The EWI PSX-8 series snake could be classified as a sub-snake or a drop-snake because of the 8 channel construction since these are commonly used as a cross stage run snake tied into the main snake avoiding a mess of individual mic cables across the stage.
Both the fantail and stage box are all XLR. This is strictly a send snake, as there are no return lines.
The stage box is very heavy duty and well labeled. The fantail is also heavy duty, color coded to groups and very well labeled. The main trunk is constructed with EWI SMC cable which is 8 individual shielded pairs, 22 ga., high copper purity conductors with double aluminum foil shield and trace wire, which is heavy duty, and very flexible.
Strain relief at the stage box and fantail is provided with mesh grip style hanger at the fantail, and rubber compression aluminum cable clamp at the stagebox.
The panel jacks are the buttonless "spring loaded" style with composite (non metallic) bodies. The fantail is constructed with EWI ES3MB-GDP black shell with gold contact point MXLR connectors.
This is a quality built snake suitable for professional applications. It even comes with a nifty blue bag to protect the fantail when not in use.
Genuine Liechtenstein Neutrik® XLR connectors on the stage box and fantail are now available on select lengths. The Neutrik equipped snakes feature Neutrik® "XX" series cord ends and Neutrik® NC3PP series panel jacks on the stage box. Click here for pictures.
