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.

    Been using a year or more now

    By matt dorantes

    from united states

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-AG 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.

        These will not stay seated in any of my guitars as the metal input part is too short! They do not reach the clip portion that keeps the plug in place. Had to return.

        Great product for protecting your amp speaker from the damaging POP. I only wish that the switch was a toggle vs momentary. Having to continually hold dow the button during the change is a bit of a pain but not enough to avoid buy this product.

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

            The picture shown when you open the ad for this cable is the OLD circuit breaker cable. A newer one has replaced it. You can see that in the last of the additional photos. The newer one, the breaker switch DOES NOT HOLD as does with the original cable. To me, that, to a degree, defeats the purpose. Also, I didn;t like the fact that what I thought I had ordered, the original circuit breaker image shown in the above, was swapped out with the LESSER, newer cable. As well, they look totally different. I normally like Planet Waves, bute every now and then, they do something like this.

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

              It provides a very quiet connection and disconnection. Most of the time there is no noise at all but sometimes a very faint and very brief static noise. Another reviewer mentioned that the cable is stiff. It is stiffer than all of my other cables, but it coils up nicely and lies flat on the floor. So that's not a problem, perhaps unexpected though.

                                  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.

                                  This cable is mostly well constructed and looks as though it would last quite a while, but the actual quality varies. I noticed increased clarity in my guitar signal, however, it also boosted midrange frequencies almost to overpowering the sound. The circuit breaker button is oddly shaped and small, and there is faint but noticable scratchy static when it is pressed to disengage the signal. If your guitar's volume is not all the way down, there is a slight but not sharp popping, as well, when the signal is engaged.

                                  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.

                                  This thing is great, i have had it for nearly a year now and had no problems. The cool button is a great idea and is proven priceless when onstage. It allows you to plug in without any nasty pops, etc. The cable is fine, nothing wrong with it. The only bad point is that after a couple of months of a lot of use, the gold starts to fade a bit and come off. Overall great product, expensive but worth the money. I would recommend this to any live performer or even a recording junkie.

                                  Ive been using the planet waves circuit breaker cable for awhile now when playing with my band Terminal Fate. The first one i bought broke in about 6 months, it's the ten foot model. Sure they replaced it, after i payed for shipping, and had to go buy a different cable for a show coming up the next day. The ends are bulky and dont fit right into some jacks. as i said before they break easily. They sound good for awhile but now i have one that picks up ALOT of hum. I wouldnt recommend it to anyone. Liverwire cables are cheaper and sound just as good when playing live. the only reason im still using this is because Its the free replacement and i leave it at home for practice only. It also slips out of any jack very easily. It constantly slips out of my wah pedal and was a big problem during a gig i had once.

                                  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.
