Poorly made cable. Sound is scratchy, or only on one side. It's like it picks a side to let sound through. Not worth the expense of returning. Total disappointment. I won't be buying another Pig Hog product if they're this poorly made brand new.
I bought a cheaper, thinner Hosa cable to replace it. It works flawlessly! I've never had a problem with Hosa even though they look cheap and poorly made. Pig Hog looks well made, but is junk. Go figure?
