Hands On Review: Planet Waves American Stage Cables

Think that the guitar cables you use don’t affect your sound? Think again! There can be significant interaction between your guitar’s passive electronics (pickups, volume and tone controls) and the cable you use to connect to your amp or effects. With a less-than-stellar cable, you may lose high end, you might lose signal, or you might pick up airborne hum and noise.

But those problems are a thing of the past with the Planet Waves American Stage series cables. These cables, available in 10-, 15-, 20-, and 30-foot lengths, are made from the finest materials — including custom-designed “GeoTip” Neutrik 1/4″ plugs for better conductivity and a more positive connection — to maximize signal flow and minimize signal degradation.

I’ve been using an American Stage cable in my rig for some time now, and I find that it provides an excellent hi-fi rendition of my guitar signal. The cable is solid and durable, and I’ve had zero problems with it, even with hard use. Don’t use any old guitar cable that’s just lying around. An American Stage cable will give you excellent tone transfer and years of use — and that’s what it’s all about.
