The Planet Waves Classic Series patch cable is easily one of the most popular in the market today, thanks to its simplicity and affordability.

There's nothing out of the ordinary with its specs, and even its appearance is straightforward.

But what it lacks in extras, it makes up for with its build quality, which translates into durability and reliability. This is all thanks to its molded strain relief and nickel-plated plugs, which give it the ability to handle the rigors of traveling and performances.


  • Pack: 3 pcs
  • Plug: Right Angle Nickel Plated
  • Conductor: OFC
  • Shield: 90% OFC Spiral
  • Length: 6"
  • Variant: 12"


Most reviewers point to the Planet Waves Classic Series' value for money as its greatest strength. And since it is also reliable, you end up getting more from your money with its longevity.


Those who prefer to modify or repair their cables will not like the molded plug design, which is tricky to repair. Thankfully, there's really no need for any repairs, given that you take reasonably good care of the cable.


We were recommending these patch cables until we did a thorough review of the category in July 2018 and at that time there were more highly rated options which we have recommended in our guide to The Best Guitar Patch Cables & Pedal Couplers.
