I got this for our three piece acoustic trio as I was getting fed up with the mess of wires along the front of the band. Now all replaced by one multicore. The length is just right for us.
We use four of the leads as inputs (Violin, mandolin and two microphones), and I have re-placed two of the XLR's with jacks to take the monitor feeds back from the mixer. I will swap the XLR's of one other channel to carry the feed to the powered PA speaker. So it is quite easy to adapt this for differing requirements.
I found it easy to solder, it works well and not only looks better but saves time in setting up. I am sure other, more expensive multi-cores, are sturdier and may last longer, but overall I think this is great value for money.
