The D’Addario Modular Snake System makes it easy to customize the cable configuration to your specific needs by using the desired length of Core Cable and Breakout Systems. In addition to those breakouts, D’Addario is now offering the 8-channel Stage Box which includes 4 female XLR jacks along with 4 female XLR/1/4" combo jacks in a compact, rugged enclosure. The combo jacks allow you to connect 1/4" output devices to your mixer or to return audio from the mixer back to the stage. The small foot print makes it perfect for both home recording and live stage applications. The Stage Box works especially well as drum set snake or a satellite sub box on larger stages.
