These are currently one of my top favorite cables of all time. They sound great, the bass is thick and the treble is clear while the mids are also very present. I had a chance to A/B this to an evidence siren cable and I can tell you the difference between them is almost SO subtle that only an OCD audiophile would have something to complain about.

The coiled part is exactly why I bought it. I've been using these cables for just over 6 years and they're still going! I was fed up with high quality cables that kept tangling up all the time. I'm not saying that these are 100% tangle free however, because they still DO tangle, and I've begun to believe that it's inevitable with cables, period. However, once these tangle, they untangle in a quick second with just a simple yank. Since they're coiled, when they get mixed up they don't get intensely mixed up and just require a simple yank to clear them apart from each other! Awesome! No knots!! Not only that, they also stretch out quite long, I've got 2 and it's all I'll ever need to reach any stage of any size!

These are almost near perfect apart from one little thing. The coils cables themselves are quite heavy. Heavier than the ends. Heavy to the point that if your pedals aren't secured on a board, and you're runnin around on stage or what not, you'll be dragging that pedal along with you as opposed to the coil parts of the cable stretching out first. I'm not too sure if I'm explaining this properly but I think you get the idea. When everything's plugged in and you stretch out from walking, the part of the cable being pulled first are the ends as they're the lightest compared to the body of the coils. This can be a nuisance to some, depending.

Overall it's a great cable, one of the better cables I've been using so far. Sounds great, very sturdy, nearly tangle-free.

nickname009's review (silver bullet cable)

By nickname009, 30/04/2011
* Available in lengths of 12 feet (3.66 meters) and 20 feet (6.1 meters)
* Flexible web-wound outer skin resists tangling
* Durable audiophile-grade materials preserve and elevate sound
* Balanced conductors cancel noise and maintain signal purity
* Polyethylene-potted connector design provides exceptional strain relief
* Precision-machined straight/straight connectors withstand the toughest abuse
* Displays dynamic tone, rich harmonics, and a fierce attack with high frequencies
* Custom-voiced for basses, guitars and keyboards

I sort of stumbled upon this company a few years ago by accident. I remember just walking through a guitar shop and seeing these cables and they looked very plain and yet very sturdy and were quite affordable. Before discovering the silver bullet cables, I've been using planet waves cables. Most of which have crapped out on me or were defective etc. So I decided to try something new and these looked interesting, the outer layer is very slick and shiny, but also very tough, it's almost difficult to step on to them cause if you do you'll slip!!! This has happened to me a few times. I'm not sure if that's really any better than crushing a regular cable or not.. but it does protect the cable. The ends are really secure as well. The big issue with most cables for me of course is the tangling, in which case this silver bullet still ends up doing. Tangles up quite a bit, seems like it's inevitable with cables of all types, doesn't matter what material you use or whatnot.

They sound great of course! To me, every guitar cable brand has a slightly different sound. Whether it's good or not is subjective, but most of the time it's good. But the good tone is definitely there. I didn’t own other cables at the same time so I didn’t do any a/b comparisons but I do remember these sounding quite good overall. For reviewing cables I’m basically reviewing the longevity of them and their sturdiness as opposed to how good they sound since every cable company makes their cables sound different.

Overall it's a decent cable, one notch above a planet waves cable but not the best I've tried in terms of flexibility and the tangling up has always been the biggest beef for players. I’ve since moved on to other cables from the same company, of which I have also reviewed, the more recently popular coil cables.
