Pro-grade instrument cable connects your guitar or other instrument to an amplifier or mixing console with a 1/4 inch TS port

Top Positive Review

More expensive cables often sound better, but the returns diminish rapidly after a certain point. A $60 Mogami guitar cable is audibly better than a cheap Fender cable and is worth the money for studio use. But is a $150 Lava cable better than the Mogami? Not enough to justify the $ in my opinion.

But more expensive is not always better. Here we have an example of a $15 cable set being preferable to a $40 set.

I recently bought the Korg Minilogue XD synth and I needed 10′ instrument cables to connect with my interface. I ordered some Roland Black cables along with the synth, but they ended up being back-ordered. Knowing I’d eventually need more cables anyway I bought this much cheaper set to “tide me over” until I got the Rolands, which I assumed would be better quality, at least in terms of durability and possibly sound too.

I was wrong. After a few weeks using these cables the Rolands finally arrived and I switched them out. Immediately I noticed a change in the character of the sound. The Rolands had a sound I’d describe as dry and cold, not as involving. I switched back and forth a few times and consistently, I just liked the Cable Matters set more. Was it night and day? No. I won’t make a blanket statement that these sound “better,” and I won’t say there’s anything wrong with the Rolands. But the Cable Matters brought out a certain bloom or richness in the Minilogue’s sound that the Roland cables did not, and I not only heard the difference but felt it too. These made me want to play more and the Rolands didn’t.

In terms of durability I’d say the two sets are comparable. Assuming Cable Matters have good QC and this is a representative example, I think they’re a steal at this price.

Top Critical Review

A bit inflexible cable. Wants to kink. Not good for using with your guitar but ok for running lines from effects to amp/mixer, etc. Basically, these are low quality cables that are good for patching only.
UPDATE:
The manufacturer has refunded me (volunteered, I did not ask). That impresses me. Adding a Star. And I would like to clarify; these cables work just fine as long patch cables. My original comments were with regard to using the cable on stage. That’s where it is, in my opinion, a bit too inflexible.
