I used the custom series with the compression springs for years, but decided to try the custom pro line. I bought this cable and compared it back and forth with my custom series PW cable. There were less "artifacts" in the sound. Seemed like there was extra hiss and distortion in the Custom pro. The Custom Pro also seemed to have more mids present. Overall, I think this is the best cable PW makes and one of the better store bought ones you can get.I have used PW cables for years, but I think there is better out there. After talking to many people and reading many reviews, I think I am going to go with Canare cables. I will compare them to the Custom Pro line, but I have a feeling there will be an improvement, and for a cheaper price as well.

Poor cables add noise

Bought four of these cables a while back for my pedalboard snake.

Bought four of these cables a while back for my pedalboard snake.

-> Wireless Run
-> FX Send
-> FX Return
-> Amp in

Using the planet waves cables, extra noise was introduced into my chain- both static and when clicking on pedals. When I switched out the planet waves cables with some old monster gold cables, the noise disappeared in both instances. The only thing that changed was the planet waves cables to monster cables.

Anyways, I would NOT recommend these cables to anyone- they're noisy, which is inexcusable for any musician, pro or novice.

        In the past I've used Monster cords. This cord is much more durable. I'm still using the original purchase, and would have went through 2-3 monster cords by now. Bought this one as a backup just to be safe. I guess I'm just gun shy after using Monster cords!

          I put them through a lot every week. The last time I bought these was 4 years ago... longer than any other cables have lasted for me. Clubs, fairgrounds, booze, dirt, good intentioned helpers wrapping them too tight, etc. They took all the abuse and lasted longer than I thought they would.

            Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Gold-Plated 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

            This cable causes my amps to transmit an AM radio signal. It gets much worse when an overdrive or fuzz pedal is engaged, but the signal is still there if I plug straight into the amp from the guitar. I am very displeased given the price.

            I bought two of these cables over a year ago and they both still work fine for me.Now I have not tried pulling my amps across the stage with them, played tug-o-war with my buds, or threw them in pile and walked on them but they do get used.So far I have received the same service from these cables as I have from ones costing two and three times as much.I'm happy with them!
