I bought this as a general purpose cable to use between my guitar, effects and amp. It seems to work with no obvious hum or interference problems. The cable is slightly thinner and less flexible than I expected, so I will probably use it mostly between amp and pedals, where its flexibility is less of an issue. The Amphenol connectors are made of metal and seem of good quality. Like the cable, they're slightly thinner than I expected (thinner than similar Neutrik connectors), with fairly basic (but adequate) strain relief. The covers unscrew easily, revealing good quality soldering. If there is any problem in the future, I imagine it will be easy to repair or replace the cable. Given the price, I'm pleased and would recommend this cable for fixed installations.
