me and my friends are in a small band and have started to do some home recording. The gear we have is 16 input mixer, 4 dynamics, 1 condenser, 2 shotgun (used on drums), 5 drum mics, 2 guit, 1 bass. We are not short for cash but also need new cables. We would like for the drum set to make a 20-25 foot snake. This would free up the cables we need. This is my main question. I have what i believe to be 20 or 22 gauge speaker wire. I am wondering if i run 8 septate lines and then a single ground (green wire)that will split at the ends of the snake to go to each input and each output. My concerns are can I use the speaker wire without problems? And can i use a single ground? By problems i mean interference. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
