OVERVIEW

Right angle 1/4" connector to straight 1/4" connector.

The Planet Waves Circuit Breaker plug has fail-safe operation to save your equipment from loud pops and squeals when you change guitars with a live amp. When the button is pushed, the cable shorts while remaining plugged into your guitar, making on-stage guitar changes a snap, and eliminating any chance of sound bursts. Once the cable is shorted, remove the cable from the guitar being used and plug the cable into the next instrument. Press the button again to reactivate the cable signal.

Switch silently!

I've been using these for years and purchased this one to replace an old one that finally gave out after almost 10 years. I've read a couple reviews where users complained that the angle end wouldn't properly plug in and would pop out of the guitar jack. I've never had this problem and was a little concerned that newer versions might not be as good as the older, original design. My new cable works great with no issues whatsoever. I have two Charvels, a custom Strat and a PRS Custom 22, and the cable works with every guitar without a hitch. I'm thinking maybe lesser expensive guitars might be part of the problem. Manufacturers will always reduce the quality of the electrical components along with everything else to reduce the sell price of their guitars.

This Planet Waves Instrument Cable is very disappointing. The 90 deg. end will not stay plugged in - falls out! It is 1/64" shorter than others I have. Did measure it quite closely. Got it to plug into a front plug in guitar. Think their QC or design people missed on this one. Was going to send it back but with the shipping, etc. doesn't seem worth it. Have the same setup with a straight-straight and circuit breaker, it works just fine. Do see that the 90 degree end one is made different than the straight/straight shaft cable. Buy plenty from M-F and Planet Waves will be off my list. Feel that they owe me a operational 90-straight with a circuit breaker instrument cable, for sure.

      I've used this cable for a few years until switch stopped working. I ordered a new one and the switch was not working. I Sent it back for a exchange. Now this cable also has defective switch. Three strikes and I'm out.

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Circuit Breaker Cable Right Angle-Straight:

      I've had Planet Waves circuit breaking cables for several years, and have appreciated the durability of the cables and the ability to completely mute my instrument just by pressing the breaker switch. I bought this cable as I needed a shorter length. Unfortunately, it appears PW has redesigned this product. With this newer version, the breaker switch must be held in the depressed position to cut the signal. For me, this makes it awkward to change instruments without concern over speaker damage - if your finger slips off the breaker button, your speakers will be impacted. A disappointing design from my perspective.

          Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Circuit Breaker Cable Right Angle-Straight:

          I have about 5 planet waves cables in various sizes. The only right angle cable i have is about 10 feet long and needed a longer one so i went with this one. I have one other circuit breaker cable and it works great. The problem with this one is it doesn't have a compression fitting like my other ones and as soon as i plugged it into my Telecaster it immediately dropped out of the jack. I ran it through my strap hoping the tension from doing that would hold it firmly in place but it didn't work. Since it's a solderless connection i'll try to find a right angle compression fitting to replace this one so the cable isn't a total waste but right now it's worthless live. I'll use it just noodling around at home but it can't be trusted in a live setting.

            Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Circuit Breaker Cable Right Angle-Straight:

            I only wish there was a 15 foot version of the angled/straight cable. I haven't had any trouble with the fit on my G&L L2500. That bass is 13 years old now and my main work bass. The plug was staring to get a little touchy with some other cables I have with Neutrex plugs. (noisy) Not the case with the Planet Waves cable at all. I love the silent switching. Really great for quietly unplugging and re-plugging in active basses between sets. (Saves batteries)

              Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Circuit Breaker Cable Right Angle-Straight:

              I have the non-angled version and have never had a problem with it in my Fender Jazz Bass and various other instruments that I have to change on stage. Noise control is good. Sure, Monster Cables' top end are super for limiting noise, but I have to praise the cut-off feature in this cable. Why don't more manufacturers do something similar? If you use more than one instrument on-stage or unplug and re-plug with several instruments (not a great idea), this solves a major problem. If you are not playing something, cut it off and leave levels as they are. Your sound man will thank you. Your audience will thank you. I and I thank you.

                I use two different basses and need to change over and this eliminates the noise. One bass is uses active electronics and I'm hoping by turning off the cable the battery wont drain between sets while hooked up. Haven't had it long enough to see if that works.

                      Seems I told you this before.......this cable in not functional as in for most guitars. Pops out and will not stay engaged. I get emails from M/F on this cable frequently telling me what the latest person has to say on it. Do like the cable setup with the circuit breaker, works great if the cable stays in place. Not all is lost, if you have some time to modify it a bit. IT IS TOO SHORT ON THE SHAFT BY 1/16" so I filed the back end to make it a tad bit longer and works great for me. Come on Planet Waves get it right to begin with and all us guitar guys will be happy..

                        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.
