Planet Waves Jack/jack : ericthegreat's user review
« high quality cables »
I've been using Planet Waves Jack/Jack instrument cables for about seven or eight years. I have a number of them and they are a mainstay in my guitar set up. I have found these cables to be beyond reliable. I have never had one break, and the gold tips ensure a good sound and solid connection. While they are a bit expensive for a cable, it is well worth it because they will last you forever (or at least a pretty long time). I also use these for keyboards and bass guitars, and pretty much anything that I need a mono instrument cable for. I have used them both in the recording studio and live on stage. These are perfect for both situations as they are both high quality and will send your signal cleanly, but are also sturdy and can take a beating if you need to bring them on the road. These cables are built extremely well, with solid casing on the ends to ensure that the insides are safe and secure. It is well made all around and I would have a hard time breaking this as the important parts of the cable are pretty well hidden underneath the protective layer. Planet Waves also ensures these cables for life and will replace yours if it breaks. I have never had one of these break so I have never tried to get one replaced though. I would compare these cables to that made by Monster. Both are made at an extremely high quality and are similar in price. Monster also will guarantee their cables for life. I can't really say if these are better than Monster cables as I think they are both elite and extremely high quality. I just happened to use Planet Waves cables first. These cables have served me well and I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of some instrument cables.
