I have a number of these, in different colours, handy to be able to find my leads at the end of the gig. Needed to extend the monitor at one gig, so plugged this in and it didn't work, tried another one, it did, threw it in the bag and forgot about it. Today I tested them on the cable tester and this was shorting and intermittent. Opened up the cable and I know at these prices they are presumably produced by people who are not that skilled and don't care, but it really shows. The insulation was way back so the conductors were touching, the soldering was just a blob on the pins that didn't really hold the 3 strands of cable left in well, and frankly it looked worse than one i saw that was soldered by a drunk guitarist in a hurry at a gig. I will be checking the others and redoing them now.
