As usual, Monoprice offers instrument as well as speaker cables at a really good price. The cloth series were something i was very interested in and turned out to be as good as i expected. The right angle on one end helps alot when i use bass or electric guitars that get propped up against my leg during practice and performances. Overall its a good investment and at the price its easy to have multiple cables in the studio, my case, and at home. Would definitely buy more in the future!
Ever since we discovered MONOPRICE, my Rock Band buys ALL of our cables from MONOPRICE... all or our XLR Mic & Rack Component cabling, the DMX cables for our LED stage lighting, ALL of our 1/4" TS & TRS instrument & patch cables, our SpeakOn speaker cables, AND our 12-gauge Power Extension Cords. We could have saved HUNDREDS of dollars if we'd only known sooner rather than later! ANYWAY... I use these BLUE Cloth Series cables anywhere I play, whether in my home studio, the band's studio, or doing a gig. I'm the only one using BLUE cables so it helps prevent my cables from getting mixed-up with anyone else's without having to LABEL or tag them. I use these 10-footers to connect my guitars or bass to my FX processors and I use a longer one (like this one) to connect the FX to the amplifier.
CAUTION: If you have any issues with these cables, PLEASE contact Monoprice's Customer Service Dept. to give them a chance to resolve those issues BEFORE you needlessly or inappropriately give the product a poor rating!
PROS: • Great Price! • Excellent Quality! • Awesome Warranty!
CONS: • Limited Color Selection • Limited Length availability
I'm a pro musician who relies on high quality gear, including good cables. I often make my own cables for specific applications. When I found these cables on Monoprice, I reckoned I could not even buy the parts for a twenty foot cable at this price, so I ordered four. They took about a week to arrive. Packaging was excellent. I did an immediate audio test and the tested cable actually sounded marginally clearer than the ten-foot cable I A/B'd it with.. Build quality felt great, with only one complaint: the heat-shrink tubing surrounding the jack and cable was not completely shrunken on a couple of the cables. For me this was a small matter I fired up my heat gun and shunk the offending sleeves in a few minutes. For some, this could be a deal-breaker, but for me, it kept the meter well within the "max bang per buck" zone. Now I'll see how well they stand up over time. With the company's name emblazoned on the heat-shrink tubing, I'll know whether Monoprice will win my repeat business.
PROS: Max bang per buck!
CONS: Haet shrink tubing was a but loose on a couple cables.
Awesome as an instrument cable! Flexible, doesn't easily tangle. Noiseless, beautiful. Would be nice to see more colors.
PROS: High quality Gold plated ends, love the blue color!
CONS: I had ordered the standard right angle cables in the past. These are a lighter duty cable than the others, they seem to be too small a conductor for speaker wire. Not really a con, but a warning for those that are looking for a heavy duty cable. They are 20 guage, so they are perfectly suited as an instrument cable.
Very nice cables. Appear well made with good quality connectors and heat-shrink reinforcement. Should give good service. Would be nice if there was more than one color choice and if they were a slightly heavier gauge, but an excellent value for the price. May order a few more.
