Yet another product which is useless.

Who on EARTH wants to ever use an 80ft guitar cable?

Sorry, but I just cannot wrap my head around this.

I have, for many years. The guitars are active and have no cable driving losses so I like to get around. I've been know to stroll out the house mixer to give "suggestions" or check the mix.

Radio rigs don't sound right to me either.

I used the STD to go through the parch between the control room and the recording space. For this kind of task i find it very useful. I use no pedals and single coil guitars so the signal needs to be buffered with a device like this to avoid noise.
Hope somebody has one and can take a picture of the circuit board so i can try to fix the cable.

Say you want to run guitar cable from one room to another- keep the guitarist in with the drummer but isolate the amp.
To make matters handier it travels through xlr so you can plug the guitar into a snake or wall panel.

In Ye Olde Metal days we would place the amp next to the player but run the speaker in another room. 8 ohms is low impedance and travels to the next room well if you use good cables.

True that. Which is why my studio has both xlrs and speaker cables through the walls between the live room and the iso room. So many choices.
