I've had the 20 something foot cable for about a couple years now. While this cable is probably the future of cables to come, its very flawed. The circuit breaker part works very well. Its basically a button on the end of the plug that allows you to "turn on" or "turn off" your cable so you won't hear the pop sound or any feedback from plugging in your cable. That part seems very sturdy and functional. Also my guitar tone sounds very good through it. I think theres less noise than my cheaper cables. Other than that though its not the greatest cable out there. The main thing that bothers me about it is the way they connect the plug to the cable. Its only held by a slotted screw that allows your plug to slip from the cable. While this ease of construction may be good for the diy cable people who want a specific length, its a pain for any guitarist that tugs on their cable from regular use. Honestly I've had mine slip out of the plug atleast once a week from normal use. And when that happens you have to unscrew the screw on the plug, strip the rubber from the cable about 3/4" and stick it back in there. I've probably lost atleast a few feet because of the reinstalling of the plug to the cable. Also the rubber isn't very thick, causing the cable to slightly pop when it hits against something, which can be annoying. So while this cable is a good innovation, I wouldn't recommend it until D'addario comes out with a improved circuit breaker cable.

I own two Planet Waves Circuit Breaker Series Instrument Cables. The circuit breaker function is awesome and the cable and connector quality is superb. However, the shape of the connector prevents it from fitting in some guitars.

My Gibson SG forcibly ejects the cable. If you are wondering if it is a guitar problem, it is not. Google it. Other famous manufacturers of quality guitars similarly eject the cable. My Fender, Monster, and no-name cables all work fine in that guitar. Other series of Planet Waves cables also work well in the SG.

              Just bought this as a gift for another musician. I've been using one for over 10 years with no problems. Eliminates pops when plugging in or changing instruments. Allows you to mute the instrument. Easy to feel with your finger whether the switch is on or off.

              Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Circuit Breaker 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

              and finally after a couple instances of needing to contact planet waves I can say they are legit and HIGHLY recommended
              -sound quality
              -lifetime warranty
              -circuit breaker
              -24k gold, magnetic ends
              First off I got this cable about a year ago if not more, it was to replace the cable i touch most (instrument to gt-8) which therefor i tend to need to clip the ends the most for simple maintenance. I went with this 20ft circuit breaker and couldn't be happier.
              I've since removed all other non-planet waves, and only use planet waves. I am not some rich musician that can afford monster cables or even some of the planet waves cables BUT I highly recomment making that efford to get better sound quality for your signal.. its too worth it.

              The title says it all! These cables (and planet waves in general) are pretty great and high quality. The unique quality about these is there is no sodering required! if the end near the jack splits or frays, simply undue the jack (one slotted screw) cut the frayed piece off then twist the jack back on and screw it in. Its simply brilliant! Love these cables and love their quality plus the circuit breaker has never crapped out on me. Hope this helps.

              Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Circuit Breaker 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

              I got 2 of the 20' Circuit Breaker cables about a month ago and I love them. I was using cheap cables before and I can hear a bit better signal coming through with these. Gold conductors are great for instrument cables and these have that. The "circuit breaker" part of the cable works wonderfully. This is great because I change guitars a lot. The click of a button gives me beautiful silence. The cable itself is really durable, not extremely flexible but not stiff either. The ONLY problem I have with these is that they slide out of my older Ibanez guitars because the jack is bigger and that isn't the cables fault. Great cables, well worth the cash even though I hate to drop $50 on a cable, it's better than a Monster.

              I used to use Planet Waves cables a whole lot. I loved the idea of the circuit breaker, I still think its genius. However Me and my friend have had the same problem with planet waves cables, they seem to short out somewhere in the line, regardless of what kind of planet waves cable it was. They were generally pretty reliable and the warranty is nice since most of mine shorted out at some point. Id recommend Monster cables at this price however Planet Waves is a nice runner up

              I had one for years and they replaced it with no problem. The sound quality is great, it doesn't add or take away tone.And if you're playing loud at a gig, that button feature will save your speakers from an early death.
