A very short review of the Smart cable (silent pro)
These are great quality cables, the silent pro version cable cuts out the signal when unplugged, allowing me to say “yes the cable earned it’s name the “Smart” Cable “
This jacks ends on the Smart cables are made by Neutrik, a very well known and reputable company,. The silent pro boast the retractable sheath that cuts off the signal when pulled out of the guitar. This function is useful for recording for when your changing guitars, it’s useful if your lead gets stepped on and pulled out, as this will save damaged speakers and eardrums.
The Nuetrik ends on all the smart cables also come right-angled for fitting into tighter pedal board spaces. It is also ideal for those who put their leads into their guitar strap as this angle suits this position very well giving it double security.
The cable itself has a tough, firm, quality feel to it and the cabling is definitely worth the quality Neutrik ends attached to it. This cable comes in 10ft, 15ft and 20ft lengths to suit all live and studio needs.
I’ve used my Smart Cable for a month now and I can honestly say it is a great lead. I’ve opened the ends up and inside the soldering is very professional and tidy plus the jacks have hermetically sealed shielding for avoiding those cheap cable, hiss, pops, squeals and crackling.
The guarantee is for a lifetime, against faulty parts or workmanship; this is very good for a lead as reasonable priced as the Smart Cable range is.
