Inexpensive Audio snake.
I was pretty excited to get a good deal on this bundle of wire! The SEISMIC AUDIO 12 Channel 25' XLR Snake Cable with 1/4" connectors. There are a couple of things you should know before buying! First of all It's plastic. I mean EVERYTHING is plastic with the exception of the Nickel xlr's and housing (bottom & sides are metal). And the cabling to the XLR is pretty thin. I had serious doubts. I plugged it in and everything was fully functional. It even sounds good! No hiss or signal degradation. I have had this for about 2 years and do at least 20 hours a week of recording with it. That being said, I think its okay for studio or indoor use. But there's no way in H*ll this would stand up to touring rigs or high traffic areas! I could have spent more and got a "higher quality" snake. But I've delt with Seismic Audio customer service dept. and they were always great (send extra parts for free). It works pretty well (especially for the price) but you might consider other cables as well.
