Good and flexible cable for a handy user
12.03.2017
The signal wire of the cable is double insulated, the innermost insulator layer around it seems to be low-loss and non-hygroscopic polyethylene plastic. The second insulator layer inside is some black and tough plastic, maybe PE-HD. Minor water or beer spills on the jacks are not necessarily going to permanently ruin the high-frequency characteristics of this cable. The double insulation of the inner signal wire also makes this cable quite tolerant for mechanical stress, being stepped on or even rolled over with a trolley every once in a while.

The grounded screen mesh or outer conductor sheath around the signal wire is rather dense, so the cable is quite resistant to electrical noise and pretty well suited to long cable lengths. The outermost rubber layer on the top of all that is quite thick, which means it is probably quite strong mechanically, even if the entire cable outer thickness is quite small.

The user could make this good cable even better by adding a droplet of superglue inside the jack, on the cable crimp which is supposed to grab the outer lining of the cable. After gluing, the cable can tolerate rough use better even if you unplug the jack by pulling on the cable and not the jack itself.

The metal cover of the jack tends to unscrew easily during use, a small droplet of threadlock or wood glue will take care of that. Because you can really open the jack cover, this cable can be repaired very easily if it gets damaged during use, unlike those cables which have molded jacks and are unrepairable.

This is basically the same cable as the 3-meter sssnake IPP1030, just longer. A good cable for the price.

Review from total beginner: Seems to do the job very well
Flourman, 03.06.2021
Just to be clear - I am a total novice and I with that device I am setting my first steps with playing electric guitar, so I have not much overview/comparison with other products.
Rubber casting seems to be durable - still hard to judge after 1,5 month of usage. Cable is flexible and long enough.

best bang for your buck
agomes, 26.11.2020
You would think that it's impossible to get a cable wrong, but usually you get what you pay for.
In this case, you get the best bang for your buck. Nice quality cable with metal ends and that spring thingy that makes it way more durable, instead of full plastic like it's usually done at this price point.

I use this cable everewhere: at home, on the repetitions, in the concerts. This cable is long enouth, with protection from the break at the ends, step on strong. But using he intertwine spontaneously. This is annoying. Generally suitable product.

Good quality / price ratio
Vascossf, 11.02.2021
I don't know how long it will last, but for now good finish, good quality, and a surreal price for a 6m cable.

cheap but reliable
nicocolas, 19.08.2019
I've been using this guitar cable for a couple years now , folding it countless times and occasionally stepping on it and it is still in really good condition, no parasite sounds coming from it when plugged in so all in all really satisfied for such a low priced item.

Good to use, easy to fix
Mark, , 07.11.2019
I bought this cable because my old cable broke and I needed a replacement.

It does the job and it holds up well.

Unfortunately I accidentally stepped on the cable, ripping the jack off.
Luckily with a bit of soldering it was fixed in no time.

I recommend this cable for it's price and use, but beware that it may break.

Nothing to complain, very good for its price.
Noise/hum level is very low, compared to other cheap cables.
Very good cable on a budget.

A fine instrument cable
organ blender, 23.12.2020
Budget friendly 1/4" instrument cable, good length and the spring coil wrap prevents undesirable stress around the connector, protecting a common fault point. Recommended for daily use.

Simple and Useful
GarryMc, 27.08.2019
The extra length of this cable is the perfect amount for comfortable usage. The fact it is 3 metres means it is a convenient size for any indoor room, or small stage as long as you are not straying too far from your amp equipment. I never end up restrained by the length of the cable nor am I tripping over it for being excessively long.
Great quality cable, great length, great price.
Would reccomend.

Okay for the price
Baggles and Butch, 16.04.2021
I bought this as a spare lead to have and within a couple of uses in my sitting room it had given up the ghost and broken. I can't say it was unexpected for the price - if it was cheaper it would be free!
I recommend spending an extra few euro to buy a Fender lead or something of the sort. Buy cheap buy twice and in this case probably even more.

Good quality cable
cdbdb, 27.06.2021
So far the cable has stood up to all the work I have thrown at it and has delivered a good sound with no noticeable loss or distortion of signal. Definitely recommended as an affordable cable option.

Cheap but fail quickly
Extigy, 16.03.2020
Bought three of those a year ago, worked fine in the beginning. After ~8 months the first one didn't work properly anymore; I had to turn the cable jack around to find a sweet spot where it would still work, but after a minute of playing it naturally rotates a bit, so the cable became basically unplayable. The second cable started showing the same behaviour a few months later. I know they are cheap cables but I at least expected them to last a few years, so the quality isn't good enough, even for its low price.

Feeling safe
Rihards, 28.07.2020
Same as with other sssnake cables, I feel safe using these and I feel safe that I will be able to fix the cable easily, because the jack can be unscrewed and re-soldered if necessary.
So far I haven't had any sssnake cable break to require fixing though.
It's a good one.

sssnake IPP1060
Stone, John Stone, 06.03.2020
I can see why they named it the sssnake, it's the most flexible cord I've ever owned. Overall It's a good deal for the price, good quality build with zero noise.
You won't be disappointed.

Great value very long lead
13.03.2017
These leads are great for snaking their way around the stage when hooking up multiple pedal boards.

I wouldn't necessarily recommend these cables for plugging direct into guitars (as I prefer an angled jack and the spring coil surrounding the jack doesn't seem to like being pulled very hard) they have proved themselves invaluable for hooking up my effect pedal board into the effects loop of my amp. The additional length of a 6m cable means that even if your board is located some distance from your amp you can still make the reach.

I've had no issues at all in terms of audio quality and the only real criticism I would make of the lead again relates to the spring coil type sleeve at the jack connection which you need to be careful of stretching and pulling when disconnecting the lead. Otherwise a great value lead.

Does what it says on the tin!
Padicus, 07.09.2020
It's not the most solid cable I've seen, but it does the job for a really good price. Wouldn't recommend for heavy gigging, otherwise it's fine.

Cable for bedroom rock star
Lars.Olsen, 10.03.2019
This cable is cheap and readily available and is not too bad for its price!

If you're buying this cable, there is a big chance that you own at least one pedal that has a buffer built in (think Boss pedals) - You don't need to worry about tone loss (synonymous with cheap cables) since your pedals buffer will take care of it. I have never complained about the sound, it sounds just fine.

The thing I do not like is they have no protection from accidentally stepping on them. If you're plugged in and step up the cable, there is a big chance the connection will fail. One last con is many believe cheap cables do not provide good ground connection - Some noise (like buzzing and humming) is to be expected with this cable.

I will not recommend this to the gigging guitarist, but good for practicing.

Flexible+Durable = Great Value
20.03.2017
I agree with some of the other reviews, it's a great cable. It's long enough to reach across the other side of the stage and plug into an amp or whatever it is you need it for. It's flexible, and the inner components seem to be decently protected from minor water, beer, etc spills. So far the cable has served me well, both in the practice room and at open mic nights.

My only complaint is that it seems that the metal jack comes unscrewed pretty easily - like others have said. Also be careful when unplugging, pull on the jack and not the cable itself as the connection seems to be a bit weak.


Overall and for the price, it's a good cable that can take an occasional beating, provide a good sound quality and it just does what you need it to do.

Works as designed
Gary H, 03.05.2020
Never a problem with the signal, just if used regularly requires frequent tightening of the jack screw compared to cables which have a locked sleeve but that's a very minor issue!
