Ordinary plug/jack connections can become unstable, resulting in annoying static and signal loss. Plus, many cables offer little protection at the soldering points, causing premature failure. Planet Waves cables have special compression springs that allow the plug to positively lock into the jack, elimination any annoying static. The plugs also have a flexible polymer overmolded at the soldering point, and offer maximum protection and supreme strain relief.
I've always been happy with all the PlanetWaves products - I bought two different tuners for my bass and they are outstanding! This is an inexpensive, quality instrument cable. It has a soft rubber insulation. It is supposed to be double shielded. It sounds good. It does have a tendency to get knotted up because the insulation is not slick. You might ArmorAll the cable to stop this or just wrap a velcro tie around the part of the coil of cable that will not be used. It says it is guaranteed for life ..
This cable bends with ease and feels like it will never break. It doesn't have any stiffness to it, and it has substantial weight. Even though a cable came with my guitar and also with my amp, I am very glad that I bought this cable.
