D'Addario (formerly Planet Waves)' Circuit Breaker™ cables have a built-in mute switch to save your equipment from loud pops and squeals when you change guitars with a live amp. When the button is pushed, the cable mutes while remaining plugged into your guitar, making on-stage guitar changes a snap. Once the cable is muted, remove the cable from the guitar being used and plug the cable into the next instrument. Press the button again to re-activate the cable signal. LIFETIME GUARANTEE!
