“Love Them, But Make A Note About The Length. ”

Ive been using these cables for approximately 4 months now and they’ve not let me down. They are low profile, plug nice, and produce no static whatsoever. One thing to notice is the cable itself is not 6 long. From plug to plug, its long. For me, this isnt an issue since I want what as close together and tight as possible, but if youre expecting a 6 long cable in addition to additional duration the inputs themselves I could see why you might be let down. Will be buying more of them when I should stock up again!

“I’d Suggest These Cables Anyone Developing A Pedalboard For Your First …”

Obviously these connectors are cheap. Their craftsmanship seems a little cheap, but they really do what they say… They link the pedals. I havent used the patch wires in anything other than a practice setting so I cannot attest to the durability/longevity. I have not noticed any obvious tone loss using these wires in my loop, nothing that I cant live without anyways.I would recommend these cables anybody building a pedalboard for the very first time. They are cost effective, and they get the business done. Obviously you could spend more and get higher quality products, but for a beginner on a tight budget these patch cables are spot on.

“Slim Form Factor – Pack Of 6! ”

This is a 6 pack of patch cables (though it doesnt show that the count in the description). They work good for patching together effects pedals on a pedal board. The flat form factor of the cable heads take up less space in your board, helping you to match even more pedals if you please. Since the horizontal heads are a little wider than the customary patch cables, I have seen some people have issues with pedals which have jacks close to one another or into other inputs (like a power jack, etc.). Just make sure the pedals youll be using these with have sufficient clearance (approximately 1/8) for the cables before buying this bunch.

“How Could You Not Like It”

I have had these route wires for 2 months now. I attached them to four pedals onto a pedaltrain nano. There were just two things that really struck me.1. Everything about them is miniature. The cable is thin. The flat circular pad in back of this plug is possibly a 1/2 inch radius. The actual metallic bit for the socket appeared small, though it functioned perfectly.2. They could turn invisible. No, not literally, for all you techies. It is dim enough to permanently lose your focus. If you plug it into a pedalboard (Im assuming thats why you need one), it will not steal your attention from, I dont know, maybe your shiny, new MXR.And my sole complaint is… Uh, wait, pt here’s no fathomable approach to whine about this item! Quit searching for a better spot cable for your pedalboard. You’ve reached the end of the line.
