I am getting really tired of having 50 million cables running all over my studio... But since this is a home project studio, I do not have any permanently installed cabling, although I am considering it as an option. Right now, what I would like to do is to build a small 8-channel snake for the drum kit to run from one end of my studio to my recording desk (about 27 feet). I would then have just a single large-diameter cable stretched across the length of the room. Mogami makes some pretty good looking oxygen-free multipair cable that I can get for about US$2.20 a foot (8 channel). I am guessing that it is most likely 28 gauge wire. Am I going to lose signal quality by going with this multi-pair cable rather then the nice high-quality cables that I so pain-stakenly soldered? There has to be a better way then to have this spaghetti mess that everyone is tripping over. I am also making a headphone snake, but I am not as concerned about that... Comments? Thanks!!!
