Monster Rock M ROCK2-12A – 12′ Instrument Guitar Cable (Discontinued)

89 out of 100. Incorporating 150+ ratings and reviews.

Gearank Recommendation

This was on our recommended list for Guitar / Instrument Cables from December 2016 until January 2018. The reason we took it off the list is because some of the newer customer reviewers had given it lower 5 star ratings resulting in its Gearank score falling below the threshold when we conducted a major review of the category.


If you’re asking how a guitar cable would cost this much, Monster Cable will point you to its features – patented time correct windings which they say help improve sound transfer, the extra-flexible Duraflex jacket and IsoTec vibration isolation that helps reduce operation noise.

They also employ what they call multi-gauge design, and they claim that as a whole, the cable’s design helps alleviate unwanted hum, crackles, and drop outs.

So far, the company has been doing really well, maintaining their foothold on the premium guitar cable market having had big name artists like Scott Ian, Zakk Wylde and Kerry King recommending their products.
