I just bought 2 6 ft monster cables (the lowest kind, 15$ a pop) and 1 3 foot of the same kind. These cables buzz. Like a frickin bee. And a ****ty livewire cable i have, has no buzz. Did i just get a bunch of lemons, or is this true of all the **** monsters. They still have the lifetime warrenty, just, i'm actually going to use it. I also have higher up monster cables and they work fine. Ultimately, I need 3 new cables that will last without the buzz... do you know where i can find this for 42$ (one of them is between pedals, the other two are pedal-amp. Thank you folks.

...If you already have higher end Monster cables and a Livewire, why did you need the lowest-end Monster? My cable doesn't buzz. Try a replacement.

****ty Livewire cables?

I beg to differ, they are quite awesome cables for the price, I'd say better than Monster in some cases.

Those monster have lifetime warranties, do they not? Use that and get replacements. And you'll still get buzz, the low-end ones suck ass.

Yeah part of me is wondering why you bought any Monster cables when you already have "****ty" Livewire's that work great.

Return Monster for Livewire cables if you don't like them.

It won't matter...

I speak with experience saying that these things buzz for some and any reason.
Hook them up to a wah, with gain all the way up and it's ... it's ....

Seriously TS, see if you can return them and get some Livewires, they may be "****ty" to you, but at least there is no buzz.

My worry with the live wires is that they will short, as my ****ty one does that from time to time.

99.9% of the time, when a cable shorts out, it's the connection at the end.
learn some soldering skills and stop wasting your money on these "lifetime warranty" cables.
