These are basically the cheapest possible 1/4 cords anyone could possibly manufacture and sell. They are also (so far) reliable and clean sounding, which I didnt expect at this price. Worst case scenario I spent about 60 cents per jack and have to resolder them to better cables after they break. So far Ive had no problems at all. Ive noticed no hiss, interference, blips in connection, etc. I havent had them long, so no word on longevity. My only complaints: -maybe less colors per batch, 2-3 different colors would be much easier to colorcode my chains. Im going to buy 3 more packs for my experimental rig, then I'll have 4 of each color. -more options for length. 17' is a little too long for my guitar fx and left me with some slack. I gave them 2.5 on features because they dont have unscrewable 1/4 jacks, but thats not a complaint because theyd be a lot more expensive if they did that.

I bought the right angle version. These cables look and feel good. When they work, they sound good. For some applications they are fine, but it depends on your gear. Depending on the jack in a particular piece of equipment, it may or may not work. In some jacks, the plugs do not make good contact and are intermittent if they are rotated. This has nothing to do with the wiring. It has to do with the way the plug seats in the jack due to the shape of the tip of the plug and the length before it hits the stop. The shape of the metal part of the plug itself is slightly different than every other cable I have and the tip does not make good contact with the jacks in musical equipment because the shape of the tip deflects the plug to the wrong depth inside the jack, either too far or too short and rotating the plug just slightly will cause the signal to cut out. This happens with every end of all 8 cables and can be verified with a cable tester (rotate the plug and it shows the signal is intermittent). I was able to force the plug to work properly by shimming the end of the cable so that the plug just barely can't seat all the way and it works fine then, but I really shouldn't have to shim a cable to make it work. Even the cheapest, worst quality junk cable I own doesn't have this problem. Only these, and again, it's every plug on every cable. Due to the item being so inexpensive, it was not even worth returning it. I would recommend spending a little more money and getting anything else. It's not worth hours of your time dealing with a problem like this the way I did just to save a few dollars.

Good price, good cables.

Comments about Musician's Gear 1/4 - 1/4 Patch Cable 8-Pack (17"):

I needed a just a couple of cords this long on my pedalboard and these fill the bill. Checked them all when they came in and a couple of them didn't meter up just right, but weren't far enough off to really worry about. I'm keeping them all for extras as the board always seems to expand while I sleep.

Comments about Musician's Gear 1/4 - 1/4 Patch Cable 8-Pack (17"):

They are inexpensive but not flimsy, although I wouldn't use them for something that gets moved a lot or that is constantly re-patched or if you are rough on cables. The only real complaint I have is that the plugs are kind of long so you still can't get your pedals all that close even though they are right angle plugs.

        Comments about Musician's Gear 1/4 - 1/4 Patch Cable 8-Pack (17"):

        I was looking for some pedal connectors that are longer than the standard sizes to rig up my effects pedal board. Price is always a concern for me and I wasn't going to spend a lot of money for one cable. I saw these and figured I'd give them a shot. Rigged up the pedal board with some of these, (I only needed to use 2) and was ready to hear some hiss or noise because they are so cheap but I was pleasantly surprised! The sound quality wasn't compromised and the right angle tips were perfect for this use.

            Shopped around, and this was far away the best deal on patch cords I could find. Plug them in and they work! And if one doesn't work, for this money you can afford to plug in another.

            Anybody can tell that these cables are not the best quality but, these should suffice to reach a hard to get pedal. I could not have made these for the price I paid. I've used a couple of these on my pedal board and, they are quiet and, hookup nicely. I would not consider using these in an application where there was going to be movement of plugging in and out continously but, left alone they should work fine.

              So let me get right to the point, They do not last long at all. I was only using these for practice at home did not even move them around much once they where connected. I did move them around a little every now and then, i started having trouble a few days later. At first I thought my battery was going out in my guitar because the sound started going away and then cutting out, but I found out it was the cables. I have used 4 cables already and on my 5th one. The thing is I thought ( MAN WHAT A GOOD DEAL )8 for a good price ( can't tell you the price because of review policy ).they are a waist of your money it took awhile to find out they are real cheap because I used them one at a time. still have 3 and it is real hard to find 18"cables so I will use them till I don't have anymore left. them I guess spend lot more money for better one maybe one with a life time warranty
