SNAKE 8 WAY 30m Heavy Duty Mk 2
8 way SNAKES
This range of Cable Snakes are professionally made and designed for on the road use or within a studio environment.
Both the cable connectors and the chassis XLRs on the box are of all metal construction, not cheap plastic versions. The Precision XLR plugs are labelled with the appropriate channel numbers. The multicore is designed to be easily flexed because it uses spirally wound copper screening, not foil screening which can fail if repeatedly flexed at the same point. It is well protected at it’s most vulnerable point by a flexible strain relief.
An anti tangle plate stops leads becoming tangled. Slide the yellow plate along the path of the 8 exposed cables and leads automatically free themselves.
A lug is secured to one end of the box for storage purposes or for securing the box to a wall. The box is of a heavy gauge steel with a durable black powder coating. The box comes complete with a handy protection bag.
Available in the following lengths -
5 metres Code 588660
10 metres Code 588670
30 metres Code 588680
Boffin Bazza comments.
The Studiospares 8 way Snake series success relies on the length of time it has evolved. Small features such as the use of nickel plated sockets on the box help to locate the connectors in dimly lit stages.
Vulnerable cable failures inside the connectors are always at the point the cable exits the strain relief. This failure possibility is addressed by the cable going through a jacket which is them clamped to the connector. That way the cable is not crushed by the clamping action of the cable retainer. The flexibility of the XLR’s boot further reduces the chance of cable failures through repeated bending.
The anti tangle plate stops cables being yanked free through being tangled. Just slide the plate along the length of the exposed cables and they free up instantly.
