The EWI MTFM / KTFM -12 series snakes are professional quality dual fantail XLR patch snakes. This snake is typically used to extend a snake, used as a drop snake, or used for patching effects. Longer versions are commonly used for drive snakes.
The male XLR fantail end has a mesh grip strain relief. On each XLR fantail, the channels are clearly labeled with indelible ink printed on the tubing at each connector. The channels are labeled 1 through 12, and they are color coded in groups of 4 each. The groups are bundled with 3 short, loose fitting pieces of clear loom that can be slid up or down the fantail as desired. This helps keep the fantails from getting tangled and facilitates easy channel identification. The fantail length is about 20" giving you about a 36" to 38" functional spread.
The 75 ft., 100 ft., and 200 ft. versions are typically used as drive snakes to send the return signal from the FOH mix position to the amp racks on stage. These lengths have approximately 22" fantails, and a mesh grip strain relief hanger at each fantail.
