Sturdy, but needs to be resoldered every once in a while
DroidXXVII 20.04.2020
This cable is quite sturdy, i never had major issues with it. The sleeve of the jack sometimes comes loose, but that's easily addressed if you put a bit of glue (not cyanoacrylate superglue or or anything similar) onto the threads to prevent it from coming loose.

After several years of using it on a daily basis, i had to resolder the cable to make sure it does not lose contact with the jack. I put a ziptie to fix the cable to the jack, and then glued the jack sleeve in. Should it break again, it's easy to make repairs because it's not permanently glued in.

Cable is long enough.
No unwanted noise from the cable.
Jacks are tough enough for personal use.
Very inexpensive.

Jacks might not be strong enough for heavy use.
Jack sleeves come loose every now and then.
Solder breaks every once in a while which may need resoldering.

Will i buy one again? Sure!


Simple cable for audio equipment
Anonymous 30.03.2016
A 3 meter long cable. It has one straight jack and one angled jack. The straight jack is full-metal and looks like high quality. The angled jack is half metal half plastic, which does not seem to be high quality, but, I have to admit, it is durable.

I used it as a guitar cable. It had to take some abuse, because I step on it accidentally sometimes. After approximately 4 years of use, the outer conductor at the angled end gave away and had to be repaired. It is no big deal, because both jacks are easily dismountable, which makes it easy to be repaired.

The angled jack is extremely comfortable to be used with certain guitar body shapes. I have tried it with esp ax, epiphone sg and jackson warrior guitars. The angled jack allows to prevent constant bending of the cable at the jack, which happens when the straight jack is used on mentioned models.

The capacitance of the cable is a little more than 330 pf. This is confirmed by measurements with impedance analyzer. For this type of cables it is usual to have 110 pf per meter.

Good choice for domestic and hobbyist musicians.

The straight end malfunctioned after like 5 days of normal use. The shield wire suddenly begins to touch the tip. I've cut it and made the connection myself soldering iron.


Realistically priced and do the job nicely
Irishman 13.04.2020
I have bought many of these guitar leads from Thomann and couldn't be happier with them. I use them all the time when practising at home, which is a lot. Usually with guitars but also with my keyboard and there's no noise, hissing sounds, etc.

Pros: They definitely do the job they're intended for, and so much so I have ordered them multiple of times and ever one has worked perfectly.

Cons: Not a lot of negatives to add except maybe They're not as strong as the more expensive ones but if you take care of them, tidy them away after use, etc they'll last years.

I have no problem recommending these whatsoever. For their price, you can't go wrong.
