shame on me (fooled me twice)
I don't know what it is about expensive monster instrument cables -- I lost money on them. I bought 2 top-end high $$ monster prolink instrument cables (guitar) here several years back. They both failed within a year straight away -- after a lot of phone call BS with monster, I sent them back and they did replace them, and I just them kept them unused as spares. I finally opened them after 2 years on the shelf untoched and both had noise galore through my amp. The other guitar player in my band at the time gave me a regular standard low-end cable to replace it and in the same setup it became dead quiet after swapping out the high-end monster. Overpriced, oversold, all gold flash but no reliability. What's the point replacing them again if 4 out of 4 were bad? Bye bye monster.
