        Comments about Hosa CBT-500 Cable Tester:

        If you have a lot of cables to keep track of, you are going to have some cables go bad. This cable tester is awesome. I use this to test out all my cables and it is a great investment. It has the ability to test out just about every type of cable that a musician could use on the road or in the studio. Don't let your band get on stage with cables that are having problems. Protect your sound and the quality of your show. This is a real hands on product review by EpR@ Sam Ash Music Ontario.
