So i just made 100 meters of XLRs using the Sommer cables and the gold plated black Neutrick ends.
I figured that after i had made all of these the last thing i would want is a bag with a spaghetti monster in it, especially with other band members helping pack down gear and their terrible ability at coiling cables.
If your doing live sound or running a studio, you need cable ties! Not only do they preserve the lifetime of your cables but they make you look just that little bit more professional. Instead of your client or band members watch you wrestle the end out of a ball of string you can just set up, plug in and play.
The size on these is great for all cables, I use these with my 6 meter XLRs and my 15 meter ones and because these are so large they wrap around fine. Any excess length and you can just wrap it around the cable a few more times and stick in on with the Velcro.
Sometimes they slide off, i may have to go around my cables and superglue these on because they aren't the cheapest thing to just loose multiple lots off.
The build quality is great, just a big piece of Velcro onto some fairly stable material. The metal loop is of good quality and overall i cant see there being any problems.
Good build quality
Helps you be professional
Extends lifetime of cables
Saves time uncoiling cables
Expensive when you have to buy a few packs of these - worth it though
Get these to protect your cables and stop you spending hours uncoiling them! I use these for live gigs with a large pa and in the studio to keep things running smoothly and it's these little bits of gear that make a difference.
