the only reason that i don't give this monster cable a ten is that i know that there are higher quality cables out there for perfect studio recordings, but this is a real musician's cable. If you buy a cheaper cable you will pay for it! though a bit more expensive, monster cables offer a great warrantee and great sound. They come with a storage velcro and color coding rubber bands. If you have ever played a show where there is a bad cable you will know the value of a good cord that you can rely on and these are those cords.

I tried 6 different ones of these cables and they all had the same problem: they did not "lock" into place in the jack (they would just fit loosely). I tried plugging them into 4 different amps, a digital work station, several guitars, and a drum machine, and they had the same problem on each one. I have never had this problem with any other cable I have ever owned (and I've had a lot of cables over the years, from the cheapest ones I could find to top of the line), so I was puzzled at this unexpected glitch. But after finding the problem on six of these (all 6 foot length), I decided to give up on Monster. Musician's Friend was very good about accepting returns for all of them, so I only had minor inconvenience.

COMPLETE JUNK!!!

By Rob Suttner

from Chicago

Comments about Monster Legacy S-100 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

Anybody aspiring to advance in music like rock, metal, blues, jazz...anything that requires a 1/4 cable for any reason please stay away from this product.
What features? It's the most basic cable ever. You could McGyver one in your garage if you had the time.
An absolute disgrace. I cannot agree more with a quote " It lacks the only feature a cable needs...the ability to move electrons from one end to another."

I am a gigging guitarist of 8 years now and have been playing seriously for almost 12. I can understand using this cable in your dorm room in your off-time just coming up with riffs & leads, but even then you would notice its inferiority to any mid-line cable you might use. I played double header gigs on Halloween and had no other cables but this one (thanks to a band deviant), and to say the least this cable made me want to end my music career! (not really, but I was embarrassed).

I measured this cables output with my oscilloscope & it was obvious the signal was attenuated immensely.
It's true what they say-you get what you pay for.

Don't get too hasty. Save up your money and endure the time, then spend your money wisely after reading specs & reviews. It WILL pay off in the end with gigs & recording. You'll spare yourself much unnecessary frustration.

Garbage

Comments about Monster Legacy S-100 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

I've been satisfied with other Monster cables I've bought. The S-100, however, has not been good.
It lacks the only feature that a cable really needs: the ability to move electrons from one end to the other.
I bought two: a straight, and a right-angle. Both of them failed at one of the molded plugs, after just a couple of hours of practicing in my home studio. A friend also bought one, and his died too.
Complete waste of money.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Monster Legacy S-100 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

          Don't buy this. Spend a little more on something else. Don't buy any monster cable for that matter. Here's why: The cable will work for a time, but it WILL color your sound. You will lose the richness and depth of your tone and be flattened out. Even if you treat it well it will fail eventually, causing pops, crackles and silence when you move around. You might think you can just get it replaced under warranty at that point, but you're wrong. Every music shop employee has told me Monster is really stingy with their warrantees: the cable has to not conduct any signal at all for it to be replaced. In other words there is a large gab between a cable you don't want to use and a cable Monster will replace. Word to the wise, steer clear of all Monster products.

          Nice basic cable.
          The gauge of this cable at first seemed a little thin, compared to one I used to have, but that's not a bad thing with this product. Nice rubber coating, does not kink easily.
          I got the 21' cable on sale.

            Overall Monster Instrument Cable is highly recommended due to its great sound, quality construction, and price.
            This basic design cable hides within it...durablity, quality craftmanship, good feel, good materials, good design, and great sound. Monster Cable provides a lifetime warranty on its cables.
            This cable is strong, durable, and sounds good use after use. It does break or damage easily.
            This cable sounds great. It performs well. It is priced well.

              Comments about Monster Legacy S-100 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

              This is a great cable as long as you don't get one that is too long, as you'll probably end up getting tangled like I do when walking around and playing in my bedroom. I definitely recommend it though, as there is no hum or unwanted noise or anything else that might turn you away from this cable.
              Ranges from short to longer than you'd need in a bedroom situation. Other than that it's pretty much like every other straight end cable.
              This cable is built tough and ready for abuse.
              Inexpensive and effective are good words to describe it.

              Comments about Monster Legacy S-100 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

              I have had this cable for 1-2 months. An often overlooked (yet essential) part of any player's tone is held through the cable - you can't play without one & if you need a new one, get this one! I have been extremely impressed with how much crisper and brighter my tone is playing through this cable. Once you play through this you will more than know that it was worth the money. Am now considering upgrading to the even higher quality Monster cable (pending approval from the wife) to see if it will make even more of a difference, but this one really blew me away considering it was A CABLE, something we all just take for granted. Stop wasting time and money on anything else and get this one - THANK YOU MONSTER!!!

              Let's put it this way: If you don't want to buy a $50 six foot cable, this is the next best option. The cable I have is over two years old, and is still going, sound great, I'm much happier than I was with those cheaper cables with the screw caps on the terminals. Every one of those I have had is dead now, bt the monster cable still chugs on.

              I am now a believer in Monster. These cables give me the purest single I've ever experienced. I was very displeased with the price I had to shell out for this cable but after using it, I could see why it costs so much. I plugged my guitar up to my amp and tried out this cable, a planet waves, and an ernie ball. Right away I saw how big the difference was! It was absolutely amazing. Get this cable. You may regret losing so much cash but after using it, you will never have that feeling again.

              Comments about Monster Legacy S-100 1/4" Straight Instrument Cable:

              You really can't beat Monster cables because of the lifetime warranty. Obviously most hobbyist musicians out there probably can't tell the difference sound-wise between a quality cable and a cheaper generic, but even if you can't, the lifetime warranty more than makes up for the price. I have gone through a few of them (hence the 4.5 on quality) and you just walk into any store that sells Monster cables, hand them the broken one, and they hand you a new one, regardless of why it broke. I'll gladly pay double the price for that warranty considering once I buy the cable, I never have to worry about buying a new one for that purpose again.
