  • your thoughts on monster cables

    I'm thinking of optimizing my rig (i.e high quality speaker cable, high quality guitar cable) are monster cables worth the scratch? any other alternatives? Thicker gauges, plating material, etc?

    WAAAASTE of money. If you wanna buy cables, I HIGHLY recommend planet waves cables. Otherwise, every one on here is gonna tell you to make your own.

      Don't give a dollar to that company, seriously. There are lots of alternatives. George L cables are good.

        Monster is a company with really despicable business practices that makes money by duping uneducated consumers into thinking they need to spend 20 times more than necessary on basic cables to hook up the gear they buy at Best Buy.

        They deserve nothing but scorn for the way they bully small businesses and exploit hapless consumers. They're a really scummy company.

          Don't say the word "Monster" too loud.

          They'll sue you.

            I have old ones I still replace when they break but I do not buy anything new from them.

            However there is some merit to having "quality" cables. I get mine custom made but in a pinch I'll pick up something from Planet Waves over // ONSTER.

              Not worth it. I had monsters break in a week and I've have cheapo cables last years.

                ****************ty, unreliable and overpriced cables. However they come with a lifetime warranty.

                Those are my thoughts.

                  You guys might laugh but you wanna know the best cable that I have ever owned? Radio Shack gold cable. Had this thing for about 10 years..Never any problems. I think I paid around $16 for 12ft.

                      Absolutely this, but the shipping makes my taint cramp However, it does even out pricewise with the retailer alternatives, and the quality is better.

                        While there are the value/technical issues being describe, this is actually why I make it policy NOT to purchase Monster Cable products.

                        It is an attempt to abuse IP law. While it isn't uncommon for trademark holders to send warning shots over the bows of others in the market, "Monster" st, at best suggestive, and much more probably descriptive and the extent to which they do this (especially the breadth across markets) is simply egregious.
                        It's a very good thing for them I'm not on the bench - sanctions would be a flyin

                          I found an unopened 21 footer two days ago at home. I think THAT is awesome. I doubt id buy more though.

                            The rock model darkens your tone. They are the devil (very lawyer happy).

                            I used them.

                            Why? Because they replace your cable if it breaks.

                            I know there are better cables out there, but I play standard tuned through middy amps. I use the fat dark tone they give me as part of my EQ.

                            I broke my jazz cable. Stepped on it. RMA on Monster website. Told them I stepped on it. Sent it back. Brand new one a few weeks later. If they have the same model in guitar shops, you can walk straight in and do the same thing.
