8 channel multicore at this price?
19.12.2015
I bought this multicore to make life easier when mic'ing my drums on stage, a few shorter leads into a long multicore seemed like a good idea. I was right!

I would love to know how Thomann can produce these at this price, I can't even get all the plugs for this money, at least not ones of the same quality! The plugs are solid, giving a very reassuring click as you plug them in, you'll never pull one of these out by accident.

I also use this cable when recording live bands so it was important that there was no cross talk between the cores. I've run many tests running hot signals and low signals through at the same time, I can detect nothing. There is zero bleed or interference on any of the cores, even when running parallel to mains cables, the shielding is astounding!

The markings as to which plug is which can be a little difficult to see in the dark but you can't have everything! Some coloured coding rings would make life easier but that's the kind of thing that starts to put the price up.

I had seen other reviews stating that some of the soldering was quite poor in places, I was all set to sort out any issues, but I didn't find any. Every joint is perfectly fine with no excess copper that could lead to a short circuit.

The only negative thing I could say is that the lead is quite chunky, it can be a real pain to coil back up, but I'd rather do it once with this lead than do 8 leads any day of the week.

Another great product from Thomann!

Cheap but decent

Make sure to test the snake with a cable tester (e.g. behringer ct200). I've ordered 3 snakes and 1 had a fault at cable 7. I resoldered it and it tests positive on the cable tester now. You don't want to arrive at a gig with a single cable not working. :P

Another great snake from Thomann
HowieCapowie, 03.07.2019
Great snake, I use it to mic up our drums. Clear numbers on both ends of the cable makes it easy to know what goes where. I use additional cables on the "loose" ends to mic up the rest of the drum set, but the kick mic is connected directly to the cable on the snake.

For this price there is not much to nitpick... Sound is pretty decent.
A snake with a box in one end would probably look even tidier, but in stead of having 8 single cables running to the mixer, it is all in one large cable. and a box would add to the cost.
