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.

            Comments about Musician's Gear Effect Pedal Coupler Straight:

            used em on my pedal board to reduce the number of patch cables I was using. they work well, did not add any noise, and allowed me to free up some space on my board. It may be worth mentioning that most of my pedals are the same type, so the straight couplers are useful for me. If your pedals don't line up the offset coupler may work. I also use some of these, even between pedals that are by the same maker because the inputs and outlets don't always match up. Plan accordingly.

              Couplers are easier to carry in a gig bag or guitar case. No cable wire to break or come disconnected. Conveniant to connect Guitar pedals together at a faster rate of time.

                Comments about Musician's Gear Effect Pedal Coupler Straight:

                There is absolutely nothing wrong with this product: however, when I bought these I also bought some of the off-set ones. The off-sets are much more versatile. Even effects of the same make do not always have the same height, especially on a soft board I believe they were the same price, so I'd go with the off-set.

                  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.
