Top Positive Review

I originally bought two 3-pack cables, but then I saw all the sizing reviews and changed it to one 3-pack. I??m going to start building my own guitar pedals so I needed these short cables for testing purposes. I wanted to make sure that they fit in the 1/4?? jack correctly though. I didn??t modify the jacks or cables at all. I took 4 pictures of the 3 cables straight out of the packaging. You can be the judge. As far as the sound quality is concerned, I haven??t tested them. If they are made with oxygen free copper, they??ll most likely sound wonderful. Anyway, I hope this review helps the sizing debacle.

Top Critical Review

A number of other reviews state that these cables keep popping out of pedals. The reason is that these plugs are not sized right for standard 1/4″ mono plugs to the point where the contact does not clip into the tip properly. (See the attached photos. Black cable is Planet Waves, while the other is your average 1/4″ patch cable jack.) The molding around the plugs prevents them from pushing in far enough to clip properly. While a cable tester registers these as contacting properly, I don’t like the idea of them not clipping into the tip and eventually pushing back the contact to the point where the jack needs to be replaced. They will also pop out just like other users have experienced. Therefore I won’t be using these. It’s too late to return them so unfortunately I’ve wasted my money. Hopefully you read this and don’t make the same mistake.

Customer Questions & Answers

good for bass?
Answer:

I’m sure they’d work fine for Bass pedals. They’re very short runs so ideal for any high-z, unbalanced signal. The shorter the run the better when dealing with unbalanced cables especially. The shielding of these unbalanced cables seems well built too and they are of decent gauge. Don’t see why they wouldn’t work gr??

I purchased these in the past and the description included a lifetime warranty. I no longer see this in the product description… no more warranty?
Answer:

These are cheap enough that I never worried about any warranty. IF they ever go bad, I have plenty of spares.

OTOH, my entire board is wired with these now, and it sounds better (and quieter) than before, while the cables cost LESS than what just TWO of the “premium” cables I used before set me back.

I’m using six of??

What’s the capacitance level of these patch cables? Please, only answer if you know.
Answer: 28 pF

Can these cables be used for the beatbuddy foot switch?
Answer:

Dear customer, from the pictures that I saw online of the Beatbuddy foot switch. It Looks like it uses a quarter inch jack which is the size that I??m selling. Just please make sure it is the proper length instrument cable that you were looking for. All of those footpedals when it comes to connecting to one anoth??
