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.
I have one of these snakes installed in my studio. I use it to extend the length of another snake that connects some of the soundcard outputs to the headphone amps for quite monitoring during live takes.
It's been working over one year without a single issue. Sure: once the cable is laid, it doesn't get moved around a lot. However, there have been people walking over it and even stomping over it, and there's been undue traction straining the connectors on one end. All these small accidents haven't done the product any harm.
The labelling is effective and helps a lot in keeping things organized. Colour coding could be a plus especially in live situations where you have little help, but it's not really important if you are using it as I am. Actually, I haven't had to trust one of these snakes with live performance yet, since I don't do PA. However, if I had a gig where for any reason I need to supply the cables, I would be confident enough to give this snake a try in a more demanding setting.
