Colour Coded!
06.04.2016
By September this year, I will have been playing in bands for 34 years and it's only just dawned on me that coloured XLR leads would be to my advantage. To be fair, it's only in recent years that I have sought to mic up everything so maybe it's only just become an issue. It's an absolute nightmare trying to figure out which black XLR cable is going where, so as many coloured leads as possible is going to be my way forward.

I have bought Sssnake cables before (just only the black ones). In my opinion, their quality is acceptable; and just like everything else in the Thomann range, they represent good value for money. No doubt there are some gearphiles on here who have to have the top brand, and that's fair enough; but for a part-time, now-amateur player, like myself, I can't see the point in spending more.

These leads haven't let me down so I can't see why I would want to pay more. I can't hear any noise from them either, so I have to say that they are great value. The XLR leads look sturdy enough, so unless you have some really clumsy players in your band, I would go for these, particularly for live sound!

One last thing. An old XLR lead went down, which prompted me to order from Thomann. I would have had to have waited until the following weekend to go out and get a replacement (or two), yet Thomann's delivery arrived in the middle of the week (from Germany!). I can't fault their service, nor their speed of delivery.

Good and decent cable
HowieCapowie, 03.07.2019
Use this for microphones in our rehearsal room/studio. Works fine. looks cool, and sound pretty decent for the price. Can't say that i can hear a noticable bad sound. My guess is that you had to pay considerable more to find a cable that would sound better.

Just buy it
AnEng, 30.08.2017
Good cable, good connectors, slightly lighter than some, which makes a big difference when you've got a bag full of them ! The connectors are strong and have been soldered on nicely. I don't see the need to spend any more than this on a mic lead. The fact that it comes in different colours is a bonus - it makes identifying leads on stage so much easier. Highly recommended.

I use it for my mic and I don't think it alters the sound much, or at least not noticeably. It's solid and still works after a few years. This cable seems just as good as any other pricier cable.

Nice cable
Nikolay6708, 26.04.2019
If you are looking for quality and price this is the cable! I have bunch of those ones and they work as fine as the most expensive ones. I use them for microphones and DI box connections. So far so good, no problems with them whatsoever. The only cons if it might be a cons is that will be good if they come with cable ties out of the box.

Kristaps S., 14.02.2017
Perfect cables for a perfect price. Cheap cables are out of work in a few months, but these are working already more than one year every weekend. And I hope that they will work more and more. Sound quality very normal both for in-ear monitor use and microphones.

As good as the yellow version!
buddhuu, 11.08.2017
I just reviewed the yellow equivalent of this cable and gave it full marks.

What can I say about this one? well, it's blue. Other than that, it's the same good quality, excellent value kit as the yellow one.

I've been using these cables on stage and they are doing great. I'm going to grab a few more soon. You can never have too may spare cables.

mike lead
Richard1631, 12.10.2015
A good quality bright mike lead. Does the job and you won't fall over it as you can see it against the floor! (Important if you're getting older) My wife actually got a black mike lead and her black banjo lead wrapped around her legs at a festival this year while playing! I had to untangle this mess while wearing a guitar and that's what convinced me to get a couple of these.

Solid build can withstand heavy use.
ThompsonTech, 08.02.2018
We have twelve of these in use in a secondary school Music Dept.
So far after around ten months of hard use from kids we've only had one solder joint break on a pin which is really very good considering the price. No loose connections, crackles or faults at all.
The connections and barrels are of a good heavy quality and I really can't fault these leads at all.
Highly recommend.

Super. Does the job.
markodarko, 11.01.2015
Not gigged with this lead much but it looks like it could stand up to some heavy gigging. It's certainly quiet in operation when plugged into my PA.

I've always previously made my own mic and guitar leads, but you can't even buy the Neutrik XLR connectors (let alone the cable!) for this price. It's bonkers.

A no-brainer really. If you want a mic lead, all you need to fret over is which colour to go for! :-)

All good with this

I got different colours so that I could easily see which instrument was which in the mixer... and I use them a lot, without any problems.

They've not broken down within the yea rI@ve been using them constantly - so I'd recommend you buy them now.

Good price...and great service

6 years and still performing well
Cotton Head, 25.06.2013
I have had a set of these sssnake cables of various colours for 6 years and they are still performing well.

They are soft and flexible and coil easily. Being of various colours they are easy to identify on stage.

The XLR connectors are robust with a good click action.

What else can be said cables are cables except that these are a bit of good kit.

One other point, I was in need of a couple of shorter cables and had spare XLR connectors in my tool box so with a bit of cutting and soldering I had the cables I needed. These cables are easy to strip and solder well.

Great for project studio!
24.04.2016
I got a few of these leads in various colours, and after a few months, I got a few more!

The leads do not feel cheap, the sound quality has not been compromised for budget, and the colour-coding makes routing that bit easier!

My only niggle with these is that the connectors themselves feel a little light. I don't think they're in danger of breaking as long as they are taken care of, but you can see the difference between these and connectors on cables 3x the price.

I cannot recommend these enough for a home studio. A professional studio may cause the kind of wear that these couldn't take though. However, in that case they're great spares!

XLR-XLR.
Peter R. 438, 19.11.2014
These cost almost 3 times more in my local music shop & I have no choice in the colour or length.
Cost of fuel driving round local music shops to find one (never two wires the same colour or length)???
Thomann take 3 days to deliver.

3 year guarantee as well.
