This is a great product, especially for crowded pedalboards.
People who say these don't plug completely into MXR or Electro Harmonix pedals are wrong. They fit just fine. The same goes for the supposed issue with the "pancakes" inhibiting plugging in a power supply. It's not an issue. See the attached picture.

Value pedalboard. Check plug size issues w/your pedal brand.
By Ivan Lomeli
These are the inexpensive alternative to get a neat pedalboard.
Short as needed. The cable seems thin but it may be properly shielded as I have no hum/noise issues.
The plug is its best/worst feature.
The pancake design is thin enough to squeeze pedals in my pedalboard at will. The same design mildly obstructs the power input of my mxr pedals (1-2mm) so it 'pushes' the power plug bending it slightly. I'm using a 1spot, so it may work well with other power adapters -I doubt it given the small space-. It also may not be an issue with your flavor of pedals.
Already bought a couple of these bundles.
Pedalboard newbies should consider adding a couple of 1.5 ft and 3ft patch cables. Just to move things around.

Excellent Quality Cables (But They Are Patch Cables So You Don't Need Anything Spectacular Anyways)
I've recently been buying a few pedals for my guitar set up. I realized I didn't have any short cables to go between pedals so I bought these because they were relatively inexpensive. Before I go into this though, I want you to realize that I'm not just a hobbyist musician, I am a semi-professional meaning I regularly gig and make money doing it. I've been playing guitar for 10 years, playing bass for longer, and I've done plenty in the technology side of things including sound system design/installation and recording. I have built cables, I have used high end cables from Mogami, Monster, Lava, Fender, Planet Waves, and several other brands. Trust me, I know the benefits that come from having high end quality cables.
That being said, here's the deal. For short patch cables, these Hosa 6" cables work great. They are so short in length that you really don't have to worry much about tone and signal loss especially if you get something like the CMAT Mods Buffer to put at the beginning of your signal chain. They have a really nice build quality to them and the flat connectors allow you to place your pedals really close to each other. For patch cables, they work great, I have no issues with tone loss or cables going bad. Additionally, my father has a set of these cables that he's been using for many years and not once has he had an issue with them so I know that these cables are very durable. Don't be fooled by the price of these patch cables, they may be relatively cheap but they are definitely quality cables.
