I tested out the Stage Ninja 26-Foot Instrument Cable (MSRP $64.99). This ninja doesn’t assassinate musicians on stage, but addresses the ubiquitous need to eliminate the cable spaghetti that easily accumulates after even seemingly careful wiring in stage and studio.
One end of the Stage Ninja has a fixed 6-foot section of cable that winds neatly around the side of the unit. The remaining 20 feet of cable winds out of the spring-loaded Stage Ninja ready to go and tangle free. The cable comes out, snaps into a locked position, and recoils back inside the unit with ease. The hard shell plastic shell can stack easily with other Stage Ninja cable reels. This unit is solid and performs well, the cable is of good quality, and the ends are solid; this unit is road-ready.
The retail price on the unit is $64.99. This is comparable to good quality instrument cables of similar length. The unit is compact enough and light enough to not take up any more space than it needs to store this amount of cable.
If you are the kind that is fanatic about winding your cables, the Stage Ninja will make tear-down faster and keep everything neat. Given its weight and size, I would not suggest the Stage Ninja to wire your guitar pedals together, but when you actually need 26 feet of cable, this is a great unit.
Though I tested the instrument cable version, the Stage Ninja product line includes about every kind of cable the working musician could need. If, however, they don’t have just exactly what you need, they will custom make cables of varying types and lengths to meet your specifications. I’m headed off to get a couple of the power cable versions…
