      Comments about Live Wire Cable Tester:

      It's such a big help to be able to test cables, especially before a gig. I run the sound at an annual house concert party where 10 or 12 acts perform. Lots of cables have accumulated over the years. With this box I can very quickly and easily test each cable as I connect it. The box is solid, easy to use. The 1/4 cable reading is a bit confusing, and I was not able to find any documentation online. However, after testing several "known good" cables it's easy to see what pattern on the LED indicates normal good wiring.

                  My first cable tester. Right out of the box, I was able to track down a few problem cables in my rig. Very simple to use. Seems very well made and plenty durable to toss in my road bag. Runs off a single 9v battery. Very happy with this, especially at this price.

                  this works very well. i listed 2 cons but i am sure future versions will have these new connectors. by now could also use a mini hdmi port too. would replace and recommend. i checked the improves sound box because now you wont have crackling cables because of the cable!

                        Great device...nice to have that safety net when you're out on a gig instead of guessing if your cable is bad.

                          Comments about Live Wire Cable Tester:

                          The unit is not a wimpy box. It is sturdy as are the connections. While it is in your lap, you plug the wires into both sides of the box and then wiggle them as much as you want. If the light blinks, your wire is bad. Easy as pie to use. I found four bad wires our of about 40 I was using. It will go in my tool kit everywhere I go from now on. Someone needs to invent a way to discern the difference between an instrument and a speaker cable, however. Especially if you cannot open up the connection to look at the wires. This is not a compaint about the unit, though. Just an observation. Great price, great unit.
