    Neutrik connectors are better than the ones that use springs and produce lesser noise.. On the other hand, they are less forgiving to rough use and get damaged easily, in the ends, that is...
    I would advice against ordering from bajaao since these look ordinary and are extremely overpriced...

    I bought these kaps guitar cables of 2m length for 250 each from a local guitar store... I don't know if these are original neutriks they put in it, but the overall quality is really good...

    I am worried about the noise mainly, and the fact that they dont get damaged easily by regular usage(practicing/playing live) and can sustain a little abuse like being stepped on, the connectors dont sustain any rough use the way i use my cables, it is just that the people walking around when i'm playing tend to step on my cable, annoys the hell out of me.

    Well since no one commented about any of those cables, and Bajaao does not feel it necessary to give out any details for both the no brand cables like capacitance values etc and a google search about spectra cables did not yield anything, pretty shady for a company they claim to be 50 years old and revered by audio professionals. The samson cable did not have good reviews whereas the Dimarzio cable had amazing reviews everywhere, and Steve Vai uses the same cable with a modified connector, Joe Satriani, John Petrucci etc also use dimarzio cables so i went ahead and ordered this one.

    The link doesn't work for me.... i have been using Spectra cables with Neutrik plugs for more than 2 years with out any issues... And any cable should not be roughly handled in my opinion...Connectors are also important and not just the cables...

    What 5 feet? The cable i ordered is 15 feet.

    EDIT: I just noticed they have removed the product i ordered from the website, ie the 15ft version the 10ft one is still there. I dont know why.

    Yeah i currently have a 10 feet cable and feel it is a bit short as i move about a lot while playing so i went for 15 feet, The tone loss is not that significant at 15 feet, at around 20-25 feet it is more evident.

    Well new update, my fears have come true, the dimarzio cable is not available :( they called me yesterday and i ordered the spectra cable with neutrik connectors instead.

    Also arya where do you buy the monster cable from? and how much does it cost?
