Good product, but beware of the compression ring - Reviews Planet Waves Classic Instrument Cable

Value For Money : Excellent
I bought 2 pairs of these cables to replace the Yellow 3m Cables after trying the Planet Waves of a friend and myself realized that I puffed my YC signal in addition to isolating medium noise. : (

The plugs are nickel and a tip is bent in two.
These shielded cables are very durable and does not distort the signal.

A few years ago that I used now.
I have used in several configurations (guitar and amp, guitar + amp + multi effects, guitar multi-effects + + PA) and I've never noticed any loss of sound or even parasites (provided you have a guitar including electronics cavity is properly wired, otherwise it is better to provide a noise gates and then change or rewire the guitar).

There is still a detail that makes me lower the note.
It's about the compression ring, which is at the top of the page near the insulation is in the form of strips (see photo). It greatly strengthens hold the jack in the sockets (guitar, amp, multi-fx, mixer ...) which is both an advantage and a disadvantage, because all the plugs do not react the Similarly with the enhanced attachment system.

I do have a problem taking my guitar (Ltd EC1000) which is equipped with active pickups. When pressed, the plug is blocked so well that I am forced to frequently check that taking the guitar will not unscrew ...
Fortunately this does not affect the sound or even isolating the connection but it's not very practical ... : /
Ago on this guitar that I encountered this problem yet. On other guitars and equipment no worries, except for a force large enough to pull the plugs (Hum. ..).

After returning to the store and have retried Planet Waves buddy, I realized that there was compression rings of different types and thicknesses depending on the range of lanyards.

To conclude, I would say that given my use (assembly and disassembly of my material on each repetition) I will not go that choice.
I recognize that the quality / price is right, that's why I'm willing to stay loyal to the brand, but taking a more suitable model leads to my use.

I recommend these GTC-RA10 for studio use and possibly live.
But especially for devices whose connections are not disconnected automatically after each use. Because I am afraid that the effort required to remove the jacks may damage the equipment taken over the long term if done too often.
