other thing possible to find default in a cable. They really let my guitars tone shine through and i compared them with monsters THE MONSTERS HAD MORE HUM!My only gripe is that well....i was cheap and bought short cables lol. Its easy to forget about a 10 foot cable when your jamming out...but it happens...alot lol. Just dont be a dummy like me and buy the right cable length for you. Until i go wireless, i will only use these.P.S- Alot of cord winding can come from things like exposure to sunlight for too long. As a musician (and a self made guitar tech, and a good one so im told) I'm fully aware of the damage a little sun can do. I even keep my cables round-wrapped and place them in a hi-hat case.....MULTITASKERS PEOPLE! Take care of your satuff and itll take care of you....especially these cables.

I got the 15ft Lifelines Line Instrument Cable on the stupid deal of the day. At my house I have a problem with the power causing hum, so i decided to give this a try since it was so cheap. The bottom line is that these cables didn't really help me with my hum issue. It may have been very slightly better, but there was not an easily noticeable improvement. It seems like they were also maybe slightly noisier than the cables is was previously using. Also, They don't seem to make a very good connection with guitar OR the amp. Sometimes (almost randomly) if you move the guitar, bump the cord, etc, it will cause a crackling and popping. But, when i wiggle the cord again, to try to reproduce the same problem, it doesn't do it. Very weird. So, I guess you could use this in a live situation, but, I sure wouldn't use this in the studio because of the noise and a bad connection that seems to randomly appear.

Get Used too Tangleling

By Jex.o.d.d.777

from L.A. area

If you despise long 30 ft cables tangleling all the time, then maybe you're better off paying more for a monster cable. Other than that, these have been the best quarter inch male to male cables I have encountered so far. The Quality is bar none, and the price is satisfactory for its quality. For active or struggling musicians that are moving a lot, I recommend no more than a 20 ft cable.

Don't waste your money

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I bought 2 of these, with the right angle instrument end to replace my 15 year old pro co cables that finally had to be retired. Not even close. These cables twist and tangle like no other i have ever seen, impossible to use in a live situation, even if you don't move around much. I end up using them in my studio to make some permanent connections where they'll never move. No problems with sound quality, but not worth the hassle.

Quite Cables

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I purchased the cable for the possible noise reduction. It worked! I have an old tube Amp that loves to hiss when you take your finger off the string. The lifeline cable reduced the hiss to almost nothing. The cable jacket could be a little softer, but overall the cable performed above my expectations.

Not what they use to be

By FlyingZ

from Eau Claire, WI

I purchased four 25'cables with good luck. I threw this one in with the road rig without testing it first. On first use there is major noise coming from the middle of the cable and the short warranty is up.I will not purchase another.

Not a pro cable

By TiredOfTheNoise

from Wichita, KS

I wanted a quiet cable for my guitar that would not pick up surrounding static and electrical noise. I ordered this cable because it is supposed to be quiet. This cable is the second noisiest cable I have. It is also micro-phonic. When I jostle the cable, the noise is transmitted into my amp. The hum and hiss when not plugged into my guitar is louder than I want. My Fender brand cable is quieter than this one. I have a no name brand cable that is about the same. I would not recommend this cable if you are looking for a quiet cable.

Alright

By somethingloud

from San Antonio, TX

These cables are ok. The rubber is very stiff making them twist and coil very easily which gets annoying. the sound quality is fine. they work fine i just wouldn't purchase them again...

Great long lasting cable.

By BassStylee

from Pennsylvania

I've had mine for about a year now, without a single problem. It's a great cable and I'd recommend it to anyone's who's having trouble with low-quality cables. Buy this and your set.

Great cables

By X-50

from Fairmont, WV

I've had mine for a long time now (I remember them being slightly cheaper back then). They've been stepped on, had tables sat on them, amps sat on them, yanked out by people, etc. and never have they given out on me. Still sounds as good as the day I got it, even the outside of the cable is in good shape, some dirt, but no tears at all. Pro Co and Spectraflex were all I used, but I can't find SpectraFlex anymore. But I'm probably going to just keep on with these. All these years and abuse and it keeps going. That says quality to me.

Great Cables, Great Company

By Mainburner

from Ingomar, PA

Durable, great sounding cable. Looks cool also. I also like the way they coil for storage and transport...they never kink! I had one that had a little buzz so I sent it back to ProCo and they sent a new one in a few days with no problems, no hassles. I can't find a reason to not love these cables...
