All the negative reviews have come from people who use these as instrument cables and that's what I'm looking for as well but it seems obvious that these are NOTrecommended for instrument cables (the blue cloth ones are!!!). Why hasn't Monoprice spoken up to clear this up??? If these are not instrument cables and they are not speaker cables... What are they???
I've had some fairly expensive guitar cables in the past, but this is actually one of my favorites. The cable itself is good quality. Flexible, moderate thickness. It's actually 3 conductor microphone cable, which doesn't make any difference, but is just interesting. The benefit to me is the connectors have a great design and it's built in a way that is durable, but if there ever is an issue with the connection, it could easily be repaired (by someone comfortable with soldering.) They are good quality plugs, on par with switchcraft, but I think I prefer the design of the Monoprice.
I’ve bought these before and when I first received them I was very impressed. Good quality connectors which you can repair if needed and a nice cable. The cable is very flexible but it’s a tad thick for pedal boards. I have them on my pedal board and I have no noise at all. I’ve had my first ones for at least 5 years with no problems. Monoprice needs to make a 10”. At least I haven’t seen one yet! I would definitely recommend! Tats
