This ¼” TRS 24 channel patch snake is a specialty item. It’s primary function is to patch effects to a mix console or patch a mix console to a recording/playback device. The overall length is from tip to tip. The fantails are approximately 24” each with a functional spread of about 46”. The channels are color grouped (red, blue, white, and yellow) with 4 channels per color group. Since all the ends are fully wired to the TRS ¼” connectors, this snake can be used for balanced or possibly unbalanced patching.
The MT series cable itself is constructed with EWI SMM series cable with 99.98% pure 22ga. high strand count copper conductors and individually jacketed pairs shielded by 100% coverage spiral shield on each pair. The KT series cable is constructed with EWI SMK series cable with 99.98% pure 25ga. high strand count copper conductors and individually jacketed pairs shielded by 100% coverage spiral shield on each pair. The connectors are all EWI ES3B-GDP XLR models, black anodized cast zinc XLR bodies with gold plated contacts.
Both fantails are clearly labeled 1 through 24 as well as each conductor in the colored groups labeled the length of the conductor 1 through 4 in each group. The channel labeling is with indelible ink and is very durable and fairly easy to read. The snake is equipped with mesh grip strain relief hangers on each end. The snake is assembled with 9 inch long clear shrink tube on both ends to facilitate adding function labeling if so desired, or the clear shrink tube could easily be removed if this feature is not needed. This effects snake was designed by users to be user friendly.
