I was really hesitant to spend so much on a cable but OH MY GOODNESS. It sounds like I got a new guitar. I have a line 6 amp. Small Clone Boss Metal Distortion and a digital delay pedal. I have only tried it with my Ibanez which I got on sale at a pawn shop for forty . I still have lower quality patch cables as well as the cable that runs from my last pedal to my amp. The only cable I changed was the one going from my guitar into my amp. Before my tone was horrible. Was thinking about getting a new guitar just for that. I wasn't expecting such a drastic improvement. I don't know how much better tone would me for a medium range priced cable like fender, but the ones I had were the cheapest I could get. I was pretty broke at the time. I've only had it for a few days so I can affirm their longevity. If these cables do indeed last years. I would say these are cheaper in the long run. The cables I usually get only last less than a year and at around 10-12 . If this one last 3 years. It would be less money with superior sound quality. I'm so happy I bought this cable. Only high end cables for me for now on!

Monster was my cable of choice until they changed the warranty to where you must mail it to monster at your cost to get a replacement. You used to be able to exchange it with any monster dealer. This to me is a pain and for that reason I no longer use monster . Live wire and mogami still honor the warranty exchange with any authorized dealer as of 6 25 16. If that changes I won't buy theirs either. Most people don't know this so while it's a decent cable if you have to replace it just know that is what your dealing with.

      Comments about Monster Cable Classic 1/4 Inch Straight to Straight Instrument Cable:

      I predomitably play 5-string Fender basses and have used monster cables for the last 15-20 years and have not experienced any problems at all. I only had one 20 foot cable and wanted a couple more and really like them. The new ones are not quite as thick as my older ones but are more flexible. The plug ends are solidly fastened and I expect these to last as long as the old patch cords and speaker cables have. You can buy cheaper cables but I don't think you can buy better or more durable ones. The sound is clear and strong with no added noise.

            Comments about Monster Cable Classic 1/4 Inch Straight to Straight Instrument Cable:

            I got this new and improved Monster classic cable as a replacement for the old poorly performing and designed Monster Pro Link cable. I was disappointed by the old "poor design" with the all plastic input casing. These all metal input casing, new classic cables are very strong, good sounding, and do not tangle up like the old Pro Link design. These are robust and the inputs fit well into the guitar jack. The old design seem to have been thin and never quite stayed in. These new ones sound good, a bit bright but very clear and transparent. A definite improvement in tone. My faith in Monster cables has been restored after having been disappointed by the old design. Highly recommended.

                I have A/Bd this cable with a standard "ordinary" cable, and I found the difference to be striking. The monster was clearer, warmer, and I could hear detail that I could not with my other cable.

                Mind you, I have a fairly discriminating ear. But, in my opinion, this cable is well worth its price.

                  If they go out for any reason, you get a new cable. I have replaced my original cable twice already. Not that they are unreliable, that's twice over 30 years !

                            This is now among my favorite cables to use as an instrument cable. The cable itself is solid. That is, the quality appeals to me from the look and feel of it to peace of mind that it's going to last awhile. The end caps don't come unscrewed on their own, or haven't so far and I doubt they will. I'm especially happy with how much I paid for it on a Black Friday - Type special considering the every day cost, but if I HAD to have a cable and nothing was exactly "On Sale" or something, this would be a definite "Quick pic - gotta go" type thing and I think I could pretty much rest assured I would be holding a reliable cable, so you probably could too.

                              I have never had one problem with monster instrument cables. A very well made and functional product.

                                    I've been using Monster Cables for decades and have never had one fail. These shorter cables are great for home use where long lengths are necessary. Highly recommended!

                                          My new studio monitor speakers sounded mediocre with my previous cables. My colleague recommended "monster cables". They completely upgraded the sound. Seriously!
                                          I could turn them all the way up before, and they weren't even that loud (or clear). With these cables, the speakers are too loud at less than 1/4 the volume, and I can hear everything clearly.

                                          Died at the third gig! This is the worst product I have bought made by Monster! Have used the gold cables for years with no issues. This is not Monster Quality. Also, I am not rough on cables
