PROS: Work great, great price. As long as you know what you need, they're perfect.
These cables all had major noise issues, worse than the cheap cables that typically come with a guitar or microphone. Touching the ends of any of these cables is disastrous, resulting in very loud crunching and popping sounds that can SERIOUSLY damage your equipment.
Sorry, Monoprice, but I have spent hundreds of dollars over the years on your equipment and NEVER had to ask for a RMA on any of your products, but for these, I had to. Spend your money on something better like a Planet Waves (just not Monster Cable because they are evil and overcharge like mad) or just make your own darn cables.
PROS: High Quality, Durable, Gold Ends, Sounds Great, limits noise and interference.
CONS: Microphonic in certain situations, other than that, none that I can know of.
PROS: Cheap. Seriously, as in "you're not going to find a cheaper guitar patch cable ANYWHERE" I ordered a bunch of these to wire up my studio. Not only was the price unbeatable, the cables themselves are of a higher quality than I've ever bought from any retail chain. Ask Guitar Center to price match these and watch their expression!
CONS: I should have ordered more.
All make this cable great for stages, traveling gigs, and outdoor venues were cables will normaly get beat up.
CONS: Not really A Con But A Warning - ** Not A Instrument Cable **
PROS: *Fantastic construction
*Very durable ends with springs wrapped around where the cable meets the end plug. This prevents damage very well, and I wish I had some guitar cables that had this feature
*Ends are really solid, don't think there's any chance of bending or breaking them
CONS: *This is NOT an instrument cable! I foolishly didn't read the other reviews before purchasing. These cables make a TON of noise if you move them around while they're plugged in to a guitar or bass amp. If you're using any kind of overdrive/distortion, the popping/crackling sound is intolerable
*That being said, it's on me that I didn't thoroughly read through the item description / reviews.
PROS: The cable is comprised of 16 AWG wire. It also has spring type strain reliefs, and gold plated phone jacks. Unbelievably cheap at $6.21.00,
CONS: I bought this cable along with a 6 FT on November 23, 2012. The cables never left the rehearsal studio, and I took very good care of them. I usually brought extra cables to rehearsal, but didn't last Tuesday. I use a pedalboard, and need two cables to use effects. The 15' cable failed, and it ruined my night because I had to bypass my effects.
