Planet Waves Planet Waves, part of D'Addario, offers premium instrument cables that are the first in their new line of cable products. I received a fifteen foot cable with gold-plated plugs that use eight unique compression springs to ensure a good connection every time with the mating jack. The plugs are double-molded with large strains relief that look like they could tow my pick up truck. Another cool feature are the changeable color-coded O-rings for easily indentifying many different similar looking cables going to equipment.

The cable wire itself is extra heavy duty with a tough polymer outer jacket and a copper-braided shield with 95% shielding coverage. Shielding is increased to 100% with another double-sided metalized polyester foil inner shield. The inner conductors are a twisted-pair of stranded copper wires covered in foamed polyethylene for lower loss and capacitance making for less loss of high frequencies of your guitar or keyboard. There is a second, outer insulation made from PVC that eliminates handling noise. The plugs are soldered, covered with internal copper shield tubes and then over-molded with rigid PVC that encapsulates the solder joints.
