Incorporates a lifesaving design feature, however poor build quality lets it down.
15.09.2016
((EDIT): Below is my first review of this product. A day after I published the review, the cable started making hissing noises, making it practically unusable. It get's 3 stars because of the spring, which really impressed me at the time, but didn't make much difference in the end)

The single reason I was initially drawn to this cable was because of the ridiculously cheap price - I could buy 3 of these for the same price as one cable in my local music store. The Sssnake seemed to be getting fairly decent reviews and so I popped it into my basket along with my new Fender Jaguar guitar.

When my package arrived, I was eager to try my new guitar out, and so plugged it straight in with the Sssnake cable (I had broken my old one by pulling it out of the amp forcefully one too many times)

What can I say- the cable did it's job. It sounded just as good as my old fender cable, which I was very pleased about, given the cheap price. However, what really impressed me, and what urged me to write this review seeing as nobody else had written much about it - was the small spring located just above the jack cover (clearly seen in image 2 on the product page)

Before, when I was using my old cable, when I was finished playing, I would yank the the cable out forcefully, holding onto the black bit just above the jack cover. Over time, this caused the connection to come loose and break. With the Sssnake, upon trying to pull it out like before, the spring simply pulled up and sprung back, leaving me both humbled and impressed by such a simple design feature which would now save me countless cables. I proceeded to remove the cable from the amp safely by holding onto the jack cover.

If you are someone who is constantly breaking their cables by inappropriate removal from amp or guitar - this is the cable for you.

If not, hey, its only 2.50, why not give it a go.

Great price, average performance
Kyuuga, 25.07.2018
This cable is the very definition of "okay-ish". The price is very attractive and it's why I purchased one - wanted to see what it was all about.

It lasted me a couple of months before it died out of nowhere and the sound quality was reasonable. Really wasn't expecting much more for such a cheap cable.

If you want a quick-fix for a cable that just died or you want a spare one to bring along to your gigs in case something fails then this certainly can do the trick. However, if you're looking for a long-term, stable piece of gear then this isn't the option for you. It certainly has its place on the market though.

It's a standard cable, nothing special to it .. except for one thing that came in my way. I have an Ibanez SR300 and it has the "thing where u put the jack" a bit inside the body, it's a cool thing, it blends in very well ... the problem is that pulling out that cable is the hardest thing ever, I can barely put my index and thumb on the part that sticks out so using strenght its impossible. Long story short, had to replace it in 3 weeks cause everytime I had to pull from the cable, ruining it.
:(

Could be better.
Theodore85, 13.12.2019
I have used about 5-6 sssnake cables in the past 3 years.
They tend to break and need resoldering on the jack if you are lucky, or cutting down until you find the break if you are unlucky.

I now use other cables as standard, but keep a pair of sssnake cables on the side in case i need an extra as their price allows me to do so.

Cheap built, just for spare
BrownJenkin, 26.09.2019
The cable came as part of a bundle. I decided to give it a try and it worked fine for some days, after it started to buzz and I repaced it. It can be used as an "extrema ratio" cable but surely it's not a everyday cable. Jacks appear to be fine, maybe the wiring is not that good. Anyway for 2 euros it's pretty standard.

Ok quality, good value for money. I wouldn't use it in my best gig or recording, but it's ok for home practicing.

Poor Soldering
Pizarro, 04.04.2019
This lead was fine to begin with, but constant use caused the solder joints connecting the cable to the jack to fail. An easy fix if you have a soldering iron but something to be aware of when you buy.

Wackelkontakt ohne Ende
Kabelmonster, 28.06.2019
Nach kürzester Zeit hatten fast alle Kabel diesen Modells einen bösen Wackelkontakt. Der Preis ist fast unschlagbar, aber auch die Klinkengewinde führen dazu, dass die Klinke öfter mal aufgeschraubt ist. Da lohnt sich das Nachlöten / Mehrinvestition evtl.
Für Homerecording, wo das Kabel sich nie bewegt aber evtl lohnenswert.

Bad Quality
ryo200024, 10.11.2017
It is a very short jack with springs below. The springs are a nice addition but the short jack makes pulling the lead off a strat with a body input hard without grabbing at the springs. The jack and some other parts also unscrews itself loose from time to time and have to be retightened. It is justified by the cheap price, but even then it is better to invest in slightly more expensive higher quality cables.

Bit noisy - but bang for the buck
Vatsal, 17.01.2020
Got 2 of these - one was a bit noisy from day 1, the other one developed some after a couple days of light use. Wouldn't bother with these really.

Okay
Delirious , 30.05.2018
It's a cable that does its job, however, like many of the lower priced cables, I found that they make a lot of noise when connected either to an amplifier or a audio interface, and the connectors get loose often.

A bit flimsey and....low quality
Claesson, 27.04.2019
Its okay but not more. Got two will probably never use them.
But they are not expensive, so value for money is good! But I would never use the cable an I situation where I had to depend on them....so they are now placed in the drawer.....

OK for that price
jmill, 03.11.2019
This was a VERY cheap cable. I didn't expect it to last pretty long and it has made some problems so far already, 1 month in.

But for a starter cable, it's perfect.

Not a great lead
Dave R., 08.12.2014
This is a cheap low quality lead. I don't recommend you to use it on your instrument for a gig. The jack plugs are basic and the lead itself is flimsy.
Bad news: I'm afraid to say, this lead let me down at a gig shortly after I bought it.
My intention was to use this lead in a static situation. I used it to send signal from my bass combo amp to the PA desk but it failed. Luckily, I had a second one in the bottom of my gig bag as a spare lead.
One more small gripe: I like to roll my leads in a circle. This lead has a memory so there's a little kink in the lead every 30cm. Not ideal but I've learned to roll it flat now and I use a velcro cable tie to keep it from unraveling.
Conclusion: You'd be better off getting something a little more up market.

Jack keeps unscrewing
20.09.2016
The jack keeps unscrewing all the time and it's a pain to get it out of a strat. I'm always scared I'm going to rip it aparent when doing that. Sometimes it gets temperamental in certain positions and you lose the signal.

But it does get the signal across from guitar to wherever as long as you're not moving around too much.

A simple cable
13.03.2016
When i bought my first guitar i didn't knew what cable to buy so i bought this one, as it was one of the most sold ones.

Even though it has a "cheap" look and feel, this cable works great. No static problems, the sound is great.

The only problem i've found is that the screw part isn't that good and sometimes it separates when you are handling it, so get it tight.

All in all, this is a very good product if you have a tight budget!

Good enough

A cables a cable but i have noticed that on some cables the inner wires have no insulators making the sound scratchy when you move the wire slightly.

Cuts highs on the guitar, and it is non very durable. OK for rehearsals or as backup, though.

Svett, 08.07.2019
It's an okay cable , but for stage perfomance you need something more consistant and reliable . It came with a flaw , the cold and hot wires made contact and therefore made noise, I'm trying to get a refund
