Works good, cable diameter is smaller than expected.
By David Hostetler
I am remodeling my home office and recording / practice studio space. I bought this to replace a shorter cable that wasn't quite long enough for what I was doing. I use this to connect my XLR line out of my bass amplifier to an input on my mixer. Pretty simple, unamplified signal that needed 5 more feet of cable than my prior cable could provide.
Simply put, my bass amp is on one side of a doorway, the desk where the mixer is, is on the other, and I am running the cable up and over the door. This cable is running along with a 30' 1/4" TRS cable that connects guitar amp to mixer. (Same situation, guitar amp is on top of the bass amp).
The item arrived quickly, the packaging was radically smaller than I had anticipated. I was expecting a much larger diameter cable than they used. This could be unrealistic expectations though. This is signal not amplified power cabling after all. I am used to using instrument and XLR cables with tweed jackets so they tend to be much larger in diameter. Even for a silicone jacketed cable this is a bit on the thin side, but not bad. Much thicker than my silicone jacketed mic cables...
The end connectors attached solidly, and make proper connections without inducing any noise in the signal path.
I have only used it for one night so far, so I can't attest to durability, but with the cable routing, if there was going to be noise from electric motors / structure wiring etc... it would have happened by now. So I will say so far so good...
I am knocking it one star with potential for coming back later and going down further due to the diameter / gauge of the cable. The lightness gives me concern for longevity, but for now it works great.

High Quality with Crisp Sound
Having been a performing professional for well over 20 years...I've finally found a cable that impresses me. While there is NOBODY immune to a glitch (bad performance, defective wire, trying to sing karaoke while drunk, etc..), my experience with GLS Audio products has been excellent. The heads on these cables are very heavy duty, the wire is substantial without being unmanageable, and the sound reproduction is fantastic! The XLR plug has a rubber seal that is usually reserved for much more expensive cords. The Rubber Seal provides for a snugger, more secure fit which translates into less noise and longer wear for the pins. Do not hesitate to purchase these cords. It is true that you get what you pay for...but sometimes you're paying for greed or advertising. Not a worry for this product or any of the other GLS products that I use. ...and NO!! I am not a paid spokesperson; just a professional that tells it the way I experience it.

Awesome cables - don't settle for less
By Geoffrey D. Hoffman
GLS Audio has been a family company since 1968. If you care about the quality of your music, you should care about the quality of your cables! I always buy GLS cables if I can - you can easily feel the difference - and the sound is crystal clear. They're very supple and easy to work with and roll up and unroll easier than other cables.
